Finally, if you choose to replace your cabinets entirely or if you`re installing brand-new ones, consider buying them completely unfinished, in a "bare wood" state, and then finishing them with stain or paint yourself. You`ll save money up front this way, as opposed to paying for finished or semi-finished cabinets.
Next, you could consider the true DIY route and build your own cabinets. This may seem daunting, but cabinets are in the range of "medium difficulty" when it comes to carpentry and construction. There are many online resources and books available for reference should you choose this route.
Painting and staining is an inexpensive way to update your kitchen cabinets and make them like new again. To get that smooth, like-new look, the trick is in the light sanding between coats of paint. If you do it yourself, be prepared to be working on it over the course of two or three weekends or a full week or two, and plan for your kitchen to be out of commission during this time. The process will require you to remove the cabinet doors and hardware, clean all of it thoroughly and paint or stain it all separately. You`ll need to apply primer before you paint, and you`ll have to decide if you`re going to use a paint brush or a sprayer.
