You’ve decided that it’s finally time to upgrade the kitchen, but do not want to break the bank doing so. The largest and most often the most expensive component of a kitchen renovation is the kitchen cabinets. Installing all new custom cabinets or even stock cabinets can be an expensive endeavor, but you can give your kitchen a fresh and trendy look using the wood cabinets you already have with cabinet refinishing.
What is cabinet refinishing?
Platinum Pro Painters in Calgary offers cabinet refinishing services. Cabinet refinishing is when you keep your cabinet boxes, doors and drawer fronts, but simply change the colour of finish of all exposed panels. Typically, this is completed by first sanding the wood cabinet doors, drawer fronts and side panels to strip the existing finish from the wood before applying new paint or stain. Cabinet refinishing can save you thousands of dollars compared to a full cabinet replacement. Learn the best way to paint your kitchen cabinets.
Can I refinish the cabinets in my kitchen?
Cabinet refinishing is a good choice if your wood cabinets are still generally in good shape and you are happy with the layout of your kitchen. For example, kitchens built with older honey oak in the 1980s and 1990s are a good candidate for cabinet refacing. That look has gone out of style and perhaps the wood scratched and faded, but the cabinets are made of a quality, strong material that can be easily refinished to beautiful, on-trend cabinetry.
If you have laminate or thermofoil cabinets, you obviously can’t sand them down and refinish them the way you would wood cabinets. Depending on the material, you might still be able to have your cabinets painted. Platinum Pro Painters can help determine if your cabinets can be painted or refinished.
