When you are ready to finish your cabinets, many people make the mistake of thinking that they need to be completely ripped out and replaced. Often, the structure of the cabinets is fine and your either need to have the doors replaced or refinished to completely update the look of your kitchen.
Usually, it’s the doors that date a kitchen. Refinishing the doors or refacing, which is replacing doors, can save you between 60-75%. Refinishing is usually ¼ the price of replacing and refacing is about 1/3 the cost of replacing cabinets.
If you’re thinking about putting your home on the market, the kitchen can make or break the sale. You can spend $5,000 on refinishing and turn your kitchen into a $20,000 kitchen.
And you can make some functional changes to your cabinetry even when you’re just replacing doors. A good idea is to extend cabinets to the ceiling to add storage space for items that you just use once a year. This gets them out of your every-day storage space, giving you more room for the things you use all the time. We can also reorganize your pantry. By adding full extension pull-outs, we can help you get control of the clutter and actually see what’s in the back of the shelf.
