Turn Ordinary Cabinets into Extraordinary Cabinets

There is no need to settle for ordinary cabinets when you can transform them into extraordinary cabinets. Give your budget-friendly cabinets a custom look in any array of styles you choose. Popular cabinet styles include modern, traditional and country. Here are some tips you can do to give your cabinets that custom look.

DIY Cabinet Upgrades:

Accents – Use door accents to enhance your cabinet doors look. They come in a variety of styles, textures and colors. Frosted glass doors or stainless steel door accents can enhance the visual appeal to any cabinet door.

Molding – Add molding to your cabinets for a more elegant look. You can go from simple classic to dramatic elegance. Adding molding to the tops, bottom and edges of your cabinets give it the perfect finishing touch. You can even conceal under cabinet lighting with molding around the bottoms of the cabinets.

Cabinet Legs – You can make your built-in cabinets appear to be freestanding by adding cabinet legs to the focal point of your cabinets.

Trim – Use decorative trim pieces like corner details, corbels, and onlays to customize your cabinets. These can be found for very affordable prices at your local home store.

Choosing the perfect cabinets for your home:

If you decide to buy your cabinets custom built just remember that while in the store it’s easy for various styles to catch your eye. However, it is the inner details you need to look at.
