Updating your kitchen can be pricey project. Often people try to salvage their kitchen cabinets to cut costs. HGTV is offering some fantastic ideas for giving your kitchen cabinets a face-lift for a whole new look in this well-traveled room.
Add a Coat of Paint
If you have old-fashioned kitchen cabinets that match the rustic look of the rest of your house, you want to maintain their integrity. Raised-panel cabinets are a great example. Give them a more modern look by adding a coat of paint in an edgy color. Take older cabinets and make them look eclectic by choosing a unique hue that matches the rest of your kitchen decor.
When you live in a small house or cottage, space is a premium. You have to make the most of limited space for storage. One way to do it is by adding cabinets for concealed storage. Ideas include roll-out shelving, soft-closed drawers and concealed hinging to make your kitchen more efficient.
Get Hamptons Style
The tony Hamptons has a signature look that brings a touch of class into any home. To create a Hamptons feeling in your home, consider adding white marble to your kitchen island and include a motif throughout the room such as interlocking diamonds. For complete sleekness, cover built-in refrigerators with panels.
Other ideas include using innovative materials to create customized kitchen cabinets such as steel cabinets in a modern setting or bamboo for a lakeside mood. Visit the HGTV website to discover more ways to update your kitchen cabinets to make this room more functional and inviting.
