In simply wanting to achieve a different look or in trying to improve their home’s visual appeal, many homeowners seek cabinet refacing as an alternative to completely overhauling their kitchen. Refacing becomes necessary, however, when functionality, as well as structural integrity, become possible issues. As a well-known cabinet refacing expert, our team at The Kitchen Store would like to share some things you should watch out for, so you know if your kitchen needs cabinet refacing.
The veneer on your kitchen drawers and cabinets serves not only as a decorative layer but a protective one, as well. You can choose between plastic and wood veneer replacements, depending on how either material matches the rest of your kitchen. Paint jobs need to be done over, as well, particularly for storage units that were painted before the 80’s. The lead-filled paint was widely-used at the time and your home definitely needs to be protected from it.
At The Kitchen Store, we believe that even the smallest details can make or break the custom kitchen cabinets we build. Apart from the obvious look of disrepair that broken or missing hardware presents, the frustration of having to open drawers without the pulls and knobs can be overwhelming for any homeowner.
Loose or broken doors need to be replaced with fully functioning ones. This is not just a matter of taste but, more importantly, a matter of safety. It can also be a huge pain to try and work with drawers with broken fronts. You can, however, opt to have your cabinets converted to open shelving units instead.
