Cabinet Refinishing and Repainting Keeps Kitchen Remodeling Inexpensive – Boston, Providence

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, April 23, 2014

The desire to update our kitchens. It never really goes away. It may ebb and flow, but it’s always there, nagging at us, dragging us to Home Depot. Causing us to spend hours on Houzz or posting to Pinterest. And the biggest offender in the kitchen is often the cabinets. Because if we want granite or quartz or some other solid surface slab countertop, there’s not really a super affordable option. Changing out the appliances is also pricey.

But cabinets…well, changing the color of the cabinets can be done inexpensively and quickly.

Want to have kitchen cabinets professionally refinished? Budget at least $1,000, depending on how much cabinetry you have, the prep work needed, and the type of paint or stain you choose.

Looking to make the change? Here is a guide to cabinet colors that can help.

Primary colors

The bottom line:   Ever see a kitchen on TV with bright yellow or blue cabinets and think it looks cool? Doesn’t mean we’re going to rush right out and paint our kitchen in fire engine red.
Upside: They’re unique
Downside: They’re unique
Tip: Experts advise people not to go so bold on their cabinets. Unless you’re not the type to get sick of things quickly and you are sure you aren’t moving anytime soon, it’s probably best to stick to a more neutral hue.


The bottom line: It’s classic and it’s versatile. “A kitchen that is white makes the space feel bigger. White is also a universally appealing color and leaves a blank slate so buyers can re-envision the space,” said Houzz.
Upside: It will probably always be in style.
Downside: It may get boring and can lack contrast.
Tip: Make sure to add in color and texture in accessories.

Dark Paint or Stain

The bottom line: Has dark wood seen its day? Depends on who you ask. Trending colors are on the light side, but Hues of chocolate and espresso are (still) a current trend in kitchen cabinetry.
Upside: Can look sleek and chic with contrasting counters and floors
Downside: Can look like a cave without substantial natural light.
Tip: Light cabinets, dark counters; dark cabinets, light counters.


The Bottom Line: Blue has been on the interior design radar for a few years and is now trending big in kitchens.
Upside: It’s hot in design circles so there is a multitude of shades available. It can accommodate a number of different styles. And, blue can also be an appetite suppressant.
Downside: Blue can be moody, it won’t be in style forever, necessitating a re-paint, and blue can also be an appetite suppressant.
Tip: If you love blue but you’re not sure about making such a strong commitment to the color, consider panting only the lower cabinets and sticking to a more neutral color like white for uppers.


The bottom line: Gray is easily the hottest color out there right now, and seems to have staying power. But if you’re worried about the possibility that it could look dated in a few years, you might want to go with something more classic.
Upside: It’s trending, so color options are abundant. Plus, it’s thought of as the new neutral, so it goes with just about everything and can range from super traditional to uber contemporary.
Downside: Will you need to replace your countertops, your floors, your furniture, your accessories and your wall color once you introduce gray into your home (we would and we have)?
Tip: Make sure you use a quality paint and brush/roller. Gray creates lots of shadows but can show everything.

Best Value Kitchen Remodeling Tips - Boston

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, October 30, 2013

Right now, everyone is looking for a way to increase their home value, and kitchen remodeling is a surefire way to significantly do that. However it can also get extremely expensive. But simple kitchen fix-ups can add value and comfort to your space while giving it a whole new look.

There are ways to spruce up your kitchen without breaking the bank. Try these tips:

Fix the countertops: Changing the material of kitchen countertops is a simple way to make an impact in the room. Materials such as ceramic, laminate, granite and siltstone are all great options. Laminate is the most cost effective and granite is the most popular.

Refinish kitchen cabinets: Even though cabinet replacement can be pricey, giving your existing cabinets a new look can come at an affordable price tag. Refinishing cabinets removes the original finish and replaces it with a new stain. Or it can involve painting the cabinets a bold color.

Redo lighting: Altering the lighting in your kitchen can give it a different look and feel. Track lighting is a good aesthetic choice with many different options. Add a few task lamps to improve the functionality of the work space area. Dimmers are easy to install and can make the atmosphere of the room more versatile.

Upgrade appliances: Buying even just one or two new appliances can significantly increase the kitchen’s value.  Large appliances, such as the refrigerator, oven and stove, should be upgraded first.

Restyle the floor:   Laying a new floor doesn’t have to be a costly project. Materials such as peel-and-stick vinyl tiles are inexpensive and can be easy to install. Other excellent options include linoleum, porcelain, cork and stained concrete.

You don’t need to start from scratch to give your kitchen a makeover. With small improvements, you can get a great return on your investment. For more information on refinishing kitchen cabinets, contact Kenneth C. Lewis.

Less Expensive Kitchen Remodeling Options

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, January 12, 2012

Are you considering beginning a kitchen remodeling or renovation project in the next few months? If so, head to the New England Home Show in February. Kenneth C Lewis Cabinetry will be there and we would love to speak with you about Cabinet Refinishing or Cabinet Refacing.

Cabinet Refinishing is a less expensive way to address your old and shabby kitchen cabinets.  You can still have a beautiful or elite looking kitchen, and cabinet refinishing is a less time consuming option and a great way to send money. And the cost can be lower if your cabinets and doors are in good shape.  Many decorative effects can be achieved during any cabinet refinishing project with paint or stain.

Cabinet Refacing is a bit more expensive than cabinet refinishing, but far less expensive than replacing your kitchen cabinets entirely. Cabinet refacing involves the replacement of the door and drawer fronts. A veneer of new wood is also applied over the existing cabinets.

Both of these options are easier, less time consuming and much less expensive. For more information contact us, and come see us at the New England Home Show in February.

So Many Recommend Cabinet Refacing Instead of Remodeling

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, December 01, 2011

At Cabinetry Refinishing by Kenneth C. Lewis, we take what our customers say about us very seriously. To everyone who has taken the time to comment and recommend us, we appreciate it very much.  Customer satisfaction is a big part of what we do.

Kitchen cabinet refacing and refinishing is an easier, faster and much more economical solution to an entire kitchen remodel.
Here is what some of our customers are saying:

Thank you so much Ken for revitalizing our kitchen. Before you came and made our kitchen beautiful it was extremely dark and dreary. My husband and I were thinking of putting in a new kitchen and then we found out how much it would cost and how much time it would take for all the contractors to complete it.

You saved our kitchen and our sanity. – From Julie in Newton, MA

Our kitchen has never looked so good, my wife raves over how easy our cabinets are to clean and says the finish is so durable! You're very talented and we are glad we chose Kenneth C. Lewis over all the other options. – From Sam in Newton, MA

Simply put: I love my kitchen! – From Fran in Sharon, MA

We've had problems since the day we installed our kitchen. We live on the ocean and the cabinet manufacturer said that the reason for the finish failure was the environment. You completed our kitchen in days instead of months and it looks better than it ever did. – From Joe & Kathy in Duxbury, MA
