Updating my kitchen without replacing cabinets Real milfs want to chat no memberships

We moved to our new house a little over a week ago. First, I removed all the doors and drawers and then I removed the hardware – hinges, pulls and screws. I had no idea it was copper until after the hardware sat in de-greaser overnight. I screwed the hinges back onto the doors and made a trip to Lowe’s.

Ours was a little on the insane side, but it ended perfectly. I decided to trim the doors out to cover part of the old-fashioned hinge that extended onto the cabinet door. I just felt like that poke-y part was a bit too dated.

It’s been said that kitchen upgrades can significantly increase the value of a home. Wallpaper can wake up a room and add energy and buzz. Replacing cabinets can be very expensive and a large undertaking.

A total kitchen renovation is a costly, timely and arduous task but there are ways to update and renovate your kitchen without inconveniencing your family, disrupting family life and more importantly, without having to spend a small fortune. If your kitchen is white why not consider going green, grey or blue? If your cabinets aren’t terribly old; if they’re in good shape but just out of date, a new coat of paint or a dark wood stain can easily upgrade and update your cabinets.

Mix up colors on upper and lower cabinets, or on cabinets and islands as shown here, to add richness.

I told you all about my sad no painting allowed story on Wednesday.

Off-the-shelf cabinets and inexpensive tile also helped cut costs.

Free up cabinet space, and create a clever spot for collectibles, with above-window shelving.

Since we chose to rent out our house, we wanted to be realistic about a few things.

The house is probably not going to be returned to us in better shape than we handed it over. ) But also, there is a limit to how much we can earn each month from the house, so investing in to a new kitchen would be pointless, (at least until we decide to sell – and I doubt we will do it then either).
