Failing to do so could be the cause of expensive and frustrating mistakes. On-line and off-line help for DIY cabinet refacing is available, you just have to look for it.
Let me now get to the best part of it all…let’s talk saving money!!!
Kitchen cabinet refacing is already a huge savings compared to a complete replacement, and the do-it-yourself option will double that savings!
Suppose your old looking kitchen will cost $14,000 to replace with a brand new, shaker style, maple door. For the same door style and material, you will be quoted approx. $7,000 by a professional refacing company. As a homeowner, you could apply the do-it-yourself concept and invest only $3,000 – $3,500 in purchasing the materials.
If the job is done properly, a $14,000 job could cost you $3,000 and a couple weekends of your time. Imagine the bragging rights that would give you…you’re smiling already aren’t you? 😉[maxbutton id=”1″]
