Upgrading Cabinets in Santa Monica

April, 2013 by

How can you spruce up your kitchen with a more modest budget? Change the paint color of kitchen cabinetry, replace the door fronts, or switch out the existing hardware. All three techniques can create the look of a brand new kitchen remodel without the price tag. Make your cabinets Santa Monica look like more like an expensive Hollywood movie scene.

Changing your hardware is a more do-it-yourself option, but contracting with a professional for painting and refacing will save time and money, should a mistake occur. The Kitchen Store has been providing kitchen remodeling assistance and services since 1965. Contact us for new cabinets Santa Monica.


Applying a new coat of paint to existing cabinetry can give birth to a new kitchen. Unearth your personality and explore warm, inviting colors. A warmer color coating can also help open up the kitchen and allow the sunlight to illuminate the space. Turn a drab, old-fashioned kitchen to a bright, personable cooking and eating area with a light green, yellow, or blue paint hue. If you are more adventurous, dare to spice up the kitchen area with vivid, neon colors used systematically as an accent color rather than applying paint to all the cabinets.


Interested in a more drastic look to your kitchen, but still within a modest budget, the technique of refacing allows you to keep the foundation of your cabinets in tact while changing out the doors. This creates the look of a full cabinet remodel. Wood veneer is used to match the look of the new doors with the remaining wood that is visual to the eye. Refacing is similar to utilizing wallpaper to achieve a new look in a room. For a more edgier look, consider removing the doors altogether or even replacing wooden doors with glass fronts. Aside from easily being able to locate glassware, glass panels offers a way to display your classic and vintage dinnerware.
