Battery Park Residents Save Thousands With Kitchen Cabinet Refacing
June 10, 2023
Phillip and Dawn A. of Battery Park, Manhattan, wanted to redesign their kitchen to update the look of their cabinets. After calling several renovation companies and being unable to find reasonably-priced options, they took a friend's advice. They decided to look into cabinet refacing instead, hoping they could accomplish the same results more affordably.
Phillip did some quick research on refacing and liked what he learned. He read that cabinetry in good shape didn't need to be gutted and replaced. With refacing, they could keep the cabinet boxes intact and just get new doors, drawer fronts, and hardware to update the appearance.
He had no idea how to tell if his cabinet boxes were candidates for refacing. They looked great to him, but he was no expert, so Phillip did more research on Google and found Cabinet Reface Direct of Manhattan in the top results. He spent time on their website and learned they offered free consultations.
Phillip called the company and spoke to a representative, who scheduled him to meet with a Cabinet Reface Direct designer named John. The next day, he arrived at the couple's apartment, and they looked at the cabinets and discussed some design options.
John made a few suggestions, and after some back and forth, they decided to go with a modern wood grain in Tafisa Amlam Latitude North (white). Their previous cabinets were medium-dark brown in color, making the kitchen feel cramped. John assured them that the all-white cabinets would help visually open the space up and make it look larger than it was.
The designer noticed unused space above the cupboards and asked Phillip and Dawn if they wanted more storage. They were ecstatic because one of the things they disliked was the lack of storage. It had never even occurred to them that the space above the cabinets could be utilized.
John outlined the scope of the project and gave the couple an estimated cost. They couldn't believe they'd be saving thousands of dollars compared to the quotes they got to have the cabinetry completely gutted and renovated.
He showed the couple their cabinets and pointed out the quality of the wood. He described how sturdy they were and explained that it would almost be wasteful to dispose of them instead of using the structures as the foundation for new components.
All of it made perfect sense to Phillip and Dawn. They coordinated a date to have him return and transform their kitchen. John and another designer returned on time for the scheduled installation, ready to start. They removed all of the cabinet doors, drawers, and hardware, then prepared the exposed surfaces for sanding. Next, they applied the veneer, working in unison to put it on flawlessly.
The two worked diligently throughout the day, installing new cabinet doors for the added storage space. The entire installation went smoothly, and they completed the kitchen in record time — all in one day! Phillip and Dawn couldn't believe it was finished so fast. John explained that an average job typically took several days, but with the two of them working on the installation and everything falling into place, it had gone quicker than expected.
They toured the kitchen and were shocked by the transformation. The lighter color of the cabinets made the kitchen seem more spacious, and the additional storage was a huge win for them. They knew it would make all the difference when they organized their kitchen.
The couple said they would recommend Cabinet Reface Direct to their friends and family. In fact, over the next few days, their guests were shocked when they saw how Cabinet Reface Direct had given Phillip and Dawn's kitchen a new personality. Comparing how their kitchen cabinets looked before with the new ones was like night and day, and the results spoke for themselves.
