Kitchen / September 15, 2018 / Addison Smith.
Planning a dream kitchen and facing reality can be two different things. In a perfect world we could have endless pantry storage at our fingertips, but sometimes fitting a pantry into the kitchen (or elsewhere in the home) takes some compromising — or at least a little creativity.
It may not always be practical or affordable to rebuild the cabinets in a kitchen or bathroom. Or you may like your cabinets, but they just need a refresh. Refacing them might be the best solution. But what does refacing involve? As with most construction projects, the answer depends on lots of details.
Disadvantages: Keep your cutting boards handy, as knives can wreak havoc on the melamine finish. And trivets should be used with hot pans, as the lamination is heat resistant to just 150 degrees.
A few open shelves on one wall will perfectly hold daily-use tableware, storage jars and bins, and cookbooks, and give the room a much more open feel. It can also give a beautiful window a little more space to breathe so the whole room feels less stuffed.
