You want to get the most out of your kitchen remodeling project, regardless of its scale. While refacing your kitchen cabinets, consider these extra details that will maximize the value of your kitchen remodeling.

Kitchen remodeling is about giving your kitchen a facelift. Your cabinets are the largest component in your kitchen, and the most important, from a design perspective. Choosing kitchen cabinet refacing can lower your costs and shorten your remodeling timeline, but what about the other elements in your kitchen?

Getting the details right will make your kitchen cabinet refacing project go the extra mile. Adding new cabinet handles and hinges, or under-cabinet lighting, can make your cabinets look even newer.

Adding the Details in Cabinet Refacing

Here are some examples of details you can include in a kitchen cabinet refacing project:
  • Backsplash - Replacing a backsplash to accent your newly refaced kitchen cabinets will really make your kitchen shine. Sometimes, the same contractor or service can do this.
  • Electrical - Are all of your new outlets placed and wired correctly? Is there a separate circuit for appliances like the microwave?
  • Lighting - Do you have under-cabinet lighting installed? Did you choose lighting to hang over your island?
  • Handles and Hardware - Your refaced kitchen cabinets will look even better with new hardware. A new faucet for your sink will add another nice finishing touch.

Hiring a contractor or kitchen cabinet refacing company is a great idea because they can often do all of the above. Hiring separate contractors is another option, although this can often lead to greater hassle and cost.
