Plastic shelves designed for cupboards are also ideal to use in the kitchen. A great way to use them is for small items such as cups that can be stored on and below the shelf to save space in the cupboard and yet be accessible. Put boxed food, such as all your pasta items on one shelf. This includes macaroni noodles, the 42 boxes of spaghetti you now have, macaroni and cheese as well as your tomato, Alfredo and any canned or jar spaghetti sauce. Depending on the size of your cupboard shelves, designate a shelf for breakfast foods, a shelf for canned goods such as vegetables and fruits and a shelf for juice drinks, mixes, tea bags, coffee and hot coco. Put snack foods and lunch foods that the kids can help themselves to on a lower shelf so they can easily reach them. Of course, you will want to have guidelines concerning the availability of these snacks for the children. Invest in a label maker and label the shelves with the items that go on them. Now, if your spouse or kids help put the groceries away, they know where to put them. If you have a lot of cupboard space you could go as far as making a label for the outside of each cupboard. This, of course, would depend on the style of your kitchen and would need to be attractive as well as useful. Keeping your kitchen cupboards organized will not only save you time when you are running late and need to make a quick lunch or dinner but will also help the babysitter find the juice boxes if you step out for the evening.

If so, pull up on the tab and the hinge should release from the mounting plate. 3. Remove the hinges from the doors. 4. Clean all surfaces with a mild solution of soap and water that are going to be painted. Thoroughly dry off all of the areas that you have washed. 5.

Repeat the process of painting the kitchen cupboards and doors with the primer until all areas have had two coats applied. Once the primer is completely dry, you may lightly sand all areas where ever necessary. 10. Paint two finish coats on the cupboards and the doors. 11. Hang the doors on the cabinets and insert the drawers back into their proper locations. 12. Install the old or new handles/knobs on the cabinet doors.

Naturally you will know that new kitchen cupboards will give your kitchen a whole new look! They will give a new life to the heart of your home, and if bought correctly, they can last years to come. Because your kitchen cupboards will live on in your kitchen for many years, or at least until you feel like or can afford to replace them again, you need to pick the right ones. It is easy to get overwhelmed by the choices that you have, so you need to break your decisions down to make them easier. The first thing to consider is your budget. Your budget will determine the whole change, and you will have a good idea of your limitations. If you know how much you can spend, then you can let the salesperson in the shop know what sort of price range you are looking at in advance, to save yourself the heartbreak of being shown beautiful cupboards that you can never afford. The next thing you can consider is the style and feel you are hoping for in your kitchen. This will in turn help you choose colours and materials. For example, if you are wishing for a homely, country style kitchen then you can consider buying wooden kitchen cupboards. If you want a more modern look, then you can consider getting something with steel finishes and modern knobs. For a fresh, clean kitchen that is timeless, you can choose smooth white cupboards with simple finishes. For a trendier kitchen, you can choose quirkier styles of cupboards and even a bold colour such as red! There are some premade kitchen cupboards that you can purchase. This means the style and colours will already have been created, you will simply need to order the size and quantity you want. This limits your freedom of choice with regards to specialising what you want, but it is also more cost effective. You will, however, have the option to get your kitchen cupboards custom made, and this is when the choices become a bit more important. You will have to choose the material, style and colour of your kitchen cupboards before they will be custom made and fitted into your kitchen. This gives you more creative freedom, but is also more costly. If you really want the freedom of expression, and want a unique kitchen you feel you have truly designed yourself, then the cost is worth it. Bear in mind that it is important for you to consider what you really want. Take your time in choosing the right cupboards, and do not choose something simply because it is cheap. Remember that the wrong materials or poorly constructed kitchen cupboards will warp and become tatty over time, and then you will have to do the remodelling all over again! If you are the kind of person who gets bored easily, then you must rather consider neutral colours. For a splash of colour and vibrancy in your kitchen you can dress up the cupboards by adding cute decorations and colourful plates around your kitchen.
