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.

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Not only is an outdated kitchen unattractive, but it can also make cooking challenging.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.

Remodel by Repurposing Your Old Kitchen Cabinets

Joseph Coupal - Friday, August 10, 2012

The National Association of the Remodeling Industry’s Contractor of the Year awards program recently identified some of the top nation-wide remodeling trends, which frequently show up in projects.

Reclaim, Reuse and Refurbish
Several winning projects mentioned reusing items in the home and/or installing reclaimed items. Many clients request reusing items from their existing kitchens to some degree in remodeling projects.

People try to save as much as possible; they don’t want to replace everything.

For example: different ways of reuse such as cabinetry. Reuse the existing cabinets by refinishing or refacing cabinets rather than replacing them keeps costs and waste down. Also, reclaiming barn doors and repurposing a dresser into a bathroom vanity.

Another example: reclaimed long-leaf pine flooring, which matched the addition to the original home’s flooring throughout.

Clients often want their project to have that antique-look. There is a trend toward the distressed wood interiors and away from the sleek, contemporary look.

Old is new. Clients are consistently asking to have an old piece of wood or furniture repurposed into something else and they want it distressed to look old.

If you would like to repurpose your kitchen cabinets, or an old dresser, contact Kenneth C. Lewis.
