Cabinet Refacing or New Cabinets?
Are you finding you have less and less kitchen storage space? Are you ready for a new kitchen cabinet style? How would you like to give your cabinets a new look while making them more functional?
Cabinet refacing makes this easy.
There are three main types of new kitchen cabinet styles available – stock, semi-custom and custom. Now, let’s have a look at each one of these.
* Modern stock kitchen cabinets come in a limited number of styles. This type of kitchen cabinet offers very basic storage elements like pullout trays and lazy Susans. The standard size in which they are built is 3 inches wide. Another advantage with stock cabinets is that they have seamless finishing. Wood fillers are used to join the new kitchen cabinets and your old ones. The cost of this type of L-shaped kitchen can be anywhere from $11-15,000.
* Semi-custom cabinets offer great flexibility in height, style, design, function and finish. They are a great deal more expensive than stock cabinets, but offer greater quality, design and flexibility. The cost of this type of cabinet can be more than $15,000.
* Custom kitchen cabinets offer the ultimate in flexibility. Prices range from $16,000 on up. The biggest advantage to custom kitchen cabinets is that you can choose your own shade, style and shape. There are absolutely no limitations.
