5 Ways to Repurpose Kitchen Cabinets

Share |

Old kitche cabinets can always be revived with a coat or two of fresh paint but when you want an entirely new design they just might have to be disassembled and binned. Only you can do so much more with them. Upcycling old kitchen cabinets can be as fun and useful as choosing new ones.

Kitchen Cabinet Upcycling Ideas

Repurposed kitchen cabinets

Laundry Room Cabinet

One of two or maybe even more (depending on how much free space you have) could be utilized as laundry cabinets for storing detergents, conditioners, and other household cleaning supplies. Give them a fresh coat of whatever paint color suits your laundry room or closet and voila all those bottles and jars stored safely away from children and just where you need them.

Kid’s Table

This is a great idea for parents whose kids aren’t yet at school. The opening lid allows to store all the paper and crayons inside the table making sure the mess is contained. It is a great opportunity to prepare them for school too.


Remove the doors and add the legs and you’ll get nice small shelving units to place in the living room corner beside your reading nook.

Window Seat

A chain of cabinets could be reused as a window seat if the cabinets are sturdy enough. All you’ll need to do is to add some padding and cushions. Plus you’ll have additional space storage for seasonal clothes or maybe some wine.

Living Room Console

You can turn the old kitchen cabinets into a living room console using the same principle. Add little legs to them to ensure the doors open smoothly and store your movie or book collection there. How did you reuse your old kitchen cabinets?
