Building Kitchen Cabinet Doors

Kitchen cabinet doors get a lot of use yet get very little recognition or respect. Indeed, the only time they get any notice is when they fail to operate properly.

You might have a need to be building kitchen cabinet doors because the old ones have run their course and are ready to retire or perhaps you are installing brand new cabinets and just need to put the finishing touches on them.

Getting Started on the Right Foot

The first thing to consider if you are going for a natural (varnish, polyurethane, or tung oil) finish is that the cabinet doors have to match the cabinets themselves. Well, ok, you might want them to be different, but if so, they need to be consistently different and portray a common theme.

Do-It-Yourself Backsplash Options

While some people will settle for painting or wallpapering their backsplash, this simple and very low cost method is generally not recommended for kitchen renovations – wallpaper will stain easily and wear down over time, and even just leaving paint as a backsplash will sooner or later start looking like an aged cutting board, only with more water spots, darker stains, and less kitsch value. Instead, why not choose one of these easy, do-it-yourself backsplash options?
