are many aspects to consider in the kitchen remodeling
project you plan to do. Kitchen cabinets,
we could go on and on here! But, what you need to
begin with is a plan of action. You’ll want
to consider each element of your kitchen project
as its own project so that you get it right every
time. Let’s start with the cabinets. Here
are some ideas on how to completely give your kitchen
a new look by painting kitchen cabinets.
When we say paint kitchen cabinets, we are talking
about giving them a new look in one way or another.
This simple change will make an enormous difference
in your kitchen. Here are some options that we think
you should consider.
Let’s start with the
basics. You can just paint your kitchen
. Sanding them down and painting
is quite traditional. Another aspect
would be to stain them as well. Either of these
processes is fairly easy and straightforward.
Another way to give your kitchen
cabinets a new look is to pickle them! All you
need to do here is to paint on a light coating
of a flat, oil based paint. Before it dries, wipe
the paint off. You can wipe off as much or as
little as you like to allow for the grains to
show through. The look will be beautiful! If you
want it a little darker, just go back and do it
You can also use decorative
painting on your kitchen cabinets as
well. Yes, the same procedures you have used in
other rooms of your home can be applied here.
Think of ragging them or color washing them. You
can find those materials anywhere and the technique
is the same.
You can also have them refaced.
This is probably the most costly way of remodeling
them, but it will give the most change to the
room. If you simply do not like the color, texture,
and cut of your cabinets, refacing them is the
next best thing.
Lastly, sometimes all you need
is to give them a good cleaning! If you use a
bleaching chemical, the dirt and grime will come
off and it will lighten the color of the wood.
While we won’t call this remodeling, we
will call it a good way to lighten up the room
your kitchen is a combination of many elements.
You will want these elements to work together, but
you want them to have their own characteristics
as well. What you will find is that redoing your
kitchen cabinets may be just the change you are
looking for. Making them darker or lighter with
paint is quite simple and inexpensive as well. The
result can be a kitchen
remodel that took only a day to complete! Perfect
for someone looking to just do a little cosmetic
