Re-facing your cabinets may be the best solution if you want to update them, but you want to save time and money.

Remove all of the cabinet doors and drawer fronts. Prepare the surface of the cabinets. Sand down, remove the grease of the faces and sides of the cabinets, wipe to with cloth to remove dirt, and fill the holes with wood filler. Cover the stiles with wood veneer. Measure the cabinet surface, then, cut out pieces of veneer to cover the stiles (use a straightedge and a utility knife).  Cut the veneer into strips that are half an inch larger than each rail and stile.  . Apply a coat of contact cement to the back of each piece of veneer and to the cabinet surface. Let them dry for about 20 minutes before you put them in place. Slowly bring each piece of veneer into the stile and press it down firmly with wood block. This will strengthen the bond and remove air bubbles. Make sure you get the right position. Use a utility knife to trim excess veneer along the cabinet edge. Trim the outer edges, bottom and the top. Smooth the edges of the veneer using a mill file; moving in one direction from veneer toward the cut. Stain and coat the veneer with a sealant to make a complete facelift. Install new doors using a drill. Align the door in the cabinet and screw temporarily, adjust until it is positioned correctly then screw tightly.

Giving your kitchen a makeover doesn’t have to be a huge project. In fact, there are a number of low-budget ways to give your kitchen a brand new look without investing too much dough.

 

Here are just a couple of minor projects you can undertake that will breathe new life into your kitchen’s tired aesthetic:

Install New Light Fixtures

If your current kitchen is lit by one central fixture, you might have an off-balance ambiance. Consider adding a few more fixtures to break up glare and create a perfect blend of decorative and functional lighting. Bar lights, under-cabinet lights or other ambient lighting will help give a new feel to your kitchen.

 

Change the Colors

A fresh coat of paint or a bright accent wall can really make your kitchen pop! Alternatively, consider creating a mosaic tile backsplash or using vintage or colorful decorative accents for visual interest.

 

Upgrade the Countertops

Changing out countertops is a great way to give your kitchen an all-over new look without too much investment. You can choose stone materials, like marble, slate or granite or, if you’re really on a budget, just change out colors on your laminate counters and add a new color or pattern to the room

 

Revamp the Cabinets

In most kitchens, cabinets cover a large amount of real estate. Because of this, updating or changing them out can have a huge effect on the overall look of the room. If you can’t afford to completely replace your existing cabinets, try revamping your old ones. A popular trend lately is glass-front cabinets. Simply remove your cabinet doors, cut out the front panel (leaving a two- to three-inch border around it), and insert clear glass panes. This gives your kitchen an open and airy look.

 

If replacing cabinets is outside your budget, you can always repaint cabinets or stain a light wood darker for a whole new look and feel. Even updating the cabinet handles alone can make a big difference!

Add an Island

If you have the space, adding or upgrading an island not only transforms your room; it may also give you more space to cook, chop and serve up food. You can choose to get an island installed professionally – and have it match your countertops – or you could opt for a roll-away island, which you can typically find at any major furniture store or outlet. Most feature underside cabinets and drawers, giving you additional storage space.

 

Create a Bar

If part of your kitchen is blocked off by a wall, consider knocking half of it out and turning the lower half into a bar. This can open up space between rooms and create a better space for entertaining. You can even get bar stools to match your décor to really pull the room together.
