In the 60s and 70s cavernous lower cabinetry with lots of wasted space was the trend. A great way to regain and expand lost space is to convert lower cabinets to drawers. Not limited to pull-outs, but real drawers.
Paying attention to the overall color of the kitchen will also help bring back the original spacious look of the kitchen. If you have light colored cabinets, walls and a backsplash then the room will feel larger and open. But if the color of the cabinets, and room is a darker tone then it will feel more compact.
It’s important to find a wood species that meets your style and needs. Before starting a cabinet reface always consider the species, color, and grain of the wood.
Some examples of hard wood are hickory, maple, cherry, oak, and birch. Softwood species include pine and cedar. Start by choosing one of these types.
Once the classification of the wood is chosen, next is the color of the wood. It is important to remember that there are different natural color variations in wood, even if the wood is cut from the same tree. Color is important to fit your style, but remember that stain can always be used if there is a type of wood that does not come in a color you wish to have.
The grain of the wood refers to the texture and different patterns that are naturally found in wood. No two cuts of wood will have the same grain, so try to keep all wood used as similar as possible. Some of the different types of grain that you may get to choose from are: fine, straight, cross, spiral, wavy, curly, and arch.
