The Alternative to Painful Kitchen Remodelingby Joe Cooper

Living through a long and involved kitchen remodel is not always necessary. If your kitchen cabinets can be salvaged, kitchen cabinet refacing can save weeks worth of your and your family's valuable time, protecting your routine and your sanity.
The Pain of RemodelingKitchen remodeling can take its toll on daily household operations. Homeowner Suzanne Boyle knows this firsthand. In a column for her suburb's newspaper in Illinois she wrote, "I am without a kitchen." She described how her refrigerator was along a wall near the foyer and her gas stove in the living room; she had not had a normal meal for weeks.
The Alternative to Complete RemodelingYou don't need to rearrange your life to remodel your kitchen. Kitchen cabinets make up over 50% of the cost of a kitchen remodeling. Suffering weeks and even months worth of hassle and living without a kitchen may not be worth it if you can salvage the kitchen cabinets you have. Kitchen cabinet refacing can save you weeks of valuable time (and sanity), not to mention thousands of dollars.
It took Shirley Lind of New York only a weekend to have her kitchen cabinets refaced professionally. The interiors of her 30-year old cabinets were just fine, so she simply had them re-lined.
A New Kitchen in a WeekMost kitchen cabinet refacing companies can completely reface a whole kitchen's cabinets within a week's time. Your refrigerator doesn't go anywhere. Neither does your stove. You keep most of your kitchen's functionality during the remodel, and you dont have to compromise your lifestyle.
If your kitchen does not need a complete remodeling overhaul, consider kitchen cabinet refacing instead--you'll save a lot of valuable time. Refacing can produce the same effect as a completely new kitchen, and you won't have to eat out every night along the way.
