Unless budget isn’t an issue for you, stock cabinets are the most sensible choice when you need a quick and convenient storage solution for your kitchen. But even if they’re pre-built to standard sizes, you can actually turn them into something that’s more custom-made. Here are some tips on how to do so.
1. Add crown molding to make it look taller. Installing crown molding can help create a more custom-look for your stock cabinets. You can use light colors to give it a modern sense while maintaining a classic appearance. To make your stock cabinets appear taller, you can use two pieces of crown molding on this project and extend them all the way to the ceiling.
2. Pick your cabinet style. You can modify your stock cabinets’ design by adopting one of the many cabinet styles available. Stock cabinets in these styles can be raised, flat, paneled or shaker-style. Homeowners often choose paneled or shaker styles when renovating their stock cabinets.
3. Choose your color. There are many different types of stock cabinet colors, so it’s important to choose the right ones for your needs. Popular kitchen hues are white, black, gray and navy blue. Choose two colors for cabinet surfaces and drawers for a personalized look. Mix and match, or use as-is.
4. Add storage solutions. Making the most of your cabinets’ basic role as storage can help you give them a look that is particular to your lifestyle. Since built-in storage cabinets make better use of space, it is considerably simpler to add more storage when using stock cabinets.
