Kitchen Tips and Ideas


Several different methods are available from Leinster Woodcraft for those of you who would like to create a new look in your kitchen and at great discounts for 2009.  You can create the entire room over by gutting it and starting completely new from the appliances to the flooring to the wallpaper to the kitchen sink.  You can take the easy route and simply change a few of the essentials like kitchen towels, kitchen faucets, the lighting, the toaster, canister set, and kitchen clock.  Alternatively, you can upgrade many of the features of your custom made kitchen to create a brand new kitchen look without gutting the room.


Upgrading Your Kitchen


It is very important to plan your kitchen before you go out and buy something on impulse. Custom Oak Kitchens have been very popular for many decades and will remain so for many decades to come. There are a range of Oaks to choose from like Pippy Oak, American Oak, Irish Oak and White Oak and by electing to go with a custom kitchen you won’t be disappointed.


Upgrading your kitchen without gutting it is a good choice for many reasons including:

  • It is less expensive than redoing the entire room from floor to ceiling and with the kitchen discounts available its very affordable.

  • It creates a bigger change and a newer look than simply replacing a few of the non-fixed items. 

  • It is a lot of fun to do and all the family can get involve.

  • It incresase the value of your kitchen to a great degree.

Kitchen Themes;


The first thing that you need to do when creating a brand new custom made kitchen look is to select a theme.  Your theme can be quite specific or general in nature.  You can select a theme that leans toward a particular feel such as contemporary, southwestern, French Provincial, or country, for example.  Your theme can simply encompass a particular subject matter including flowers, fruits, animals, ivy, birds, or whatever it is that you have a preference for.

 Once you select your theme, compose a list of all of the items that you want to replace.  Although it is easier to compose the list by grouping similar items together, you can use any system that works for you.  You can break the list down into two separate categories- functional and decorative.  Examples of the items that you will find in both lists are included below.  Some of the items can actually be placed in both categories.  Therefore, the selected list might not be the one that you would personally list them on.  However, if the visual appeal of the particular item outweighs its functionality for me, I selected the decorative list for it.

Custom Made Kitchen Look Fantastic

It isn’t necessary to change all of the items on the above lists to create your new kitchen look.  However, the more items that you change, the more unique the look will appear to you and to everyone who frequents your home.  In fact, the more prominent the item is in your kitchen, the more likely it is that changing it will make a lasting difference.

 Upgrading the hardware for your kitchen cabinets will give them a brighter appearance in most instances.  Over time, the hardware tends to lose its shine and luster.  While you are changing the hardware, it is an excellent time to also upgrade the cabinet doors by giving them a thorough cleaning and a facelift with a new stain.

 It is relatively easy to coordinate all of your new items with the same theme since so many stores and online sites sell kitchen items.  It isn’t necessary to do all of your shopping at the same location either, although it probably will make it easier.  In fact, take the time to shop around and see what is available before actually making your purchases.  Next, begin to make your purchases attempting to shop for similar items at the same time so that you can match colors and patterns more readily.

Leinster Woodcraft  listen to your suggestions and heed your requirements and help to satisfy those needs at a realistic cost.
