Kitchen Cabinets in St. Louis
Serving the Greater St. Louis Area, including St. Charles MO and St. Peters MO.
What new looks are most popular?
Raised panel and Shaker style doors are two of the most popular options today. It doesn’t matter if you want a classic white kitchen, contemporary maple, or elegant cherry hardwood… all options are available with kitchen cabinet refacing in St. Louis.
Soft-close hardware comes standard with your cabinet refacing in St. Louis (soft-close drawer glides are optional). You can shorten a cabinet for an over-the-range microwave, add roll-out shelves, a lazy susan, etc… your options are endless. Anything you can put in a new kitchen can be added to a refacing job.
How long does refacing take?
Homeowners are thrilled to learn that most kitchens can be completed in 3-5 days. Homeowners are even able to use their kitchen in the morning and evening during the refacing process. Compared to a total kitchen remodel, kitchen cabinet refacing can be easy and stress-free, since you won’t have to eat take-out for a month or longer while your kitchen is out of commission.
What about painting or refinishing as an alternative?
Painting cabinets often requires an enormous amount of work such as degreasing, sanding, and two or more coats of paint. We have found that within 1-2 years paint has the tendency to chip around door edges. Refinishing cabinets requires even more labor than repainting.
From the standpoint of cost-effectiveness, refacing your cabinets will cost you about the same amount as refinishing but with refacing you are adding the new finish to your cabinet boxes as well as changing the doors to any new style you desire. Painting and refinishing use the existing door style, so neither option will update the look of your kitchen as drastically as refacing your cabinets and adding new quartz countertops or new granite countertops in St. Louis. To sum it up, painting and refinishing are costly band aids that will not last as long as refacing, nor will they add as much to the resale value of your home.
