It’s official- you’ve decided to take the plunge and remodel your kitchen! However, before you embark on your dream kitchen journey, it’s important to go into the project with a realistic view of how much you can spend on your renovation. Creating a budget for your custom kitchen design (and sticking to it!) is a great way to make sure you keep your spending on track with no hidden surprises.
Clients often ask if they should reface their existing cabinets with new doors or replace them with new cabinets. Earth-Stone always recommends entirely replacing the cabinets because it is a much better investment than refacing, especially if you are planning to add new stone countertops.
The cost of new cabinets is usually about the same as the cost of the materials for refacing and replacing your old cabinets will give you the opportunity to rethink the kitchen design and create a more functional, up-to-date space. You have the option to change the layout of the kitchen cabinets and include new accessories to help organize your kitchen. New cabinets can also last for decades and our cabinetry comes with a limited lifetime warranty. Replacing your old cabinets not only allows you to design a new kitchen that better fits your lifestyle but also adds more value to your home in the long run.
Today, the popularity of kitchen cabinets manufactured in China is on the rise, thanks to their low cost and the ease of online ordering. But while they cost less, they are also of much lower quality. Not to mention you will need to find a kitchen installer willing to put in pre-ordered cabinets.
It’s no surprise that everyone likes a bargain, but when selecting cabinets for your new kitchen design, the old adage is true: You get what you pay for.
