How can I change the color on my kitchen cabinets?

I have dark-brown laminate kitchen cabinets. How can I change them to a lighter color?

There are a few different options. If your cabinet boxes are in good condition, the best and least expensive approace would be to replace the doors and drawer fronts. Or you could reface them with wood veneer, but working with contact cement takes great skill that is probably best left to a professional. For other ideas, see our slide show, Easy Updates for Kitchen Cabinets.
