Kitchen of the Month Winner for Cabinet Refacing for November
When Fort Wayne, Indiana homeowners contacted us for a fresh new look to their kitchen, we stopped in to see what they were working with. The original kitchen was dark and dated, but the cabinets were still in great shape, and the homeowners were happy with the layout for the most part. Cabinet refacing allowed us to update this kitchen with a whole new style and even add some more functionality, but keep the existing cabinet boxes, which reduced the amount of time and money for the homeowners. After discussing the options with the homeowners, they chose the Lincoln door style from our Kitchen Solvers Classic Collection to give the kitchen a transitional look. The cabinets were complete in a downy white finish with a pewter glaze, which just gives the doors a slight antiqued look. We added a few cabinet boxes to the tops of the existing wall cabinets to extend the length of the cabinets and give the kitchen more functional storage.
We then removed the microwave and installed a stainless-steel hood in its place. For the hutch area, we added all new cabinets with some glass doors in the upper cabinets and a microwave cabinet in the lower cabinet with some additional storage. We were able to add this new cabinetry, but match it with the existing cabinets and then reface all cabinets to give them the same look. For the hutch portion of the kitchen, the cabinets were done in a pewter color to add a little more detail. Next, we installed new under cabinet lights and ran lighting inside the glass doored cabinets to really brighten up the space. To finish the new look, we installed a ceramic tile backsplash in a light gray. This kitchen is now transitional, bright, and more functional. It is full of storage and the homeowners are excited to call it their own!
