Tips for Homeowners on Kitchen and Bathroom Renovations

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, February 29, 2012

Spring is the time that many homeowners start to consider kitchen and bathroom renovations, but right now is the perfect time to consider these renovations.  Plumbers have better availability after the winter heating season and skilled workers are still available before the busy summer season. So when spring cleaning reveals older and worn cabinetry and vanities, call Cabinetry by Kenneth C. Lewis.

A full kitchen renovation can cost quite a bit of money based on a variety of details along with the condition of the existing plumbing and electric.  Kitchen upgrades and smaller renovations with a big effect can be done for much less.  Great ways to change the look of your kitchen on a tight budget could include replacing cabinet doors, counter-tops, hardware, flooring and painting to name a few.

Likewise, partial bathroom projects or smaller bathroom renovations with a "WOW" factor can be completed for much less than a full make-over.  Vanity refacing or refinishing, a new toilet and sink, or just a new faucet, and painting are a few suggestions.

For more cost effective kitchen and bath renovations, contact Cabinetry by Kenneth C. Lewis.

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, September 20, 2011

There are quite a few homes on the market. You need to be sure your home stands out in the crowd. You can do this with a kitchen remodel. There are few home renovations that are worth it when I comes to making your money back, and remodeling the kitchen is one of them.

Kitchen renovations will get you 75-80% return on your investment. But you don’t have to spend a lot to remodel your kitchen. If your kitchen cabinets are in good shape, don’t replace them; reface them.

Remodel the Kitchen without Remodeling the Kitchen

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, August 23, 2011

The kitchen is no longer just where you eat and store food. The kitchen is mom’s command center, the kitchen is where you gather with family and friends.

If you kitchen is feeling a little dated, but a total remodel is out of the budget, try a cabinet upgrade by refinishing, refacing, painting, or installing a kitchen island.

Cabinet refinishing is a great way to save some money and still have a beautiful or elite looking kitchen. The cost can be lower if your cabinets and doors are in good shape.  Decorative Possibilities for Your Cabinets are almost endless due to the fact that Kenneth C Lewis we use the most durable commercial grade lacquer on the market.  Many decorative effects can be achieved during any cabinet refinishing project with paint or stain.

You could also add lazy susan or pull-out shelves to your existing kitchen cabinets. Replace a door or two with a glass front or some other more modern style and change the entire look of your cabinets. New hardware is also changes the look of your cabinets and drawers.

Refacing Cabinets - An alternative to refinishing is refacing. Although cabinet refacing is cheaper than all new cabinets, it is still considerably more expensive than cabinet refinishing. Cabinet refacing involves the replacement of the door and drawer fronts (with new) plus installing a veneer of new wood over the existing cabinets. This is usually done with your existing countertops in place if they are in good shape.

Refinishing Your Old Cabinets Can Put You in a New Kitchen

Joseph Coupal - Monday, March 14, 2011

There are many ways to deal with old and tired looking cabinets. As you know, if you are contemplating a kitchen makeover, new cabinets are the bulk of the cost. But consider cabinet refinishing. Newly refinished cabinets can give you a brand new kitchen. Cut the cost on your kitchen makeover and add a new finish or decorative flair to your existing cabinets. From contemporary finish to old world charm, newly refinished cabinets with new knobs can change the entire look and feel of your kitchen.

If you have priced new cabinetry lately, most likely you have found that even stock cabinets at a big box store can run in the thousands of dollars. And if the original cabinets were custom made for your kitchen, most likely stock cabinets won’t be able to be used.  Therefore, if you are looking into brand new custom cabinets, you know the cost can easily run into the tens of thousands of dollars. In addition, the cost of tearing the old out and installing the new needs to be considered. Perhaps these costs have caused you to stop your remodeling project before it even begins. Cabinet Refinishing is a great way to save money and achieve the look you are after. If your cabinet doors are too damaged or old, new doors can be added during refinishing as well.

 When all options are considered, you may find that refinishing your existing cabinets may be a much better solution for many reasons, not the least being that all the above costs can be avoided. Your old cabinets, along with high quality finishing products, professional standards, and the right finish choice can have you in an entirely “new” kitchen.

Adding Decorative Cabinet Hardware To Your Cabinets

Joseph Coupal - Friday, November 26, 2010

Adding or replacing decorative cabinet hardware is one of the easiest facelifts you could possibly do for your cabinets. If your cabinets are in pretty good shape, and not too dated, changing pulls or knobs is an easy thing to do. The investment is cheap to do and will be a big return as well.

If your cabinets look really old, brand new decorative cabinet hardware might stand out like a sore thumb. Depending on the situation, though, you could add rustic pulls or knobs to your cabinets, and they'd still look good. Your cabinets might also just need a good cleaning to get them sparkling again.

If you are starting fresh, and don't already have pull or knob holes in your doors or drawer fronts the choices are almost endless. You can get 3" center pulls, or knobs, or 96mm, or 128mm, or just about anything you want.

Keep in mind though, that handles with 3" centers are the most common decorative cabinet hardware that there is. If you ever want to change handles in the future, there will certainly be tons of choices. If you go with, say 128mm handles, your future choices for handles will be limited, because you'll have to get 128mm handles again. Also, these handles are larger than normal, so cost more. Finish is also a factor in your cost. Stainless steel will cost much more than a nickel finish, but will look almost identical.
