There are lots of reasons why you may want to update the drawers and doors within your home. The problem often is simply finding the time to. Luckily, there are numerous ways you can go about touching up the hardware without taking up too much of your valuable time. If you’re interested in sprucing up some areas around your home that aren’t as appealing as they once were, all it takes is a few simple tweaks. For example, have you thought about a paint job? What about replacing some of the hardware? Some of these changes only take a matter of minutes, and they can have a phenomenal impact on the look and feel of your personal space. When considering ways to freshen up your space, consider putting some of the following tips to use:

 

  • Switch Out Your Hardware:
    Simply switching out the handles on your doors will allow you to change the look of your drawers in minutes. Typically, it takes no more than a few minutes to switch out old knobs or handles as long as you have a reliable screwdriver. Find some knobs that you think would work well with your drawer and replace them for the old ones. It may not sound like it makes a big difference, but once you make the switch you’ll understand how big of an impact it can really have.
  • Repaint Doors:
    Another way you can revitalize certain doors is by giving them a paint job. Painting your doors a certain color can have a profound impact on the feel of your room. Take a good look at a few colors that you could see helping make the rooms in your home more dynamic. Since you aren’t painting the entire home, it won’t take as much time. You should be able to get a door painted in your room in less than an hour easily. Just make sure you select a color that you know for a fact has the look that you’re going for.
  • Give Your Drawers a Thorough Cleaning:
    If you haven’t given your cabinets a good, complete cleaning that could be all it takes for you to give your cabinets the breath of new life that you’ve been searching for. Giving your cabinets an effective cleaning will allow for you to see your cabinets in a way you haven’t been able to ever since you first moved into your home. The process isn’t too time consuming either. Washing cabinets could have a bigger impact on their well being than you could have ever imagined.
  • Consider Adding a Trim of Paint to Your Drawer:
    If you have a drawer with a solid drawer, adding the perfect trim of paint can have an incredible impact. Similarly to painting closet doors around the house, you should probably find more than one color that you think suits the drawer well. After you find the color (or colors) you’d like to go with, it won’t take more than a few minutes to add the accent. A little paint can go a long way. Doing some research on color schemes that look good on drawers will give you some inspiration that you may not have had previously, too. There’s a number of different directions you can take when it comes to adding an accent to your drawers. Don’t be afraid to get creative!
