Resurfacing Your Kitchen Cabinets to Give Your Kitchen a Facelift
Kitchen cabinets are an essential component of your kitchen, as they serve both storage and decorative purpose. Over time, however, cabinets can become worn down or outdated and need a facelift. If you don’t have the budget for all new cabinets, resurfacing is an excellent option. In this blog, we will discuss the steps you should take to properly resurface your kitchen cabinets and give your kitchen that much-needed update!
Step One: Finish Doors and Drawer Fronts
The first step in resurfacing your kitchen cabinet is to finish the doors and drawer fronts. Start by washing them with a mild soap and water solution before gently sanding them down. This will help ensure that the stain adheres evenly across the surface of the door or drawer front. After sanding, use a stain that matches the new veneer you plan on using for your kitchen cabinet. Once done staining, fill in any detailed areas with a paintbrush before allowing everything to completely dry before rehanging the doors or installing hardware.
Step Two: Apply Veneer
Once you’ve taken care of all of your doors and drawer fronts it’s time to start applying veneer to the top of your cabinets and sides if desired. Start by measuring out the exact size needed for each cabinet surface before cutting out the veneer pieces accordingly. To apply the veneer correctly make sure to adhere it to one side of the cabinet at a time while ensuring there are no air bubbles between surfaces as this can cause damage over time. Once everything is applied properly let it sit for about 24 hours so that it has enough time to cure correctly before moving on to step three.
Step Three: Hang Doors & Drawers
The last step in resurfacing your kitchen cabinet is to hang all of the doors and drawers back onto their respective surfaces. This can be done by using screws or nails depending on what type of material you used when making your cabinet frame (i.e., wood or metal). Make sure that each door or drawer is hung correctly so that they open easily without any resistance from either side. Once finished, enjoy!
Resurfacing kitchen cabinets is an excellent way to update them without breaking your budget! The steps above will help guide you through every part of this process, from finishing off doors and drawer fronts right up to hanging them back onto their respective surfaces! Don’t be afraid to get creative with how you design these components as well; consider different materials such as wood veneers or vinyl laminates when choosing how best to give your kitchen an updated look! Good luck!
