Mix Old and New Kitchen Cabinets in Style

Old and new

When you are on a tight budget and need to remodel your kitchen for additional storage, you may wonder if there is a way to do it in a cost-saving fashion. The good news is that there is a way to accomplish this goal by mixing your old kitchen cabinets with new ones. This dramatically reduces the cost of your remodel, but the trick is to mix old and new kitchen cabinets in a stylish manner, so that they do not clash with each other. We share some tips below on how to ensure that both types of cabinets blend together in an eye-catching manner.

Match Sizes Whenever Possible

When old and new cabinets are going to be side by side, it is best to match their sizes as much as possible. By doing so, you provide a sense of continuity. This makes it look like all of the cabinetry belongs together.

Coordinate the Colours of the Finishes

You can finish all of the cabinets in a similar coloured finish or you can place a contrasting colour on the new ones that complement the finish on the old ones in a pleasant way. Many possibilities exist for this. For example, if you add a work island that contains cabinets, you can give it a dark finish to contrast with your light-coloured existing cabinets.

Install the Same Style of Hardware on All of the Cabinets

Add matching hardware to all of the cabinets. This is another way to mix old and new kitchen cabinets in a stylish fashion. Whether you have a traditional, modern, contemporary or eclectic style of kitchen, you can find door handles and hinges that adhere to it.

Ensure That the New Countertops Complement the Old Ones

Do not forget to blend the countertops in a complementary way either by installing the same exact material and colour or by adding colours and materials that belong together. Examples of this is the same colour family of marble or add a dark shade of marble to complement the light shade of marble you may have at present or whatever material your countertops are made from in your present kitchen.
