How To Easily Remove The Doors On Your Kitchen Cabinets For Open Shelving

Turning your existing kitchen cabinets into open shelving may seem like a daunting task if you’re unfamiliar with handiwork, but it’s really quite simple. As DIY blog Dream Green DIY explains, start out by carefully taking out the doors of the cabinets you would like to have open.

Most kitchen cabinet doors are usually fastened with a hinge, so you just need to unscrew those hinges and your doors should come right off. Dream Green DIY recommends keeping the removed doors in storage because you never know if you might need them (or go back to your closed cabinets).

Next, get rid of any old shelf lining that might remain. If your shelves are bare, you can, of course, skip this step, and proceed to give the inside of your brand new shelf/shelves a good clean with a suitable cleaning product, and you’re good to go.

You can stop there and start filling your open shelves, but as Sherwin-Williams suggests, you could also smooth them with sandpaper and paint the insides for an elevated look.
