Can I Mix New Kitchen Cabinets with My Old Ones?

Yes, there is a way to mix old and new kitchen cabinets in your home. To achieve this look, you’ll need to plan ahead and consider a few details. At Express Cabinet and Granite, we’ve put together a guide to help you easily blend your current kitchen cabinets with some new ones!

Choose Which Cabinets You Want to Keep

First, decide which cabinets will be replaced and which will stay in place. If the existing cabinets are still of good quality, you may choose to keep them and add new ones to complement the current style. This is an effective way to decorate without completely redoing your kitchen space.

Consider the Size of the Current Kitchen Cabinets

Next, consider the size of your existing cabinets to determine which new ones you would need for a successful blend. Standard kitchen cabinet sizes are 12″, 15″, 18″, 24″, and 36″. If your current cabinets are larger or smaller than these standard sizes, you must find custom-sized cabinets to match up correctly with the existing ones.

Choose Your Cabinet Style Combination

When selecting cabinets, think about how different styles can be combined for a unique look. You may choose one type of cabinet for all your storage needs or combine two or three different styles to create a unique blend.
Consider the type of wood used to make each cabinet when mixing old and new cabinets. As long as they share a similar color, different types of wood can be paired together in your kitchen. Additionally, try to match the finishes of both sets – such as glossy or matte – so that it blends seamlessly.

Choose The Right Cabinet Hardware

Finally, think about the hardware used to complete the look. Choose knobs and handles that are cohesive with both sets of cabinets, such as round or square-shaped pulls in a metal finish that complements the color of the wood and other kitchen elements.

Should I Update My Countertops to Match My New Cabinets?

Updating your countertops to match your new cabinets is an excellent way to complete the look. Consider a stone surface such as quartz or granite, which offers a timeless and sophisticated touch.
