Kitchen cabinets are probably the most important part of the entire space both in terms of functionality and impact on the room’s design and in 2015 more homeowners than ever are projected to look into kitchen cabinet remodeling projects as a major part of their kitchen remodeling project or as their single, focused way of updating the look and reliability of their kitchen without having to spend an arm and a leg on getting the job done. As you may expect, with so much demand for kitchen cabinet services, there’s now an abundance of different options, styles, colors, and types of kitchen cabinet remodeling services which homeowners can consider to best suit their particular budget, style, and schedule. This wide variety of different cabinet remodeling jobs is hugely beneficial to homeowners hoping to achieve different looks in their home’s busiest room but can often be confusing for homeowners planning their cabinet remodel moving forward. For just that reason, consider these major cabinet remodeling options for your home’s particular project.
Kitchen Cabinet Repair
As the primary means of storage in your kitchen, your cabinets endure a lot of wear and tear simply from being used as they should. As a result, in many cases where homeowners are looking to keep their existing style of cabinet while updating the look and reliability of the room as a whole, professionally performed cabinet repairs are the best option available. These services can include everything from replacing broken panes of glass to renewing the worn edges and shelves of your cabinets with new materials quickly and often more affordably than any other kitchen cabinet remodeling option. In fact, for the most savings on cabinet repairs homeowners can even consider performing the repair work on their own in some cases!
Kitchen Cabinet Refacing
Homeowners happy with the condition and structure of their kitchen cabinets but less than satisfied with the style those cabinet offer to the kitchen as a whole can count on cabinet refacing as a quick, affordable way to refresh the look and feel of your kitchen cabinets by equipping them with an entirely new cabinet door and exterior surface. This is an excellent way to save money on expensive kitchen remodeling projects since it effectively presents a brand new set of kitchen cabinets to anyone gathering in your home without requiring the time, money, and stress of completely removing and replacing your existing cabinets with brand new ones. This is particularly helpful in situations where a dramatic change, like switching from laminate cabinet doors to wood or even glass ones is desired as professional kitchen remodeling contractors can majorly alter the look of your kitchen simply by changing out the material of your cabinet doors for a more stylish and customized alternative.
Kitchen Cabinet Refinishing
Unlike cabinet refacing, kitchen cabinet refinishing is a specialized service which doesn't change the materials used in your cabinets, but instead refreshes, reinvigorates, and recolors your existing cabinet doors, leaving your kitchen looking like new in just a few hours in many cases. This is done by a series of customized services including cleaning, hardware updating, thorough sanding, restaining, and repainting to lend your existing cabinets a new life. That said, cabinet refinishing is only a possibility on select material types because of the tasks involved in the process. However, like cabinet refacing, cabinet refinishing is a very cost-effective and schedule-friendly alternative to removing your existing kitchen cabinets and installing brand new ones in their place. Consider this option for your kitchen if you’re interested in returning to the style you enjoyed when you first moved into your home or if you’re looking to restain or repaint your cabinets primarily.
Kitchen Cabinet Replacement
For the most complete and customized improvement on your kitchen cabinets, there’s nothing better than a complete removal of your existing cabinetry followed by installation of new, custom-made kitchen cabinet replacements. These services, while more expensive than the other alternatives mentioned in this comparison, allows professionally trained specialists to help you design the specific kitchen cabinets that are best suited to your personalized dream kitchen. What’s more, you can substantially reduce the cost of replacement kitchen cabinets by performing the removal of the existing boxes on your own, though be sure to have a clear understanding of your ideal cabinet design and available budget prior to making this decision.
