Cabinets are one of the most significant components of your home, and they can be very expensive. Investing in new kitchen or bathroom cabinets can save you money and improve the value and appeal of your home. If you are planning on moving, updating your kitchen and bathroom cabinets can make your house more attractive to potential buyers. Here are a few ways to breathe new life into your old cabinets  while also updating your home.

Paint cabinets

Old cabinets can be painted with a high gloss or semi-solid paint. Make sure that they are free of any old stains or finishes. For best results, you should seek advice from a home improvement or cabinet maker.

Change the Hardware

Cabinet hardware can add a new look to your kitchen or bathroom cabinets without replacing the physical door. Choose from various metal styles and finishes, such as copper, stainless steel, and brushed nickel. 

Add Crown Molding

If you have old kitchen cabinets that need some TLC, adding wood details such as dentils and crown molding can give them an upscale look. Cabinet detailing can add height and grandeur to any kitchen. To match the new woodwork to the existing ones, you can stain all of the components at the same period.

Reface cabinets

Old kitchen cabinets that are in good structural condition can be easily refaced. This process involves removing the old drawer fronts and doors and replacing them with new ones. A wood grain image can be applied to the existing boxes to achieve a more modern look. 

Remove the Doors

For people who like to display their dishware, partially open kitchen cabinets can serve as a decorative addition. This type of storage can also add interest to the walls and the kitchen.

Expand the Cabinets into Another Room

If you have a lack of storage space in your living room or dining room, consider adding new kitchen cabinets. Although replacing all of your old kitchen cabinets can be very expensive, adding several new ones can be a more cost-effective solution.

Your kitchen and bathroom cabinets represent your family’s commitment to quality and longevity. If you want to update the look of your old cabinets, follow these steps. Doing so can help you save money and make your home more attractive.
