When you decide that your kitchen cabinets are getting a little stale, there are plenty of different things that you can do in order to freshen up your cabinets and in turn, you can make small but significant changes to your kitchen itself to give it a more updated look.
The best part is any DIYer can handle this project as shown in Hometalk. Have some fun with your creativity to makeover your cabinets.
Check out the project in the pictures below:
1. Assess Your Kitchen
If you have outdated cabinets one of the things that ends up happening is it draws attention to the different areas of your kitchen that you may not intend. Find what can accentuate the great features of your kitchen, and work from there.
2. Use Your Light Effectively
One of the worst things homeowners do when making over kitchens is not paying attention to light. Natural light is great at making your kitchen really shine and all the small details contribute to an overall greater impression.
3. Use Colors with Efficacy
When you have a lot of natural light, then using bold colors makes sense. Also, if you don’t have much in the way of natural light, you would want more subtlety and lighter colors. Too many light colors in a kitchen with lots of natural light will look washed out.
4. Great Hardware Adds to Your Design
Having the right cabinet handles and pulls can add to your design. For example, if you have stainless steel appliances having stainless steel handles creates more thematic fluency within your kitchen.
5. Use Contrast Effectively
Though you want thematic fluency in the sense of the cabinet hardware, light fixtures are a great place to add some contrast. The reason you add contrast it is allows the different elements of your kitchen to come alive. Be careful – if you are using plastic handles, don’t add metallic light fixtures, because then your kitchen looks disjointed.
