Give Your Kitchen a Facelift with Cabinet Re-facing

Kitchen Cabinets

Are you thinking of remodeling a kitchen or bathroom? Or do you just want a fresh look, but are unsure of the amount of work and money required? Consider cabinet re-facing rather than buying new cabinets. Cabinet re-facing involves taking your existing cabinets and giving them a new look. Bathroom and kitchen cabinet refacing is fast and affordable and allows you the opportunity to get a new stylish look you'll love. Best of all, it can often be done without a kitchen or bathroom remodeling contractor! There are many options available for upgrading your existing cabinets.

One of the least expensive upgrades is to simply replace all of the hardware on your cabinets, including knobs, handles, and pullers. This is a simple way to give your cabinets a new look with very little effort or cost, making it a perfect choice for those who find even small kitchen remodeling projects daunting. You can also get matching hinges for a consistent look.

Cabinets should work for you and your lifestyle. So there are also features you can add to your cabinets and drawers to make them more functional, like sliding shelves, lazy susans, and dish racks. These and many more variations can keep you things organized and clutter free.

The next option is to paint or stain your existing cabinets; this would allow you to update your old cabinets with any color you wish. This is relatively easy and inexpensive, you could combine this with new hardware and you will have a whole new look. You will want to make sure that the paints and/or stains you use are appropriate for your room.

Another re-facing project would be to upgrade just the cabinet doors and drawer fronts. You would do this by having the old doors and drawers taken out and replacing them with new ones, but keep the cabinet boxes, having them re-painted or stained to match the new doors. There is a wide variety of styles to choose from including different types of wood finishes and veneers. Glass cabinets are also a popular style that allows you to see into the cabinet; these tend to give an "upscale" look to the cabinets.

Remodeling your cabinets is a worthwhile investment and will give you the look you want for your home, while still being affordable. When you are ready to start your cabinet re-facing project, your contractor will be a great resource for you in helping you to choose colors, styles, materials and they will be able to help you get the look you want that will fit into your budget.
