Cabinet Options For Denver Kitchen Remodeling Projects


December 13, 2017

Your kitchen cabinets can completely transform the look of your whole kitchen, which is why it’s important to choose them wisely. There are a number of different ways to update or remodel your cabinets during a Denver kitchen remodeling project. Here’s a look at some of your options:

Replace the Cabinets

Many homeowners decide to rip out their existing cabinets and start from scratch. This is ideal for homeowners who don’t like the layout of their current kitchen. Tearing down the old cabinets and building new cabinets will allow you to make adjustments to the layout so you can create a more open and spacious kitchen.

This is also a good option for homeowners who have cabinets that are not in good condition. Instead of wasting money on costly repairs, it may be better to replace them if you’re thinking of remodeling your kitchen anyways.

Change the Doors

Replacing the cabinets can be expensive, so many people decide to simply replace the cabinet doors instead. This is the perfect option for people who love the placement of the cabinets within the kitchen, but hate the design of the doors and drawer fronts. To make this work, it’s important to find doors and drawer fronts that are the exact same color as the cabinet boxes so they blend in well once they are replaced.

Don’t be afraid to choose both solid wood doors and wood-framed doors with glass. Use the wood-framed doors with glass to show off your fine china or elegant stemware. Mixing both types of doors will make your kitchen look more customized and unique.

Paint the Cabinets

Sometimes, the only part of the cabinets that needs to be updated is the color. In this case, the best option is to paint the cabinets instead of completely replacing them. Not only is it easier, but it’s also far less expensive. Keep in mind that painting wood cabinets will hide the grain of the wood. If you would like the wood grain on your cabinets to remain visible, use a stain instead of paint.

Be creative when painting your cabinets. There’s no reason why all of the cabinets in your kitchen have to be the same color. If you want your kitchen to stand out, consider using two colors on the cabinets. The first color can be used on the cabinets on the kitchen island, and the second color can be used on the remaining cabinets. This will make the island the focal point of the kitchen—just be sure to pick two colors that complement each other. See 12 easy ways to upgrade basic kitchen cabinets.
