If you’re going to be doing the painting yourself, you’ll want to take time to research the right paints and method for painting. Now sure how to get started with such a big DIY project? Take a look at our article How to Paint Your Kitchen Cabinets Like a Pro, and you’ll be ready in no time.
Lack of Counter Space, You’ve reclaimed some counter space, but do you still feel like it’s not enough? That’s a common issue. We have ideas for maximizing (and even adding) more counter space to your small kitchen, including a trick for turning your sink into a cutting board (pictured above).
Colors to suit every design style: Is your design style eclectic or ultra edgy that you don’t want to see your interiors in everyone else’s house? Modern styled cabinetry has color choices from cobalt blue to lemon yellow, and every color in the spectrum you can fathom. For those of you that enjoy a kitchen that will represent your personality, cabinetry that exudes color and definition doesn’t require ornamentation and detail. Minimal décor is required, as your cabinetry sets the stage for the entire space!
Modern amenities: If your cabinetry is going to be state of the art and modern, opt for amenities that compliment it as well. Glass or frosted panels that allow light and vision through cabinet doors is contemporary and adds a break of all the paneled cabinet fronts. Choose minimalist hardware to open up cabinet doors and drawers. For modern cabinetry, a spring action closer is required instead on hardware. This gives a seamless visual front that makes your space look like a continuous wall of beautiful material. Choose sinks and appliances that match the sleekness of your cabinets to bring the entire space together seamlessly.
Include Artwork: Don’t miss an opportunity for showcasing artwork you love by leaning some frames on the shelves behind your dishes. This is a good way to vertically expand the shelves too, especially when the dishes (like cups and mugs) are low.
We love our kitchens. We spend so much time in them, creating meals and memories with people that we love. So it only makes sense that, like the food we cook in them, our kitchens should be a reflection of creativity and happiness.
