I am about to build raised panel cabinet doors and drawer fronts for our kitchen. We want to stain them a deep cherry colour. What is the best method to use after the final staining to protect the finish?

Polyurethane, either sprayed, brushed or hand rubbed. Make sure the stain is completely cured before sealing.

Lights are an integral part of your kitchen, as it is a place of constant activity and work. Also, since it is a common public area of the house, decorative lighting should be present here as well.

After finish all work den must be decorate your kitchen’s with lights.To start making plans about lights to install in your kitchen, you should first set up a budget. It is always good to know beforehand, as to how much you can afford on lighting your kitchen. This includes the cost of fixtures, cords, wires, lamps, bulbs, fitting charges etc. Then, plan a design to light up your kitchen. Each fixture should be placed at an appropriate distance. Also, make sure that no area is left dark and no place of the kitchen should be glaring with lights. One important factor to consider here is the area of the kitchen. Its dimensions and counters would play a deciding role in your kitchen lighting plan. Seek advice of an interior decorator or an architect if you are not sure about how to design this plan.

Thank you all…..............................................................

Raised panel doors are difficult to finish with a brush or a rag. The best finish will come from spraying. HVLP is the correct system for this because of low over-spray and high efficiency of paint transfer, using a 1.5mm needle. Poly or lacquer, either oil or water based would be good choices for your top coat. Apply multiple coats.

If you use Polyurethane as described above, after you get a clear coat or two look for some gel Polyurethane and thin a nice complimentary color. Not too thick; almost to where you dont even see it. It will help even out the stain and give the finish a richer feel. ;)

I have been using spar polyurethane a lot and I wonder if this would be good for a kitchen cabinet finish, especially around the sink, where things drip.

The idea is very nice, and I like the color choice. I think the polyurethane solution is probably your best bet.

Every day is a struggle for women because they have to remove their facial hair before stepping out. Some have opted for the permanent solution that is laser hair removal in Karachi. They all have complimented on how their lives have been so much easier due to no need for shaving and waxing.

Your kitchen is the most important part of your house. Your kitchen is a corner of your home, where you cook, dine, and socialize. In simple words, this is where you spend time with your family. Thus, if you plan kitchen facelift, you first need to consider how much you are willing to pay. In case you have a limited budget, you can follow the tips given below for kitchen remodeling within a budget.

Add Space without Knocking Down Walls
If you feel that the kitchen is all cramped up and you do not have enough money to knock down the walls, you should know that there are affordable means to make your kitchen appear larger. Some of the key tricks that you can follow are painted the cabinets, walls, and appliances with a lighter color. This will make space appear larger. Another effective way of making your kitchen appear larger is to add a decorative over-sized mirror to one wall. You can add more depth to the kitchen by adding some open-faced cabinets. Here, you can keep your decorative pieces and utensils. All you need to do is make sure that the open-faced cabinet doesn’t appear cluttered.

Make Small Changes with Bigger Impacts

Minor changes such as fresh dinnerware set, new faucet, or treating the windows can too change the entire vibe of your kitchen. You need to see these kinds of textures that would make you feel it and consider how they will appear in your kitchen. When you look for appliances, you should also do online research. However, you should know what you are looking for and the price range of an appliance.

Choose New Fixtures and Sinks

Sinks have turned out to be a fashion statement. If you have the most basic kitchen, you should opt for drop-in-sink. This is because it drops into the hole of the countertop. The installation of this sink is easy, but do not forget to take care of the faucet. You should upgrade and repair the faucets. If you have a few bucks, you can get an attractive faucet. You should make it a point to stick to one fixture finish all throughout the house as mixed finished might appear like patchwork.

Save Money on Knick Knacks

You do not need to go out and buy fake fruit, cookbooks, and decorative vases for kitchen facelift as this will eventually collect dust. You should rather opt for the bigger details and can use the ingredients inside the kitchen to enhance the kitchen and give it a fresh look. Fruits like bananas and apples look good on the counters, and you can use it to decorate the kitchen. Candy dishes, salt and pepper, and vinaigrette bottles are good to Knick knacks which can serve a double purpose. You can save money on the wall art simply by hanging a cutting board with a unique shape.

Benefits of Kitchen Remodeling

Kitchen Remodeling will make your kitchen look more pleasant but can also help in increasing its home value. Here are certain benefits that you can enjoy with kitchen facelift.

Benefits of Kitchen Facelift:
A kitchen renovation can improve the function of this space. For instance, adding more cabinets will provide more space for the kitchen.
If you upgrade the older kitchen appliances and get more energy-efficient models for reducing the amount of energy consumed by your kitchen.
When you upgrade the lights and appliances in the kitchen, it will help in making it Eco-friendlier.
Improper function of the kitchen might lead to some injuries and so you can avoid this by remodeling your kitchen.
However, if you are unable to do the planning all by yourself, you can take the help of an experienced professional.

Kitchen cabinets are the built-in furniture installed in many kitchens for storage of food, cooking equipment, and often silverware and dishes for table service. Appliances such as refrigerators, dishwashers, and ovens are often integrated into kitchen cabinetry.
