Kitchen cabinets experience maximum wear and tear due to the very nature of their usefulness. They are most affected by heat, grease, food residues and stains that result from cooking. Sooner or later, you come to the decision that your kitchen cabinets need to be renovated. Replacing kitchen cabinets can be an expensive option. A less expensive and often more creative option may be to replace or repaint kitchen cabinet doors.
Search the market and you will find that you can use professional experience to get custom made laminate doors for your cabinets. These laminate doors mimic wood and do not require painting. Professional cabinetmakers will make doors in any size and color.
This is not to say that you cannot get real wood doors. Popular woods for cabinet doors include maple, oak, and cherry. If wood is not your style, you can even think in terms of stainless steel or glass. To get the perfect fit, carefully measure your existing doors and provide the measurements to the manufacturer. Also, remember to choose the perfect style for your cabinet doors. Styles range from raised to curved or even flat with intricate moldings.
You can also express yourself by painting your kitchen cabinet doors yourself. Not only will you have the satisfaction of doing your work yourself, but you will also be able to reduce the additional costs of hiring a professional. But keep in mind that all work can take a period of at least three days.
To paint your doors, you will first need to clean them thoroughly and remove all stains to achieve a smooth, even finish. Also, you should fill in all cracks and scratches with wood putty. Then apply a coat of paint in firm strokes. You can also consider spray painting for a more uniform and modern look. Put the finishing touch by choosing stylish knobs for your fresh new cabinet doors.
