Three Ways to Revitalize Your Discount Kitchen Cabinets

by Greg Keefer

Stock kitchen cabinets are great for the price-minded consumer, and, in all fairness, many manufacturers produce admirable discount kitchen cabinets. However, some stock cabinets are poorly made and periodically need to be revitalized.

Discount kitchen cabinets aren't designed to be customized, but here are a few, creative improvements you can make to draw attention away from the defects and lend uniqueness and functionality to your kitchen:

  • Have Some Fun: You certainly don't want to tear up perfectly good kitchen cabinets, but, sometimes, removing one from the wall and replacing it with something else makes good sense. Carefully cut away one of the middle cabinets to install a chalk board for messages. Kids will love it. Other insert ideas include a mirror, painting the wall with magnetic paint, or hanging a removable bulletin board for photos. Hang two, smaller cabinets to leave an opening bordered by veneered cabinet sides and complimentary trim.
  • Replace Stock Finishes or Improve Bare Wood: Depending on the quality of your discount kitchen cabinets, you can remove the finish and replace it with a high-quality veneer. This takes a lot of work and an idea best suited to unfinished cabinets. Bare wood cabinets take on new life and value.
  • Paint Discount Kitchen Cabinets with a Purpose: Paint discount cabinets to accentuate the colors of the kitchen or create an interesting eye-catcher. The sky's the limit on designs, contrasts, patterns, and colors.

Discount kitchen cabinets are a great way for budget-conscious do-it-yourselfers to express creative ideas and save money at the same time. Going cheap is fine, if you can get away with it!
