I have seen many upgrades of low-budget kitchens in the thirty years of building my cabinet. To successfully recreate you only need a few ideas that will look good, but don’t require a lot of money. I will give you one that is proven to improve your closet without spending a lot of money.
If your kitchen has a flat Formica cabinet door or older painted wood, you can tidy it up by adding a few decorative prints around the edges. The only thing you really need to pay attention to is the position of the mold according to the way it is opened.
It may be necessary to install fancy trims about one inch or more from the edge of the door so they will open without problems. You can paint or paint the mold before attaching it to the cupboard door.
Add Decorative Molding to the Cabinet Door
- Miter Saw
- Electric Drill with Small Bit
- Nail punch
- Paint brush
- Measuring tape
- Decorative Wood Trim
- Caulking color
- 220 Sand Paper
- Paint brush
- Small Finished Nails
- Wood Putty Stick
You have two options for completing your door trim. You can paint it with a solid color or tarnish it and then stick the clear layer on top of the stain
Using Solid Color Paint on Molding
First, you can get colored caulking that will match the color of the Formica sample chip from the local cabinet supplier company. I suggest you choose the color you want to paint the decorative door painting from the Formica plastic laminate chip chain. Then, color caulking messages from the cabinet supplier company to suit your choice. The hanging will be used to fill the partner joints and also to fill the nail holes.
Molding Kitchen Door Molding
When you choose to tarnish your prints, you must take wood filler putty to match the stain color.
You need to measure the amount of decorative mold you need to repair your kitchen cabinet door. Make sure to double and check your triple calculation and then add a little extra.
Travel to the nearest home center (Home Depot) to buy the materials and tools you need. If painting the trim, use the color of your Formica sample to make the paint mixture accordingly. When you are there, discuss the cabinet door renovation project with the paint department expert so that you get all the right base paint and the paint you will need.
As long as your kitchen is renovated, be patient. If you don’t spend time, you will blow up your budget by making mistakes. Give plenty of time. You are trying to get professional results at an affordable budget.
Superior, painted wood or stain for the work of remodeling your cabinet while still intact. Leave it to dry completely.
After the finish has been painted on the molded part of the door, use your partner’s box or saw and start cutting your part. MAKE SURE YOUR MITER IS NICE AND TIGHT. This will be a good time to get out of the calculator and look for decorative trim sizes. Do one door at a time and always start with the biggest and move to the smallest, get the best use of your ingredients.
Pre-drill the hole for the nail finish and attach the mold to the kitchen cabinet door. Use a nail stick to sink the head of the nail deep enough so that it can be covered with wood putty or wooden putty.
Now, you can add additional stains or paint if you need to slightly improve the situation. The last step is to use colored caulking or wooden putty sticks to fill all the flaws and nail holes.
Even though this is a cheap kitchen cabinet repair, it can really add a rich look to your kitchen cabinet door. I strongly recommend that you take the time to overhaul the face of the drawer too.
