Facelift - Reface Your Cabinets in Your Kitchen - McMullin Design Group


Posted by Bridget McMullin on August 07, 2019

Refacing your cabinets is a great way to save money as long as your cabinets are worth it!

When our clients bought their new home, they felt the kitchen did not quite fit the style of the home. MDG agreed on that point. The cabinet selection felt builder’s grade for such a custom space.  They did not want to go into a full renovation but wanted to update the space and add a hood that fed to the outside (the current hood was just a recycled air hood – not great for all the Indian food our clients loved to cook).



MDG created a plan to reface all the existing cabinets with new doors, raised the height of the soffit of the cabinets, updated the hood, and updated the backsplash.  We kept the existing countertops, appliances and light fixtures. We changed the color of the wall cabinets to a darker espresso color instead of the dated cherry finish and updated the white paint finish of all the surrounding cabinets.  New barstools were added to pick up the color of the backsplash.

Overall the kitchen renovation was approximately 1/3rd of a full renovation, approximately $25,000 for the work completed.
