Want to give your kitchen a facelift, quickly and affordably? Opt to reface your cabinets.
Cabinet refacing allows you to choose a new door and drawer front style, a different color, a dramatic finishing technique, and new hardware. Best of all? It takes far less time and money than a complete kitchen renovation.
Here’s more detail on the four biggest benefits of refacing your cabinets.
Benefit #1: Less Mess & Disruption
Anytime you make upgrades to your home, you know it’s going to disrupt your life to some degree. However, when you opt to reface cabinets instead of replacing them, your down time will be kept to a minimum.
In fact, within just a few days, your kitchen cabinets can go from dated, worn out, and scuffed up to looking like they’re brand new. This is a dramatic contrast to the weeks it takes to tear out old cabinets and replace them with completely new ones.
When you choose to reface cabinets, you’ll still have access to your kitchen during the renovation. You can still use your appliances with minimal inconvenience, so you can make lunches, cook dinner and get your morning coffee. While access may be limited, you won’t be without a kitchen for months like you would be with a full remodel. Additionally, you’ll have your kitchen back to full working order much faster – usually just a few days.
When you choose N-Hance® to reface cabinets, your drawers and door fronts are removed off-site to be painted or stained, while your cabinet boxes remain. These will then be repaired, where needed, and painted or stained the same color on-site.
Benefit #2: Lower Cost
When your cabinet boxes remain in place, you’re going to save quite a bit versus a full cabinet replacement. You’ll simply need to invest in new doors and drawer fronts and the painting or staining of the boxes to match. You can even retain the same hardware, or upgrade if you prefer.
This all translates into less time, less labor, fewer supplies, and a much lower cost when compared to a complete renovation.
Benefit #3: More Choices
A kitchen renovation project is full of choices. When you go with a complete renovation the choices are endless. However, renovations come with a hefty price tag, a lengthy time commitment, and a boatload of hassle.
On the other end of the kitchen renovation spectrum, is cabinet painting. This option is far more affordable and will typically be done much faster. However when you choose cabinet painting, the only change you can make is to the color of your cabinets.
With cabinet refacing, you get the best of both worlds. You can choose a totally different look and color for your cabinet door and drawer fronts, all for a fraction of the cost of replacing them. If your current cabinets are more traditional, you can opt for modern or Shaker cabinets. If you want to add flourishes, like beadboard or crown molding, you can select from a range of options. In terms of paint colors and stains, you’re only limited by your imagination.
In addition, with cabinet refacing, you can still add little flourishes to your kitchen to further personalize the end result. For instance, you can upgrade to a pull out trash and recycle cabinet next to your kitchen sink. You can also upgrade the moving parts, such as by adding soft close drawer slides.
Benefit #4: Boosted Home Value
When you have cabinets that look fresh and new thanks to refacing, you’ll increase your home value. This is always a plus whether you plan to stay in your home a while or put it on the market.
If you do, you’ll be able to recoup far more of your investment than with a full cabinet replacement. You’ll also likely get a higher final offer with cabinets that are updated. In fact, your kitchen is one area where upgrades almost always payoff.
Of course, on top of all this, you’ll have beautiful cabinets that look like they were just installed from the factory. This will improve the look of your kitchen and your quality of life in it, especially if your cabinets are out of date or damaged.
Another benefit? With refacing, you’ll have more room left in your budget to purchase new lighting or other decor, paint the walls, or add that tile backsplash you’ve always wanted. It’s an excellent and versatile way to get a dramatic transformation while still being budget-friendly.
