Cabinet Refacing Budget Tips

Establish A Budget
List everything you expect to include in your new dream kitchen, from electrical and plumbing upgrades to new flooring, windows and appliances. Then, as a rule of thumb, add 20% to the estimates so you can cover any unexpected changes.

Determine Your Kitchen Needs - Do you entertain a lot?

How many people are in your family? Are there any physically challenged people who use the kitchen? Do you want an eat-in area? Do you need a lot of storage space or countertops for food preparation? How many food prep or cooking workstations do you need that require a sink, faucet and special accessories?

Most wooden cabinets are still solid and in great shape.

Most wooden cabinets are still solid and in great shape.
Refacing gives your existing cabinets a face lift. That face lift can include from all-wood cabinet door and drawer fronts to new thermo-foil laminates. Styles go from California inspired sleek, streamlined fronts to traditional, raised and even glass doors.

Determining the kitchen layout
There are many kitchen layouts from which to choose when installing new cabinets, and normally none when doing cabinet refacing; however, when choosing cabinet refacing additional cabinets, drawers, storage and islands can be added. Are you moving walls and doorways and making any structural room changes? Are you keeping your existing room layout? Ask your new kitchen cabinet or cabinet refacing dealer to show you the few basic kitchen layouts when you meet.

Kitchen Measurements
Your kitchen cabinet refacing or new cabinet dealer will take measurements to determine design requirements and the number of cabinet doors or cabinets boxes. The contractor will sketch out your kitchen layout using a pencil and graph paper. Indicate where windows, electrical outlets, appliances, sink and gas pipes are located.
