Are you wanting to get a fresh new look for your kitchen or bathroom, but don’t want to hassle with a full remodel? Are you happy with the layout of the room and don’t want to change the placement of appliances and cabinets in your kitchen? Then Cabinet Refacing is a great way to update your kitchen or bathroom.
Cabinet re-facing will change the whole look of the room without the mess of a full remodel job. Cabinet refacing can be done to both frameless and framed cabinets. A cabinet refacing job is typically completed much quicker than a fully remodeled kitchen or bathroom. You can go from a country kitchen to a modern kitchen in a matter of days or a very average bathroom to a bathroom that looks like you just walked into a spa within a few days for a minimal amount money when you re-face your cabinets.
When choosing to re-face cabinets, you need to have precise measurements to fit the existing cabinetry. If you choose to use a cabinet maker or millworker, they typically will come out an measure for you. Many custom wood shops will have samples to choose from, this helps you view the quality of their work as well.
There are many options to weigh through from deciding what types of materials to use such wood type, stain or paint, soft close hinges and pulls, dove tail drawer boxes, type of rail and stile, etc… When doing a cabinet re-facing job, you may also want to change or add crown molding and trim. You may want to add a wood range hood as well. Most custom cabinet makers are carpenters and are able to mill their own custom trim, crown molding, and hoods for stove tops. Another thing to remember when re-facing your cabinetry is that if you are changing the color or stain, you will also need to add wood veneer or paint the cabinet boxes. This is something the cabinet maker will do for you before installation and quoted in the price.
You may wonder, if this is something you can afford. I believe you will be surprised to find that “custom” doesn’t mean expensive. Don’t shy away from custom cabinetry because of cost. “Custom” means quality and personal. An estimate is typically free with most custom cabinet and furniture makers, don’t hesitate to make the call!
