Before deciding on a particular cabinet design you have to make sure on what type of material the cabinets were made. Mostly the cabinets will be made up of woods and the types would be Pine, Cherry, and Oak, Maple, Adler and some few to name it. Oak wood will be the suitable wood as it was heaviest and much hard. To give the cabinets an antique look woods like Alder is used and it was a cheapest one. Pine woods are a softer one and are used rarely according to its characteristics.
If you are like me, you are probably thinking that you need more than kitchen cabinet plans and that you must be a pro to build kitchen cabinet. That is what I thaught too. I was a little intimidated by the idea, but I realised that I was wrong and it was not that complicated.
Cabinet refinishing is usually the cheapest way to change the look of your cabinets, but in order for this to work correctly, your existing doors, drawers and structure of the cabinets need to be in good condition. The doors and drawers are removed and everything is sanded down. A new paint or stain is applied to everything and new hardware is typically added to further refresh the look. You can do this on your own, though some homeowners do choose to hire a professional to handle it. A professional company that does this type of home improvement job on a regular basis will have a good idea if your cupboards are in good enough shape to handle sanding and repainting or restaining. Also, if you are planning on replacing laminate countertops with a solid surface such as marble or granite, make sure your cupboards are strong enough to handle the additional weight. If they are not strong enough, you may need to consider replacing them, going with a lighter weight countertop, or reinforcing the countertop with decorative brackets.
