Why Modify Cabinets and Not Replace Them?

Kitchen renovations that include replacing your old cabinets are expensive. These renovations take more time and more money whereas cabinet modifications such as refinishing or re-facing save both time and money.

What Kind of Modifications Can I Make?

You have your existing cabinets refinished if all you want to do is change the color of the existing wood. Or, you may opt to completely update the door styles on your existing cabinetry. This is a major cost saver because it does not change the existing footprint of your kitchen.

You can also have the current hardware (handles, knobs, pulls) changed, including the location of where the hardware is mounted. For instance, you could replace a handle with a knob or vice versa.

You can have the interiors of your existing cabinets modified by adding dividers, pull-out shelves, pull-out trash/recycling containers or other conveniences. This is another economical update that can be made without completely replacing the cabinet in your kitchen.

The bottom line is that you can use cabinet modifications to save time and money while still updating the style and functionality of your kitchen.

Why trust house painters to refinish your cabinets?

The kitchen is the heart of the home, and cabinets are the most expensive and prominent feature in the kitchen.  Cabinet refinishing requires a unique set of skills and expertise. Regular painters may only paint cabinets occasionally, we refinish cabinets 5-6 days every week! And, we do much more than paint cabinets, we can change hinges and hardware, modify existing cabinets, replace doors and drawer fronts, etc.…

We have over 20 years of experience and we have the right equipment and use only the highest quality materials to produce outstanding results.  That’s why we guarantee our finishes for 5 years. Try getting a 5-year warranty on cabinets from a regular painter.


Cabinet Door/Drawer Front Replacement

If your doors and/or drawer fronts are too dated or too damaged to refinish, a good option may be to replace the applicable doors and drawer fronts if you are happy with the layout of the cabinets.  This is much less costly than replacing or refacing all of your cabinets since the base cabinets will not need to be changed only refinished. We will paint or glaze the base cabinets to match the doors and drawers.  We can help you choose the door and drawer style to work with your existing base cabinets, and we will paint and/or glaze them to create the look you choose for your cabinets. The new doors will include hidden, soft-close hinges for an updated look.  Install new knobs or pulls to complete the look you want.

Make Kitchen Spaces More Functional

One notable reason many homeowners invest in kitchen cabinet modifications is to make the spaces more functional. Kitchen remodels allow for optimization of kitchen layouts, helping you make the most of your storage and workspace and making it easier to cook the way you want. 

Kitchen remodels can include modifications such as adding task lighting, new countertop installations, and adding more cabinet shelves. All these modifications make kitchens more functional spaces while improving the overall look.

Create More Comfortable Kitchen Spaces

We know that the kitchen is a popular meeting place, so we work with homeowners to make their kitchen a more welcoming and accessible space. Some of the ways you can do this are by installing stylish step stools, ceiling-ladder cabinet lifts, vertical shelving slots, and pull-out shelving solutions. These modifications help create a better sense of flow throughout the kitchen and declutter the space to optimize kitchen user comfort.

Kitchen Options that Add More Storage Space

When a lot of people think about their dream kitchen, it’s not just about shining countertops or a fancy backsplash — it’s also about storage. Kitchen cabinet modification options like extending the cabinets up to the ceiling and installing pull-out shelving to create a more organized, less cluttered kitchen that’s easier to use and keep clean. 

In addition, cabinet modifications such as drawer organizers, built-in lazy susans or wine racks, and pull-out shelves offer simple but effective ways to increase overall kitchen storage space. The benefits? You’ll get to organize your kitchen, minimize cluttering, and optimize efficiency.

Update Kitchen Styles and Looks

Most kitchen cabinet modifications make kitchens more stylish and modern. The best benefit that comes with kitchen cabinet modifications is that you can choose the decor and style to add to your kitchen, so you’re sure to create the most beautiful and stylish kitchen looks without going overboard in terms of costs.

Quality cabinets can go a long way toward making your kitchen more functional, spacious, and stylish. Contact Colours Cabinet Refinishing to discuss your kitchen renovation ideas and see how we can help!
