New cabinets not in the cards for you? Painting and staining your kitchen’s existing cabinetry is a great option for homeowners on a budget. You could choose a vibrant and bold blue, or a dark, modern black finish to cover up outdated wood and dingy colored cabinets of yesteryear. From distressing doors to paint glazes and stains, you will be surprised how your elbow grease and some additional color will transform your old cabinetry into new.
Many outdated kitchens were built to include walls and walls of upper cabinetry to house dishes and cookware. Often times, these cabinets consume the eye and make the kitchen feel crowded. If you’re looking to open up the space of your kitchen and don’t have and room to grow outwards, consider removing the upper cabinets. This frees up the wall, allowing for modern open shelving with a few decorative items and dishware.
Let’s review the basics on mid-century design and why it works for a small kitchen: Pastels and bright, vibrant colors add life to a small kitchen by brightening it and giving it a cheerful vibe. The minimalist open space concept of tall ceilings, fewer walls or open shelving makes a small kitchen look larger and removes some of the heaviness dark cabinets can create. Wood adds value and a warm, earthy feel. Fun, quirky retro or vintage accessories and appliances put fun back into a small kitchen design.
3. Freezer Is Not Defrosting - It isn't normal for your freezer to frost over. The good thing is that you could do a manual defrost. Plug everything back in afterward and see what happens. If the frosting over occurs again, it could mean that something is very seriously wrong that cannot be easily repaired by a DIYer.
