Repairing Your Kitchen Cabinets

The wintertime in Florida is a great time for renovating your home, especially your kitchen. As a room that is usually accessed on a daily basis, kitchens can see a lot of traffic throughout the years. When it comes to kitchen wear and tear, cabinets are worn down the easiest because of how much we use them to store our food, plates and appliances. Without cabinets, a kitchen would not be able to function. For this reason, cabinets should be renovated every few years in order to keep them functioning correctly. There are five main ways to improve the look of your kitchen cabinets so that they seem completely new again.

1. General repair- Broken handles, hanging hinges, splintering wood, scuffs and other aspects may seem minor, but they can cause serious damage to you and your home if they are not taken care of immediately. These problems can cause your belongings to fall and break, scuffs on your walls, bodily harm and they can even cause cabinets to completely fall off. General repair work is required to keep your kitchen cabinets up to date

2. Repainting-A new paint job can go a long way. If your cabinets are scuffed, hold scratches, look dull or if you are looking for a change of color, repainting your cabinets is an easy and affordable alternative for improving your cabinets. This activity can quickly take place over a weekend or you can take as long as you want. Either way, repainting your cabinets can produce a subtle change in your kitchen or you can make a drastic change that everyone will notice.

3. Refacing – A step up from repainting, refacing your cabinets involves removing cabinet door fronts and replacing them with new cabinet door fronts. This activity is for the DIY types that wish to keep their cabinets but change the exteriors. Veneer is heavily used here to cover old cabinet fronts as well as exposed frames so that your cabinets look completely new.

4. Adding Accessories- Another way to spruce up you kitchen cabinets is to add different accessories in order to help you with your daily routine. Install under cabinet lighting or pull-out shelves. Build a butcher block island, or, if you are feeling daring, build a plate rack. Whatever additions you add to your kitchen to improve your cabinets will surely be noticed when you have friends and family over.

5. Installation- If you are not the DIY type, new kitchen cabinet installation may be the way to go. Maybe your cabinets are too old to be repainted or refaced. Maybe your cabinets are so old that companion products are no longer sold in stores. No matter the reason, new kitchen cabinet installation is available for anyone looking to improve the aesthetic qualities of their kitchen.

Customization takes the standard cabinet box and expands to encompass almost any furniture application the designer can conceive. Whether the cabinetry is based on built-in storage applications or free-standing furniture pieces, the design applications with custom cabinetry are virtually limitless.

Optimal Storage Opportunities – Experienced kitchen and bath designers optimize storage cabinetry based on customers requirements, objects to be store, available space, and size and shape of area to be utilized. Optimizing storage space with the use of custom cabinetry can benefit any room in your home including kitchens, baths, closets, personal areas, libraries, entertainment centers, bars, or any area within a living or working environment that requires organized storage space.

Expanded Functionality – The kitchen design should focus on the working and storage areas of the kitchen, with special emphasis placed on three primary work spaces in the kitchen include the stove, the refrigerator, and the sink.

How to Pick Kitchen Cabinets

We’re going to cover some basic tips, options, ideas, and suggestions here.

What kind of door style? Should you get an inset, flat, or shaker? The style of your cabinet door is very important, and it could be the most expensive thing in your kitchen. You don’t have to go with the basic swinging door in your kitchen. Corner drawers, pocket drawers, and pocket drawers can make you cabinets easier to work with, and make your life simpler.

Cabinets don’t have to be made out of wood. You can choose glass cabinets and open up your whole kitchen to space, light, transparency, and openness.
