Let me start this article by asking you: Why refacing your kitchen cabinets is a lot better than replacing them? Well, actually this one need not be applicable to all. Before you decide on having such remodeling in the kitchen, you must carefully evaluate first its needs. For one, cabinet refacing only works well with kitchens having sturdy cabinets and drawers, which only need a little furnishing in the coverings. However, if the situation is in a different state, which means having rotten woods or platforms destroyed by termites, then it is a different story. Now let us go back to the question and tackle the reasons one by one.
What do I mean by “less time” in the subtitle? Literally, it means lesser working days for construction. Cabinet refacing actually takes place faster compared to having all of the cases replaced. Replacement may take two weeks or a month to finish. With refacing, on the other hand, it only takes a week or less and – voila! – your kitchen cabinets looking very crisp and modern. And do you know how significant time is for your financial benefit? The lesser time spent, the lesser money you have to give away. Bear in mind that you work with two or three installers (depending on the size of your kitchen) whom you need to pay in an hourly rate. You’d be able to save with refacing most definitely.
Less Money Spent
Imagine paying up to $4000 to $5000 for replacing all your old kitchen cabinets with new ones. Suppose you found the amount so-so – well, maybe you can afford it and that it perfectly fits with your budget, wouldn’t you be interested to know about how much you can possibly spend with cabinet refacing? For all you know, the latter is a lot cheaper than the former. Why? Because it requires less work and less material. Refacing only requires half the budget of cabinet replacement from your bank account. Imagine saving 50%! You’d rather choose plan B than A, right?
You need to find a place where you can safely store your kitchen utensils while the cabinet replacement is being done. You need to tear out old cabinets to vacate some space for the new ones. These are just some of the disadvantages upon having your cabinet replaced. While construction takes most of the time, clearing away of cases and transferring of containers do the same. Wouldn’t it be great if the mentioned things all stay in place? This is what cabinet refacing offers you – convenience at its finest. You only have to focus on how the installers transform the coverings of your cabinet to look spanking new.
Less Evil To The Environment
Lastly, you are able to contribute to the well-being of the environment. By not throwing away your old cabinets you somehow become an advocate to the betterment of the planet. You do not add up to the wastages in landfill areas. If you look at the bigger picture, cabinet refacing is a much better option than having them completely replaced. Think green.
