How to Cover Kitchen Cabinets


Replacing your kitchen cabinets can be expensive, which may mean that it would be beyond the capacity of your budget. However, if you cover your kitchen cabinets, you can save money. Refacing cabinets means adding new doors and sprucing up the framework that holds them. It can cost less than half the price of new cabinets.

Things You'll Need

  • Fabric (amount depends on the number of cabinet doors)
  • Screwdriver
  • Tailor's chalk (optional)
  • Scissors
  • Craft push pins
  • Hammer
  • Measure your cabinet door faces and add two inches to all the measurements for seam allowance. Multiply the number of cabinet doors to determine the amount of fabric needed. The fabric that would work best for this project would be upholstery fabric because it would be durable enough to withstand the stress of being stretched across the cabinet doors.

  • Remove the cabinet doors from the cabinets. Make sure you keep track of all of the screws and fasteners for each door.

  • Lay the cabinet door face down on the wrong side of the fabric. Trace around it and add two inches for seam allowance. Cut out the fabric.

  • Fold down the fabric over the cabinet door and secure it in place with craft push pins. Do the corners first, stretching and smoothing the fabric as you go. Work your way around the cabinet door, securing the fabric in place.

  • Poke holes in the side of the cabinet doors where the holes for the screws are located. Reinstall the cabinet doors.
