After: Opening up the space and adding in Lily Ann's York Linen has modernized the kitchen and given it a fresh feel. The natural lighting and the addition of lighting underneath the cabinetry really brightened the room, making it less uninviting. The increased storage and addition of glass panels to showcase decor bring a new sense of functionality

1. How do you modernize old kitchen cabinets?

First, consider repainting or refinishing the cabinets with a fresh coat of paint or stain in a contemporary color. Replacing outdated hardware, such as knobs and handles, with sleek and modern options can also make a significant difference. You might also explore replacing cabinet doors altogether for a more modern style.

2. What is the cheapest way to resurface cabinets?

The most budget-friendly way to resurface cabinets is by using paint or a new stain. Sanding down the existing finish, applying a primer, and then adding a coat of paint or stain can create a fresh appearance. Another cost-effective option is to apply adhesive-backed veneer or laminate sheets to the cabinet surfaces. Keep in mind that while these methods are cheaper, they may not provide the same durability or longevity as more comprehensive renovation options.

3. Is it cheaper to paint or replace kitchen cabinets?

Painting kitchen cabinets is generally more cost-effective than completely replacing them. The cost of painting includes sanding, priming, and painting materials, along with labor if you hire professionals. On the other hand, replacing cabinets involves the expense of new cabinet units, hardware, installation, and potential changes to countertops and other elements that interact with the cabinets.
