No area of a kitchen has such a huge impact on both functionality and style like kitchen cabinets. Houston homeowners considering a kitchen remodel may begin by looking at the floor, countertops, and appliances, but without a plan for kitchen cabinetry you may end up with disappointment at the end of your project. Here's another huge reason to have a kitchen cabinet plan: While it's difficult to underestimate the effect quality cabinets have on a kitchen, you can also save quite a bit of money on your remodeling budget if you're already happy with the basic layout of your cabinetry.
Houston Kitchen Cabinet Remodeling, Refinishing, and Re-facing
With the continual opening and closing of cabinets for dishes, food, and other kitchen supplies, even the best cabinets are going to show wear over time. However, they may not be in as bad of condition as they appear. Refinishing your kitchen cabinets will put a shiny new face on your cabinets, and can eliminate grime and surface scratching. For dents, cracks, and imperfections, cabinet re-facing provides a comprehensive stripping, sanding, and repair of your cabinets that can truly return them to their original condition. Alternately, you can transform their look with a different wood grain or paint job.
Besides the fact that these kitchen cabinet renovations can make your once beautiful cabinetry "like-new" again, they offer advantages as well. First, you may be able to renovate your cabinets for less cost, allowing you to invest your money in other areas of your new kitchen design. Even if the cost is comparable, renovated solid wood cabinets may be nicer than new wood veneer, stock cabinets. Plus, by working with your old cabinets you may not need to rip out your entire kitchen, allowing you to remodel in stages, and minimize the inconvenience on your day-to-day life.
New Houston Kitchen Cabinets
Many Houston homeowners, though, find their cabinets are either beyond repair or simply don't provide sufficient storage space. All too often, homeowners move into a home and spend a futile day reorganizing their kitchen supplies only to find a few pots, a blender, or dishes that simply have no place to go. Newly designed kitchen cabinets can fix this problem. If you have the raw space, you can probably purchase stock or semi-stock cabinetry for less money that will do just fine. But custom kitchen cabinets in a Houston kitchen are the only way to go to maximize use of available space and create cabinetry of unmatched beauty and design.

Houston Kitchen Cabinet Remodeling Contractors
Already feeling overwhelmed by your choices? This is why we suggest talking to a kitchen cabinet remodeling contractor first. If you go to a chain home improvement store, you're going to get a limited representation of your options in a high-pressure sales situation. A Houston cabinetry professional will offer you unbiased advice and a fair representation of your options. If you can only find contractors who specialize in a single cabinetry remodeling or building craft, you can also talk to interior designers in Houston who specialize in kitchen design; they may have ideas you wouldn't have thought of otherwise.
Once you've decided what you want to do with your kitchen cabinets, our data suggests your project may take anywhere from less than a week to more than three weeks. Custom cabinetry building for a full kitchen is going to take the longest, but having the perfect kitchen cabinets is worth the wait.
