Paint Your Old Kitchen Cabinets

If you walk into your kitchen and the atmosphere is gloomy, it’s probably because you need a new, fresh and updated look. Dark cabinetry, backsplash, and table tops are out of style and take a lot of the light out of the room. The good news is that if your cabinets are in good condition, you can have them repainted with a fresh coat of lacquer that is brighter and brings life to the space. Kitchen cabinet painting is an affordable way to bring excitement and beauty to your home without enduring the cost of a full-scale kitchen remodelling.

Add Under-Cabinet Valence Lighting

There’s something missing in most Canadian kitchens and believe it or not, it’s not a very expensive item. It is simply good lighting. There are many ways for you to brighten the space where you probably spend most of your mornings and evenings. Installing undercabinet valence lighting and trim can not only make cooking and prepping a lot easier, but it’s also a great way to highlight your beautiful backsplash and the countertop in your kitchen!

Add Cabinet or Crown Moulding

Crown moulding is mounted on a hardwood frame that sits above the cabinets. This beautiful feature is a great way to create additional stylish height and add luxurious taste and style. Cabinet trim(s) help transform your kitchen storage into a seamless design that adds extra personality.

Adding simple trim, moulding pieces or wainscotting to gables, doors or plain panels can add simple, inexpensive improvements to modernize the look of your kitchen.

Update Hardware and Hinges

Giving your kitchen a makeover is all about the little details. Newly painted cabinetry along with simple changes to your hardware (new door knobs or door handles) creates a simple, yet amazing transformation to the look of your kitchen. Another important, but often overlooked detail that can improve your kitchen cabinet function is the type of hinges you use. A great number of homeowners are replacing their old hinges that slam shut with new, modern “soft close” hinges. A simple, cost-effective improvement that can be accomplished very quickly.
