MB HLW - HOME LIVING: WEST, Tuesday, March 20, 2012 1 CHALLENGES OF CABINETS CONTEMPORARY OR CLASSIC? Janita Singh Kitchen cabinets come in many designs and materials. BE CLEVER There are several clever ways to give your kitchen cabinets an updated look. Resurfacing: This involves removing the old surface and applying laminate veneers or a panel of your choice on existing cabinets. Refinishing One of the more affordable options, it involves repainting or re- staining cabinets, making it less expensive than replacing them. Strip the cabinet of its old finish by sanding or using a paint stripper. Then sand the cabinet, which helps remove minor imperfections. Finally, apply paint or stain. Refacing: This involves replacing the cabinet doors and drawer fronts with new ones. Elbow grease: Sometimes giving your old cabinets a good clean and replacing doors and handles is all it takes. KITCHENS EVERY homeowner putting together a new kitchen or remodelling their old one will be faced with the chal- lenge of choosing cabinets. With so many choices, where do you start? Kitchen cabinets come in many designs and ma- terials. But in general they fall in two categories -- con- temporary and classic. Remember to pick cabi- nets to complement the rest of the kitchen design. Work within your budget: Smaller budgets may mean choosing tried- and-true practical solutions over more expensive styles. Do measurements: It's important to get these right first time to avoid costly last-minute alterations. Deciding on a design: Your lifestyle will be an important factor. Big famil- ies will need lots of storage space. Factors like style, size and finish will need to be decided on. Finishing factor: Don't forget, kitchen cabi- nets are used many times a day and should operate smoothly. Look in maga- zines and shop around in specialised kitchen stores. Choose something that will suit your lifestyle. Seen any great ideas?
