Updating your kitchen doesn’t mean paying for completely new cabinetry! The cost for prefab or custom cabinets can make a serious dent in your wallet. Plus, the process of building custom cabinetry is a big undertaking, causing a disruption in your daily home life.
You choose the style. The beauty of this process is that you sit in the driver’s seat, completely controlling your kitchen’s makeover. If you’re decidedly against painting white (because even though they’re beautiful, keeping white cabinets clean is a struggle!), here are some other brilliant color options to choose.
It’s efficient. Compared to waiting for custom-built cabinetry or a tear down and new installation, repainting is a faster process! Depending on the size of your kitchen, it can take less than five days.
It’s more convenient. We totally understand how important your kitchen is to the flow and function of your home. Painting your cabinets is a much less intrusive method than a total replacement.
