In most cases, kitchen cabinets run from ceiling to floor, and are highlighted (and also help to highlight) countertops, flooring and other stand-out features.
For this reason, it's virtually unheard of for homeowners to keep the cabinets as-is and upgrade everything else. This would be sort of like replacing the carpet and all of your living room furniture, but leaving the 10-year old wall paint alone - scuffs, dings and all. It simply isn't done.
There are several benefits for upgrading the whole kitchen cabinet caboodle:
They look fantastic. What can we say? The difference between upgrading and not upgrading kitchen cabinetry when you're replacing things like countertops, flooring, backsplash and/or wall paint is noticeable. Even cabinets that look pretty darn great before a remodel can look a bit flat and worse-for-wear once everything else has been updated and made glamorous.
They wear better. Any high-quality new products will be stronger and more durable than older, worn products, especially the hinges and other hardware that begin to loosen, sag and gunk up over time. In the case of laminate cabinet finishes, the finish is so durable that you don't have to be as careful when cleaning the cabinet fronts and boxes, and they require far less maintenance than wood.
If you prefer solid wood cabinets, the finish can be selected to meet the level of the cabinet's use, so your cabinets retain their brand new glow regardless of how many kids and pets they come in contact with.
Warranty benefits. With new kitchen features comes both manufacturer's and builder warranties, which are nice insurance policies. Here at Kitchen Magic, we offer a Lifetime of Homeownership Warranty on many of our products; it is a guarantee worth investing in.
You have all kinds of options if you do move forward with all-new cabinet replacements. And, as we mentioned above, Kitchen Magic can work with just about any remodeling budget.
Custom Cabinetry. Custom cabinets are the ultimate in cabinet installations. They are uniquely designed to fit your household's unique kitchen design and layout. A timeless design should always be in the forefront of your mind when choosing the features and finishes, and new, custom cabinets are a high-end option made to last a lifetime.
Cabinet Refacing. This option is ideal for those who are 100% satisfied with their kitchen layout but are ready for a whole new look. From real wood doors to laminate options, the world of finishes is wide open. In addition to providing a brand new look for a fraction of the price, cabinet refacing is also considered an eco-friendly option because it saves a tremendous amount of waste from entering a landfill. For this reason, refacing is a popular option for those who are interested in a sustainable building design, as well as those on a medium- to lower-tier remodeling budget.
All of the Above. Often, our clients wind up building a few custom cabinets to accommodate any changes or additions to the current kitchen layout, or for cabinets that are unable to be refaced due to permanent damage. Then, they opt to reface the cabinetry that is in good shape, and in the right location, but is also in need of an update. This is known as our hybrid solution.
Customized Organization & Layouts Are the Perfect Finishing Touch!
Regardless of which cabinet type(s) you choose, you will always have the option to design your kitchen cabinets using innovative storage solutions and other unique features that improve the way your kitchen functions with respect to your household's needs.
