In the Raleigh-Durham area of NC, where hundreds of thousands of new homes have popped up in the past 10 years, sadly a lot of those home received, dare I say it, UGLY builder-grade cabinets. With tract builders, it’s all about putting up the biggest house possible, on the smallest lot possible, and then just finishing it off quickly. There’s no thought whatsoever put into design, color, or even durability.
We’ve run across hundreds of homeowners who think they’re stuck with ugly oak-veneered kitchen and bath cabinets. But not anymore. With something as quick and painless as a new paint job, we’ve been able to transform these sad, cookie cutter designs, into gorgeous, custom-looking cabinets, usually in less than 1 week.
Just look at some of these amazing examples of what a little paint, and some new hardware can do:
Dana, at House Tweaking
Chelsea, at Two Twenty One, went from drab oak, to bright and airy!
NataLee, from Designed To The Nines, went bold with color in the bathroom!
If you love red, check out what Kerrie, at Boxers, Cleats & Me did to her kitchen cabinets!
Trends and styles change. It’s OK to not be in love with the cabinets you once loved. That’s why we think paint is a great option for today’s homeowners – whether it’s for cabinets, walls, or furniture. Paint is always an easy fix. Go all white, for a classic, timeless look that you’re guaranteed to love for a long time. Or pick a bold color that you love, if you plan on staying in your house for the foreseeable future.
