A bathroom or kitchen renovation will increase your personal enjoyment of the space and increase your home’s value. In fact, kitchen renovations offer one of the best returns on investment compared to other home renovations. In fact, you can expect to recoup over 80.5% of your renovation costs at resale, according to Remodelling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value Report for 2019, and that is for a minor kitchen remodel.
The biggest component of your kitchen or bathroom renovation will be the cabinets. A full cabinet replacement can be very expensive, but you don’t have to spend that fortune for a freshly upgraded kitchen. A professional painting company can paint your kitchen cabinets to give them a totally new and modern look.
What is cabinet refinishing?
Cabinet refinishing is when you simply change the finish and/or colour of your cabinet doors, drawer fronts and other exterior portions but you keep the same cabinet boxes. In essence, it’s painting your cabinets. You can do this if your cabinet boxes are still in good shape. This process will give your kitchen a totally new look, add value to your home and will cost you less than a quarter of the price of a full cabinet replacement. Plus, refinishing your existing cabinetry is better for the environment since no waste will be thrown into a landfill!
The cabinet refinishing process:
A cabinet refinishing company will remove all of your cabinet doors, drawer fronts and exterior panels making sure to label them for when it’s time to put them back on. They will also remove all hardware from your doors and drawer fronts.
Your panels will be carefully washed and sanded before receiving a primer and paint or stain. These professionals have experience in home design and can help you choose a finish that will best match your wall colour and other features in your kitchen.

Then your panels will have to dry and cure before they are re-installed. Once they are put back onto the cabinet boxes the hardware will be installed. Replacing your dated hardware is a cost-effective way to upgrade your cabinets even further.
This process will take less than a week and you’ll have a totally upgraded, beautiful new kitchen or bathroom!
