Cabinet Modifications To Complement Your Refinishing

When you're refinishing your kitchen cabinets, it's an excellent opportunity to consider other cabinet modifications and accessories that can enhance the functionality, organization, and overall aesthetics of your kitchen. The popularity of cabinet modifications in the kitchen often depends on individual preferences and the specific needs of the client. However, some cabinet modifications and accessories tend to be widely favored for their practicality and functionality. Here are some cabinet modifications and accessories to think about:

 

  • Hardware Replacement:  Updating the cabinet hardware, such as knobs and handles, can make a significant difference in the appearance of your cabinets. Choose hardware that complements the style and color of your freshly painted cabinets.

 

  • Soft-Close Hinges and Drawer Slides:  Soft-close hinges and drawer slides add a touch of luxury to your cabinets. They prevent slamming and ensure a quieter, more controlled closing motion.

 

  • Pull-Out Shelves:  Pull-out shelves, also known as rollout trays or pull-out drawers, can make it easier to access items in deep cabinets. They're especially handy for pots, pans, and small appliances. Pull-out shelves make it easier to access items in deep cabinets, improving organization and visibility.

 

  • Soft-Close Hinges and Drawer Slides:  Soft-close mechanisms prevent cabinet doors and drawers from slamming shut, creating a quieter and gentler closing motion.

 

  • Under-Cabinet Lighting:  Installing under-cabinet lighting can brighten your workspace and highlight the beauty of your cabinets. LED strips or puck lights are popular choices.

 

  • Pull-Out Trash and Recycling Bins:  Built-in pull-out bins help maintain a clutter-free and organized kitchen by concealing trash and recycling containers.

 

  • Lazy Susans:  Lazy Susans maximize corner cabinet storage by providing a rotating shelf that allows for easy access to items in the back.

 

  • Pull-Out Pantry:  A pull-out pantry offers convenient storage for pantry items and helps keep the kitchen well-organized.

 

  • Glass Cabinet Doors:  Replacing some cabinet doors with glass panels allows for the display of dishes, glassware, or collectibles, adding a touch of elegance.

 

  • Spice Racks:  Pull-out or built-in spice racks keep spices organized and easily accessible during cooking.

 

  • Cabinet Crown Molding:  Crown molding adds a finishing touch to cabinets, giving them a custom and upscale appearance.

 

These popular cabinet modifications can significantly enhance the functionality and organization of your kitchen, making daily tasks more manageable and improving the overall appearance of the space. The specific modifications you choose should align with your kitchen layout, storage needs, and design preferences.

Brick & Stone Refinishing

When it comes to refinishing or painting your exterior brick, you have several options to consider. The choice you make should depend on your desired look, maintenance requirements, and the current condition of your brick. Here are some common options:

 

  • Exterior Brick Painting:  This involves applying high-quality masonry paint to the brick surface. You can choose from a wide range of colors, and painting can provide a fresh, updated appearance. Keep in mind that once you paint brick, it's challenging to go back to the natural brick look, so it's a long-term commitment.

 

  • Staining:  Brick staining involves applying a semi-transparent stain to enhance or change the color of the brick while allowing its texture to show through. Stains can create a natural, earthy look, and they come in various shades.

 

  • Brick Veneer Installation:  If your existing brick is in poor condition or you want a completely different look, you can opt to install brick veneer over the existing surface. This allows you to select the type, color, and style of brick that suits your design preferences.

 

 

The choice between these options depends on factors such as your desired outcome, the condition of your brick, and your maintenance preferences. It's essential to consult with a professional Can Do More Painting – Renovation and Design, to determine the best approach for your specific project and to ensure that the work is done to a high standard.

Front Door Refinishing

Refinishing your front door can breathe new life into your home's curb appeal and enhance its overall appearance. Depending on the current condition and your design preferences, you have several options to refinish your front door:

 

  • Staining:  Staining is an excellent choice if you have a wooden front door. It enhances the natural wood grain, adds warmth, and highlights the door's beauty. You can choose from a variety of stain colors to achieve the desired look.

 

  • Painting:  Painting your front door is a versatile option that allows you to change the color and style to match your home's exterior and design preferences. You can opt for classic colors, bold hues, or even a vibrant accent color.

 

  • Varnishing:  Varnish is a clear or lightly tinted finish that highlights the natural beauty of wooden doors. It provides protection and can be used to achieve a classic, timeless appearance.

 

  • Refinishing the Hardware:  Don't forget about the door hardware. Refinishing or replacing the handle, knocker, and other hardware components can complement the door's new finish and give it a complete, updated look.

 

  • Re-staining and Sealing:  If your front door is already stained but has become faded or worn over time, you can choose to re-stain and reseal it to restore its original beauty and provide protection.

 

  • Repairs:  Before refinishing, inspect the door for any damage or structural issues. Address any necessary repairs, such as fixing cracks, dents, or loose joints, to ensure your front door is in top condition.

 

  • Weatherstripping and Sealing:  Along with the aesthetics, consider improving the door's energy efficiency. Installing or replacing weatherstripping and ensuring a tight seal can help reduce drafts and energy costs.

 

The refinishing method you select should align with your door's material, your design vision, and your maintenance preferences.

Furniture Refinishing

When it comes to furniture refinishing, you have several options to consider depending on your goals, the current condition of the furniture, and your design preferences. Here are some common furniture refinishing options:

 

  • Stripping and Refinishing:  This method involves removing the existing finish or paint from the furniture and then applying a new finish or paint. It's a suitable choice if you want to change the furniture's color or restore its original look. Stripping can be done with chemical strippers, heat guns, or sanding.

 

  • Staining:  If you have wooden furniture, staining is an excellent option. It enhances the natural wood grain and color while providing protection. You can choose from various stain colors to achieve the desired look.

 

  • Painting:  Painting is a versatile option for refinishing furniture. It allows you to change the color and style to match your interior decor. Consider different paint types, such as chalk paint for a shabby-chic look or high-gloss paint for a modern finish.

 

  • Distressing:  Distressing involves intentionally creating a weathered or antique look by sanding or using other techniques to remove paint or finish in specific areas. It's often used for shabby-chic or vintage-style furniture.

 

  • Rejuvenation:  Sometimes, furniture refinishing is about restoring the existing finish or making minor repairs to bring back its original beauty. This may include re-gluing joints, fixing scratches, or refreshing the finish with polish or wax.

 

  • Reassembly:  For furniture with multiple components or intricate designs, you may need to disassemble and reassemble the piece during the refinishing process. This allows for thorough refinishing and repair work.

 

It's essential to evaluate the condition of your furniture and consider your goals before choosing a refinishing method. Some projects may require professional expertise, especially if they involve valuable or antique furniture. Furniture refinishing is expensive, so it is only a viable option if the furniture is of great monetary value or sentimental value.

Tile Refinishing

Tile refinishing, also known as tile resurfacing or reglazing, is a process that involves renewing the appearance of existing tiles without the need for complete tile replacement. It is a cost-effective and less disruptive alternative to tearing out old tiles and installing new ones, commonly used in kitchens, and other tiled areas. Here's how tile refinishing typically works:

 

  1. Preparation:  The tiles are cleaned and thoroughly prepared to ensure a smooth and clean surface for the refinishing process. This may involve removing grout stains, soap scum, and any other contaminants.

 

  1. Repairs:  Any damaged or loose tiles are repaired or re-adhered as needed to ensure a solid base for the refinishing materials.

 

  1. Priming:  A bonding primer is applied to the tiles. This primer helps the refinishing materials adhere securely to the tile surface.

 

  1. Refinishing:  A specialized coating, often made of epoxy or acrylic materials, is applied to the tiles. This coating can come in various colors, and it's designed to create a fresh, uniform, and durable finish.

 

  1. Curing:  The refinishing material is allowed to dry and cure properly, ensuring a long-lasting and attractive result.

 

  1. Sealing:  In some cases, a clear topcoat or sealer is applied to protect the new finish and enhance its longevity.

 

Tile refinishing offers several benefits:

 

  • Cost-Effective:  It is more budget-friendly compared to tile replacement, as it eliminates the need for labor-intensive tile removal and disposal.

 

  • Time-Saving:  Tile refinishing can be completed in a relatively short period, minimizing disruption to your home.

 

  • Renewed Appearance:  It provides old or dated tiles with a fresh, modern look, allowing you to update the style of your space.

 

  • Customization:  You can choose from a variety of colors and finishes to match your design preferences.

 

However, it's essential to note that tile refinishing is not suitable for all situations. It works best on tiles that are in good structural condition, but have aesthetic issues or outdated designs. It may not be the ideal solution for severely damaged tiles or tiles located in wet environments such as showers. Consult with Can Do More Painting – Renovation and Design to determine if this method is suitable for your specific project.
