Cabinet refacing can be a good, cost-saving option for kitchen remodeling if the existing cabinets are well-constructed and in good shape, and where a radically different look is desired. It is also a good choice where the existing kitchen layout works well as it is. But where the existing cabinets have structural problems, or where hardware is in poor condition or internal storage features are lacking, you may be better off installing all-new cabinets.
Gracefully lilting S-curve moldings and cabriole legs are hallmarks of French design, rooted in Louis XIV furniture. Here the relaxed S curve shapes the mullioned doors of upper cabinets. Carved cabriole legs support the farmhouse sink as if it were a piece of furniture and help blend it in with the base cabinets. The island boasts characteristic French accents as well: Reeded molding bands the top edge, and the sinuous corner corbels are carved with traditional shells and bell flowers. The islands soft blue paint was sanded, crackled, and glazed with raw umber for an antique patina.
For a contemporary kitchen, forgo traditional cabinets in the darker-stained wood tones and go with color. Color cabinets are a great way to add personality to a kitchen. The best part is that certain painted cabinets can be repainted as needed without having to replace them. The boldest color choices today are not necessarily bright yellow or saturated primary colors. Today’s neutral colors make a big, modern-yet-classic statement like: grey, blue, white, taupe
How is refacing eco-friendly?
Kitchen cabinet resurfacing, or cabinet , has become a significant company in the last 10 years since it saves people money when they do not need to have all new chimney installed. It's also more eco-friendly because the timber is reused and simply updated and redone so there's absolutely no need for new wood or other things, except possibly some new hardware that won't negatively impact the environment.
