If your kitchen or bath reminds you of something straight out of The Brady Bunch, you might be ready for a change. With the New Year, it’s a perfect time to revamp a dated kitchen, bath or both. But if you don’t have the budget for a complete overhaul, how can you achieve a fresh look? The answer’s easy with cabinet refacing from N-Hance®.
Cabinet refacing is simply the process of replacing the doors and drawer faces and updating the side panels while keeping the cabinet boxes. When you update these features, you can get an entirely different look – one that’s more in line with current trends and your tastes – for a fraction of the cost of a full remodel. Not only that, but cabinet refacing also saves time and creates less mess.
So, whether you’re ready to bid goodbye to those avocado green cabinets that were all the rage in the 70s or those light oak cabinets that were so popular in the 80s, here are some easy tips for transforming your kitchen or bath into a 21st century dream:
Choose a Style that Matches the Rest of Your Kitchen or Bath
When it comes to cabinet refacing, you don’t want your new drawers and doors to clash with the décor that’s already in your kitchen or bath. So unless you’re planning a total overhaul that includes refinishing floors, replacing countertops, and repainting, then stick with a look that’s going to complement everything already there. To do that, consider a traditional or simple style that won’t appear dated in a few years. For instance, the classic lines and square shape of shaker style cabinets offer a timeless choice.
Choose a Color that Makes Sense for the Space
You’ll also want a color that accentuates the style you’ve chosen, as well as the rest of the décor in your kitchen or bath. So while you might have your heart set on ebony cabinets, for instance, if your walls are a chocolate brown and you don’t plan to paint them a lighter color, then your space will seem small and dark. Rather, it’s important to choose colors that harmonize with what’s already there.
Also, consider a color that’s ageless instead of trendy. While bright blue or cherry red might be a bold choice, how will those colors appear in just a few years? If you want to make a strong statement, do it through a different paint color, wallpaper, or other design choices that are easier and far less expensive to change than refacing cabinets.
Look for Inspiration Online
If you’re uncertain about style and color when it comes to your cabinet refacing project, look online for inspiration. Try to find images that match the size, other colors, and look of your existing space, so you can get a sense of the end result. If you find a style you love, don’t be afraid to borrow it!
Use High-Quality Materials
There are many different approaches to cabinet refacing. Some rely on refacing doors, drawers and cabinet boxes with thermofoil veneers. While this might seem attractive at first since it’s so affordable, it can present a problem down the line in terms of resale value. On top of that, veneers don’t stand up as well to daily wear and tear, making them susceptible to damage much sooner than you’d expect.
