It’s Spring – is it time to reface or replace those old kitchen cabinets? Say “yes”. (Didn’t that feel good?!) Clean Earth Restorations reminds you that we are a full-service general contractor and one of San Diego’s top kitchen remodeling companies.
Remodeling or replacing kitchen cabinets is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to completely change the look and feel of your kitchen without making other major changes. The two main options are:
- Refacing: replacing only the front of the cabinets while keeping the cabinet body
- Installing new: completely replacing existing cabinetry
Refacing is often the most economical choice, while still allowing the possibility to change color and style for a new look. Installing new cabinets offers the widest variety of choice and may be what you need if your current cabinet bodies are in poor condiditon. Your choice between refacing and replacing will be affected by budget, timing and length of project, condition of existing cabinetry, and other kitchen renovation processes.
