Save money on your kitchen remodel by refacing your cabinets instead of replacing them. Here are a few tips on what to look.
There are lot of things to consider before making that big decision, whether you’re looking to remodel the whole kitchen or giving it a little update, investing in new cabinets for your kitchen can take up 50 percent of your budget and functional cabinets can mean the difference between a kitchen that works and one that doesn’t. But what if you can’t afford to buy all-new cabinets with latest storage features and styles?
Many homeowners today are saving money by “refacing” rather than completely replacing their existing kitchen cabinets.
There are three primary ways to reface cabinets:
- Refinish or paint over existing cabinet and drawer fronts.
- Install new wood or laminate veneer over existing cabinet and drawer fronts.
- Install completely new cabinet doors and drawer fronts.
To get the complete update, these 3 cases will be the appropriate strategy to upgrade your countertops. The interior of the cabinets can be sanded, painted or stained for a completely new look.
Cheryl Catalano, owner of Kitchen Solvers explains, “Cabinet refacing can save up to 50 percent compared to the cost of replacing”, she continues to say, “Refacing is an ideal option for many people because of its convenience, the process doesn’t require removal of the appliances, so the kitchen stays functional while the work is being done.”
What this means is that, if you are looking to save some maintenance time and workload, refacing is the answer you may be looking for, keep in mind, not all kitchen remodeling will be the best option when it comes to refacing. Have a look on how your kitchen is set up, are there high-quality cabinets to begin with, which usually indicates that you should replace the entire piece.
You may be thinking, what about a mix-and-match option? Again, it all depends on how your kitchen is laid out, sure it is the practical and cost-saving option that many homeowners overlook, you want to invest more time with your partner and discuss the best option.
