One of the first rooms everyone notices upon entering a home is the kitchen. I suppose this is because some time over the years the kitchen became the gathering space in most homes since mom spent so much time in there. We have all pretty much come to understand that the kitchen is the most remodeled room in a home, again I am sure, because of the reasons mentioned above. This is also the room that is the most costly to remodel especially if the replacement of kitchen cabinets is involved. But there is no need to replace those cabinets if they are in good shape and you have no issues with the style. If this is the case, then the refacing of your kitchen cabinet doors will give you that fresh new look you are seeking.
Refacing kitchen cabinet doors is a fairly straight forward process that even the most novice do it yourself homeowner can easily accomplish. The first step in the process involves the evaluation of your present cabinetry. Assuming that you are happy with the style of cabinets you have, inspect your cabinet boxes to be sure they are structurally sound. Check all joints for tightness and drawer slides to ensure all drawers operate smoothly and close completely. Next check underneath the sink to see if there is any evidence of water damage due to leaks in the plumbing and drainage system. Now check all the cabinet doors to see if any show signs of being warped or have any other type of damage. If you discover any problems associated with any of these items, you need to first address the repairs of those problems before you move on to the next step.
