Cabinet Reface Direct Gives Manhattan Kitchen Cabinets a Bold New Look
May 05, 2023
Midtown Manhattan is New York City's central business district and a hub for shopping, dining, entertainment, and cultural adventures. Those who live in the area tend to love the hustle and bustle and thrive in this fast-paced environment.
One such Manhattan resident, Eliza J., wanted to change the look of the cabinets in her small but functional kitchen. Her current cabinets weren't bad, but the all-white color felt bland. She wanted something that would offer a bolder, more modern presence.
Eliza did a Google search and found Cabinet Reface Direct of Manhattan in the top results and gave them a call. The representative scheduled Eliza for a free in-person consultation.
A cabinet designer named John arrived to look at Eliza's cabinets to ensure they were a candidate for refacing. He explained to her that the condition was important because refacing poorly maintained cabinets would only mask their issues.
Eliza's cabinets were in great shape. The craftsmanship was high-quality, and she was happy with the functionality and storage she had. She just wanted to change their style.
John showed her some samples, and they discussed options for hardware and spent time talking about colors. Eliza was concerned with having all dark cabinets because it would make her small kitchen seem cramped. John suggested using a two-tone approach with shaker-style cabinets throughout.
John told her the right choice of color would balance out the space in the kitchen. He showed her some color swatches he thought would work well, and Eliza chose Royal White for the top cabinets and dark blue (Perfect Touch Mysterious) for the bottom. For a single cabinet above the oven, John suggested using a shaker-style door in stone gray with a matte finish to match the nearby appliances better.
Eliza then worked with John to select new hardware. For the white cabinets, they decided not to use handles. It was a bold move that would make the installation look more streamlined. For the lower cabinets, she chose sleeker handles, giving the kitchen a more elegant appearance.
In addition to the handles, John told her they would use soft-close hinges to prevent the drawers and cabinet doors from slamming shut, resulting in less wear and tear.
Pleased with the design they came up with, Eliza was eager to have the work done. She asked John how long the job would take.
He explained to her that it would be three days maximum. He said that day one would consist of removing the existing doors and preparing and cleaning cabinet boxes, day two would involve finishing the boxes, assembling the new drawer fronts, and hanging the doors, and the final day would be devoted to door adjustments, applying finishing touches, and cleaning up.
Satisfied with John's plan, Eliza scheduled an appointment.
John arrived on the first day of the job and went to work. He removed all the old cabinet doors, drawer fronts, and hardware, then removed the old trim and veneer. He sanded exposed areas to prepare them for the new veneers, then cleaned the sanded areas before applying them.
By the end of the third day, all of the cabinet doors and drawer fronts were in place, as well as the new hardware. Eliza could not have been more impressed with the results. She told John he'd gone above and beyond what she'd expected. She couldn't wait for her friends to see the new look, and she assured John she would happily recommend Cabinet Reface Direct to her family and friends.
