If the kitchen is the heart of your home, the cabinets are most definitely the eyes. Your kitchen is a place to gather and where you prepare the meals that nourish your family and guests. Unlike most other rooms in your home, a simple coat of paint or some new decorations does little to spruce up your kitchen. While you could completely remodel your kitchen, complete with new countertops and backsplash an easier way to give your kitchen a facelift is with new cabinets, focusing on a new look in the doors. Join us in today’s post as we discuss a few simple ways that you can makeover your kitchen space with new cabinetry.

At Tharp Custom Cabinetry, we custom design and hand make cabinets and shelves for every need. If you built or purchased your home with prefabricated cabinets, we can help by completely rebuilding your cabinetry to improve the look and feel in any room of your home.

Upgrade Your Kitchen With New Cabinets: A Focus on Doors

At Tharp Custom Cabinetry, we have been building custom cabinets for homebuilders and homeowners across the Front Range for nearly 50 years. Over that time, we have seen many styles come and go and have hired an amazing design team that can create custom looks for every kitchen. We believe that no two kitchens should look or function alike and the cabinets within the kitchen should be as unique as the families who use them. Here are just a few of our favorite ways to provide a new look to the same old kitchen.


Upgrade Cabinet Wood

We have seen it too many times, prefabricated cabinets made with the cheapest materials available. Over time, especially in the kitchen, low-quality wood tends to warp and show signs of poor craftsmanship that manufactured and installed the cabinetry. A simple fix that will not only look incredible, but will stand the test of time in terms of performance, is upgrading the wood by replacing your cabinets with locally sourced wood cabinets. The Tharp designers would be more than happy to completely custom build new kitchen cabinets. To help improve the look and function of your cabinetry, you can opt to upgrade the quality of the wood used. Check out all our premium cabinet woods to find the inspiration you need.


Refinish the Face of the Doors

If you love the design of your current cabintry, we can custom build new ones with high-quality wood, but provide an updated finish that complements your current style. Finishes have come a long way in the last few decades and there is a good chance that finishing options are much more plentiful than when your current cabinets were installed. Check out all of our finishing options online to see if there is something that better suits your current motif.


Ditch the Doors Altogether

Another current trending popular option is to ditch the cabinet doors altogether. We love this option for opening the space and optimizing kitchen lighting. Of course, to create a kitchen design that allows for open shelving or doorless cabinets, this requires quite a bit of organization and display skills on the part of the homeowner. We believe that the doorless option works best for those with fine china collections and those homes that feature collectible glasses and entertain ware. We offer a ton of custom cabinetry ideas and designs that can combine doorless options with customized storage cabinets for all the things you don’t need on display. Visit our online kitchen cabinet gallery to see all of your options or stop by our Loveland showroom for more inspiration.

Glass-front Cabinets

Another popular option that isn’t quite as daring, but looks just as great, as doorless cabinet doors are glass. Tempered or frosted glass cabinet doors can open up kitchen space and optimize lighting while keeping dishes free from dust and out of direct view of guests. Glass-front cabinetry offers an air of elegance to any room and creates an ambiance you are sure to love. Transform nearly any cabinet door to a glass-front cabinet door or trade-up for new glass-front cabinetry from Tharp.

The designers and cabinet makers at Tharp can create a custom cabinet look that matches your personality and design aesthetic.

We are more than happy to build what you need and rebuild as you remodel.
