When thinking about remodeling your kitchen, you have 4 options:

1) new cabinets

2) paint

3) stain

4) cabinet refacing

If you need all new cabinets, then be prepared to use up your whole budget and then some. This may affect the amount of elements you can change in your kitchen (I.e., floor, backsplash, appliances, etc). But the results will be beautiful and you can change the layout if necessary.

Paint and stain are basically the same process. Requires removing all the doors and sanding them. You will need to sand the boxes as well. Then apply the paint or stain. If you're thinking this is a 1-day job, think again. Plus you will be stuck with the same style.

Refacing allows you to change all your doors and drawers for new. The cabinet boxes are veneered in the new color & material. All new doors, drawers and hardware are installed. Voila!

Add a matching island, pantry or interior storage like roll out shelves, lazy susan or tray dividers. Make it a whole new kitchen, inside and out! And save thousands just by using your existing cabinet boxes. Get back ten-fold what you invest. A whole new kitchen color and style.

Happy remodeling!
