How to Upgrade Your German Kitchen Cabinets

Are you looking to upgrade the look of your German kitchen cabinets? There may be a way to do it without totally replacing everything. This will save you lots of money and create the illusion of brand-new kitchen cabinets. The German kitchen design experts at Bauformat have compiled this list of DIY tips and kitchen makeover ideas you can use at home:

Paint Kitchen Cabinets

Are your cabinets looking a little rough or are they too dark for your current taste? You can brighten up your kitchen and make the whole space look bigger if you paint your existing cabinetry.

They can easily be sanded, painted and refinished to meet your expectations, all in a little weekend project.

Choose High Gloss Finish

Need painted cabinet ideas? Choosing a high-gloss finish works two ways: First of all, it protects your cabinets and the paint job from getting scratched or too dirty — high gloss also makes cleanup a breeze.

Second of all, that shiny, high gloss finish can give your cabinets a look that makes them appear to be glass or acrylic, which lends itself well to the modern aesthetics of German kitchen design.

Reface Cabinets

If the cabinet doors are a little too far gone for painting, you could consider refacing them instead. It’s still a lot cheaper than installing all-new cabinetry. Just replacing the doors or adding a new veneer to your existing ones can make a world of difference.

There are simple stick-on veneers you can buy from your local hardware store. Or you could have a custom kitchen contractor like Bauformat manufacture the perfect veneers that match your kitchen and suit your personal design choices.

Install Pull-Out Cabinet Shelf

If there’s an avalanche of canned goods and cooking tools falling out of your cabinet, then you need to consider custom storage solutions for your kitchen.

The professional kitchen contractors at Bauformat can help you design and install a pull-out cabinet shelf that helps you maximize the efficiency of your storage and makes everything more accessible than ever before.

Create Storage with More Kitchen Cabinets

If you have empty wall space in your kitchen, you may want to consider installing additional kitchen cabinets. With today’s advancements in cabinet building technology, it’s never been faster and easier for talented contractors such as Bauformat to make beautiful custom cabinets for your kitchen.

Our experts will provide a masterful installation where everything operates flawlessly to give you the dream kitchen experience that you deserve.
