Refacing Kitchen Cabinets in the Flatiron District


We refaced this kitchen found in the Flatiron district of Midtown Manhattan. The original cabinets were a cherry colored RTF flat slab doors which we refaced with an Espresso shaker style. This is a more formal look and fits with the rest of the apartment better. The high quality solid maple doors really make a statement. As you can see the fridge panels were also replaced to match the new doors. The homeowner also chose to replace the glass tile backsplash with a subway tile to finish the look.

Cabinet Reface in Maplewood NJ


We just had the pleasure of completing a renovation in a 1930’s era cape home in Maplewood New Jersey. The owners wanted an updated kitchen but wanted to keep the feel of the rest of the home. The refacing project gave a contemporary look  yet kept the charm of the home with the selection of an arched flat panel door with a shaker style look.

They were happy with the layout and look of the old solid upper cabinets but they wanted to put in a dishwasher and add some more storage space to the lower cabinets.

A “hybrid” Kitchen Reface Remodel was the solution for this Essex County home. We replaced all the lower cabinets except for the floor to ceiling cabinet in the corner while refacing the upper cabinets to match. The upper cabinet boxes were in great condition for refacing. The boxes were sanded and painted with a “factory match” paint to create a seamless look between new doors and reused cabinet boxes. New doors and hardware were then installed on all the cabinets. The remodel was topped off with a beautiful granite countertop.

The finished product is a beautiful, yet functional kitchen, which fits perfectly with this 1930’s center hall colonial home.

A Warm Kitchen Update with Maple in Dark Shaker Style


      A customer recently purchased this condo which is within walking distance to Central park on the upper west side. It had good bones but needed some updating. The outdated “cherry” cabinets were actually cheap formica style doors and were starting to delaminate. Fortunately, the original cabinet boxes were in good condition and a good candidate for a NY Kitchen Reface.

      The plain doors were replaced with rich dark stained maple hardwood doors. The previously indistinct Island was transformed into a beautiful focal point for an open floor plan. The less obtrusive knobs helped in adding to a simple, yet elegant look.

Amazing what a difference refacing your kitchen can make at less then half what a new remodel would have cost.

White Shaker Refaced KitchenWe recently completed a reface on kitchen cabinets in downtown Manhattan. This is a good example of the flexibility which Kitchen Cabinet Refacing offers.

They had wonderful steel upper cabinets that they wanted to keep but the lower cabinets were not looking their best. They also wanted to make some changes to the cabinets without disturbing the existing countertop. The owners chose white Shaker style doors with slab drawer fronts that worked very well here.

we suggested that they convert some of the lower cabinets, which had standard shelves, to large drawers.  These drawers , suitable for anything other then the largest pots, allow for easy storage and removal of pots and pans and other large kitchen items. No more bending down to reach that object you want way in the back.  Even in smaller kitchens converting to large drawers is an upgrade worth considering.
