Is refacing right for
me and my home?
Of course that's
a question only you can answer, but here are some guidelines.
First of all, your
existing cabinetry must be structurally sound. If it's not, it really makes no sense to give
a new face to a wobbly or worn-out structure.
Just as important,
does the basic
layout of your kitchen
meet your needs? Not too long ago, most homes were designed with
the kitchen closed off from other areas of the home. Today, people
that are more open,
more of a "public space," often bounded by an island
or peninsula. If your current kitchen is closed off and you want
to open it up, you most likely will have to remove a wall or
two, and add some entirely new cabinets. That means Renew's highly-flexible nature is uniquely suited to your project.
There are also practical factors
to consider. A refacing project often can be completed
much quicker than a full remodel, with less disruption to
your life. If that's important to you, Renew is a great choice.

kitchen, like new counter tops or flooring, refacing lets you
retain them. And if you're
hoping to sell your home soon, Renew gives a kitchen or bath
an entirely updated look, at a lower total project cost that
does not bite off too much precious equity.
