Increasingly, we are getting the question about utilizing our clients’ existing cabinetsversus installing new ones. While it is hard to pass up the new features offered by today’s cabinetry (Blumotion soft closing drawers, lazy susans and utility lifts, to name a few), cabinet re-styling is an option and oftentimes can save money. In order to consider re-facing your cabinets, you must make sure your cabinets pass the test:
- Your existing cabinets are not too old
- The frames are in good shape
- The finish on the frame can be modified – you will want the new doors and drawer fronts to match the existing frames
If you think your cabinets qualify for a makeover versus a do-over, discuss this option with your kitchen remodeler.
