A kitchen renovation will increase your personal enjoyment of the space and increase your home’s resale value. Kitchen renovations offer one of the best returns on investment compared to other home renovations. In fact, you can expect to recoup over 80.2% of your renovation costs at resale, according to Remodelling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value Report for 2017, and that is for a minor kitchen remodel.

A full kitchen cabinet replacement can be very expensive, but you don’t have to spend that fortune for a freshly upgraded kitchen.

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. 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:

When you hire a company that offers kitchen cabinet painting in Calgary, they 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 spray priming and then a sprayed lacquer finish of your choice. You can choose a clear-coat or coloured lacquer. In most cases, a cabinet refinishing company will have experience in home design, if not employ their own professional designers, and can help you choose a finish that will best match your wall colour and other features in your kitchen.

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! Posted by Liv Real Estate on
