Customizing Cabinet Exterior Surfaces

If you have been considering a kitchen remodel, you may be one of the few who already has a mental picture of what you would like your new kitchen to look like.  Refacing cabinets is a great solution for worn cabinet doors that are beginning to show age with their old cabinet style and colors.  You may be in for a surprise when you discover all the options that are now available.  Here are some very basic guidelines on how to customize your cabinet’s exterior appearance to fit the style and decor you wish to achieve in your new kitchen.

First, add personalized distinction by choosing the style and design of your new cabinet doors using popular hardwoods for instance such as cherry and maple.  They are available in many shades, and colors from natural to dark.  Glazes are also available in a variety of shades, or bring us a sample of a stain or paint color and we can try to match it.

You may also want to consider using the budget friendly and maintenance free Thermafoil door.  It has the look of real wood with a washable surface which is great for busy families or for those of us who would love just to wipe our doors down with a damp cloth – what could be easier!  They are available in different shades, wood grains and styles. You may also opt for glass inserts in some of your cabinet doors to enhance the look.  Matching cabinet trim and a new hardware style will add the finishing touch and complete the look of your brand new updated kitchen at half the cost of tearing out and replacing.

Note:  For options on customizing the interior of your cabinets while refacing, please see our blog post titled,  HOW TO MAKE MORE EFFICIENT USE OF YOUR KITCHEN CABINETS WHEN REFACING. All refacing choices at Pacific Kitchens are an environmentally friendly green alternative to tearing out existing cabinets and can be usually be completed in about a week.
