This is often a great way of modernizing the kitchen or making it look new without carrying out any extensive renovation works. Below are some of the simple ideas you can consider in order to refresh the way your kitchen looks.
Customized Kitchen Doors
As long as you are okay with your current kitchen layout as well as the cabinetry inside, you can think of ways to customize the kitchen doors and drawer fronts to refresh the way your kitchen looks. You will be able to find so many customized door sizes, drawer and panel fronts that are ready made to serve this purpose. These customized doors will ensure that your house kitchen gets the kind of facelift it ought to have. There are so many custom made designs and shapes of kitchen doors that can be used to achieve this purpose well. There are online companies and local kitchen makeover companies that can help you with your renovation.
Altering the Door profiles and Color Ranges
There are various companies that manufacture ready-to-install kitchen doors that come in various profiles and color ranges. A home owner would only need to identify the new kitchen door profile they wish to have in their homes from the showrooms of such companies. These companies always go a step further by ensuring that they produce samples of all the colors, profiles and finishes of the replacement kitchen doors on offer.
If you need to have a closer look and feel of the product before buying, the high street showrooms are probably your best bet, however many local kitchen businesses will also come to your home and bring samples, and of course most will also offer a free survey and quote too.
What you ought to do before undertaking this project
Decide if you are happy with the general layout of your kitchen. You can always add cupboards etc if required, but if your sink is in the right place, the electrics and plumbing are situated where you want them to be, then just a facelift is probably all that you need.
You can also look at replacing the worktops, adding some subtle lighting, new appliances, better storage options and maybe a waste disposal. It is surprising how much difference you can make to your kitchen with just a door and drawer replacement. Also, the cost is less than half of a full replacement, and the work is generally done in 2 days.
So before you spend the equivalent of a new family car on buying a new kitchen, take a look at some of the less expensive options, keep your cabinets and try using replacement kitchen doors, and with the money you save buy new upgraded appliances. Just a thought, but it worked well for us, and I recommend it to you too.
