Affordable Ways to Make Your Kitchen Cabinets Look New

The kitchen is the hub of most homes—a place where family and friends can come together to enjoy food and create memories. However, if your kitchen is lacking in function and aesthetics, it can affect the overall ambiance of the space. One way you can improve this, without spending an arm and a leg, is by revamping your kitchen cabinets. Since cabinets take up the majority of wall space in kitchens, upgrading them can completely transform the room from drab to fab without the hassle or hefty cost that often comes from a full-scale remodel.

Here are some affordable ways you can make your kitchen cabinets look like new:

Try Repainting or Re-Staining Dingy Cabinets

A fresh coat of paint can do wonders for kitchen cabinets that have faded over time or are sporting old grease and food stains. While this is an affordable project, keep in mind that it can also be a time consuming one - especially if your existing cabinets are extremely dirty or have some minor damage.

Before starting, you’ll want to spend ample time researching the best options for the following:

  • Cabinet door and drawer front preparation - this part is the most critical step of the entire process. You'll need to make sure all of the components are in top condition before reapplying primer, paint or stain. You might have to repair any marks or dents with wood putty and sand properly. If there are Cabinet Doors and Drawer Fronts that are beyond repair, you can order replacement unfinished cabinet doors and drawer fronts. If painting, paint grade hard maple or medium density fiberboard (MDF) are great low cost options.
  • Tools and supplies - Make sure you have all of the proper tools and supplies you'll need for a job this size. If your goal is to do this once and do it right then having the proper tools, sanding materials, paint brushes and rollers and the choose the best available primer, paints and stains for your application.
  • Paint or stain types - Choosing the right paints or stains for your DIY project will make sure that your finished product will turn out great. We recommend consulting with a local paint or home improvement store. If painting, we recommend using a primer first. Cabinet Doors 'N' More now offers cabinet doors and drawer fronts with white primer to save time and money for this important first step. You'll also want to research proper techniques for achieving a professional-grade painting job.

If you follow all of these steps for your Do-It-Yourself (DIY) remodeling project, you’ll have like-new cabinets with money to spare. To finish it all off you can  consider some other options to complete your project including upgrading your old cabinet drawer boxes with new solid wood dovetail drawers, new cabinet hardware or if you want to really splurge - new countertops!
