4 Quick Cabinet Upgrades

Improve storage and style for a fraction of the cost of new cabinets

Kitchen remodels are often a homeowner's dream project, but they can be pricey. Sometimes, a kitchen just needs a little face-lift. In this article, builder Gary Striegler shows how he brought new life to an old kitchen with an upgrade to its cabinets. First, Striegler replaced solid doors with framed panels. For this part of the project, he was able to reuse the old cabinet doors, but gave them a new look. Second, he upgraded the drawers with drawer slides and improved lower-cabinet access with pullout drawers. Third, Striegler made fixed shelves adjustable, which allows the cabinets better opportunity to accommodate objects of different heights. Finally, he added trim to enhance the cabinets' appearance.
