This is the third post for the Kitchen Mini Makeover series. The Kitchen Mini Makeover topic aims to help you to have a low-cost but high impact makeover tricks on your kitchen. On previous posts on Kitchen Mini Makeover, I have discussed about the lighting effect on the kitchen and the floor redo. On this post we will discuss about perking up your cabinets. We will help you spice up those boring and bland cabinets.

Mini Makeover Trick: For a fresh look, spending as little as few dollars, replace cabinet knobs, drawer pulls, and hinges, if they show.

What To Buy: Understated metals such as stainless steel and brushed nickel are in. So swap out your cabinets to date.
If you’ve got cabinets with no hardware, add some knobs or pulls. Just make sure that they are coordinated with the style of your cabinet or drawer. As a rule, the more contemporary the cabinet, the simpler and sleeker the hardware should be. A traditional cabinet goes well with vintage-style hardware. For more beautiful effect, try installing light-reflecting glass knobs on the upper unit and metals on the bases. Ceramic knobs can look pretty with anything. You can include some cute knobs, like apple-shaped knobs or chili pepper pulls, but use them sparingly. Reserved them on special piece, like a hutch.

Tip: Try knobs before buying them. Pick out three favorites, purchase on of each, screw them into your cabinets, and live with them before you commit.

Cost: You can spice up your cabinet hardware for a little as a few dollars, depending on the style and materials chosen.
