 Ideas to Update Old Kitchen Cabinets

Cabinets make or break a kitchen because they are the first thing you notice when you enter the room. So if they’re looking a little dated, now’s the time to update them. 

The following article covers some of the most effective tricks to make your kitchen cabinets pop. Or, if you’re looking to remodel completely, there are remodeling companies to solve the issue for you. 

5 Simple Ways to Refresh Your Kitchen Cabinets

Sometimes, small kitchen cabinet fixes don’t require a lot of time or effort. With a few simple tools, you can make quick and easy repairs that will last.

Add Colors to Your Kitchen

Add Colors to Your Kitchen

Although monochromatic kitchens have been a huge trend recently, interior designers long said goodbye to them and welcomed more colors.

Today, adding a splash of color to your kitchen is the ultimate trend. Don’t be afraid to choose bold colors or color combinations. If they’re wooden, you can choose a color matching the wood and paint the walls instead. That way, you’re emphasizing the old cabinets.

Consider Crown Molding

This one is a bit troublesome but worth the struggle. If you want to turn your old kitchen into a sophisticated area, you should consider the crown molding trend. If you’re skilled with a miter saw, you can try this project on your own. But, if you’re not, then it’s best if you reach out to a kitchen remodeling professional to create what you want.

Don’t forget to add colors to them, too. Depending on your taste, you can make it matching or mismatching, as contrast strikes better visually.

Kitchenette Tones

It seems like the countryside kitchen has come back in style (or it never really went out). There’s something romantic about these kitchenettes when you see blue cabinets, and an open cabinet with plates, glasses, and cups nicely arranged, adding warmth and comfort to the space.

A simple fix would be to remove cabinet doors, However, that might not always be the best solution. Having professionals come in to do some work would be highly recommended, so you get kitchens worthy of magazine pictures.

Take Care of Your Cabinets

Besides redecorating your old cabinets, you must also work on longevity. According to professionals, here’s what you must take care of:

Always Refinish

After you finish painting them, don’t skip the finishing touches. To make your paint long-lasting, you can opt for waxing the cupboards or using gels for a more polished look. Your cupboards will always shine like newly bought ones.


If you notice that your cupboard’s surface begins to scuff, or appears scratched, then you should consider cabinet refacing. This process is polishing and refining the surface or applying veneer on the cupboard’s doors. This is not something you should undertake yourself because you’ll need special tools for this option. 

However, mind that you might have to change doors completely if there’s too much damage.
