Refacing Kitchen Cabinets – The Forgotten Update Option

One thing I hear a lot from my clients when walking through “updated” older homes is the remark that while granite countertops are nice, installing them on dated, older cabinets really is not appealing.  In my experience, a kitchen remodel needs to be an “all-or-nothing” kind of job.  The doesn’t mean you have to replace EVERYTHING, but each element of the kitchen should at least be touched or freshened up in some way.  And while everyone can’t afford all new custom cabinetry, refacing kitchen cabinets can certainly bring your kitchen forward and look exceptional.

Below is an article from HouseLogic about the basics of this job.  When done correctly, they can look just as good as a brand new set of cabinets, and at probably half of the cost!
