We have been working on kitchen remodeling projects for over two decades now. Over the years, we see more and more people being cost-conscious when it comes to how they want to upgrade their kitchen. Some people are willing to invest heavily and do a complete kitchen remodel from top to bottom. Others, look for practical ways to refresh and upgrade their kitchen being creative and as cost-conscious as possible.
One area we see a lot of discussion these days is centered around your kitchen cabinets. The question that comes up most often is should you replace your kitchen cabinets or should you simply paint or resurface them.
It's a great question and definitely one that requires some discussion. Because your kitchen gets into missing amount of use and experiences significant where in tear over the years, you will find paint fades stains rise up and chips or dings are prevalent. Some people like this look because using some of this aging is a decorative finish in many peoples eyes. In this case, you might want to simply refinish or resurface your existing cabinets to maintain the one in look that you have.
The thing to remember is you have to like your kitchen cabinet designs in order to keep them for many years to come. If you are not happy with the design and are really looking for a complete refresh, you might want to consider doing a complete kitchen cabinet upgrade.
If you are to consider painting your kitchen cabinets yourself, obviously you're going to save a substantial amount of money. You're only cost will be in the paint and preparation materials and likely will be under $500. If you were to consider hiring a company to paint and resurfacer cabinets for you, expect to pay $5000-$6000. If you decided to do a full replacement, expect to spend 15,000 $30,000 or even more.
Our experience is about half of the people we talk to in the Clifton Park area, simply want to get rid of what they currently have an upgrade. They figure that they have enough equity in the house with rising home costs to warrant taking a home equity loan to pay for the kitchen remodel upgrade.
If you are a more cost conscious person, we definitely would recommend considering doing a simple repainting or resurfacing of your kitchen cabinets.
