Remodeling Kitchen Cabinets

Remodeling kitchen cabinets manually saves cash and allows you to choose the fashion and shade of the doors. If the cabinet is damaged it may require additional than the normal coat of paint. Reface the cabinet with unusual ideas for a one of a kind kitchen that you can create yourself.

1) Refacing Whole Cabinets:
Refacing whole kitchen cabinets expenses less money than buying new. For a wood front, resurface the cabinets with wood surface. You'll need to take off the doors and unscrew the hardware and hinges before you start. A degreaser and sandpaper gets the surface prepared for veneer. Affix the veneer with spray adhesive and a pneumatic nailer. Go on with the steps on the cabinet sides. Use a laminate cutter and veneer with adhesive already applied for the cabinet trim.

Put wallpaper to the front of cabinets using decoupage glue. Look for a cheery berry print for a country or retro kitchen. Damask patterned wallpaper gives an stylish feel to a room. Blow up a method and print it out to decoupage the front of cabinet doors for vivid visual appeal.

2) Additional Elements
Adding elements to your cabinetry is an easy and cheap way to resurface doors. Your kitchen can become a photo gallery. Paint a little picture frame the same color as the cabinet door. Put your picture in the frame and attach it to the door with screws. Use floral prints for a Victorian kitchen or family photos for a gushy cabinet door. Place the photo treatment on just a few focal cupboard doors so it doesn't become overwhelming. Black adds a contemporary touch to cabinetry, but it can also be helpful. Use chalkboard paint on door fronts for a stylish message board. Install a piece of molding on the base of the cabinet for a place to put chalk. Magnetic paint under the paint color of your alternative makes for a useful cabinet refinishing project. Large dot magnets add a modern feel to cupboards.

Add trim to a flat panel door for attention. A customary door has trim around the edge or a few inches from the end of the door. For a modern trim accent, reface the door with strips of wood. Place the strips in a random grid-work pattern for an architectural element.

3)Cabinet Cut outs:
Cut outs allow you to replace the center of kitchen cabinets with a new surface removing any scratched parts. Paint the rest of the door for a new look. Cut out the center of the door with a jigsaw and a router. Replace it with whimsical fabric panels or frosted glass in a modern kitchen.
