Updating old kitchen cupboards
But, it demonstrates my point that it gives the eye more to look at here. You’ll notice that these cabinets are also flush with the cabinet frames, which makes the hinges a little less noticeable.
But sometimes, the hinge effect just isn’t quite as charming, and can be more distracting than anything.
It's not just a lack of storage that can make living in a kitchen you can't renovate kind of miserable, it's a lack of usable and accessible storage.
So add those magnetic wall-mounted knife blocks and hanging pot holders.
Granted, with polished chrome hardware, it would minimize the hinge effect, but suppose you like oil rubbed bronze hardware?It makes a bigger difference than what you’d think!Many older kitchens out there have exposed hinges, where you can see the hinge mounted to the cabinet frame.If you don't have a window, it'll be even more vital for reflecting what light you do have.
Even if you don't hate the backsplash you've got, you can still wow without a lot of money and in a way that won't be permanent in case you rent or are just looking for a temporary solution until you save money.A lot depends on what kind of cabinet overlay you’re dealing with and the aesthetic that you’re looking for in this sort of project.
