Trying to update kitchen while saving money on cabinets.
July 11, 2013
My house was built in 1998 - 1999 and I'm having trouble matching the original kitchen cabinets to expand the kitchen. Buying new cabinets for the expansion and refacing all of them is my best option so far.

Do you have any photos you can share of the kitchen? I've looked at refacing mine as well and found it to be surprisingly expensive. I think the quote was something like 40k and it's a SMALL kitchen.

Several years ago I went thru this dilemma... Found unfinished cabinet doors on line- wholesale that were pre drilled for euro hinges-I painted and bought hardware...- when the sizes didn't match up my existing cabinets exactly, I simply added trim to existing cabinet boxes to make it work and added new crown all around-- it was pretty labor intensive, but I went from dated 1980s doors to painted white shaker style cabinets that people assumed were all new cabinets for about $300!(plus hardware and paint) Can't recall name of supplier but if u do some searching u might find similar options...good luck!!
