Kitchen Facelift with Cabinet Refacing

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, February 27, 2013

Your kitchen needs a facelift, and there is no better way to do this than by updating the cabinets. But, you don’t need to replace them, you can use cabinet refacing and have the same effect, for less money, in less time.

What is the look you are after? You can achieve any look by refacing kitchen cabinets. Anywhere from an Antique finish to modern and sleek can be achieved through refinishing. You can replace some cabinet door altogether and replace them with glass doors to display some of your beautiful dishes.
Replacing cabinet and drawer hardware adds to the effect.

Once the cabinet refacing process is complete, which just takes a few days, you can further complement your kitchen facelift by adding lighting, backsplashes or flooring depending  on your budget and the look and feel you are trying to achieve.

The Benefits to Cabinet Refacing

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, February 13, 2013

You love your home, but your kitchen needs a facelift. New cabinets are out of the question, the cost is too prohibitive. There is another solution. Cabinet refacing is a popular alternative to replacement. Updating your kitchen by refacing the cabinets can be a very effective way of updating your kitchen.

What is cabinet refacing? This is replacing only the doors and drawer fronts and applying a matching wood veneer to the existing framework. Homeowners can save thousands of dollars by choosing kitchen cabinet refacing and you can achieve the look you are after.

There are also several benefits to choosing this option. Cabinet refacing is far more cost effective than replacement; replacing cabinets is very inconvenient and can keep you out of your kitchen for weeks where cabinet refacing can be done in 2 days; and finally, it will give your kitchen an entirely new look.

Keep Kitchen Remodeling Costs Down

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, February 06, 2013

A kitchen remodel is one of the more common home upgrades. Styles change, new technologies improve old appliances and your kitchen gets a lot of use.
 
For an inexpensive kitchen remodel you'll have questions to answer.

  1. How big is your budget?
  2. How much remodeling will your budget allow?
  3. How much (if any) of it will you do yourself?

Find out how much you can afford to spend. Then work within that budget. In fact, you probably should only plan on spending about 90% of your budget. Kitchen remodeling projects tend to uncover a surprise or two.

Once you have a budget number, decide how much remodeling you can fit within that budget.

There are a lot of less-expensive options available. You might want to refinish cabinet doors. Or if the underlying cabinets are sturdy and in good shape, cabinet refacing could be a good choice.

Make the little things count. People tend to notice things such as drawer pulls and handles. You might get more impact by spending an extra dollar on each of the 18 drawer pulls and handles instead of spending hundreds more on the cabinet doors.

Choose your contractor carefully. Get three bids on any work that a professional will do. And check contractors' references. Make sure they're bonded and insured. Agree in advance on how you'll be billed for unexpected problems that add to the labor.

Home Renovations Spending Tops New Construction

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, September 20, 2012

Home makeovers have never been more popular. Spending on remodeling has topped new construction for the first time nationwide.

Many people are buying homes for the first time that have older kitchens. These homes need renovation work. The home is in the right price range, and the layout works, so new homeowners are doing the work to make the home right.

This is not uncommon. More people are opting for home remodeling rather than building new than ever before.

A lot of people love where they live, and they don't want to build, they don't want to move. So, it gives you that option of staying in the school district, getting that fresh new look, and working with the space that you have.

Remodeling can give a home an updated feeling, and keeps the resale value up. And an easier, less expensive way to update a kitchen is by using the old cabinets rather than buying new. Kitchen cabinet refacing and refinishing is a better, greener way to rehab an old kitchen.

With a new kitchen and new flooring and paint, homeowners can have the home they were looking for.

Angie's List of Kitchen Renovations

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, September 05, 2012

Not only is an outdated kitchen unattractive, but it can also make cooking challenging. Unfortunately, kitchen remodeling is one of the most expensive home improvement projects.

There are some ways that homeowners can update their kitchens without breaking the bank. These updates can lead to a more attractive kitchen that is also more pleasant for cooking and entertaining:

Angie's List tips: Simple kitchen updates

Remodel kitchen cabinets and shelves: Obtaining a completely new set of cabinets can be very expensive, but homeowners can hire a kitchen remodeling contractor to update, not replace, the cabinets inexpensively. Some common updates include adding slide-out shelves, lazy susans, drawers and new hardware, refinishing or refacing the cabinets. Painting or refacing cabinets is an aesthetically pleasing idea.

Install a new countertop: new countertop installation can take place in a single day, so homeowners may be able to find a contractor who will charge a reasonable rate for this upgrade. Corian or Granite countertops or some other material change the entire look and feel of your kitchen.

Update the faucets: A new kitchen faucet is a small addition, but it can change the look of a kitchen, making it appear more modern or refined.

Install new lighting: Lights that are too bright can give the kitchen a glaring, unfriendly look. Light that is too soft can make it hard to work. However, homeowners may want to consider installing several types of lights, in various places.

Add a garbage disposal or trash compactor: These appliances are relatively inexpensive and can be installed by most home builders. However, they can go a long way in making a kitchen more modern and practical.
