Cabinets not only define a kitchen’s look, they also serve as a tone setter for the rest of the home as well. But, when selling or remodeling, it’s a common mistake to forget just how important cabinet design really is to the look, feel, and worth of your overall property. For this reason, we will take a quick look at some simple cabinet refresh ideas sure to add style, interest, and value to your home. Let’s get started!
Elegant Crown Molding
One upgrade guaranteed to increase the elegance (and value) of any cabinet set is the addition of crown molding. Molding not only provides a stylish update, it also ensures your kitchen has a “fully custom look.” Friends, family, and prospective buyers alike will be quick to notice the additional investment you have made. Pro tip: white or off-white crown molding paired with vibrantly colored cabinets creates an uplifting, fun, and compelling kitchen space.
A Creative Look Inside
Another way to refresh your cabinets is by removing their doors and using interesting wallpaper to line the back of each cabinet section. By painting your cabinets a muted color like off-white or light grey, you leave room to get creative with wallpaper design. This combination will catch the eye, adding the interest needed to make your cabinets stand out. Pro tip: as an alternative to muted paint colors, use lightly stained hardwood paired with pastel colored lining options for a bright, unique look.
Style Through Color
How can style, value, and interest be added with one simple update? You guessed it, paint color combinations! By using a different color for each of the top and bottom cabinet sections, a modern, clean, but intriguing design emerges. This exciting combination of colors doesn’t just make your cabinets more interesting, they also add a layer of coziness and inviting warmth to your kitchen. Pro tip: if you have an island, painting it light brown or light grey in combination with a more vibrant cabinet color, creates a similarly captivating effect.
