When you are looking to modernize your kitchen design by updating and upgrading your kitchen cabinets, you may find yourself wondering what your options are. There are many different ways that you can modernize your kitchen cabinets from quick easy projects to more involved and expansive remodeling. Get to know some of the unique and modern ways that you can remodel your kitchen cabinets so that you can get started on your project right away.

Repaint Your Existing Cabinet In A Bold Color Or Pattern

If you are remodeling your kitchen on a limited budget, you may not think that you will be able to modernize it the way that you want. However, simply repainting your cabinets can make a big difference in your kitchen decor.

Using a bold color like red, lime green, orange, or even alternating black and white cabinets can take your kitchen from looking traditional to sleek, bold, and modern. You could also opt for patterns. The cabinet door panels (the main, center part of the cabinet door) can be painted in a fun and bold pattern. This could be polka dots, stripes, a chevron pattern, swirls, waves, or any other design that you can think of.

This is a kitchen cabinet modernization project that you can do yourself with some time and effort. You will need to sand down and prime your kitchen cabinets before you can paint them. But if you stick with it, you can have your cabinets completely repainted in a few days.

Install Floating Cabinets

If you are looking to change up the look of your kitchen entirely, you may want to do away with those clunky traditional kitchen cabinets. Floating kitchen cabinets are named as such because they are wall cabinets without the accompanying floor cabinets and countertops.

To make these cabinets especially modern, you can have them installed in non-standard geometric shapes like pixels in a digital photograph or Tetris pieces that fit together. Of course, using bright colors on these cabinets and painting each one a different color can help you to further make these cabinets unique.

Floating cabinets will increase your floor space in your kitchen and make the space feel futuristic and unique at the same time. Because floating cabinets, particularly if they are designed in unique geometric shapes, will need to be custom built, you will probably want to hire a professional carpenter or cabinetry expert to build and install them for you. That way, you can be sure that the design is precise and the cabinets are securely installed.

Now that you have a few ideas of how to make your kitchen cabinets more unique and modern, you can get started on your remodeling project as soon as possible. For assistance, talk to a professional like Olson Cabinets & Woodworking Inc.
