Giving a new look to any old thing is exciting. With the fall approaching or the spring arriving, we want to provide a new look to our homes. Be it the drawing-room, the garden, the kitchen, or even the bedrooms for that matter. Since changing houses is not a feasible and sensible option, we refresh the ambiance within the four walls by reorganizing and refacing them. The new paints, the paintings, new curtains, DIYs, and the creative hacks we incorporate to get the new look are always exciting. Some say that reorganizing the kitchen is a costly venture, but we will share with you some easy ways to organize your kitchen cabinets by just refacing them, hence making them look new.
- REPAINT THE CABINETS
Many times, just changing the color can do wonders. For example, if you have white-colored walls and a blue cabinet set, you could paint the wall off- white and the cabinets peach for a complete makeover. Some paints and a paint day is all that it is going to take.
- ADD GLASS TO ALTERNATIVE CABINETS
Research speaks that refacing the kitchen costs 80% less than reorganizing them. If you don’t want to go for a repaint, you can go for inserting glass doors to your cabinets. It will take a weekend with no pauses on your kitchen activities, and you will have a new kitchen before you.
- USE REMOVABLE WALLPAPER
Whether you want to remove cabinet doors and have open shelves or wish for differently colored cabinets, removable wallpaper always incorporates in making the cabinets look interesting. If the cabinets are of glassdoors then you will have unique colored cabinet walls every time you change the wallpapers. So choose wallpapers of varying and artistic prints to give your cabinets a changed look at a very minimal cost.
- TRY CONTRASTS
While we are talking about glass door cabinets and repainting them, one could also try a contrast design with the cabinets. Contrasting colors have been a popular choice with clothing, makeup, so why not try it for kitchen cabinets. Suppose you have white kitchen walls- you could paint the top cabinet prussian (or dark) blue, and the lower ones white. You can add glasses on both white and blue ones alternatively.
- KEEP ONE END AS OPEN SHELVES
Keep the shelves near the window open and add some aesthetics. Open shelving adds more space and increases the charm of your kitchen simultaneously. Decorative cutlery, indoor plants on unique pots, string lights will make the aesthetics of the kitchen more beautiful. The simplicity and the elegance will add to the show of your kitchen.
- LIGHT UP THE CABINET BOTTOMS
Not the lower ones! Adding lights at the bottom of your top cabinets will not only add practical comfort while working but also make the kitchen warmer and make it feel whole.
- HANG A MIRROR
Hanging a mirror against the window will increase the light reflection, and light reflections make space look bigger. So if you have a small kitchen, you can add the illusion.
- UNDER CABINET SHELVING
Using dead spaces is one of the most crucial hacks of organizing kitchens. Under the cabinet shelves are a great place to stash coffee mugs, bowls, and glasses. Let’s suppose you have a cabinet reserved for your glasses, but you will not be able to add wine glasses if the rack is stacked with the water glasses, under cabinet shelves is immensely useful to stack wine glasses.
- REPLACE THE BORING HARDWARES WITH ARTISTIC ONES
Swapping the old taps, cabinet handles, window and door knobs are one of the cheapest and quickest methods of changing the look of your kitchen. Look for new, trending options for your kitchen hardware at the local big stores, or online. You could also get them customized, but make sure to get the exact size as your old cabinet handles, so that you don’t have to drill new holes. If nothing new suits your taste, you can always use your painter side to paint the old hardware in a new color.
These are some amazing pocket-friendly, easy to do, and affordable measures you can take up to give a refreshing look to your kitchen and enjoy your time spent there.
