Hello, my name is John Galbraith, and today we're going to be talking about replacing kitchen cabinet doors. Replacing the kitchen cabinet doors is a very cost-effective way of really sprucing up your kitchen, because you can leave the cabinets just the way they are. One of the main things to consider is the type of hinges you're going to use, because different cabinets require different configurations of hinges. Nowadays, the most common hinges is what's called a Euro hinge, which is basically invisible when the door is closed. Again, there are different types of those hinges to use depending on the shape of your cabinet. But doing this, all you have to do is measure your existing doors, and then go to the supplier and give him those measurements and choose the design of door that you like and they'll make them for you, just to fit. And then, I would recommend that you get a professional to install them. These are your carpenter or cabinet maker. The result is a very inexpensive way of making your house look, making your kitchen look almost new again. I'm John Galbraith, and in this segment we've been talking about installing new kitchen cabinet doors.
