Some times all you need to revamp an entire wardrobe is a new jacket. Not only can it give you a warm feeling, but it will change the way you face the world, be easy on the budget, and let you keep favorite outfits you have come to love.
The analogy may be just a bit of a stretch, but the concept is valid when you consider a kitchen remodel. If your kitchen works the way you want it to in terms of storage space and layout, resurfacing the cabinets offers a chance for a totally new perspective without a full overhaul.
Styles change over time, but if you have quality cabinets underneath, it can be relatively easy to give them a new look on the outside. By freshening up the door styles, changing hinges and adding new hardware, refacing will add new life, glamour and appeal to your existing kitchen. You can go from dowdy to designer in no time. Homeowners often go a step further by choosing new countertop and backsplash material, and updating flooring and lighting to achieve a total transformation. New appliances might be a part of the package, and we’ll help you select the best models for your needs.
If your kitchen cabinets are damaged or poor quality, they are probably not the best candidates for this kind of cosmetic redo, but if the underlying structure is sturdy and the layout is efficient, you will be pleased with the results.
Choose simple shaker-style doors in natural to dark maple, cherry or alder finish for an efficient, updated look. Opt for smooth laminate doors if you envision a modern, Euro-style kitchen filled with stainless appliances and sleek surfaces. Go from dark to dramatic with painted finishes, or mix it up with a kitchen island in a different color or a contrasting wood.
Install glass doors in selected upper cabinets to highlight collections. Our designers can also help you add convenience features like pull outs, recycling units and dividers to improve functionality.
