Purchasing a new kitchen is extremely costly these days. It costs thousands just to get the sideboard in place, let alone the cabinets and the drawers. However, the latter two are absolutely essential because they provide the storage space you need for all your cookery utensils, crockery and other items relevant to the role of your kitchen within your home. However, you can save money and exercise your DIY skills by building kitchen drawers and cabinets yourself.
If you want your bathroom or kitchen to have a new, elegant look you will want to install a glass tile backsplash.
Not only does installing a glass tile backsplash help to add character to the style of the room, but it will also be a great weekend project for the do it yourself homeowner. This project will take about a weekend to complete.
The Materials You Need
DIY kitchen cabinet staining is the perfect way to update the look and feel of your kitchen without getting a complete kitchen remodel. Many people find that changing the look of their kitchen cabinets, adding a few other details, and using the best features of the kitchen that are already present can make it look like a new room.
Materials That You Need
Before you get started, you will want to gather up all of the tools and materials that you will need to complete the project. You will need painter’s tape, paint brushes, a sander, new hardware, a drill, and stain. You can also use paint instead of stain, depending on what kind of look you are going for.
Preparing the Cabinets
If you are considering updating the current look of your kitchen, an easy and interesting way to change the style is by restaining wood cabinets. Restaining wood cabinets does not cost a great deal of money and does not take a great deal of time to complete if the homeowner follows some simple tips and tricks for restaining cabinets. The result will be cabinets with a completely new look that can completely change the decor of your kitchen.
Regardless of the material your countertops are made of a wooden backsplash will create a real homely feel to your kitchen. If you’ve got solid wood countertops having matching wood backsplashes will really make the kitchen look complete, compared to having tiles abruptly appearing on top of the countertop.
Woods Used as Wooden Backsplash
While you could have a wooden backsplash made out of plywood or softwood, using a hardwood will both look better and last longer. Three woods in particular are popular for making countertop backsplashes: Maple, Cedar and Oak.
