Below we will share some of the queries with you in the hope that you will find the answers to your questions as well.
- Q: With our house being about 40 years old, we would like to give the kitchen a facelift, but wouldn’t want to replace the kitchen cupboards as they are made from solid dark wood. How could i re-do the cabinets without having to replace them?
A: One of the less expensive ways to go about it will be to re-face the cabinets which will be the process of applying a wood veneer to the cupboards to give them a whole new look. This will be especially good if you want to change the colour of the cabinets to a lighter colour. Alternatively you could just sand the cabinets off and cover with a layer of varnish for a new look.
- Q: Will this be easy enough for me to do myself?
A: If you have a high level of knowledge on DIY kitchen cupboards, you will be able to do it yourself, alternatively you could ask for the assistance of any Timbercity Vaal branch in your area. We are one of the biggest DIY kitchen cupboard suppliers in the Vaal Triangle and have the expertise to match.
Steps Involved to re-do your kitchen cupboards:
- You would firstly have to wash down the cupboards with a product called Tri-Sodium Phosphate which will remove any grease and dirt.
- Kitchen cupboards need to be removed including all screws and hinges.
- All other areas like the floor and appliances should then be covered to prevent damage.
- Sand down and prime your DIY kitchen cupboards with either a wood stain or a primer with a colour of your choice.
- You would then need to protect your kitchen cupboards with a layer of enamel. This will give it resistance against water and grime.
