As customers review options to upgrade their kitchen, they often look at either tearing out the old cabinetry or cabinet refinishing old dated cabinets. The effort and expense of removing old cabinetry is quickly realized once the estimates arrive. This is why many of our customers have chosen to refinish their cabinets. Most cabinets are made with woods that are easily refinished, so why go through a major renovation that can take weeks or longer. Refinishing is relatively straight forward with everything staying intact, including appliances. And yes, you can even use your kitchen during the process!
It all begins with reviewing your current cabinets and providing a door sample with your desired color. Cabinetry is stripped and refinished, which allows for a variety of wood tone colors or as example a paint color to be used such as White or Bone. All the cabinets are custom colored, so if glazing is also desired that can easily be achieved.
Once the color is selected, your doors and drawers are picked up and brought back to our facility to be stripped and colored to your specifications. While these doors and drawers are at the shop, a crew will work onsite to prepare your kitchen so that the face frames and side panels can be colored the same as your doors and drawers. The onsite activities typically are around 2-3 days depending on the size of the kitchen or if any millwork will be added. To enhance the kitchen, many customers like to add crown molding or light rail to the cabinetry, or even add solid wood raised panels to the end panels of cabinets.
Once the onsite work is completed, we bring back your doors and drawers and install them using existing or new hardware in usually about a half day.
So with a new color and potential new upgrades like crown molding and hardware, your kitchen will look beautiful without the high costs of cabinet replacement!
