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.

You are not limited to items necessary for kitchen use only. In fact, the cupboards are functional in character but can be a pleasing sight for sore eyes.

Painting Kitchen Cupboards With Formica Doors One of the fastest ways to brighten up the most used room in the home is by painting the kitchen area. For years people who buy and flip homes have remodeled cupboards on the fly by applying a new coat of paint to them. When done correctly, this can be a great way upgrade the look of things. You may want to consider replacing your existing flat doors with raised panel ones. I would recommend that you find a cabinet manufacturer in your area to order them from. It would be a good idea to consider having them install the new ones because there are a few tricky things involved in the process. Tools & Materials Needed -Putty Knife -Drop Cloths -Airless Industrial Paint Sprayer (obtained from a rent-all business) -Paint Designed to Adhere to Formica Surfaces (primer & topcoat) -220 Grit Sand Paper -Wood Filler -Masking Tape -Paint Brushes and Roller -Phillips Screwdriver -Plenty of Rags -Paint Respirator Mask Be sure to set aside plenty of time to complete the project without being rushed. The more time you spend in the preparation process-the better your Formica kitchen cabinets will look when you have finished painting the cupboards. Steps for Repainting Formica Kitchen Cabinets and Doors 1. Put the drop cloths in place. Remove all of the hardware (handles or Knobs) from the cupboard doors. 2. Take the doors off of the cabinets. If you have European hinges, you may NOT even need the Phillips screwdriver for this step. Check to see if there is a release tab on the backside of the hinge. 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. Fill all holes that you intend to eliminate and chipped areas with the wood filler. Allow the filler to completely dry before sanding. 6. Lightly sand all of the surfaces of the cupboard door and cabinets with the 220 sandpaper that will be painted. Wipe all of the dust off of the cabinets and doors. 7. Set up an area where you can spray the primer on the backside of the cupboard doors, preferable outside. Give them one mild coat of primer. 8. While the back of the doors are drying, apply primer to the Formica cabinets using the roller and brush. When you are finished, the doors should be ready for a second coat of primer. 9. 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. It is advisable to not clean the kitchen cupboards for at least four days to allow plenty of time for the paint to completely cure. Our company has used a product called Cabinet Rescue for painting plastic laminate cabinets on many occasions. As previously mentioned, just check with your local hardware store professionals to find a product that is designed for refinishing Formica cupboard surfaces.

Your costs will vary greatly depending on whether you choose, custom, semi-custom or stock cupboards. The usual standard is that when designing a new kitchen, 50% of the new budget will go towards the cost of new cupboards. One effective way to determine how much you should spend on the new cupboards is to consider how much longer you will remain in the home. If you will be moving within the next two years, then you should spend less that if you plan to be in the house for several more years. If staying for many more years, you should not economize but instead go all out to design the highest quality kitchen you could afford.

Depending on the purpose of the cupboards will determine what size and shape you will in need of. If you are simply using the cupboards for storage then you will in all likelihood look to use a cupboard that is rather simple and fits in perfectly with the outline of the room. However if the purpose of the cupboard is to display items of value as well as personal treasures then you will want top go with something that is a little more elegant and sophisticated as your choice for the design. It is quite possible to go with something that will have glass doors or are see-through in some way.

People could make a decision on a house because of one option or choice, but more often than not, it is determined by several factors. Most choices come down to a house being well designed and fitting a families needs. From this an individual or family will expect the house or "investment" to grow in value over time. Some elements of the house are a bonus. Yes a well designed house makes the choice easier, but then with this choice will come other features that are nice additions. Smaller features of a house are not the deciding factor of home buying, but often help with the decision. One of these smaller features that could go along way is the kitchen cupboards or in other words the kitchen cabinets. Cabinets are not the first thing you think about when entering a house, but once you get to the kitchen, this feature becomes a noticeable and important attribute. A kitchen cupboard is an old term that has slowly transformed over the last half century. Many homes built before the nineteen fifties had the traditional kitchen cupboards. These cabinets were large solid wood fixtures that were often custom built for each individual house. The kitchen cupboard has transformed over the years and has become smaller in size. Of course this transformation has already started to go in a cycle and the traditional kitchen cupboard, once out of date, is showing up again. The housing boom in the nineteen fifties, largely brought on by the prosperity after the war caused a large demand for new housing. Tract housing developments called for new ideas for the kitchen. Traditional kitchen cupboards were no longer practical; instead, smaller, sleeker cabinets were needed to fit into these new houses. Houses were smaller and a large kitchen now became obsolete, so the kitchen cupboard was now substituted with the modern kitchen cabinet. For the next forty to fifty years these cabinets were the dominate feature in the kitchen. Of course there are always exceptions, but for the most part, the kitchen cupboard was downsized in height and width, made less appealing, and mostly was there for usage not design. Fortunately the cycle of design has changed and kitchen cabinets have come full circle. There are more choices today and actually a style of the kitchen cupboard is back in fashion. Large pantry cabinets have come back into a house and from this the renaissance of the kitchen has begun. Another sign of a "throw back" kitchen is the return of the taller kitchen cabinet. Most cabinets are around thirty inches high; however a forty two inch kitchen cabinet or kitchen cupboard had now become an option. Of course if youre going to buy these larger (forty two inch) kitchen cupboards, you will need a higher ceiling, but if you have that higher ceiling, these kitchen cabinets fill the space nicely. The kitchen cupboard has come a long way. Once a piece of furniture, it was then reduced to a no-frills, practical use, but now it has made its way into the kitchen as a furnishing with style.
