Kitchen cabinet refacing is more affordable and efficient than a full kitchen remodel, but this doesn't mean that homeowners have to skimp on the details. Considering a few extras while refacing kitchen cabinets can really make a kitchen shine.

A kitchen's cabinets are its defining feature because they take up the most space. Taking pride in the details and adding a few new extras when refacing your kitchen cabinets is a great way to get more out of your remodeling project because the details are what make it your own.

Great Extras to Consider

Kitchen details and extras include everything from interesting tile in a backsplash to great cabinet handles and hinges. Here are some other extras that help make a kitchen remodel shine:
  • Customized junk drawers
  • Lower cabinets for backpacks or briefcases
  • Tall cabinets for cereal boxes, cookie sheets, and cookbooks

These changes can be made by hiring a professional kitchen cabinet refacing service. Most companies offer custom designs in addition to cabinet refacing.

Getting the Most Out of Your Refacing Project

Maybe refacing is the only improvement your kitchen needs. But what about that old stove or that creaky fridge? Replacing appliances can increase the price of your kitchen remodel, but coupled with kitchen cabinet refacing they can make your kitchen even better.

Here are some more involved extras to complement your kitchen cabinet refacing project:
  • Countertops
  • Hardware
  • Appliances
  • Islands

Adding these extras will not only improve the appearance of your kitchen, but its function as well. A beautiful, functional kitchen starts with kitchen cabinet refacing and gets better and better with each feature you add.
