Whether you opt for country chic or super high modern style, there is something for everyone – and we have the ultimate guide to help you replace your doors, and enjoy your new environment.Before you get started, there are a few questions you will need to consider, and we will explore these below.
Why Are You Upgrading?
Before you get started, take a little time to consider your motivations. Do you want to totally change the space into something new, or keep your existing style? Are you changing your kitchen to adapt to your lifestyle, for example, your growing family, or to cater for a new, exciting social life? What sort of budget are you working with, and is there any flexibility? By considering your motivations, aspirations and intentions, you can make sure that you are making the right decisions and purchases – this will help everything to run far more smoothly, and reduce the risk of delay or error.
What Style Are You Looking For?
This will be related to your motivations – if you are sharing the space with growing children, a high shine, bright white finish may not be the best option – but wipeable, smooth surfaces could be a lifesaver. Similarly, if you are looking to cheer up a small space, a bright, airy design could make an incredible difference. Alternatively, you could create a dramatic, statement space in your home with dark, moody tones and shades, combined with an ultra modern design. By considering your ideal end result, you can narrow down the options available to you.
Do You Need Any Extras?
Modern kitchens come with a host of extras which can make your life easier, and you will need to consider whether to add these to your home. Options such as soft-close cupboards can make a real difference – or they may be an expensive, unnecessary extra depending on your circumstances. Remember that details such as hinges and handles can also make a big difference to the overall look, and these are things you will need to consider when switching your cabinets for shiny new options.
Are My Bases Solid?
As long as the carcass of your cabinet is strong, stable and in good condition, replacing your doors is simple – just unscrew the old, and replace with the new model! As long as you are not looking to make major changes to layout, or radically transform the room, this is a fat, affordable way to enjoy a stylish new space with minimal effort.
