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.

Angie's List of Kitchen Renovations

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, September 05, 2012

Not only is an outdated kitchen unattractive, but it can also make cooking challenging. Unfortunately, kitchen remodeling is one of the most expensive home improvement projects.

There are some ways that homeowners can update their kitchens without breaking the bank. These updates can lead to a more attractive kitchen that is also more pleasant for cooking and entertaining:

Angie's List tips: Simple kitchen updates

Remodel kitchen cabinets and shelves: Obtaining a completely new set of cabinets can be very expensive, but homeowners can hire a kitchen remodeling contractor to update, not replace, the cabinets inexpensively. Some common updates include adding slide-out shelves, lazy susans, drawers and new hardware, refinishing or refacing the cabinets. Painting or refacing cabinets is an aesthetically pleasing idea.

Install a new countertop: new countertop installation can take place in a single day, so homeowners may be able to find a contractor who will charge a reasonable rate for this upgrade. Corian or Granite countertops or some other material change the entire look and feel of your kitchen.

Update the faucets: A new kitchen faucet is a small addition, but it can change the look of a kitchen, making it appear more modern or refined.

Install new lighting: Lights that are too bright can give the kitchen a glaring, unfriendly look. Light that is too soft can make it hard to work. However, homeowners may want to consider installing several types of lights, in various places.

Add a garbage disposal or trash compactor: These appliances are relatively inexpensive and can be installed by most home builders. However, they can go a long way in making a kitchen more modern and practical.

No Need to Replace Kitchen Cabinets, Reface Kitchen Cabinets

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, May 23, 2012

Now is the season that home remodeling and home improvement projects start. This spring, if you’d like to replace your kitchen cabinets but are worried about busting your budget, try refacing them instead of replacing them. Refacing kitchen cabinets with new doors and drawer fronts, rather than replacing all of the cabinetry, can save about 50% on cost.

Save Money and Time

As a very general rule, if replacing the cabinets will cost you $5,000, refacing cabinets them will cost $2,500. If you are on a budget, this is a way to save money.

Most of what you see in a kitchen is cabinet doors and drawers, so this makes up the bulk of a remodeling job. The money you save can be used for replacing the flooring or countertops, buying new appliances or adding new lighting.

Cabinet refacing is also much faster than totally replacing cabinets, taking only three to five days. In most cases, the appliances do not need to be moved and the homeowner can still use the kitchen.

How It Works

Refacing cabinets does not mean you have to use the same color that is there now.

Most kitchen cabinets have good ‘bones,’ with cabinets that are furniture-quality construction.

At Cabinetry by Kenneth C. Lewis, cabinet refacing is not a cheesy, peel-and-stick product and process. This is real wood or laminate veneer being adhered to your existing cabinets. If you do it this way, the new veneer becomes one with the cabinet box. It is there for life.

Because the outsides of the cabinets are redone, you also can take this opportunity to add a few more cabinets or an island. These can be built to match your refaced cabinets.

If you want to add a pantry or a kitchen island, it can be matched seamlessly.

The kitchen is the most-used room in the house, it should reflect the homeowner. All of the elements that you can add while refacing give it more character.

Kitchen Remodeling Can Help You Sell Your Home

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Whether you are remodeling your home for sale right away, or simply to increase the value of your home for resale in the future, the right renovations will make all the difference. Kitchen renovations do much more than provide a cosmetic facelift to your property; they offer potential buyers the necessary motivation to select your home over the rest in your neighborhood. Kitchen face lifts offer the greatest value and resale potential for your home.

Kitchen Face Lift

Kitchens are the center of family activity, so it is no wonder these rooms tend to make or break a home sale. Buyers today are looking for kitchens that are light and airy, open enough for entertaining and filled with contemporary features and conveniences. Consider replacing laminate counters with granite countertops and updating sink hardware for an easy way to modernize the look of your kitchen. No need to replace the kitchen cabinets when they are well made, just worm out. Instead cabinet refacing and cabinet refinishing is a better, faster, less expensive option.

For information on fixing up your kitchen cabinets and countertops in order to sell your home, contact Cabinetry by Kenneth C. Lewis.

Save Money - Use Your Old Cabinets in your New Kitchen

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, March 07, 2012

Thinking about a kitchen makeover? New cabinets are the bulk of the cost. But newly refinished cabinets can give you a brand new kitchen. Cut the cost on your kitchen makeover by adding a new finish or decorative flair to your existing cabinets. Don’t rip them out and replace them, refinish them. No matter what style you are looking for, newly refinished cabinets can change the entire look and feel of your kitchen.
 
New cabinets, even in-stock cabinets at a big box store cost tens of thousands of dollars. If your kitchen cabinets were custom made, stock cabinets are not an option.  If you have been putting off a kitchen remodel, it has probably been in part from the cost of the project as well as the mess and stress of the project.

Cabinet Refinishing, especially on custom made cabinets, is a great way to get what you want from your kitchen in less time, for less money.

Cabinet refinishing may be a better, less stressful and far less time consuming solution. Your old cabinets, along with high quality finishing products, professional standards, and the right finish will give  you that “new” kitchen you have been waiting for; contact Cabinetry by Kenneth C. Lewis.
