Should I Get A Full Kitchen Remodel or A Kitchen Refinish?
Good Question – Let’s Talk About The Right Answer For YOU.
If you are considering a full kitchen remodel versus a kitchen refinish, we can’t give you a ‘one-size-fits-all’ answer here on this one page. There are just too many unique factors and situations to be able to do that.
Ultimately, the best way to make an informed decision is to meet with one of our friendly, experienced kitchen design consultants and get personalized, one-on-one recommendations.
All that being said, we can provide some information right here that will get the “juices flowing” and allow you to start thinking through your project in a helpful way.
There Are Four Main Areas To Consider As You Envision Your Kitchen Project:
Area #1: Do I need/want to re-configure the space of my kitchen?
If you want to change the configuration of your kitchen – things like knocking down walls, re-configuring countertops, changing out cabinets completely, then you are going to want a full kitchen remodel.
Area #2: I’m satisfied with the space and layout of my cabinets,
I just want them to look a lot better!
If your main concerns are with the appearance of your cabinets and countertops, that’s a signal that a kitchen refinish might be your best option. Instead of the cost of a full remodel, you can have a transformed kitchen for about 1/3 the price.
Area #3: Do I want additions to my kitchen,
like an island and/or a new pantry?
It really depends on whether or not the structural layout of the kitchen will change. In many cases, we can add an island or pantry… or even more cabinets as part of a refinishing job. Give us a call and we will help you determine the best course.
Area #4: Cost vs benefit analysis: how much do I want to pay and how long do I want this to take?
The biggest benefit to a refinish is that you still get a beautiful result, but at about 1/3 the cost and in about 1/3 the time. Some Kansas City homeowners decide to forgo a full remodel in favor of saving time and money. For them, a kitchen refinish gives the benefit of a new kitchen but at a price that better matches their budget.
