New kitchen cabinets are expensive, so your current cabinets must be in real horrible shape to justify throwing them out. If you do throw them out, you then have to go through the process of replacing them. You will also need to replace countertops, backsplash, and possibly the flooring, it then turns into a full kitchen remodel. This usually involves carpenters, electricians, plumbers, drywallers, flooring, countertop, backsplash and painting contractors. This gets real expensive very quickly, not to mention the fact that you could be throwing out perfectly good cabinets into the landfill. Before you decide to throw out your kitchen cabinets, here are some ways to reclaim them into the kitchen you’ve always wanted – on a budget.
Add Task Lighting
Adding under cabinet lighting can brighten up your kitchen quickly. This doesn’t have to be a long process of wiring and hassle. There are now battery powered LED lights that you can stick under your cabinets. Battery powered lights won’t be as bright as the hardwired ones, but they are cheap, easy, and get the job done.
Change the Hardware
Getting some clean, modern hardware can really update your cabinets look. Hardware can get expensive, but if you buy them in bulk, you will save a lot of money. If you don’t have a lot of time to get this project done, replace one-hole hardware with one-hole upgrades, as well as two-hole with two-hole. It will save you from having to drill new holes or fill in unwanted ones.
Paint Your Cabinets
Painting your cabinets is the best way to reclaim your kitchen cabinets on a budget. It will give your kitchen a completely brand new look. There are endless colors to choose from so you can make it your own with your style.
Add Crown Molding
Adding crown molding to the top of your cabinets can make a huge difference. Usually, you’ll want to add crown molding at the same time you’re painting cabinets so that the colors match perfectly.
Add Glass Inserts
By adding glass inserts in place of a cabinet door, you can change the look of your kitchen. With glass, the kitchen tends to feel more open. It also gives your cabinets a custom look. Just take your cabinet door to a local glass shop and they usually will be able to cut out the center panel and install a piece of glass for you.
