Homes Throughout Walnut Creek CA and Concord CA

For homeowners who want to spruce up their kitchens, the decision to replace or reface kitchen cabinets can be a daunting one.

Working with Century Cabinets, you’ll find a true partner to advise you on the best course of action, work carefully quickly and ensure that the finished product is everything you imagined it would be.

Refacing Options
With cabinet refacing, customers have a range of options available. There are three primary types of cabinet refacing available for homes in Walnut Creek CA and Concord CA:
• Paint or refinish the existing cabinets and drawer fronts
• Install a new wood or laminate veneer over the existing cabinets and drawer fronts
• Install new doors and drawer fronts while adding matching veneer or wood coverings to exposed face frames
When deciding whether cabinet refacing is a good option for your Walnut Creek or Concord CA home, it’s important to have a good sense of the quality of the cabinet materials and construction. In some cases, cabinets installed 20, 30 or 40 years ago may be of a high quality and built to last. In these cases, it does not make sense to hit the reset button on the kitchen cabinets.
Cabinet refacing can happen in a few days, depending on the size and number of cabinets involved. Wood options for a refacing project include birch, cherry, maple, oak and walnut. Veneers come in a wide variety of colors and textures that can match existing or new accessories.
When to Replace Cabinets
While cabinet refacing offers a wide range of options and is generally more affordable, in some cases, it makes far more sense to replace the cabinets entirely. If the layout of your kitchen is not the way you want it, you may decide replacing the cabinets makes more sense. If you are doing a complete remodel of your kitchen, existing cabinets may not provide the function or look you want, either.
There are other reasons to opt for replacing cabinets instead of refacing cabinets. If your cabinets are poorly built, are beginning to fall apart, or are metal cabinets that are beginning to rust, then new cabinets make sense. If there are structural issues, such as floors that have shifted or settled, cabinets can cease to function properly or become imbalanced, sending contents sliding.
