3 Ways To Customize Your Kitchen Cabinets


If you are sick of the way your cabinets look, or if you just moved into an older home and would like to update and add some personalization to the cabinets in it, there are so many things that you can do this. There are many affordable options for customizing your cabinets, as well as some that are a bit more expensive. Both, however, can really help you to create some kitchen cabinets that you will love. This article will discuss 3 ways to customize your kitchen cabinets. 

Install Undercabinet Lighting 

A fun personalization to add to your kitchen cabinets is going to be under-cabinet lighting. This type of lighting is perfect for highlighting your backsplash if you have one, as well as the decor on your kitchen cabinets. The lights are also great for simply adding some more light to your kitchen because this is a room where you can never seem to have enough light. If you want to get really creative, you can incorporate different colored bulbs into your cabinet lighting to add a pop of color to your kitchen. This lighting can either be installed on your own with a simple knowledge of electrical work, if you would like to save money, or you can hire a professional to install the under-cabinet lighting for you. 

Add A Plate Shelf

If you want to make your kitchen cabinets more unique, you can add what is called a plate shelf to them. This is a shelf that is located between two normal cabinets that has vertical pieces of wood separating a square cabinet box. Plates are meant to be placed in between each of the vertical pieces of wood. This is a great location for you to put your decorative plates because they will be seen through the front of the cabinet box. To install this plate shelf is quite simple, and it can be done without too much cost or effort. 

Add Crown Molding 

A more pricey, but beautiful customization to add to your kitchen cabinets is going to be crown molding. This crown molding can be custom made to go along the top of all of your cabinets and it will give them a look of timeless beauty that is otherwise unachievable. The crown molding can also help to make your kitchen ceilings look taller, making your kitchen look open and larger, because the kitchen cabinets go from the top of the cabinets to your ceiling.

Construction Needs in Times of Disaster

I live in the middle of the desert, so I never thought that flooding would be a problem. However, a few months ago my town was hit with a huge storm. These freak storms are called "Hundred Year Storm" because the chances of them happening are once in a hundred years. Needless to say, no one was prepared for the aftermath--especially not the city sewage system. All this extra water had no where to go, and suddenly, I found my basement flooded. It wasn't a fun experience, but we dealt with it the best we could. Since then, I have spent a lot of time looking into different options for sewage, water lines, and other related things. We're now even looking into building a new house. This blog is the result of my ongoing research.
