3) Choose painting over replacing

You might want to change the style and appearance of your kitchen cabinet afer some point. While most people would think of replacing the cabinet for the same we would recommend painting it new. The reason is that painting your old cabinet is much more budget friendly than installing a new one. And also if your kitchen cabinet doesn’t have any hardware issues then giving it a customized painting can make it look new and renovated. Apart from that tearing out your old cabinet and replacing it with an new one can disrupt your household. Choose colors that upgrade your mood and mix up colors on lowers and upper cabinets to make it the best.

4)  Remove the cabinet doors

Ditching the doors and opting for airy looks is the trend of the year when it comes to kitchen cabinets. There are several reasons why an open cabinet gives a much better experience than its counterpart.  One of them is open cabinets make it easier to see and access things from there rather than closed ones. Also modifying a kitchen with open shelves heightens the space. This will make you feel like the room is a lot more larger and spacious. Yet another interesting this is these open spaces can be used to display your favourite collections in the kitchen including tea pots, soft colored ceramic dishes or cookbooks.

5) Add Crown Moulding

Crown moulding transforms your kitchen cabinet into a seamless design. You can simply do this by mounting molding on a hardwood frame that sits above cabinets. Adding crown moulding gives an entirely new look not only to your cabinet but also to your kitchen. It will visually add height to the room and credit the cabinets with a better finish. You can give a wider look to the cabinet or kitchen by combining more than one type of moulding. It would be better to use polyurethane crown moulding than wood crown moulding as the later will be affected by changes in climate or humidity. Overall it gives an aesthetic feel to your kitchen.

6) Wallpaper The Interior
