Cabinet Door Replacement is the Perfect Solution for a Quick and Effective Kitchen Remodeling Project – Boston, MA

Joseph Coupal - Friday, March 06, 2015

Cabinet door replacement in Boston, MA is the perfect solution for kitchen cabinets whose aesthetic value has declined due to wear and tear of the doors. Sometimes, just the replacement of cabinet doors which have been damaged due to frequent use is all that needs to be done to give your kitchen a brand new look and feel.

You no longer have to throw away your existing cabinets if they are in good shape but just look old. A better solution for your wallet, your time, your quality of life, and the land fill is to replace cabinet doors. And even if there is no damage, but the doors look dated, replacing cabinet doors can still be done to give your kitchen a quick facelift. Kitchen cabinets are not only intended for storage. Oftentimes, cabinet doors have patterns, colors and designs that make the whole kitchen beautiful and welcoming making them a very place to start your remodeling project.

If your budget for your kitchen remodeling project is limited, you have the option of a mini remodel, updating each part of your kitchen separately instead of remodeling it all at once. If you want to begin with a smaller project that has a big impact, hire a professional to get started right away with cabinet door replacement.

Green Kitchen Remodeling with Cabinet Refacing

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, April 10, 2013

If you are considering a kitchen remodeling project, consider a green kitchen remodel which could be healthier for your home and the environment.

However, most people think that going green for their remodeling project will be more expensive. Well, you will be happy to hear that going green can actually be more cost effective than the alternative.

Here are some money saving green remodeling tips:

  • Keep the same kitchen layout rather than redesigning the entire floor plan. This saves, time money and space in landfills.
  • Rather than ripping out and replacing your kitchen cabinets, choose the green option. If you cabinets are dated, but in good shape or have good bones don’t replace them, reuse them. By refacing cabinets or refinishing cabinets you save money, transportation energy, landfill space and materials. You can even refinish or paint your cabinets with green paint. Best of all, they achieve a whole new look.
  • Energy efficient appliances is an expense at the outlay, however, they end up saving you money on electric bills.
  • Granite countertops as well as other stone, quartz and bamboo are all green materials because they are natural and sustainable with no VOC’s. Recycled materials can be used for countertops as well, such as stone, concrete, butcher block, stainless steel and glass tile.
  • LED lights can be added for efficient lighting. Compact fluorescent light bulbs should be used in your other lighting fixtures. Again LED and CFL lightbulbs will save you money in the long run because you will spend less on energy and spend less in replacement bulbs.

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.

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.

The Cost of New Cabinets Just Went Down

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, September 14, 2011

As you know, when contemplating a kitchen remodel, new cabinets are the majority of the cost, and the stress. Why don’t you think about cabinet refinishing?

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.

If your original cabinets are in good shape other than being a bit dated or worn, refinishing your cabinets are a great solution to getting you a new kitchen with half the cost and in far less time.

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.

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. 

Home Improvement Projects Pay More Than a Savings Account

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, August 09, 2011

There are many homeowners that are hesitant to put their homes on the market today because they don’t feel as though they would get the asking price for it. Combine this with the lowest personal savings account interest rates in history and you have more people investing in their homes than ever. If you are going to keep your house, you may as well make it more comfortable while you’re there, and when you do sell it, the return you will get will most likely be higher than any interest rate.

One of the home improvement projects that do pay - Remodel the kitchen:

An average kitchen remodeling project takes nine months to plan and three months to build, according to the National Kitchen and Bath Association. You can improve the overall look and feel of a kitchen with a lot less work and money simply by refurbishing what you have. Some refurbishing options include refaced cabinets instead of new, resurfaced countertops or an added backsplash, updated flooring and under-cabinet task lighting.

Regardless of the project you plan to undertake, there are a few things you can do to ensure you get the most for your money.

  • Establish a budget:
  • Hire a qualified remodeler who is familiar with local building codes.
  • Compare products and prices before you begin.
  • Work with a contract.
