These days kitchen and bathroom remodels are all the rage. But what if you want a refreshed look without the expense of a full remodel. Here are a few ways you can achieve a new look without breaking the bank.

Paint Your Cabinets

Painted cabinets have become popular recently since it costs up to 50% less than replacing your current cabinetry. If you like the style, just not the color, painting may be the way to go.

There is a wide variety of color options, and painted cabinets are easy to maintain and clean while providing a modern appearance. By painting your cabinets, you can achieve an impactful, yet affordable, improvement to your home.

But What About Durability?
Kitchens and bathrooms are two of the most lived-in parts of a home, so the paint you choose for your cabinets needs to be able to stand up to the daily abuse. While there is some leeway when choosing paint types in other areas of the home, your standard acrylic-latex paint just won't cut it for your cabinets. What you will need is a paint the is specially designed for cabinets or is cabinet friendly that will provide a rock-hard, smooth, self-leveling surface.

Our team here at Browder Painting will help you choose the best cabinet paint for your needs.

Cabinets Before and After


Upgrade Your Hardware

When painting your cabinets to achieve a new look, there is no better way to top it off than with new hardware. Your old knobs, handles, and hinges probably won't match your new look anyway, so you will want to replace them.

Because there are so many different choices for hardware out there, this selection really comes down to personal preference. But be wary of having too many kinds of metals in your kitchen and bath. You'll want to take into account the types of metal used for your refrigerator, stove, faucets, and lighting fixtures, to name a few. If the area already has two different types of metals, you'll generally want to go with one of those for your new cabinet hardware.
