Individuals like to take their time choosing cabinets that are going to go with the rest of the decor.
This guide will show you some easy, low-budget ways to do a replacement.
The quickest way to make your old cabinets seem new is to just give them a fresh coat of paint.
Painting takes less time, and in most cases will cost you the least.
The hardest part of the job will be choosing a great color.
If you have already done that, and your cabinets still feel drab, simply changing out the hardware is a great solution too.
Hardware can included hinges, knobs, or handles.
These items can be purchased at your local home improvement store.
When you go to the store, take a good look around.
You don't want to make a rash choice.
Make sure you get exactly what you want.
There will be a lot of hardware to choose from.
Get something that will fit in the theme of the kitchen.
This option may cost a little bit more than painting, but if done right, the cabinet will look great.
One other low cost method you might try is to reface them.
Refacing basically means stripping all of the detail and paint to start over.
This is done in at least two steps.
Done properly, this project can be done in as little as four hours, depending on the cabinet size.
The first step to refacing is to strip the paint off.
You do this by using a paint thinner, or a stripper.
These can be purchased in any store that sells paint.
Then it is time for sanding.
Sanding may take a little longer, unless you use a sander machine.
The reason for the sanding is to make sure that the material you will later be working with is fresh of dirt and chemicals.
It also smooths the wood out.
With the cabinet sanded, you can do one of two things.
You can either re-stain it if you want the original wood finish, or you will just paint them.
Most people want a traditional look so they'll stain it.
Additionally, some people like to varnish, and add a glossy finish.
Whatever you choose, your kitchen cabinet is sure to look very nice.
Replace it in your kitchen.
No matter which method you chose to use, it is certain your kitchen is going to look brand-new to everyone.
