7 Creative Kitchen Cabinet Updates in Arlington, VA

A kitchen can be a place where you express your creative side, particularly in the form of updating the look of your kitchen cabinets or maybe even the walls or replacing some of your older appliances that may not even be working as well as you’d want.

Though there’s a notion that there are only a few things that you can do with kitchen cabinets, there are many ways you can change the look or even just update them to make them more functional — and therefore better for you.

Let’s look at seven creative kitchen cabinet updates in Arlington, VA.

1. Removable Decals

The first thing you may want to do to update the look of your kitchen cabinets that don’t involve painting them is to make use of removable decals.

There are numerous benefits to using removable decals, including the fact that they come in a variety of colors and designs and make it quite easy for you to change up the look of your cabinets just about as often as you want.

Of course, it’s ultimately going to be up to you to decide how often you’re going to want to change the decals.

2. Painting The Trim

If you want to update your kitchen cabinets but don’t have a lot of time available to you, you can actually just paint the trim (a different color) and give the cabinets a distinguished new look.

The important thing is that when you are painting the trim, you should look at what color you have for your cabinet already and then choose a color that goes along with it — perhaps even a contrasting color.

3. Removing Some Doors

In terms of giving the kitchen cabinets a new look with the absolute minimal change, you can’t really do better than removing some of the doors on the cabinet itself.

Though it may not seem like it’s such a substantial change, the way that your cabinets will look before you remove the doors and after you remove them is quite remarkable.

Additionally, it will make it a lot easier to see what you have in your cabinets, as you won’t have to open the doors in order to see things.

4. Changing The Hardware

If you really want to make an interesting change to your cabinets, consider changing the hardware.

You can of course get hardware from just about any good hardware store but if you want something special you can go to an antique store or even a thrift store.

5. Pull-Out Inserts

A good way to improve your kitchen cabinets is to add pull out inserts to the cabinets, the lower cabinets in particular.

The good thing about such inserts is that it’s quite useful in helping you get things in and out of the cabinets, and thus makes them a bit more useful for you.

6. Glass Or Plastic Inserts

If you really like your doors but want to make them look particularly spectacular, you may want to think about how they might look if you remove the existing door inserts and replace them with clear inserts.

These can be in the form of just about any clear material, be it glass, plexiglass, or even plastic — depending on what you want to use to replace the inserts.

7. Internal Storage Bars

Lastly, do your kitchen cabinets a favor and add some internal storage bars to them — they are relatively easy to add to your average kitchen cabinet doors.

They are really good in terms of helping you sort through the things in your cabinets and to be able to find things in the cabinets more easily.
