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.

An Old Kitchens Can be New Again

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Everything old is new again. There is a trend of reusing items in the home and/or installing reclaimed items. People are looking to save money wherever they can. Not replacing everything with new material can sometimes make perfect sense. Besides the environmental benefits, some reclaimed wood, such as pine, comes from old-growth trees that were denser.

Resurfacing the existing kitchen cabinets with new or reclaimed wood can save money and time. The new face can add character, richness and look like a brand new kitchen. The average actual time that Kenneth C. Lewis spends in your kitchen is 3 - 4 days!

If after the Thanksgiving holiday, you decide your kitchen needs a facelift, and you want it ready for the December holidays, contact Kenneth C. Lewis.

Green Kitchen Upgrades

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, August 01, 2012

The kitchen is where we spend most of our time when we are at home. It also accounts for much of a home’s energy use. Both of these factors make kitchens targets for green upgrades.

Upgrading to Energy Star appliances is the number one change homeowners make to have a more environmentally friendly kitchen. However, what about your kitchen cabinets?

If you want a kitchen face lift, but you want to stay green. Consider refacing or refinishing kitchen cabinets rather than replacing them. Cabinet refacing and refinishing eliminates the raw materials, energy use, and waste in building new cabinets.  Cabinet refacing and refinishing also eliminates using land fill space in dumping old cabinets.

There are even environmentally friendly, or green certified paints and stains you could use when refinishing and refacing your existing kitchen cabinets.

For information on pursuing your green kitchen upgrade, contact Kenneth Lewis.

Cabinets: Replace or Reface?

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, May 30, 2012

You have been thinking about fixing up your kitchen for a while now. Well, now is the time. You don’t need a huge budget and you don’t need to invest months of time to give your kitchen a facelift. Change the entire look and feel of your kitchen by kitchen cabinet refacing.

Replace or Reface?

Your kitchen is a good candidate for a refacing job if:

  • The cabinets were built before 1980. This means they were most likely built from real 3/4-inch plywood and solid particle board.
  • The size, height, and design of your kitchen cabinets now meet your needs.
  • The layout of your kitchen and your kitchen cabinets works. 
  • You don't have a huge budget.
  • You don't want to be, or can't be without the use of your kitchen for more than a few days.

New Countertops Add Value in This Tough Housing Market

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, March 29, 2012

Some home improvement projects do not give you the return on investment to make them worthwhile. However, there are some home improvements that increase market value. Most realtors will tell you, kitchens and bathrooms are where the sale is made.

Wall paint colors are easily and inexpensively changed, and chances are that the new homeowner is going to change the wall colors anyway. Complete ktchen remodels certainly create a wow-factor that will boost the value of a home, but the cost is prohibitive for many homeowners, and the work required is lengthy and messy.

Kitchens and bathrooms can benefit from a significant facelift simply by replacing outdated countertops with new custom countertops. At various price points, homeowners can choose from granite countertops, soapstone countertops, silestone countertops, concrete countertops, and a growing number of eco-friendly countertops.

Not every investment will actually pay off when you try to sell. New countertops, however, can beautify your home while you're living there and still provide great ROI when you're ready to move.

By choosing smart upgrades such as new countertops, a home's value will likely increase. Feature such as these are quickly becoming the standard for kitchens and bathrooms. Potential buyers will often not consider a home without granite countertops since they are so popular and readily available these days. Being competitive is crucial in a tough housing market.

For information or a consultation on new countertops, contact Cabinetry by Kenneth C Lewis.
