Kitchen Cabinet Refacing
By: Kevin Stith


Kitchen cabinets tend to bear the major brunt of cooking activities. The heat, grease, water, and food residue all take their toll and it is only a matter of time before you need to revitalize your kitchen. Buying new kitchen cabinets can prove to be an expensive option. Alternatively, you can think of refacing them as an ideal solution to give your kitchen a fresh new look.

The entire enterprise of refacing can prove to be constructive experience if you decide to let loose your creative urges and give the cabinets that unique distinctive touch that will define your kitchen. On the practical side, it will help to cut down the costs you would otherwise have to set aside for a professional contractor.

Refacing kitchen cabinets means replacing old doors with new ones as also sprucing up their framework. Doors are the most visible parts of the cabinets and choosing the ideal ones will require you to study the styles in the market. The three popular design options include reused panel, recessed panel, and slab door types. While wood is the obvious choice for doors, you can also consider style options such as glass front, bead board, or raised panel doors.

Instead of replacing doors, you can also think in terms of adding a veneer to them. Veneers come in many styles and finishes, and you can choose the one that blends beautifully with the tiles and the color of the walls of your kitchen.

If you feel up to the job, repainting can prove to be an interesting experience. After removing the doors, you?ll need to strip off the old paint and do a thorough cleaning of the surface. Here, you must remember cleaning before repainting is different from routine cleaning. If any grease or dust is left, you will not be able to apply the paint properly. Once this is done, you can begin painting. A spray paint is strongly recommended as it gives the best possible uniform coverage.
