4 Inexpensive Ways to Update Your Kitchen Cabinets, Red Wing, Minnesota

A desirable kitchen is top priority for most homebuyers, so it can pay off to make some updates before selling your house. One area to focus on is the cabinets. Old, lackluster ones can be an instant turn off during showings, but fortunately, there are several ways to give them new life without having to invest in a complete replacement.

How to Spruce Up Your Kitchen Cabinets on a Budget

1. Replace the Hardware

If your cabinets are plain, switching out the hardware can give their appearance a boost. This is an excellent do-it-yourself project to tackle, as it won’t take much time or effort. When choosing new hardware, make sure it complements the color palette of your kitchen and the existing features, such as lights and faucets.

2. Paint 

selling your houseCabinets that have gone out of style or turned dingy can easily be rejuvenated with a fresh coat of paint. Although bold colors are currently trending in home design, it’s best to stick with neutral shades when selling your house. Whites, grays, and beiges will appeal to the broadest audience and can help smaller spaces look larger.

3. Install Glass Inserts 

Refacing your cabinet doors with glass inserts will give your kitchen a bright and airy feel. This upgrade can instantly make outdated cabinets look more modern, and there are a variety of glass options available to fit any style, including frosted, plexiglass, textured, and tinted. 

4. Add Molding or Trim 

Applying crown molding or trim to basic builder-grade cabinets will give them a more customized and elegant aesthetic. Molding will also add some height to the kitchen. These are small details that will make a favorable impression on buyers without costing you a lot of money right before selling your house.
