Refacing Kitchen Cabinets Can Help you Sell Your Home

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.

An alternative to replacing them is refacing them. Cabinet refacing is less expensive than buying all new cabinets. Cabinet refacing involves the replacement of the door and drawer fronts and installing a veneer of new wood over the existing cabinets.
 
If your kitchen is just dated, and not in need of a new floor plan, refinishing or resurfacing the cabinets will update the look and save you money to spend on replacing the appliances.
 
Contact Kenneth C Lewis Cabinetry if you want a less expensive option to a kitchen remodel.

Need a Kitchen Remodel? Choose a Less Expensive Option

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, September 06, 2011

Your kitchen needs updating, but you do not want the expense of replacing the cabinets. Choose a less costly option. Replace the doors.

If the old cabinets are in good shape and are high-quality solid wood, it may only be the doors that really needed to be replaced.

Replacing the doors and covering the remaining exposed parts of the cabinets with a matching veneer can be done for about half the cost. This is the process of refacing.

In cabinet refacing, the cabinet doors are removed, and the sides and exterior face of the cabinet are covered with veneer. After the covering is installed, the new doors are added. New drawer fronts are also created and installed to match.

One of the greatest advantages of refacing cabinets is the minimal disruption to your home. Refacing is easier and faster. The cabinets should be well built and worth saving.

In order to increase storage, it is possible to add cabinets that match the refaced ones. If you replace the counters at the same time, you will feel as though you have had a full-blown kitchen remodel.

New cabinet doors can be made of a variety of woods, such as cherry, oak or maple, or with a wood laminate.

Contact Kenneth Lewis if refacing seems like the right option for you. 

Kitchen Remodeling is the Number One Home Improvement Project

Joseph Coupal - Monday, June 13, 2011

Summer is the busiest time for home improvement projects and, after a few years of a down economy, it looks like more people will take the plunge in the summer of 2011.

Kitchen remodeling is the number one project that people take on.

It is also the best return for your investment.

You can get as much as an 85% return on your money and it can cost as little as a few thousand dollars for things like re-facing cabinets and a fresh coat of paint.

A good rule of thumb is never spend more than 20 percent of your home's value on any re-modeling job, especially if you are thinking about selling in the next few years.

"Understand exactly what the market is, do they have granite countertops, do they have stainless steel appliances, because the last thing you want to do is price yourself out of the market because that is going to cut into your return," Hicks, from Angies List, said.

In general, you can expect an 85% return on your kitchen re-model when you sell your home.

In the meantime, you get the benefits of a better kitchen, which for most families is the "heart of the home."

Kitchen remodeling on a budget
Just about everybody can make their kitchen their own dream kitchen space without breaking the bank or causing a divorce. Here are some suggestions to do kitchen remodeling on a budget.

1.   Add a fresh coat of paint  
2.   Order new doors or fronts for your appliances  
3.   Refacing your cabinets or replacing the doors  
4.   Replace the cabinet hardware with high end hardware  
5.   Replace your sink or just the faucet

Kitchen Cabinet Refacing Is Faster and Easier than Remodeling the Kitchen

Joseph Coupal - Monday, May 23, 2011
Need to remodel your kitchen but think it will be too high priced? Then think about kitchen cabinet refacing. The cost of kitchen cabinet refacing is considerably less than the price of gutting your kitchen and the job is done in a much shorter amount of time.

If you want a whole new kitchen without breaking the budget, contemplate cabinet refacing. Kitchen cabinet refacing usually involves the replacement of the door and drawer fronts (with new) plus installing a veneer of new wood over the existing cabinets. But refacing could also mean anything from repainting the current cabinets and drawer fronts and updating the hardware to stripping cabinet doorways and applying veneer or other decorative elements. Refacing could also include completely changing cabinet doors.

Most home owners intend to keep the layout of their kitchen area the same especially when it is functional and designed well. In these cases, there really is no reason to tear out the cabinets.

By having kitchen cabinets refaced rather than replaced you will be getting the benefits of a major custom kitchen remodel at a more cost-effective value.

Budget for your Kitchen Remodel

Joseph Coupal - Monday, April 11, 2011

It is important to prepare a budget for your kitchen remodeling plan before you start implementing it. Without a complete and detailed budget prepared before the kitchen renovation begins, you may get swept into a spending spiral of un-budgeted extras.

Limit spending on the kitchen remodeling to about 15-percent of your home's value.

The cost of appliances, countertops, cabinets, flooring, and so on, will add up to one-half to two-thirds of the total cost of remodeling. Find out the prices for these items and plug those figures into the budget. Similarly, make provisions for the cost of labor, design, contracting services, and permit fees.

Consider cabinet refinishing or refacing rather than purchasing brand new cabinets. This will dramatically cut down on the expense, but even better, it will dramatically cut down on the mess, stress, and length of time of the project. Cabinet refinishing is perfect if your cabinets are in good shape but they have an out of date look. Cabinet refacing is a great option when you have custom built cabinets that were well made, but perhaps have damaged or out of date fronts. The door and drawer fronts will be remade and replaced, entirely changing the look of your kitchen in much less time, for much less money and much less stress.

Refacing Your Kitchen Cabinets Saves Time and Money

Joseph Coupal - Monday, March 28, 2011

When you get tired of your existing cabinets,  and it is time for a makeover, you may find that refacing your cabinets is the right choice. This saves time and money for most and the results will make your home look new and in style again. Many times existing cabinets are still in good condition and are of good quality, it's just the look and the style makes them look old and out of date.

Kitchen cabinet refacing can be a terrific option to consider if you want a whole new look to your kitchen without breaking your budget. This usually includes replacing the old doors and drawer fronts with new custom-made doors and drawer fronts. If your old doors are getting dingy or are starting to crack or break, replacing the old doors with new is a great option. Especially if your existing cabinets were custom made for your kitchen. You can choose almost any style doors for your cabinet project, and this adds a new, fun, fresh look to your kitchen.

If you want a new kitchen, but the real problem is the cabinets, consider cabinet refacing. Kitchen remodeling and updating adds value to your home.  But most importantly, refacing your cabinets will make your home more inviting and attractive to both you and your visitors. The cost of kitchen cabinet refacing is considerably less than the cost of completely gutting your kitchen and in a much shorter time period. You will be glad that you made the decision to do this for yourself.

Refacing Your Cabinets Is The Affordable Solution

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, November 03, 2010

Cabinet refacing enables you to get the look of new cabinetry for a fraction of the cost of installing all new cabinets.  Kitchen renovations don't have to cost and arm and a leg. If you're dreaming of remodeling your kitchen, but don't think you can afford it, you should consider cabinet refacing. A great way to stretch your remodeling budget without sacrificing on quality, kitchen cabinet refacing enables you to get the look of completely new cabinets for far less than installing all new cabinets. You don't have to overspend to achieve a great new look for your home!

Never heard of refacing cabinets? That's okay: not everyone has. Refacing cabinets involves utilizing your existing cabinetry as the basis for your new cabinets. Our professionals will remove your old door and drawer fronts while leaving the cupboards themselves in place as the framework for the new cabinets. We then adhere new side panels to the exterior of your cabinetry, add new solid-wood doors and drawer fronts, and leave you with a kitchen that looks completely new - without blowing your budget!

As long as the current layout of your kitchen cabinetry suits your needs and the cabinet boxes themselves are in good condition, cabinet refacing is the best option for creating a fresh new look for your home. Because the doors and drawers are replaced, you can take even the most outdated styles and make them look modern and sleek. And because the sides of the old cabinets will be covered as well, you can go from dark cabinetry to light or vice-versa. The sky's the limit when it comes to making over the appearance of your cabinets with professional refacing.

So if it's time to do something about your kitchen's outdated cabinets, don't feel like you have to spend thousands and thousands of dollars replacing all of your cupboards. You can save tons of money and still get the gorgeous appearance you want with professional kitchen cabinet refacing. Get the look you want at a fraction of the price: choose cabinet refacing and get the most bang for your buck. Contact us to learn more about cabinet refacing, great savings, and great quality.
