A Simple Kitchen Upgrade You Can Start and Finish This Weekend | Schlage
Does your kitchen decor need a refresh? Don't let your walls and cabinets have all the fun when our favorite home accessory - your doors - is begging for attention. If you have a pantry or exterior entrance in your kitchen, here are a few inspiring ways you can take a blank canvas and create something impressive without breaking the bank.

1. Paint Your Doors a Surprising Color

There's no rule that says your doors can't be fun. If your kitchen features a neutral color palette, step outside your comfort zone and choose a bold color for your pantry or exterior door. Finish it off with crisp white trim and matte black hardware to make it pop even more.

2. Create A Chalkboard

Because you use your doors several times throughout the day, why not make them even more functional? Let your family know what's on the menu for the week, track your shopping list or leave an encouraging note for the ones you love before they go about their day. You can pull this look off with ease with a small can of chalkboard paint or even chalkboard contact paper from any hobby store.

3. Give It a Vintage Flair

If you enjoy entertaining and have an eclectic style, consider re-purposing an old exterior door to add interest. Accessories that have a story of their own ensure there's never a dull moment in the conversation.

4. Add Frosted Glass

For a sleek, contemporary look you'll enjoy for years to come, add frosted glass to your pantry door. Allowing some natural light adds warmth to your space. If you already have a door with glass, creating the frosted look can be done with just a few simple steps.
