How To: DIY Modern Kitchen Cabinet Remodel | Update Cabinets on a Budget

Today on Modern Builds I’m transforming some old, outdated kitchen cabinets into modern, slab-style cabinets. This is a simple DIY project that is great for weekend (or two) project.

Obviously a sink is getting installed. It was ordered online and has since been installed. There’s a picture on my Instagram @modernbuilds if you’re interested in checking it out.

  • Euro Hinge are great…unless you have kids that play with the doors. Then it is really easy to permanently misalign them.

  • Hopefully this isn't a dumb question… is it really necessary to put it all together with the hardware and all, then take it all back apart to paint it, and then reassemble? It seems like a lot of extra work.

  • Add a backsplash. It would really look much better with a backsplash.

  • I'm thinking about doing this for my moms kitchen! Only thing is I know MDF isn't too strong so idk if I should use it. Do you think a harder plywood is better? If not what wood should I use but also on a low budget? Hope someone can help as I plan to remodel her kitchen on a budget in July! Thanks

  • Hi it is very nice and good work. It would be best idea to mention the tools needed for the project at the first. It will be much helping for everyone to do the similar project at their own home. Thanks
