If you are looking for a way to update and/or redecorate your kitchen, you are probably going to sit down and prepare a budget (if you are not already planning on this, you really should). Once you start looking around at the home improvement stores, you may find that your budget is a bit lacking if you had plans on replacing the cabinetry. Luckily, there is an alternative option that will save you a lot of money, yet still give you the look you want. Contact a company that offers cabinet refacing services and discuss what you need. Here are just a few benefits of cabinet refacing when remodeling your kitchen.
Ease of Installation
If you were to replace the cabinets in your kitchen, it would involve tearing the old ones out. In addition, moving the new cabinets into place can be a bit of a problem when the units are large or oddly shaped. When you reface the cabinets, there are no problems like this because the cabinets themselves are not moved. Taking off the doors, removing the drawers, and even taking off the countertops are much easier to get done.
Cabinet refacing changes everything but the underlying structure of the unit. A wood laminate layer will be fit over the front of the cabinets once the doors and drawers are removed. You may choose to have entirely new doors and drawers, or have them covered with the laminate too. A new countertop will be put on. Finally, all new hardware will be put on. The cabinets will look entirely new. You may even opt to have the interior areas of each cabinet painted or stained so they don't look older than the rest of the unit.
Ripping out old cabinets can result in damage to the walls and floors of the kitchen. In addition, the new cabinets may not fit exactly the way the old ones did, leaving areas that need to be repaired, floored, or painted to match the rest of the room.
Refacing is the best option when the old cabinets' exterior is damaged. Painting over cracks, chips, or holes will not make things look any better. Refacing gives your cabinets a completely new look. If you have found replacement cabinets that you like, you can always have your current ones refaced to look just like them. Go ahead and look at new units to get an idea of what you want. Then save yourself some money by refacing what you have instead of buying new.

When my husband and I got married a few years ago, I moved into the home my husband already owned. While I liked this home, the bathroom in the master suite was extremely small. My husband and I immediately started having difficulties sharing this tight space. Our solution to this common problem was not to move. Instead, we decided to hire a contractor to build an addition onto our home. With our contractor’s help, we designed a larger bathroom that was big enough to accommodate two people comfortably. On this blog, you will discover how to make your marriage happier by hiring a contractor to build a larger bathroom onto your existing home.
