If your budget is limited and you desire to have a brand new look in your kitchen, a good way to save and still stay on budget is to simply replace the kitchen doors, instead of replacing with a whole new kitchen unit, and you get more savings if you know how to replace them.
The first step is to make a listing of all the kitchen cabinet doors, including drawer fronts and the number of door/drawer handles, and to measure the height and width of each door and drawer, making sure that the way to measure is the right approach starting at the back instead of at the front and noting all these down.
When you have the noted down all kitchen cabinet doors, drawers with their corresponding measurements, order all of these from your kitchen supplier and when they have arrived, check if there are any damages, so you can inform your supplier for a replacement.
Why No One Talks About Replacements Anymore
Thefirst thing to do is to remove the existing kitchen cabinet doors, unscrewing the hinges and one-by-one replacing each door and drawer with the new set, seeing to it that the existing doors and new ones have the same standard sizes and measurements; however, if you’re not sure about doing the fitting on the new doors by yourself, hire a carpenter or inquire from your kitchen supplier if they also offer installation service.
Discovering The Truth About Resources
When you ordered for new kitchen door/drawer handles, make sure that you have chosen quality items that can last longer, so once all the new kitchen doors and drawer fronts have been fitted well, you can now start with the fitting of the new handles, which should complete the transformation look of your kitchen. Kitchen cabinet door handles are not so expensive, so it is advisable that when you replace new kitchen doors or drawer fronts, you might as well purchase new handles, instead of saving the old ones, since fitting these old handles to your new kitchen cabinet doors may not give the right transformation look for the kitchen as the old handles may already be worn out.
As a summary, the process of replacing kitchen cabinet doors and drawer fronts, including the handles, is called cabinet refacing and this method can offer many benefits to achieving a new kitchen look, such as: savings on money, labor, time; procedure is less complicated; no wastage; several finishing options may be considered; provides a totally brand new kitchen look.
Comparing kitchen cabinet replacement to cabinet refacing, cabinet replacement takes many days to complete the task while cabinet refacing will only take a day or 2, for as long as the installation service is done by a professional installer.
