6_10KitchenAs your Columbus, Ohio general contractors we feel it is important to not only share information on major home remodels, room additions, or bathroom remodels…but also on the minor home renovations that can have a big impact.

One of the best rooms to do a “makeover” on is the kitchen, notably the cabinets! The kitchen is now the command center, dining area, and the one room in the home where families spend the most time together. If you’re looking for a way to liven up the room, and an overhaul isn’t in the budget, try one of these easy kitchen cabinet upgrades.

Fresh Paint

Your dreary kitchen feels that way because the dark cabinets have sucked all the light out of the room. But a makeover doesn’t necessarily mean replacing the cabinets with all-new ones. As long as the frames and doors are structurally sound, you can clean them up and brush on a fresh coat of paint—and within a weekend take that kitchen from dreary to sunny!


Sometimes your cabinet faces have too much wear and tear to save via painting.

We’re not saying you must gut and rebuild. Instead of spending, a lot of money on new cabinets, save some cash and reface the ones you have for drastically less! It’s amazing what a little veneer and some new doors can do to brighten an aging space.


There’s a missing element in most kitchens, it’s simply good lighting. The hidden fixtures of under cabinet task lighting, which are fairly easy to retrofit beneath upper wall cabinets, provide the countertop with bright white light. If you connect the fixtures to a dimmer switch you now have dramatic accent lighting.

Crown Molding

Nothing says custom and decadence like crown molding. The trim transforms your kitchen storage into a seamless design, and really completes a space, you won’t believe what a difference this makes to your space.
