How to restore old wooden kitchen cabinets

Do your old kitchen cabinets need a little freshening up? Depending how complex the restoration you want is, you can either restore them yourself or have them restored by a specialist.

Whether you want to apply a new colour or make more extensive changes, there is always a way to restore the shine to your cabinets. Here are some tips to inspire you during your renovations.

Restore your kitchen cabinets by adding colour

If your cabinets are still in good condition but their colour is a little dull, you can repaint them. Choose a colour that complements the rest of your kitchen and allows your cabinets to revitalize the entire room.

At the moment, pale shades of grey, blue and green are very trendy; they bring a touch of lightness and freshness to the kitchen. If you want to stand out more, you can dare to go for a two-tone kitchen. For example, you can paint the top cabinets white and the bottom ones another colour: this will give your room a great deal of vitality.

Replace your wooden kitchen cabinet doors to restore them

Replacing your cabinet doors is a good way to restore them to their former glory without resorting to major home renovations. You can replace them with new doors, or remove them completely to showcase your dishes.

Installing glass cabinet doors is another good way to modernize your kitchen while adding a touch of luminosity. You can choose textured or frosted glass to hide imperfections in the contents of your cabinets.

Restore the face of your wooden kitchen cabinets

If the front of your cabinets is in poor condition, you may have to invest a little more time and money in restoring them. You can resurface your facades to retrofit your old-fashioned doors without changing the original housings.

Rejuvenate your kitchen with plywood cabinets or crown mouldings. This is a small procedure that can bring a lot of style to the room. A wide range of materials is available to modernize your facades; once you have chosen your material, you can surface it yourself or hire a wood renovation expert to do the work.
