If your kitchen needs an upgrade but you're not ready for a full renovation, updating your kitchen cabinets can make a big difference. Consider implementing these simple, inexpensive ideas.
Choose New Colors
Painting your cabinets a fresh color can give your kitchen an instant face-lift. Think about using colors other than white for an up-to-date look. Another trendy option is to paint upper and lower cabinets different colors. To really make a statement, choose a darker color for the bottom cabinets and a lighter color for the upper cabinets.
Upgrade Cabinet Hardware
Updating drawer pulls and knobs is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to refresh dated cabinets. By matching the width of your new hardware with the existing cabinet holes, you'll be able to make an easy switch with just a screwdriver.
Add Open Shelving
A simple way to incorporate the open shelving trend is by removing a few cabinet doors. (You'll need to fill in the holes where the hardware screws were.) Use these open cabinets to display your favorite dishes, glassware and serving pieces.
