Updating kitchen wooden cabinets
And of course you can hire a cabinet company to do this for you, but with a bottle of wine and a saw you might be AMAZED at what you can accomplish (it’s how I trim my toenails…) Seriously though, want to know how Confessions of a Serial DIY’er has a great ‘how-to’ as does my gal Tamara over at Provident Home Design.
Using unified decor with a consistent colour palette can really help to update a kitchen or bathroom with oak cabinets.
After winter and spring, I became a little stir crazy and decided to freshen it up a bit, with the help of my friends at Delta® Faucet.
We wanted to make it feel fresh, without doing remodeling, painting the oak cabinets or spending a lot of money.
By choosing hardware with soft, curved lines, Julie managed to give this kitchen a new lease on life and the cathedral style door/hardware look natural and well-coordinated.
The use of greenery keeps the accessories in this room well-connected and complementary to the oak cabinets.
To accent the original oak cabinets and porcelain sink, I added a kitchen towel in a beautiful scallop pattern which reminded me of the breathtaking stain glass ceiling at the Chicago Cultural Center.
Painting our oak cabinets wasn’t an option because it’s costly and time-consuming.
When we moved into our lake cottage, we immediately decluttered the kitchen, removing wall hangings and ivy.
It instantly felt bigger and helped expose its charm.We removed the wallpaper and painted the walls to make the space feel light, bright and open, but replacing the faucet with a Delta Cassidy™ faucet in beautiful Champagne Bronze made the most significant impact.
