Remodeling an old cabinet is one way to make this item new and stylish again. Some people do not want to waste a lot of money for purchasing a new kitchen cabinet. It can make them end up spending a whole lot of money due to the expensive price of a kitchen cabinet in the store. A standard cabinet is often sold in the price of $500 to $1,000. If you purchase a high end cabinet, you have to prepare more money. The cabinet that you already have had at home can be refaced by using a new finish or color. You can also change the old doors with new ones to add a stylish character in the kitchen. There are a lot of options available to renew the appearance of a cabinet.
Refacing is an Option
You can save a lot of money by refacing an old cabinet. Give a new quality on the cabinet by repainting the entire doors. If you have a modern kitchen design, white color is superb to have. It can be matched with black ceramic backsplash and white granite countertop. There are many other colors to choose other than white. Some people are bored with white due to the clean and cold look. You can add a bold tone on the cabinet door with red, black, navy blue or hunter green. But make sure that the walls are painted in soft tone to reduce the dark feeling in the room. Another refacing idea is by having a new stained or finished cabinet. You can apply a dark brown tone on the cabinet to evoke a natural look and formal quality. If you have a bamboo kitchen cabinet, it is nice to finish in soft brown tone.
New Hardware is Fun
If you have done refacing the old cabinet, create a unique look by replacing the hardware. The distressed hardware like pull and knobs are not enticing. You can install new copper, stainless steel, brushed nickel or sleek ceramic hardware. If you want to enjoy playful characters, install the colorful plastic hardware on a contemporary bamboo cabinet.
