Kitchen Remodeling Ideas

Kitchen remodeling planThere are many aspects to consider in the kitchen remodeling project you plan to do. Kitchen cabinets, flooring, countertops… 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 cabinets. Sanding them down and painting them 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 again.
  • 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 more so.

Kitchen RemodelingRemodeling 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 changing!
