A Micro Remodel for the Kitchen Cabinets

Just a few small changes to the kitchen cabinets and drawers can have a big impact on the look of the room.

Warm wood cabinets, black cabinet pulls.

If the kitchen is looking a little down, it’s easy to bring together a quick and colorful perk-up in just a weekend. The best part? You don’t have to break the bank to do it.

One of the simplest ways to remodel your kitchen is to treat your cabinetry to a bright and modern look. Check out the tips below for some great ideas to freshen up the kitchen and stay on budget.

Tip #1

White cabinets with black pulls, pink cabinets with antique brass pulls.

Trade out your old cabinet and drawer knobs and pulls with new hardware for a revived look on any budget.

Tip #2

Open drawer with slides.

If your cabinets and drawers stick, creak, or bang shut, it’s time to consider replacing the hinges or updating the drawer slides. Add cabinet catches to keep the doors from edging open on their own.

Tip #3

White textured clam shell tiles. Mosaic black and white floral print tile.

Make simple cabinets fun with a clean and colorful background. Opt for tile backsplash above the countertop, or even line the interior cabinet shelves with wallpaper.

  • For white or black cabinets, add pop and contrast with a vibrant, colorful backsplash.
  • For smooth cabinets without a drastic wood grain, choose a textured backsplash to add depth.

Tip #4

Warm wood cabinets with open shelving. Vintage light green cabinets.

Refinish the cabinet exteriors for an updated look without breaking the bank. 

  • Refresh your cabinets with a new coat of paint or stain. 
  • Add glass panes to the cabinet doors for a classic and clean look. 
  • Consider removing the cabinet doors entirely for open shelving, or trade them for rolling “barn door” cabinet doors

Tip #5

Double bin trash can with full extension slides. Base organizer, tupperware

Maximize your kitchen’s storage capacity with any of these stylish organizational upgrades.

Tip #6

Light shinning down from under cabinet, illuminating kitchen countertop.

Brighten your space and illuminate the look of the kitchen by adding new cabinet lighting. Under cabinet lighting is an easy option to enhance your cooking prep experience with efficient task lighting.
