Kitchen Cabinet. Sunday , February 04th , 2018 - 14:57:20 PM
Though you keep the existing cabinet boxes, you will need to replace the doors, drawer faces and side panels for the best overall match. While you‘re at it, you might want to consider replacing the hardware as well. A new style and look for the handles, moldings and hinges can be simple and inexpensive, and it will make a huge difference in the overall feel of the room. You can find new hardware at any home improvement store or your local mom and pop store that specializes in refacing. Although you can have the job done professionally, refacing your kitchen cabinets is generally a good DIY project. You will need to decide whether or not you want to do the job with laminate, rigid thermofoils (RTFs) or wood veneers.
Laminate is a highly processed, super-hard plastic that sticks to existing cabinet boxes with adhesive. You can buy this in sheets already coated with a self-stick adhesive; this is slightly more expensive, but also much more convenient and easier. As an alternative, you can apply the adhesive separately. Laminate is hard and durable, so it doesn‘t mold easily and can really only be used practically on very plainly styled cabinet boxes.
So how do you handle picking out the right cabinetry for the kitchen? The easiest way is to call a professional design firm. Kitchen and bath design professionals are a tremendous resource to homeowners shopping for just the right cabinetry — and to the builders and remodelers who need product selections completed.
