Kitchen Cabinet Refacing Saves Time & Money
Refacing your kitchen can be easy, and The Kitchen and Bath Factory wants to help make it a fun and pleasurable experience for you. Many of today’s homeowners prefer refacing their existing cabinetry. They don’t have the time and often don’t wish to make such a large investment in their kitchen.
So, before you begin, it’s a good idea to decide on the scope and magnitude of the update you want. There’s no sense in doing a complete makeover if you are happy with the basic layout of your existing kitchen. We’ll help you through all the steps, from design choices to completion of the project.
Replace Your Cabinets or Reface Them?
Functionality should dictate the form of your kitchen. If you want to change the location of your cabinetry, then replacing it may be preferable to refacing. (We also install new kitchens if you prefer to go this route)
Installing a new kitchen can be a daunting project. It is disruptive to family lifestyle. Even the best-planned construction project can obstruct the normal use of your kitchen for 1- 2 months or more. Testy and unfavorable conditions, even for the most tolerant and patient kitchen homeowner.
If you’re happy with the existing layout and workability of your kitchen, then, refacing your current cabinetry and adding some functional accessories is better. Refacing your current cabinetry can transform your kitchen into a showcase you and your family will enjoy and your friends will think that you’ve installed completely new ones!
What are the benefits of kitchen cabinet refacing?
- Old cabinets are often of better quality construction than those made by today’s standards.
- You can save a substantial amount by Updating Your Cabinetry. Often from 30 to 70% over the cost of new.
- Your existing cabinetry is already installed, leveled, plumbed, and operational. These can be difficult conditions to duplicate in the labor-intensive chore of installing new cabinet.
- Dust dirt and noise usually permeates the rest of your home, even when careful steps are taken to prevent it.
- Installing new cabinetry will entail the dismantling of your existing kitchen. That will require that you set up a temporary kitchen facility in another part of your home. Utilities may need to be shut off completely.
- Dismantling existing cabinetry can cause serious damage to existing fixtures, walls, electrical systems, and plumbing. This results in even more expense.
- You can save the hidden costs of installation, delivery, taxes, by updating your cabinetry versus installing new.
- Refacing returns up to 90% of your investment if you sell your home.
- Typically, refacing is a 3-5 day process vs. 1-2 months for a new kitchen.
