Some of the highest quality cabinets out there are replaced not because there are issues with the structure, but because the homeowner no longer likes the look and design. If you have bathroom, kitchen or other cabinetry in your home that you tolerate, rather than love, there are ways you can change the look while keeping the quality cabinetry. This is done by investing in cabinet refacing.
This is the process of replacing cabinet doors, the door fronts, and the hardware and then applying an all-new veneer to the parts that are externally visible. Rather than breaking down the entire cabinet and installing all-new ones, you can reface them – saving time and money.
One of the main reasons this process is so popular is because of the many benefits it offers, which can be found here.
Generally speaking, cabinet refacing costs approximately 50 percent less than what you would spend on brand new cabinets. Regardless of where you choose to use cabinet refacing, you’ll find you can save quite a bit of money. Usually, cabinets that appear dull and drab are actually in pretty good condition. If you are satisfied with the current layout of the cabinet and only want to provide a minor face-lift, then refacing is the ideal solution. You may waste quite a bit of money if quality cabinets are taken out and all new ones are installed.
Replacing cabinets is a rather large task that can take several days to complete. You will have to make changes to your entire schedule and plan carefully before replacing the cabinets in your home. However, with cabinet refacing, you can have the task finished in just a few days (at most), as long as you hire the right person or company for the job.
If you have cabinets that are in pretty good condition, there isn’t any reason you should have them removed. They will probably just wind up in landfills and contribute to the accumulation of hazardous waste. Also, you will have to spend much more money on all new cabinets.
When you choose cabinet refacing, you have a few options to choose from. There are some companies that only refinish the exterior of drawers and cabinets, without removing the fronts of the drawers or the doors. In these situations, you can have a veneer applied on the outside and have all new pulls and knobs installed. With either option, your cabinet will still wind up looking brand new.
As you can see, there are more than a few benefits offered by refacing your cabinets rather than replacing them. It’s a good idea to work with a custom cabinet maker to ensure that you get the look and style you want for a much more affordable price and a faster turnaround time. This is going to pay off and leave you satisfied with the end results. Contact Custom Cabinets by Lawrence today.
