Updating formica cabinets
RMS user mypointofview updates her linoleum floors by painting an elegant black-and-cream pattern.
With laminate or wood veneers laid over the existing cabinet boxes, you can change the style, color, wood type—even the associated historical era.
This can completely alter the look and feel of your entire kitchen.
Many kitchen cabinet doors are made out of Formica.
A little over a year ago we had new laminate countertops installed in our kitchen.
I’ve had some questions about how they’re holding up so I figured I’d do an update on our Formica Argento Romano laminate countertops. The major reason was because we live in a starter home neighborhood.
I’m guessing 95% of the houses in our neighborhood have laminate countertops.
Those light, bright oak cabinets can become the regal dark of cherry wood, and vice versa.
Within days your kitchen can take on the look of a complete renovation without the hassle, cost, mess and inconvenience of a full remodel.
Though you keep the existing cabinet boxes, you will need to replace the doors, drawer faces and side panels for the best overall match.
The countertops have held up amazingly well over the past year. If I spilled a little red wine or dropped some grape jelly on our old laminate countertops, it would take a couple days for the stains to come out.
But with our new countertops, everything wipes up with no trace of a stain.
