Kitchen Cabinets

When planning a kitchen remodel, budget will probably be the most important fact. The second area of concern is the type of finish. You may ask yourself, “Should I stain or paint?”
“Should I start with the walls or the cabinets?” “Will our investment in remodeling be worth it if we decide to sell?” Don’t miss the chance to improve your kitchen, the center of your home. Eighty percent of all entertainment happens in the kitchen. Painting cabinets, costs far less than outright replacement. Bargain-basement cabinets for a 10×12-ft. kitchen can easily top $5,000, not including the cost of installation or new counters, and your new cabinets may be of lower quality than the ones you’re getting rid of. Refacing cabinets, a process of veneering existing cabinet boxes and replacing doors and drawer fronts, is another option, but a top-notch refacing job starts at $8,500. Lately the prices of re-painting has been a 3rd of the cost to re-facing. Painting cabinets allows the customer to be creative with stencils, aging and distressing, wax or varnish, colors, images, the list goes on. Plus you would also have the ability to add architectural features to the cabinets like, trim, dental molding, extend the cabinets to the ceiling, and crown molding.

“A designer recommended John to paint our kitchen. Once we looked at his website and the type of work we saw, we didn’t think we could afford him. The contract price was less expensive than re-facing! He cleaned up after he worked each day and in two weeks we never felt like he was intruding on our space!
– Niki & Tad Newell, Warrenton, VA
