If you are undergoing a kitchen renovation, finding ways to save money may be on your mind. Kitchen renovations can be the most expensive renovations to do but can yield the most benefits such as increased home value. This is great for resale but even better if you want to enjoy the space you live in more. If you want to save money on your kitchen renovation, something you can do is refinish your existing cabinetry. Refinishing has many benefits on top of being less expensive. It also saves time because it is less work than removing the existing cabinets and installing new ones. Most of the time the cabinets are well built and not in need of replacement – just refinishing. Here are some different ideas for cabinet refinishing, from Can Do More Painting in Calgary.
Choosing your color palette
One of the first steps when cabinet refinishing is to choose your color. A benefit of cabinet refinishing is that you can choose to do anything you want to match your creative vision. Depending on the look you are going for, Can Do More Painting will assist you in navigating all the options for you; there are so many choices. If your cabinets are wooden, you could stain them in a different color to keep that natural woodgrain look or go in an entirely different direction by applying a solid colour finish. Perhaps you’ll paint the upper cabinets a lighter shade than the lower cabinets to add depth. Maybe you want a pop of color in your cabinets, so you choose something bolder and brighter on the island. The sky is the limit!
Take off some cabinet doors
Something else you may be able to do is to remove some of the cabinet doors. You can have an open shelf look or replace the doors with glass doors. If you are looking for your space to feel more airy or calm, you could paint the cabinets a lighter color and take off some doors. This way, you can modify the space further and make it feel more open. Having open shelves is a clever way to make a smaller kitchen look larger as the eye naturally goes to the back of the cabinet or shelf.
Play with textures
Different coatings have different textures and sheens. Whether you choose to paint, lacquer, or stain, each will offer a different look and feel in the space. Each can offer a high quality finish. On natural wood cabinetry, new stain with a durable clear lacquer might be the answer to create a deep rich looking kitchen. A more rustic look can be created with a distressing and antiquing, while a modern look can be achieved with smooth lacquer or paint. No matter what you’re looking for, there is coating out there to make it happen. There are big quality differences in coatings so it is important to choose the right product for your cabinetry – one size does not fit all. The experts at Can Do More Painting will make sure you are well taken care of and guide you in making the best choices for your project.
