Reface or Replace Kitchen Cabinet Doors?
When remodeling your kitchen, replacing or refacing your kitchen cabinets is a primary consideration. Candidates for kitchen cabinet refacing range from homeowners who simply want to modernize their existing kitchen to home sellers who must update their kitchens in order to increase their home’s marketability and selling price.
According to industry experts, minor kitchen remodeling provides the highest return on value of any remodeling project – even more than major kitchen remodeling! Real Estate experts agree that a kitchen face-lift is one of the best improvements homeowners can make.
If you like your existing kitchen cabinet layout and your cabinets are structurally sound, then kitchen refacing is typically your best alternative for updating your kitchen. You will enjoy substantial savings over installing new cabinets through lower labor and material costs and by preventing the domino effect of major remodeling – removing existing cabinets and expansion cabinet tops, replacing torn-out floors and walls, installation of new cabinets and more. And, many older kitchen cabinets are actually of higher quality than many cabinets being manufactured today.
Kitchen cabinet refacing allows you to have an updated kitchen in just 3 to 5 days, without the mess and inconvenience of major remodeling, and at a fraction of the cost of a major remodeling job. You will typically save over 60% by refacing kitchen cabinets instead of replacing them. You won’t sacrifice beauty by choosing to reface – you may choose from dozens of styles, including wood or painted doors and drawer fronts, to create the beautiful, customized kitchen that you desire.
