Springing for new cabinets doesn’t have to be your only option if you are looking to change the layout of your kitchen. A combination of cabinet refacing and “onesie-twosie” cabinets may be the solution for you.
Cabinet refacing consists of replacing your doors, drawer fronts and drawer boxes. This allows you to choose a completely new door style, thus giving your kitchen an entirely new look. Just by adding upgraded doors you’ve upgraded your kitchen and now have quality cabinets. The existing cabinet boxes are then covered with new wood veneer material making your existing cabinets look like they are brand new. A cabinet is basically a wooden box, the designer doors are what make the cabinets look so elegant!
The changes you are wanting to make to your kitchen are can be completed at the time of the reface process. Try to make the most of every square inch of your kitchen by making it user friendly. Installing roll-out shelves will really make your kitchen more efficient. You can achieve a clean and uncluttered look when you “hide” your kitchen appliances in cabinets instead of on your countertop. With roll-out shelves they are a lot more accessible. Make sure your roll-out shelves have full extension hardware so you can have complete availability.
Cabinet refacing also allows you to keep your existing countertop. Your countertop is not disrupted in the cabinet refacing process. This can save you money by not having to replace countertop at the time of the refacing. You can always replace your countertop at a later date.
If you are fortunate enough to have a large enough kitchen, you might considered adding an island to your project. Kitchen islands are very popular. You may incorporate a prep sink or a cooktop, thus allowing two cooks sharing meal preparation.
