5 Interesting Ways To Customize Your Cabinets


Small changes to the cabinets in your home can make a big difference. You can

  • completely change the aesthetics of a space;
  • make your home more appealing;
  • add resale value;
  • or change the functionality of your cabinets.

Here are a few ways you can customize your cabinets to achieve one or all of those things.

1.  Paint Your Cabinets

One of the easiest ways to give your cabinets a face lift is to paint them. Changing the color can add some freshness to your kitchen cabinets or bathroom cabinets. This can work out especially well if you are doing kitchen remodeling, but don't want to replace all of your cabinets.

2. Wallpaper the Cabinet Interiors

You can wallpaper the interiors of your cabinets to give a surprise spot of color or design whenever someone opens the cabinet. If you have glass door cabinets, then the designs behind them can make for even more of an impact. Actually, if you don't have glass doors or glass inserts, then that's another interesting way you can customize your cabinets.

3. Remove the Cabinet Doors

Yes, many people have successfully removed their cabinet doors to present just the shelving as a part of their overall kitchen design. This will give you easier access to the contents of your cabinet. It will also free up space in a smaller kitchen, especially if your opened cabinet doors seem to loom over everything.

You can paint cabinets and cover up any marks from the hinges. This is an idea you can easily test. Unscrew your cabinet doors and see how it makes you feel. If you don't like it, you can put them right back on.

4. Add Lighting to Your Cabinets

Use LED lighting below and above your cabinets to completely change the mood in the kitchen. This way, you don't have to make any changes to the cabinets themselves.

Task lighting can illuminate the areas below the cabinet. These lights can tastefully split the kitchen into sections by illuminating different areas individually. Putting the light source below the cabinets will create a pool of light.

Uplighting can illuminate areas above the cabinets. Uplighting can really make it seem like your cabinets are sharing their ambiance with the rest of the space. You can find LED light-strips specifically for this purpose.

5. Think Outside the Box

Do a little research online; look for photos of what others have done. See if you can come up with other ideas to customize your cabinets. There's any number of methods available.

If you're unsure of what exactly it is your kitchen cabinets need, speak to a kitchen remodeler or a cabinet refacing and remodeling contractor. Places like Olson Cabinets & Woodworking Inc can help you figure out what you can do to improve the look of your cabinets or kitchen overall.
