By Paul Fox

The kitchen Cabinet is one type of a built in furniture that is used for storing the dishes, silverware, cooking equipment, and food. Usually, some appliances like ovens, refrigerator, and dishwashers are integrated into a kitchen cabinetry. There are many available cabinet types presently.

In order to achieve the perfect and the quick makeover, you must be focusing only on the cabinet renovation. If ever you have decided on doing this renovation just by yourself, you will surely have lesser costs if compared to having the professionals do the work for you. Also, a remodeling cabinet Seattle WA only requires little upgrades and little changes for making the appearance of furniture new again.

Remodeling can be done in just three easy steps. So first is to replace the handles and the hinges. Replacing the existing hard wares can be one of the easiest and most inexpensive way for giving the cabinets a new look. The old handles are pull types and if you want to change it into drawer knobs, you will really have to deal with 2 holes since the knob has one hole only and is placed at the center.

But now, the problem can be solved through using faceplates. These should be installed first before the knobs. The main purpose of these faceplates is to cover the holes left by drawer pulls. Pulls may also be covered with faceplates with two holes.

When you will replace the hinges, be sure to know if the cabinets are making use of mortise hinges or non mortise hinges. Know also if hinges will be required on being either a semi concealed or a fully concealed. Next is refinishing those existing cabinets. If the cabinets that you have are still solid in looks but you already tired of having that look, consider to change the finishes by painting or by staining.

Doing this will allow you on leaving the cabinet in its place, without the need to clear it out and live out with empty boxed for a few weeks. However, you need to make sure that all the items placed inside it are far from the edges when staining or painting the area. And one important thing is to make sure that before painting, the surfaces that are to be painted must be clean and smooth.

In order to smoothen the surfaces, use the fine grit sandpaper. This can smoothen those rough areas. Nicks, digs, and other imperfections may be filled by using the wall filler or the latex wood filler when priming is not started yet. Follow the given instructions carefully when filling.

And lastly is refacing those existing cabinets. When refacing, the only perfect choice is changing the styles of the doors and of the drawers. For achieving the color matches, do a veneer application to the front cabinet.

There are already a lot of companies in Seattle, WA who are selling veneer panels made of thick plywood and these are the same as the wood species of most doors and drawer fronts. You may purchase either stained or may be unstained types of drawer fronts, plywood panels, doors, and veneer. The unstained types will give you more options for the color.
