Once your new kitchen cabinets are done, you might be unhappy with them. Why could this be? Perhaps you just moved into a different townhouse you rented, but you weren’t allowed to preview the just-finished renovations that went into making it tenant-ready. How can you make your kitchen cabinets more interesting? Let’s count the ways.
Perhaps your standard kitchen cabinets need a fresh coat of paint. Although functional, they might not be much to look at; so an easy solution to this dilemma is to give your cabinets a pop of color. Don’t underestimate the amount of planning that goes into repainting your cabinets. After all, you don’t want to do it the wrong way and finish with unsatisfactory results. You don’t even have to paint every single one of your cabinets at once, either. Maybe the right place to start is to give your kitchen island a new look and match the sets of cabinets accordingly.
Add New Pulls
The hardware we use on our kitchen cabinets makes a difference as well. Experiment with cup pulls or other types of knobs, drawer-pulls, and handles. You never know what you might find appealing, and besides, it’s a way to add some flair to your kitchen, so it doesn’t have to match your neighbor’s kitchen cabinets.
Remove the Doors
An unexpected option could be to remove the kitchen cabinet doors entirely. Instead, you can think about switching to a more open style. But instead of leaving the cabinets completely open in the spaces where the doors were, you can also try glass panels that allow you to see inside while still offering some protection for what’s stored there.
Sometimes, even the smallest touches can make the biggest differences. One final way to make your kitchen cabinets more interesting to add some accent lighting. You can achieve this effect through backlighting or under-lighting. You can also set different amounts of light depending on what you need to do, or if you would just like to create a romantic atmosphere, dimmable lights are another wonderful option to think about including in your redone kitchen. If there no power outlets are near where you would like to have the light situated, then you might just have to use battery-powered LED lights instead.
