Refinishing Your Kitchen Cabinets With Ease

Spruce up your kitchen with a hardware update.One of the biggest expenses when remodeling your kitchen is the replacement or installation of kitchen cabinets. In many instances though, you may not have to replace the entire cabinet system. This article will show you a few things you can do to refinish your kitchen cabinets and make them look new again while also saving you a good deal of money.

New Hardware

In many cases the cabinets in place are more than sufficient and still have a lot of years left in them. If you find this applies to your cabinets, one way to make them appear new and updated is by installing new hardware. There are literally thousands of options out there, so whatever look you are going for should have an option to fit it.

New or Re-finished Doors

If the exterior of your cabinets need a little TLC, but the rest of them are in good shape, you have a couple options. Either you can remove the doors, sand them down, re-finish them and re-hang them, or you could simply re-move the current doors and hang up new ones.


If the wood look is not what you are after, you can always paint the doors to either match or accent your kitchen. Remember when painting over wooden doors to prime first. This will save you from having to do an third coat of paint, and the paint you do you will adhere to the primed surface better.

There are still more options available for re-finishing your cabinet doors, but these three are the main ones people use today when refinishing their kitchen cabinets on a budget.
