Can Metal Kitchen Cabinets Be Refaced?
Posted - 01/12/2012
Metal kitchen cabinets keep their strength and durability for many years. However, sometimes their beauty needs a face lift, called a professional reface. Scratched paint and little nicks detract from your lovely kitchen décor. People notice kitchen cabinets as much as the counters and flooring. Regardless of which look, retro or modern, you are trying to achieve, cabinets are an important part of the design. You do not have to pay a fortune to have a kitchen your friends and neighbors will envy.
A professional tradesman can reface your kitchen cabinets for a fraction of the price of buying new. Choose classic colors, such as buttercup yellow or turquoise for a 1950s kitchen. Or choose a modern theme that coordinates with kitchen countertops and floor tiles. If you currently have classic kitchen cabinets but desire 21st century décor, then change the door pulls at the same time you get them refaced. There is another important benefit in addition to saving money. When you choose to reface the metal kitchen cabinets, you are being environmentally friendly. In addition, if you prefer superior American quality, older metal kitchen cabinets were generally made from American steel and assembled by American workers. You may not be able to replace that quality at an affordable price.
