Kitchen renovations are among the most common renovation projects that people take on. Let’s face it, people spend a whole lot of time in the kitchen, so it’s only natural to want a space you feel comfortable in. With that said, kitchen renovations also happen to be the most expensive home renovation projects out there. Gutting the entire kitchen and starting from scratch may not be in the budget, but that doesn’t mean you can’t hire a renovator to take on smaller jobs that still make an impact.
One area you may want to focus on is the kitchen cupboards. Rather than tearing them all out and having to purchase brand new ones, it’s a good idea to get ideas from your contractor about what you can do to update them. Here are some common ways you can give the cupboards a makeover.
If you have wood cabinets that are faded, worn, and dated, there is no reason to rip them out. Instead, a fresh coat of paint or a stain will give them a new lease of life. You can choose one color for all your cupboards or take a more customized and luxe-look and paint the uppers a different color from the lower cabinets.
It can also be a great idea to cut out a section of a couple of the doors and have glass inlaid. Again this helps to create that luxurious and customized look without the process and expense of installing a custom kitchen.
Another tip is to add task lighting or under-lighting under the cabinets. This will be helpful when prepping at the counter, but it also creates atmosphere in the kitchen. Be sure to use energy-efficient LED lighting and put it on a dimmer, so you can control the brightness.
No makeover is complete without changing out the existing hardware. This will instantly update the cupboards and give them that new feeling.
Of course, the very best tip is to speak with a professional renovator who can provide you with ideas and inspiration and then get the job done.
