To Refinish or Not to
Refinish that is the Question.
Here are some questions and answers you can use to
determine whether refinishing your cabinets is your best course of action.
Are you planning on changing the layout of your
kitchen in a major way. For example moving a wall or adding some extra
new cabinets, in either situation you might consider purchasing new cabinets
especially if you are looking for a lot of updated features in your cabinets
or a different style of cabinetry. Then again you can add onto your cabinets
with new unfinished cabinets that match your existing cabinets in wood
and style and have them finished to match your old cabinets or have all
the cabinets refinished in a new color scheme.
Another possibility is refacing, where only the
doors are changed and a new veneer is applied to the cabinet frames. Refacing,
although it is on average twice as expensive as refinishing, it is still
a great deal less expensive than replacement. Refacing is particularly
appropriate when you want to change the style of your door and drawer fronts
while retaining the same layout of your kitchen.
Refinishing is the most economical way to change
the look of your kitchen with the least amount of fuss. By changing the
hardware and refinishing a kitchen can look like brand new.
I've had many customers who have refinished their
cabinets for the sole purpose of making it easier to sell their home. A
newly refinished kitchen not only adds tremendously to the value of your
home it also makes it much easier to sell. Painting, has the ability of
making even the most raggedy cabinets look like new.
Many people who are happy with the color and style
of their cabinets find that for a very reasonable cost they can refinish
the doors and drawers only, (where most of the wear and tear takes place),
and remove years of use, and make their cabinets look like new again.
Refinishing can be an economical and easy answer
to your kitchen remodeling questions, I've seen hundreds of kitchens transformed
with a new countertop, a new floor and refinished cabinets.
