Homeowners who are considering changing the color of their cabinets from wood to white or who just want to update their doors to match their existing cabinets may consider a simple cabinet drawer replacement or front door replacement. There are lots of door styles to choose, from a simple flat door to a raised panel. Do keep in mind that door styles with miter joints and applied mouldings tend to be quite pricey. The wood doors used in a front door and cabinet drawer replacement are quality, solid wood.
Replacing Wood Doors during Cabinet Drawer Replacement.
It can be a bit more tricky if the existing wood doors have exposed (exterior) hinges and the homeowner simply wants to replace wood doors with new, updated wood doors because the hinge holes may remain slightly visible. Patching the holes will make them less noticeable but will not cover completely. But if a customer has European style (interior) hinges the cabinet door replacement is not an issue. The existing hinges will be replaced with Blum hinges, a brand known for their quality.
But if a homeowner is interested in a white or painted kitchen this problem can be resolved by a simple coat of spackle and paint! Changing from wood cabinets to white or painted cabinets can be achieved two ways: First, order the new custom doors in a paint grade material and paint the cabinet boxes to match. The cabinets and new doors and drawer fronts can be painted any color the homeowner desires. Second, the cabinet doors and drawer fronts are ordered in a deco-form material style door that is virtually maintenance free. Paint tends to chip and peel but not with the deco-form doors. Paint is matched to the deco door, cabinets are then painted and the new doors and drawer fronts are installed.
Crown moulding can be supplied and installed to truly finish off the cabinet drawer replacement update. This is a great time to add new knobs and pulls. Hardware is like jewelry for cabinetry, and the right pieces can make your new cabinet door and drawer front replacement shine!
