You will be amazed at how quickly your shinning new cabinets can loose their fresh look. This is because of all the fumes, steam and moisture that are the by products of any kitchen. Here are some simple but effective tips to give you cabinets a new look.
Replacing cabinet handles: Because of their frequent use, handles are the first to lose their lustre. Changing them is one of the best and the cheapest ways to give a new look to your kitchen. Though replacing the kitchen cabinet handles sounds easy, with all the different types of handles available today, you will have a really hard time picking up a new handle that will match your cabinets and the general kitchen décor. Since you want to give a new look to your cabinets, avoid choosing handles of the same colour or shape as the old ones. You should also pay attention to the material of the handles, as you can choose from metal, wicker or plastic. With little patience you can find the perfect handle to fit in your cabinet. Though handles are a minor part of a cabinet they attract our attention to it.
Replacing cabinet hinges: Hinges also come under spotlight and replacing them can give a new look to your cabinets. Usually hinges and handles are available as matching pairs in most hardware stores. It also makes choosing them easier and moreover they give a uniform look to the cabinets. Even if they don’t come together as matching pairs, it is always better to find handles and hinges that matches or blends with the cabinets. If you opt to have coloured handles then you should also think about choosing hinges with matching colours. This is a tricky situation as mostly coloured hinges are made of plastics and they would definitely not be a good choice for refacing cabinets that are used frequently. One solution to this problem is to go for a hinge that perfectly matches your cabinet colouring to make it blend well with it and go unnoticed. This is an easier way to make your choice less tedious, as most of the cabinets are made of wood and all you have to do is find a ubiquitous brown hinge to blend with it.
Kitchen cabinet organizer: Though cabinets are supposed to keep things organised in the kitchen, they are a real terror when you want to find something, especially small items. This is where a kitchen cabinet organizer can help you out. With the right organizer you can give a completely new and organized look to your otherwise cluttered kitchen cabinets. Usually the size of the kitchen cabinets and that of a cabinet organizer is standardised. This makes picking out an organizer to match your cabinets much easier. There are many types of cabinet organizers available in market today ranging from cheap plastic organizers to more expensive models of different materials and quality. You can also go for custom made cabinet organizers to fit your particular requirements. Though this can be quite expensive, if you are very particular about how you want your cabinets to look, then it is better to hire a professional to build a cabinet organizer that is perfect for your needs.
These are some of the simplest and workable solutions to give your kitchen cabinets a complete makeover. With little patience and effort you can have a bright new look to your kitchen in no time at all!
