6 Ways to Spruce Up Your Kitchen Cabinets

While kitchen cabinets may seem like a fairly straightforward part of any home, you would be surprised by how creative can you be with shelves and hinged doors. That means that if you’ve been thinking about renovating your kitchen, the cabinets are the perfect low-commitment, high-impact place to start. Many of these projects can be completed inexpensively and in a single weekend, giving new life to your old kitchen without the hassle of a complete renovation.
Here are 6 ways to rethink, refinish, and revitalize your kitchen cabinets:

  1. Starting from the inside out, a good way to make your cabinets feel new again is to rethink the shelving to maximize the potential of the space. For some, that may mean raising a shelf to add the clearance that your extra tall bottle of olive oil needs. For others, it may mean adding a half-height shelf to store your ever-growing spice collection. You can also install pull-out shelving in the base cabinets to make everything easily accessible.
  2. Paint! Using a light color will really open up the space, painting a bright color can provide an excellent pop of color without being overbearing, or refinishing your kitchen cabinets in a warm, earthy tone can make the entire space instantly feel cozy. This can easily be accomplished in a single weekend, and the possibilities are virtually endless.
  3. Replace your standard knobs. All it takes is a screwdriver and a few spare minutes, but the impact such a small change can have may surprise you. Consider mismatched knobs in coordinating colors to add a little extra personality.
  4. Install under-cabinet lighting. The direct light on your counters will make chopping safer and easier, and the glow adds a nice effect to the overall look and feel of the kitchen.
  5. Consider open shelving to display any particularly interesting dishes, glassware, or mugs that you may have collected throughout the years.
  6. If you want your cabinets to look expensive without actually spending that money, add crown molding. In addition to standing out for looking perfectly customized for the space, crown molding helps bring the whole room together.
