Deco panels on islands or ends of cabinets are made to match your door style. They enhance the lower ends of cabinets and islands. They are a good idea if you added glaze to any of your cabinets because the back of your island will also be addressed.
It’s very popular to mix and match your colors. Glazes can add a good custom feature to any cabinet refacing job. If you’re looking for something classy and contemporary choose a shaker style door and mix a white upper cabinet with a dark lower cabinet.
Adding glass doors in your kitchen brings in more light. It’s a very inexpensive thing to do and is very modern looking. We suggest only adding them on a few cabinets on the ends to introduce variety without overdoing it.
Convert two door sections into three or more door boxes. This is especially helpful if you have a lot of pots and pans and adds a very custom look since only high end cabinets have it. No more crawling around on your hands and knees.
Early desk area cabinets had cubby holes and that look is very dated. So if you’re doing a reface project put taller doors on to hide the old 1990’s look cubby holes. In fact, nobody wants a desk in the kitchen anymore so it’s now common to raise the desk to counter height and turn it into a wine rack. This is very easy to add when you are refacing the cabinets.
When you are picking your counter tops always pick your wood species and color first. Then it’s easier to match color from the wood with your countertops by pulling out natural shades in the stone to complement the wood.
