If Your Kitchen Carcasses Are Intact - Refacing May Give You the Kitchen You Desire For Minimal Cost

May 15, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 200

Kitchen carcasses are the bodies of the cabinet- that part of the cabinet that is hidden behind the door. This includes the basic box structure, shelves and drawers (minus the drawer front). Generally the front of the cabinet- the doors and drawer fronts receive the most use or, as the most visual element, demand an updating. Therefore, the kitchen carcasses, if structurally sound, can often outlast these visible surfaces. If these carcasses can be salvaged, then your kitchen remodel can cost significantly less. These surfaces can be updated by refacing the kitchen cabinets for a brand new look.

If you like the basic layout of your kitchen but you are interested in improving the cosmetic appearance of the cabinets, then the next step is to assess the condition of the kitchen carcasses. This is an important step in determining if refacing kitchen cabinets is the right approach for your remodel. Remove the doors and drawer fronts and look closely at the carcasses that remain. Are the shelves, box and face frames (if applicable) intact, structurally sound, in good condition and free from soiling, rot or deterioration? Many older cabinets are made of a solid wood while newer manufacturers may use particle board or other material that will not wear as well.

If your carcasses are in good condition, then you are in luck- refacing your kitchen cabinets is a viable option and you may proceed with your assessment. If the bodies of the cabinet passes this inspection, your cabinets can be refaced at a fraction of the cost and get you that kitchen face lift you desire.

If some of your carcasses are in poor shape or lack the utility you desire (for instance many older kitchens may have hard wood cabinets but often have blind corners where the cabinet run turns and angle- a situation which lacks function as items placed in these dark recesses are inaccessible and often lost), more modern manufacturers have solved this problem with a number of cabinet options such as a lazy Susan. If you need to replace a carcass or two, then these can be purchased from an online retailer or a home improvement box store.

If you want a new kitchen on a budget and are considering refacing your kitchen cabinets, then the first step is to assess the condition and utility of your kitchen carcasses. If these pass muster, you may then consider refacing your kitchen cabinets at a significant cost savings.
