Kitchen Remodels Made Simple: What To Do About Your Cabinets

When you are trying to update or remodel your kitchen, you have many options for what you want to change and/or replace, and how you wish to do so. However, when it comes to certain elements, like your kitchen cabinets, you might be stuck for ideas. After all, you have grown used to your cabinetry and know precisely where all of your dishes and other kitchen odds and ends go, and you may not particularly want to change that. But, you do want to spruce up your cabinets to go along with your kitchen remodeling project. So, get to know some of the options available to give your kitchen cabinets an update along with the rest of your kitchen.

Add A Splash Of Color

You may not think that repainting your kitchen cabinets will make much of a difference when you are making so many other adjustments in your kitchen. However, going from a classic wood grain or white cabinet to a bright and colorful paint job can make those old kitchen cabinets look brand new. 

If your walls and floors are neutral tones, you can go to town with the color of your cabinets. The color you choose depends on your taste and goals. If, for example, you want a kitchen the stimulates your energy and appetite, you should choose warm colors like shades of yellow, red, and orange. But if you want to feel calm and even suppress your appetite in your kitchen (if you are trying to lose or control weight), you may want to choose cools shades such as blue or green.

If you are feeling particularly creative, you can make your cabinets two-tone, in which the cabinet doors are bright and colorful and the cabinet itself is neutral. Or you can add colorful stenciling to neutral cabinets for just a hint of color. So, let your creative side loose and start playing with color.

Try Going Doorless

To make your kitchen feel more open and modern, you may want to try something a little different and slightly outside of the box. To do so, all you need to do is remove the cabinet doors completely. 

Open cabinetry can make your kitchen feel larger, can turn your dishes into a display item, and will make our kitchenware more easily accessible. So, if you are feeling adventurous and are trying to maximize your space, consider the possibility of open frame cabinets. 

However if you are not comfortable having no protective barrier for your kitchenware when in your cabinetry, you can also replaces solid kitchen cabinet doors with glass to get the best of both worlds. You still keep your kitchenware protected, but can simultaneously display it and make your kitchen look bigger.

As you can see, there are options available to update your kitchen cabinetry during your kitchen remodel that are quick, easy, and do not require you to replace your cabinets completely. For more information, contact Garlock Lumber & Hardware or a similar company.
