Updating a kitchen is on most people’s dream home wish list. While completely renovating a kitchen can lead to lots of take out dinners, refacing kitchen cabinets is a quick and much simpler way to add an update to your kitchen.
Kitchen renovation costs can be one of the biggest renovation costs to your home, and for good reason. For most of us, the kitchen is the heart of the home. This is where our families spend time cooking, eating, and where we tend to gather when we have company over.
So how do you know when it’s the right time to reface your kitchen cabinets? First of all, if the cost of kitchen renovations seems a little intimidating to your budget right now, refacing kitchen cabinets is a great way to update your kitchen at a much smaller cost. Completely replacing kitchen cabinets can add up to 50% of your overall kitchen remodeling costs. Refacing is a fraction of the cost and can consist of refinishing or painting kitchen cabinets and drawers, installing new wood or laminate veneer over doors and drawers, or installing new doors and drawer fronts onto your existing cabinet boxes.
If you are happy with the overall placement of your cabinets and the space they give you, there is no need in adding on more cost to do a custom cabinet installation. You love your countertops and floor, so all you really need is a touch up to your cabinets. Refacing is a non-intrusive way to update your home. You and your family can continue to use your kitchen while your cabinets are getting a quick facelift.
Let’s say you are interested in a whole kitchen remodel. Refacing cabinets is still a great option to include in your plan. If you can reface your existing cabinets, it may leave some room in your budget to add additional cabinets or pantry space.
