A big budget isn’t the only way to invest in your home and upsell your kitchen. A few small changes can make a big difference. Here are four ways to upgrade your cabinets according to home stagers.
- Switch the Color. If you have the time to put in the work, update your cabinets with a few coats of paint or a darker stain. You may have to strip the cabinets beforehand, but the results are worth it. While white cabinets are trendy, consider navy blue, dark green, black and gray.
- Swap Doors and Hardware. Your cabinets can be upgraded without uninstalling everything. Look for modern and simple faces with contemporary doors and drawers fronts. Pair with new hardware made of brushed brass, polished chrome or copper to make an impressive visual difference.
- Focus on the Fridge. If adding extra cabinetry, try placing it around a fridge. A couple stacked cabinets next to or on top of the fridge makes a kitchen look more expensive with a built-in look.
- Style Smartly. Remain conscious of your cabinet and shelf styling. An open shelf will make a statement in a kitchen as well as a consistent color scheme. Add pops of texture with a plant or wood bowl to give warmth to the look. Look for varying height and sizes of your objects to create visual interest.
