Choosing The Right Kitchen Cabinetry Hardware in 6 Steps
Did you ever find yourself wanting or needing to prepare some food dish and you didn’t have enough space for your ingredients, cooking equipment, dishware and silverware? Well, you might need to consider redecorating your kitchen cabinets.
Step 1: First of all, you must have a clear idea about what you can afford to spend on redecorating your kitchen cabinets. Changing everything and rebuilding your kitchen from scratch can be expensive. Some do-it-yourself work will definitely save you money. Hence, you can start by cleaning your kitchen. For the areas covered with grease (ovens or refrigerators, for example), use a solution of water and vinegar (industrial or homemade) to wipe away the stains.
Step 2: The walls should be in harmony with the design you have chosen. For damaged walls, you can use stencils or wallpaper borders. Beside the fact that they give that unique, homey touch to your kitchen, wall decorations will hide those imperfections that would lower the price of your house if you will consider selling it in the future.
Step 3: If the cabinet doors don’t mix with the new cabinet, you should consider changing them. If this is not an option, you can redecorate them in order to blend in (a small bucket of paint should do the trick). In any case, you can always opt for a contemporary touch in your kitchen by removing the doors for open shelving.
Step 4: Invest in new cabinet hardware. You should consider changing the drawer pulls, cabinet handles and any piece of equipment that doesn’t seem to fit. Bring in cupboard baskets, folding shelves, storage hooks, and compact designer cookware.
Step 5: Now, you should think about the design of the kitchen furniture. Style is the key element in every kitchen whether selecting stainless steel or sleek Art Deco designs in chrome are a good choice. Search for bargains in flea markets, thrift shops, yard sales or vintage hardware. No matter the place, there is always a chance to find that piece of furniture that will give your kitchen personality.
Step 6: The next step is to purchase some accessories. If you don’t have time to shop, you can always consider surfing online at the dollar stores for wholesale accessories. These sites offer the consumer a whole array of accessories that include cheap and funky bar sets, tea and coffee items, tools and gadgets, tabletops and many additional bargains.
