Upgrade Your Kitchen Cabinets without Replacing Them

Cabinets take up a lot of space in the kitchen and can be a major focal point of your interior design. Fortunately, there are many ways to refurbish cabinets without the expense of replacing them. You can redo the hardware, paint or stain the wood, or add glass shelving or a glass front. Furthermore, you use the following refurbished cabinet ideas with a little creativity without spending much money.

Add some Glass to Your Cabinet Doors

Glass doors can add elegance and visual interest to your cabinets, while also making them more functional. Glass can help you see what’s inside and make it easier to grab what you need. Plus, if you have pretty dishes or cookware, this is a great way to show them off!

City Glass Company can add glass to your cabinet doors in a variety of ways. One option is to replace the entire door with a glass panel or replace the existing glass with a new type of glass. If you have a solid wood cabinet door, after a carpenter creates an opening City Glass can silicone a glass panel into the door. Whatever method you use, you’ll want to select a glass that suits your style – both clear, tinted, and patterned options are available!

If you are looking for a more contemporary look, incorporate frosted or patterned glass.  After you’ve added glass to your cabinet doors, you can further decorate them to match the look of your kitchen. You can even personalize the glass with stenciling or decals once you get it back home.

Add Glass Shelves

Adding glass custom shelves to your kitchen cabinets is a great way to update their appearance without having to replace them. Glass shelves are sleek and modern, and they can add a lot of visual interest to your kitchen. At City Glass, we specialize in made to order glass including shelves in your China cabinets or kitchen cabinets. We would be happy to work with you on this project.

Add New Hardware

Adding new hardware to your kitchen cabinets is another way to upgrade them without replacing them. This can include new knobs, pulls, or even eliminating the hardware and siliconing the glass into the frame instead. Updating the hardware on your cabinets can give them a completely new look without replacing the cabinets themselves. Furthermore, it is a relatively inexpensive way to update the look of your kitchen.

Paint Your Cabinets

If you want to make a bigger change, you can always paint your kitchen cabinets. This is a more involved project, but it can completely transform the look of your kitchen. You can either paint the cabinets all one color or get creative and paint them in a two-tone scheme. Whatever you decide, painting your cabinets is a great way to give your kitchen a new look. And if any glass breaks in the process, City Glass has your back!

Add a Backsplash

One of the quickest and easiest ways to give your cabinets a facelift is to add a backsplash. This will not only protect your walls from spills but can also add color and pattern to your kitchen. You can use many materials for your backsplash, including tiles or stone – did you know you could use glass or mirror as well?
