Rethinking Your Kitchen Cabinets?

Reface or Replace?

Consider a kitchen reface to save money on your kitchen remodel. Instead of starting from scratch, if your existing cabinets are well-built and well maintained you may be able save time and money by simply refacing your cabinets. Our process begins by either adding a laminated veneer to your cabinets or replacing only the cabinet fronts.

This recent kitchen renovation showcases a beautiful reface project that preserved the existing cabinets while giving the kitchen an updated look to coordinate better with the rest of the house.

Reface or Replace? Continued...

In this example the former owners had painted the already dated cabinet fronts to a flora and fauna pastel motif that the new owner had grown to loath. The cabinet boxes were in good condition, so The Creative Kitchen company worked closely with the homeowner to create the kind of retro-glam kitchen that would tie beautifully into her home and rid her of the floral motif once and for all.

And voila – the results are stunning; the client is elated, and we have some pretty impressive before and after photos to show this remarkable transformation! The new cabinets are: Macasser Ebony – exotic wood.

Reface or Replace? Continued...

We worked closely with the homeowners to come up with a cost-effective solution that included: painting the existing cabinets, removing the less functional Lazy Suzan cabinets and replacing them with custom matched corner pull-out drawers, adding beautiful new hardware universally and finally this show stopper, the hammered copper sink.

Overall the changes gave the whole kitchen a fresh updated look while optimizing kitchen space and function. This kitchen is a great example of true collaboration with our customers to achieve their dream kitchen within a modest budget and space limitations.

What to do about Oak?

There are many solutions ranging from a costly cabinet overhaul to a more cost effective reface. In this example we show you how a simple remodel with lots of white gives a tasteful, beautiful kitchen update that instantly makes your kitchen feel more open, bright and spacious.

The pictures speak for themselves – taking it from dark and dated to bright and striking by adding light paint colors, trim, doors, and new cabinets. We kept the original countertops to tie back to the warm floor color which helped keep our budget and color schemes intact!

What to do about Oak? Continued...

Originally an all oak kitchen, Thomas and Linda were looking for an updated look that would feel lighter, more functional and coordinate better with the rest of their home. This couple knew they wanted to reface their kitchen to save money and time. The Creative Kitchen Co. was able to keep the existing cabinet boxes and create a beautiful new look that suited their timeless style.

Additionally, the CKCo team was able to create a more functional space by re-configuring a planning desk area within the kitchen and integrating a sheet pan cabinet to create added, more practical space. Best of all, because this was a reface, the entire project was completed within 5 days and well within their budget!

Appliances

It would be impossible to leave out appliances in popular kitchen remodeling ideas. Gray-toned appliances are increasingly becoming popular. Stainless steel appliances have been the usual choice in the market for the longest time, and the rise of gray-toned appliances is also worth paying attention to. The trend today is to experiment with a wider variety of tones in the kitchen.

Additionally, more people looking to remodel their kitchens want to include induction cook-tops. Aesthetics plays a major role, as more homeowners look for more unique looks to set their kitchens apart. The use of colors within the appliances is a welcomed trend, anything from blue to sunshine yellow.

Never overlook the value of a well-designed kitchen sink. Current kitchen sink trends include granite, porcelain, stainless steel, trough and under mount. Another interesting kitchen sink element is the use of copper. Copper sinks are becoming more and more popular and really add an interesting element to the space.

Hardwood & Ceramic Flooring

Although hardwood flooring will still continue to be very popular, ceramic flooring will also get increased attention. Due to the development of technology, various new designs are now available for ceramic flooring including tiles that appear precisely like hardwood flooring.

If you wish to retain the hardwood look but want a material that is easier to maintain, consider using ceramic. Ceramic tiles can also be designed to look like other materials such as natural stone.

We hope that these popular kitchen ideas can serve as references for your kitchen remodeling.

WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY

The Creative Kitchen Co. team is wonderful: They are wonderful craftsmen, and also completely honest and trustworthy. I felt very comfortable having the workers in my home every day.

They turned a mistake I made into something really extraordinary: I ordered cabinets that were about eight inches too short; there was a gap between the top of the cupboards and the ceiling that looked awkward.

I found some intricate molding that I really liked and sent it to the team: They built custom molding to fit that awkward space. It works so well that I’m glad I ordered the wrong cabinets.

WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY

We hired the Creative Kitchen Company to come in and reface our dated oak cabinets, install a glass backsplash, and added a custom pantry. The quality of their work is exceptional. They were such a pleasure to work with. They were on time every day and were dead on with their ETA to complete the project.

They have a great eye for design and held our hand every step of the way. I had multiple companies provide quotes and they were by far the best and worth every penny. I would highly recommend them, you will not be disappointed.
