Materials and Tools:
To get the most for your money in a kitchen update, concentrate on well-chosen visual elements.
Update the old sink with a professional-style, single-lever faucet.
For easy installation, make sure the new faucet stem matches the old faucet hole.
Instead of buying new cabinets, replace the old doors and drawer fronts. Trade out the old cabinet hardware for new.
A glass-fronted cabinet lit from within can focus design.
Start by removing the old shelves.
Measure the shelves to determine the exact size. Get a glass company to cut new glass shelves.
Tip: The thicker the glass, the heavier the load it will support.
The standard is 3/8 inch. Edges can be penciled, flat, beveled, waved, glossy, polished or satin.
Install clear shelf supports.
Slip the shelving into place. For safety, wear gloves when handling glass.
LED lights do not require wiring. Install LED lights inside cabinet top.
