Kitchen Cabinets are The Soul Of Your
by: Mike Yeager
Kitchen cabinets reflect the heart and soul
of the homeowner. The cabinets you have in your kitchen have
the greatest impact on a kitchen's look. They come in many
shapes and sizes as well as in a rainbow of colors. Only your
imagination and your bank account limit the color and design of
your cabinets. You can buy cabinets pre-made at your local home
supply store or have them custom built.
You can also give your kitchen a fresh, new
look with a makeover for your older kitchen cabinets. If you're
happy with your existing cabinet layout, and the cabinets are
still in good condition, then cabinet re-facing is an
alternative to replacing them. Cabinet re-facing can be
accomplished in a number of ways.
Kitchen cabinet doors can be sanded and
re-painted using any color and texture you choose or stripped
using a variety of chemical products available at any home
supply store. It is always important to read the label and
precautions on any chemical stripper prior to using them. Many
of these products can cause serious health problems if the
instructions are not followed.
When choosing new kitchen cabinets it is
important to pay attention to type of wood used and the quality
of the construction. The look of your kitchen cabinets will
also be reflected in the hardware you choose from the hinges to
the knobs. Once you finish all the choices and have them in
place you will enjoy them for years to come.
