You already know all of the reasons why your current kitchen design isn’t working for you overall or in-part. But, if you need that extra push to move forward with updating your kitchen, the 2019 Remodeling Impact Report from the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) reveals that 74% of those surveyed have an increased sense of enjoyment when they are home since completing their remodeling project. Not only that, but 78% also feel a major sense of accomplishment when they think about their kitchen remodel. With a huge portion of the kitchen-remodeling budget often going towards cabinetry, cabinet refacing offers homeowners an affordable alternative, with a multitude of transforming options.
Change Up Your Kitchen Cabinet Colors and Styles
Kitchen Magic's wide variety of cabinet doors — including our beautiful maintenance-free laminate, wood and glass-insert door styles — allow homeowners to take your kitchen design from outdated to modern, transitional or contemporary. Solid wood cabinets can be finished in various glazes and stains, resulting in inspiring hues that can easily be incorporated into your kitchen's new or existing color palette. And, maintenance-free laminate cabinet doors offer an affordable alternative with nearly limitless style options that will enhance any style kitchen.
Change Your Cabinet Function to Fit Your Needs
While many homeowners work mostly within the existing footprint of their kitchens, cabinet refacing does not limit you where functionality is concerned. Consider updating an island with a sink or built-in cooktop. On the other hand, a kitchen peninsula can help define your space and provide additional surface area for serving or dining. Incorporate open shelving where a traditional cabinet used to reside, and you will have a focal point as well as utilitarian storage!
Refacing Lets You Swap Doors for Drawers…and More!
Our new door styles and colors have been elevating the possibilities for cabinet refacing as a kitchen remodel foundation, but what’s behind the doors and drawers can transform your everyday kitchen too. Instead of a lower cabinet that’s hard to reach, refacing allows you the option to things up and install a large drawer for pots and pans instead. A lot of homeowners don't know is that refacing can allow you to switch up the combinations of drawers and doors within the cabinet boxes affordably, says Suzi Dia, Kitchen Consultant at Kitchen Magic. “People don’t realize that with refacing, we save and reuse the cabinet box, and we can reconfigure within that box. So you usually can mix and match cabinets and drawers, or change up the drawer sizes to create better storage solutions.”
