The Steps To Refresh Kitchen Cupboards
A cupboard as a part of cabinetry in a kitchen is barely easy to ignore. Whenever you are dealing with a new kitchen setting up or a kitchen remodel, I don’t believe if you don’t think about it at all. But, I am not going to talk about how to get the best cupboards or how much the prices of kitchen cupboards are. I am going to talk about how to refresh a cupboard’s look.
Refreshing a cupboard means you revitalize it to make it look as it was when you bought it and work as good as it was on the first day of its use.
Uninstalling the Doors, Replacing the Handles, Refinishing, and Reinstalling the Doors and Hinges
More or less, the project of refreshing a cupboard includes uninstalling the doors that is continued with replacing the handles in form or knobs and/or pulls, refinishing, and finally reinstalling the doors. Such steps are what professionals commonly do when in charge of such a project. The problem is: how to implement it?
Read these if you want to know.
- Cupboard’s doors un-installation is the very first step.
The very first step of the revitalization is to remove the cupboard’s door from the unit. Remove though the hinges that connect them. The aim of uninstalling the doors is to make it easier to refinish the whole unit of the cupboard. Do it regardless the type of the kitchen cupboards is that you have in your kitchen.
- Replacing the handles is the next step.
The removal of the doors needs to be followed with removing the handles. The reason may vary between each different person. Someone does it because he or she thinks about preventing the handles from getting contaminated by the new finish material. Meanwhile, another person remove them because they are about to replace them with the new ones. All in all, whether or not you are going to install the replacements, the old handles need to be removed first to make it easier to refinish.
- Refinishing is the main part.
The essence of refreshing kitchen cupboards is refinishing them. It is because such an action is what will change significantly the appearance of the cupboards. There are several refinishing methods that can be applied to cupboards. A cupboard can be refinished using lacquer. Meanwhile, you can also refinish a cupboard in your kitchen using varnish or even just main paint.
- Reinstalling the Removed Doors and Handles
After the new finish is dry, anything you remove needs to be reattached. The doors and the handles need to be reinstalled before the cupboard is ready to use again. In many cases of refreshing kitchen cupboards, new handles are chosen because they are effective in boosting the appearance of the cupboards.
