In the kitchen, remodeling can include replacing kitchen cabinets, painting the cabinets, refacing them, adding new cabinet doors, or completely remodeling the room. Kitchen remodeling can also mean adding new sinks, faucets, countertops, appliances, or storage systems. With cabinet refacing, apply the same good old coating technique to your existing cabinet boxes and install new cabinet doors to give your kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room a new appearance and feel. With bathroom remodeling, remove any or all cabinet doors from your home and replace them with new ones that match your bathroom’s style or accommodate a major update. Regardless of what type of kitchen remodeling you are considering, it’s important to consult a remodeling contractor for the best advice on proceeding with the project.
Cabinet refacing is the easiest, quickest, and least expensive option for a do-it-yourselfer and often requires no special tools or skills. If you’re looking to save money and have the room for the work, Cabinet Painting may be a viable option. However, many people do not prefer to paint their cabinets, citing health concerns or the difficulty in painting cabinets by hand. For these homeowners, refinishing kitchen cabinets is often a more affordable and simple choice.
Refinishing kitchen cabinets is fairly easy if you plan ahead and follow the manufacturers’ instructions carefully. Refinishing cabinet boxes involves removing the cabinet boxes and applying a fresh coat of paint. Cabinet boxes can be protected with glass inserts that make them easier to clean and protect the wood from scratches. This step of the remodeling process is also useful if you need to change the color of your boxes as well as the cabinet hardware since it is relatively easy to get the shades right. However, if you want to save time and money on this project, simply painting is usually the best choice.
