INSTANT KITCHEN CABINET UPGRADE WITHOUT BREAKING THE BANK

Handle With Care

You may have been thinking about a kitchen remodel for some time but the budget is not quite there. You don’t want to spend much but you would like a bit of a new look while the pennies for your full remodel are mounting. Interior designers love to switch out the knobs or pulls on kitchen cabinets. It is one of the easiest upgrades you can make without needing the help of a contractor. It is amazing the difference good quality hardware can make. It  can take your kitchen from dated to modern in minutes.

CHECK THE HOLES

You don’t need a kitchen contractor to install new knobs if you are reasonably handy. The main thing to remember when selecting is to be aware of the holes that are already in your cabinets.  Decide whether you want new hardware to fit the same holes. If you choose something different or go from a single knob to a handle that requires 2 screw,  you will have to drill new holes. Remember to measure the depth of the cabinet door to make sure the threads of screws are long enough.

LOTS TO CHOOSE FROM

There are just so many styles to choose from whether you want to go sophisticated, classic or fun and funky. If the knobs are a temporary upgrade before a full kitchen remodel, then why not choose something that will make you smile and is a little bit more individual.

COUNT THE KNOBS

Count the number of pulls or knobs in your kitchen before you go shopping so you can work out the maximum you want to spend per piece to fit your budget. If you have a large kitchen, there may be more than you think.
