Kitchens are more than just where you prepare your meals. Nowadays, the kitchen is a command center, dining area, and the one room in the home where families spend the most time together. If you’re looking for a way to spruce up the space, and an overhaul isn’t in the budget, try one of these easy Kitchen Remodeling & Cabinet Refinishing Agoura upgrades. You can brighten the room with a coat of cabinet paint, add handy storage features like a pull-out shelf or a free-standing island, or even build a window seat with stock cabinets—all with our help!
Add drama to your kitchen by contrasting light-color cabinetry with a dark-stained cabinet. The mix of cabinets would complement the tile back splash, giving the kitchen a dramatic, cohesive look.
Utilize every space in your kitchen by adding shelves above the refrigerator. Open shelving not only adds storage, but is also perfect for a simple display and gives the refrigerator a more custom and expensive appearance.
Upgrade Your Hardware
Swap out basic hardware for something with a little more style. For a small change with big effect, add stylish hardware to your cabinets. Replacing traditional cabinetry knobs with modern tubular handles is an affordable hardware update that offers a trendy touch for your kitchen.
Turn hard-to-reach areas into more accessible storage spaces with movable cabinetry. Pullout towel racks and a full-extension lazy Susan help make the most of a corner and provide more storage than standard spaces, but can be easily hidden by a retractable door.
Style in Details
Crown molding and picturesque arrangements make simple cabinetry look polished and elegant. Open shelving allows the board paneling to show through, which carries on the kitchen’s style and adds color to the over-all effect.
Dishes on Display
Install a large plate rack to add a twist to traditional open shelving. This simple storage option is perfect for displaying china sets in a stylish and sophisticated way, while still making practical use of space. Arrange extra pieces of the tableware set, such as glasses or saucers, above the plate rack to complete the look.
Add extra space for food and drinks by installing refrigeration drawers near the main refrigerator. Chalkboard paint on the cabinet fronts adds a playful feel to the room and allows you to label the drawers or add your own personal accent to the space.
Pop of Color & Openness
Open and glass-front cabinets create an airy look. Open shelving will give your kitchen a lighter look. For a clever spin on the style, paint the interiors of your cabinetry a bold hue & a rich accent color to spice up the kitchen even more. Or use bold-colored appliances to give accent to the whole kitchen. Removing the doors from some of the upper cabinets reveals the space inside, making the kitchen look larger. Existing cabinets get a dramatic makeover with modern orange paint just like the accents used on the video.
