We’re talking – one visit to the market, or a few clicks on eBay, Amazon, or Etsy.

Unless of course, you are picky about these things.

People have been using all sorts of wallpapers in their bedrooms, drawing rooms, dining rooms, and even their bathrooms!

So why not inside the cabinets too?

For one, they are cheap.

And second, there are a million designs that you can pick from. And if you’re creative, you can design one yourself too!

Cloth/print fabric

This one works well if you are looking for a little texture.

Unlike wallpapers, cloth/print fabric can give you a matt finish.

And again, they don’t cost as much so you can take on this project as many times as you want.

Here’s a tip, if you don’t feel like doing it to all of your cabinets, just pick one!

(This applies to all of these ideas!) No one’s judging. It is your sanctuary after all!

3D Sticker tiles 

Adhesive 3D sticker tiles come in a great variety of matt, colorful designs & patterns.

The artistic approach

We’re calling this the artistic approach because you have probably never heard about these being used for a cabinet interior!

But we assure you, you are going to get some quality head nods and head turns with these customizations.



Say what? Yes, mirrors.

Adding mirrors inside cabinets can give a really nice reflecting effect.

You can also add mirrors outside your cabinets instead of using glass.

But we only recommend doing this, if you have a very nice space. (Since whatever you have will be reflected, it better be something nice!)

Painting the insides of your cabinets is a simple way if you want an indifferent yet elegant look.

This one will work best if you have a lot going on in your kitchen.

If you have a neutral kitchen, go for a bold color and vice versa.

See-through cabinets

See-through cabinets however cute, only look good if you have something worth showing on the opposite side.

They look great if you have an outlooking garden.

(This is wild, but you can add astroturf / artificial grass if you don’t have a garden but still want see-through cabinets.)
