Painting cabinets

Cabinets are often the focal point of your kitchen, but when it comes time to remodel, it can often seem an enormous expense. Luckily, it doesn’t always have to be! There are many easy or simple changes you can make to get your outdated cabinets looking fresh and new, and we have a few:

Get to Painting

When it comes to your cabinets, a fresh coat of paint can take old and dated from new and classic. Another bonus of paint — it’s affordable! Whether you go with a bold accent color a neutral shade, a fresh coat of paint can make your kitchen look brand new.


Tired of your old dated cabinet doors — take them off! Making your cabinets doorless is an excellent way to make your kitchen look bigger, too. Doorless shelves can open up space and are perfect for cabinets over the island, or anywhere that you use often.

Consider Crown Molding

Looking to add a more high-end look to your kitchen? Crown Molding can do just the trick. It adds height too! So if your builder-grade cabinets are in need of an upgrade, look into some beautiful crown molding.

Brighten it Up

Kitchen lighting can make or break a room. If you are looking to brighten a dim or dark kitchen, think layered lighting! Track lighting is a must, but you can also add in under cabinet lights and some fun accent pieces over a counter to add a pop of design into your home.

Try Some New Knobs

To change up your look, you can change up your knobs! An easy and cheap addition, custom knobs or drawer handles can be purchased at most home improvement stores and can give your cabinets a brand new feel. With a variety of styles to choose from, you can go classic, modern or antique in no time.
