When looking to update existing cabinet door fronts without major costs, keep in mind that glossy black and glossy white paint instantly modernize almost any style door front, resulting in a much newer look. In order to properly refinish old cabinet door fronts, first, remove them from the casing, marking the back of each door front and the inside of the cabinet with painter's tape marked with coordinating numbers. Next, remove the existing finish with fine-grit sandpaper and wipe away dust with a damp cloth. Add an even coat of primer to the front and back of each door front as well as the fascia of the cabinet casing. Lastly, use a professional-grade, two- or three-inch angled brush to apply two coats of a high-gloss latex paint, as well as a clear coat of polyurethane. Keep the space well-ventilated for 24 to 48 hours to allow fumes to subside.
Asian-Inspired Master Bathroom with Purple Accent Wall
This contemporary master bathroom has an Asian aesthetic with screened doors and bamboo accents. Black tile lines the shower, and stainless steel accents are apparent throughout the space. A splash of purple on the vanity wall provides a hint of color in the otherwise neutral space.
A moody color palette and industrial accents are used to echo the looks of New York City buildings in the master bathroom of an Atlanta townhome. High-gloss subway tile reflect the stylish lighting. LED lights on the mirrored medicine cabinet evoke the look of neon signs.
