Refinishing Kitchen Cabinets Gives you a “New” Kitchen for Less – Newton, Weston, Brookline

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, February 12, 2014

Many homeowners dream of giving their kitchens a full-scale remodel. Though such a project can give a kitchen an entirely new look, that look does not come cheap. On a major kitchen remodel, homeowners can expect to spend more than $53,000. So while the idea of a full-scale kitchen remodel might be a dream project, the cost of such an undertaking is beyond many homeowners' budgets.

But homeowners who cannot afford a full kitchen remodel can still give their kitchens a new look and can do so for relatively little money. Refinishing kitchen cabinets in a new color, by giving fading cabinets a fresh face can instantly add life to a kitchen, giving the room an entirely different feel without breaking the bank.

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. Many decorative effects can be achieved during any cabinet refinishing project with paint or stain.

Refinishing kitchen cabinets significantly increases the value of your home. But best of all the process is painless. The average actual time spent in your kitchen is 3 - 4 days with minimal interruption to your normal home life. And, at Kenneth C. Lewis, we use the most durable commercial grade lacquer on the market.

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.

Kitchen Facelift Instead of a Kitchen Remodel

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, November 01, 2011

Many homeowners, thinking they need a kitchen remodel, only need a kitchen facelift. The kitchen is the heart of the house, for that, it needs soul.

But sometimes, a remodel is just too expensive. A kitchen facelift can be done, a minor kitchen remodeling project, which injects the kitchen with life and soul.

A kitchen face-lift typically involves refreshing a lot of the old and injecting some of the new.

Kitchen face-lifts are all about making the most of what you have, maybe keep the flooring and the cabinetry. Add new backsplash, as well as countertops.

When you have kitchen cabinets that are sturdy and in good shape, cabinet refacing or cabinet refinishing, or a combination of both, is a great, inexpensive option.

Add new appliances if necessary, maybe an island if you have space and Viola! A new kitchen. Contact Kitchen Cabinetry.

Stay in Your Home Just Remodel it

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 25, 2011

Many homeowners who want to remodel are faced with the question: Should they replace their kitchen cabinets or just replace the cabinet doors?

Other homeowners have no idea that, depending on the material, they could restore their countertops to save some money, rather than buy new ones.

They want their kitchen remodel to be done right but also economically. They are also sure about one other thing.

They are not interested in buying a new home, just in making their existing home more comfortable by fixing up the kitchen and the bathroom.

The state of the economy and real estate market has created plenty of interest in remodeling projects. But consumers are not spending as much money as they used, but rather looking for more economical solutions. One of those solutions is cabinet refacing or cabinet refinishing in the kitchen and the bathroom.

If you are interested in spending your money more wisely, looking for value, and staying put, contact Cabinetry by Kenneth C. Lewis.

Need to Refresh your Kitchen? Replace your Countertop

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 18, 2011

We all know that a kitchen make-over is money well spent. If you need a kitchen face lift, think about replacing your countertops. New counters can help revitalize an older kitchen, or give a kitchen a new look and feel.

Many homeowners just are not interested in a whole kitchen remodel because of the disruption to daily life. The solution is granite countertops. Kenneth Lewis spends an average of 3-4 days in your home.

Kenneth C. Lewis can offer alternative solutions to your kitchen remodeling project. Your entire kitchen can get a new look just by replacing the counters. If it is storage space or surface area that you need, add a kitchen island.

Countertop replacement is usually the best option when you want to totally change or remodel your kitchen. We can guide you in your selection of countertop including granite, corian, cambria quartz and other quality materials for replacing your existing countertops.
 
If you are interested in updating the look and feel of your kitchen with new countertops, contact Kenneth C. Lewis.

Home Improvements ROI

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 11, 2011

If you’re planning on a few home improvements, it's best to know which of them are likely to pay off if you sell your home and which won’t. ROI, or return on investment, should play a part in your plan. Basically, it is how much money you could recoup when you sell. Will that minor bathroom remodeling job be a good investment or not? Should you spend the extra money to fix up the kitchen?

More often than not, sellers can get back a substantial percentage of their outlay for a variety of well-executed improvements if they keep the market in mind.

According to the Cost vs. Value Report a "minor" kitchen remodel (in home improvement speak that's about $20K) is usually a good investment. The national average for cost returned is about 83%.

Keep in mind that spending more doesn't necessarily mean you'll get back a higher percentage later. In the last year, an upscale kitchen makeover, which might involve installing custom cherry cabinets and other luxurious amenities, the average recouped value is lower (about 78%) than for a minor kitchen remodeling project (83%) that is much less extensive or expensive.

This is why you should consider spending less and getting a larger return on that investment. If you have nice solid, but perhaps run down kitchen cabinets, consider kitchen cabinet refacing or refinishing. Contact us.

Kitchen Cabinet Refinishing for Colonial Massachusetts Homes

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 04, 2011

There are many colonial homes in Massachusetts. Often in these homes, you would like a kitchen remodel, but it is important to stay with the period look.

Often in these kitchens, the cabinets are custom made and designed, so they are challenging to replace. Additionally, when considering replacing the kitchen cabinets often you feel s though you may need to remove walls, which would detract from the cozy, colonial feel of the original kitchen.

Cabinet refinishing can save you the hassle and expense of ordering and installing new kitchen cabinets, and will allow you to keep the look of your kitchen and home intact.  With cabinet refinishing, the original cabinets remain in place and the doors are refinished in the look and style you are looking for.

Besides being a less expensive route, it takes far less time; around 3-4 days. Contact Kenneth C. Lewis at Cabinet Refinishing for more information on the process.


Prolong the Life and Look of Your Kitchen Cabinets

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, September 27, 2011

If you are considering a kitchen remodel, you are certainly considering new cabinets. We encourage you to consider cabinet refinishing or cabinet refacing. These are less expensive options to replacing your kitchen cabinets. However the effect is just as dramatic and just as beautiful.

After your cabinets are refaced or refinished, you’ll need to know how to take care and maintain them. Like any high quality furniture, your kitchen cabinets should be treated carefully and cleaned and maintained with quality materials.

  • Clean cabinets with a mild detergent or with soap and water (use sparingly) and dry them well using a lint-free cloth.
  • Wipe up spills, splatters and water spots as they occur, keeping cabinets and countertops dry.
  • Give special attention to areas near the sink and dishwasher that come in contact with moisture.
Use cleaners and polishes designed for wood cabinets and clean all surfaces as needed. As with any product constructed of wood, a few minutes of care can keep your newly refinished or refaced kitchen cabinets looking their best.

Contact Cabinet Refinishing for your kitchen cabinet remodeling needs.

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.

The Cost of New Cabinets Just Went Down

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, September 14, 2011

Newly refinished cabinets give you the feel of a brand new kitchen. Best of all, you can much better manage the cost of your kitchen makeover.  Spend the money or something else, or put it in the bank! No matter your décor, refinish your cabinets with a contemporary finish or old world charm.

It is possible that remodeling your kitchen has been cost prohibitive. Not with cabinet refinishing. Cabinet Refinishing is a great way to save money and achieve the look you are after.
