It is also a known fact that kitchen and bathroom remodeling are the two things most likely to add value to your home and get you a quick sale. If you are planning to extend or change the layout of your kitchen, then kitchen cabinet replacement is your only avenue for change. If, however, you just want to change or modernize the look, you should seriously consider kitchen cabinet refacing.
