Painting and staining is an inexpensive way to update your kitchen cabinets and make them like new again. To get that smooth, like-new look, the trick is in the light sanding between coats of paint. If you do it yourself, be prepared to be working on it over the course of two or three weekends or a full week or two, and plan for your kitchen to be out of commission during this time.
"In Victorian times, they used dark woods, like walnut, cherry or mahogany, and stained them almost black," Jennifer says. Couple those with a creamy granite or marble countertop, and you've got the perfect period look. Susan envisions a more modern take: "frameless black cabinetry with reeded glass inserts, stainless-steel appliances, art glass pendants and a mosaic glass-tile backsplash."
Any of these customized features can help make kitchen life easier and more organized. However, each of these items comes at a cost to be considered when budgeting your kitchen project.
