Benefits of Kitchen Cabinet Refacing – Boston, Cambridge, Belmont

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, December 18, 2013

There is no need to spend too much money on kitchen remodeling when all you need is a facelift and a fresh new look. Cabinet refacing is the better options. Refacing cabinets means replacing the cabinet doors and drawer fronts, and applying a new finish for all visible cabinet parts. Changing the hardware also gives a new, updated look. Rather than installing all new cabinets, refacing existing cabinets saves a lot of money, stress and time.

Cabinet refacing is becoming very popular because there are so many benefits.

1. Less Expensive

Refacing cabinets can save you up to 50% of the price of replacing your kitchen cabinets. This is money you can invest in new appliances, or keep in the bank.  This is definitely the right option if your kitchen layout is staying the same. Cabinet refacing is an ideal and economical way to get a new, fresh look in your kitchen.

2. Less Stressful

A full kitchen remodeling project involves removing all of your cabinets, and gutting your entire kitchen. It is a dusty, dirty, and very involved project that takes months. Living without a kitchen is extremely stressful and challenging.  Additionally, with cabinet refacing there is no waiting on the manufacturer for cabinet delivery. Refacing cabinets takes only 2-4 days.

3. Less waste

Cabinet refacing is a greener option for kitchen remodeling as well. Because you are using existing cabinets, your are saving space in landfills and saving energy in manufacturing and transporting.

4. Lots of Choices

Even though your are using the existing cabinets, you still have unlimited choices. You can choose stains or paints in any color. If you want glass doors, you can have those made to match your cabinets. The cabinet options are still unlimited, and the final result will look brand new.

Kitchen Renovation Q&A

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, November 07, 2012

Have you put off that kitchen renovation project long enough? Here are some questions and answers concerning a budget wise kitchen remodel.

Q: What are some ways to improve a kitchen, without a huge remodel?

A: Your kitchen is still functional, just unattractive or out-of-date. Everything still works, but is ugly and old. To brighten up a kitchen, paint it and change the light fixtures. Or consider under cabinet lighting and a backsplash. Refinishing or refacing cabinets is another economical idea that rejuvenates the kitchen and takes much less time and money than replacing the cabinets.

Q: Is it possible to replace the kitchen cabinets without replacing the countertop?

A: Refacing cabinets doesn’t result in big changes to size or layout. If you like your countertop, refacing the cabinets may be the way to go. You will get new doors and drawers installed and a matching veneer on the exposed sides of cabinets.

Q: Do you have tips to make a kitchen eco-friendly without denting the budget too badly?

A: Eco-friendly kitchen remodeling does not have to be more expensive. In fact, reusing the same cabinets is a greener alternative than replacing them, and it is far less expensive. When refinishing cabinets, using a green certified paint or stain is also an alternative. With countertops – granite is a stone, which is a green material.

Kitchen Remodeling Makes Better Investment

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, November 10, 2011

With houses remaining on the market for months, or even years, now is not a good time to be selling your home, says BankRate.com.

It has become the trend that short of short-selling your home, making attractive upgrades and renovations make all the difference to potential buyers with many homes to choose from.

However, if you have decided to stay in your home, rather than sell right now, remodeling your home for comfort or aesthetic reasons are also worthwhile in both the short and long run.

The recession discouraged home sellers from spending on home improvements, and large home remodeling jobs have decreased because people are not sure about the economy.

A minor kitchen remodel can also translate into a nice return. You will recoup anywhere from 71-73% of your cost.

What is a minor kitchen remodeling job? Start with your kitchen cabinets. You don’t need to replace your old cabinets. Refacing and refinishing kitchen cabinets is a very economical option that will enhance the appearance and style of your kitchen.

Paint, new countertops and perhaps new flooring can also have a dramatic effect on the look and feel of your kitchen.

Regardless of what you spend on a minor kitchen remodel, you can be promised a large return on your investment.
