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.
If your kitchen cabinets are fully functional, but the wood grain is turning pale grey from water damage or fading from years of direct sunlight, consider refinishing or retoning. Cabinet refinishing is a totally different approach than painting your cabinets. (Think natural wood stain vs. solid color. )
Refinishing is a great way to extend the life of your cabinets without the expense of replacement. Throw in some new knobs and pulls and… BOOM! Did you get a new kitchen?
1. They’re dull and faded from years of wear and tear.
2. They look outdated. Are your cabinets stuck in the 1980s?
That classic golden pecan finish was all the rage decades ago, but never came back into style. Cabinet Toning is a great way to update your finish and doesn’t require sanding, stripping, and re-staining.
3. Your kitchen needs a makeover, but you’re on a budget.
The estimated cost of replacing your cabinets can go as high as $30,000. Refinishing or re-toning your cabinets is just a small fraction of that cost and will make your kitchen look like new!
4. You’ll keep the rich, natural wood stain.
If you’re not crazy about painting solid colors over your wood cabinets, retouching and refinishing the traditional and timeless wood stain is a perfect option. You’ll increase the longevity of your kitchen, too!
5. You’ll add value to your home. It’s a simple upgrade that transforms a tired space and adds resale value, too.
