A kitchen cupboard can come in a wide variety of styles and designs. The cost will also range depending on the style and the material that the cupboard will feature. It is very important that the design of the kitchen cupboard will go well with the décor of your kitchen. The majority of people prefer kitchen cupboard that are flexible in both functionality and design. People now prefer kitchen cupboards that feature quality wood materials.

Naturally you will know that new kitchen cupboards will give your kitchen a whole new look! They will give a new life to the heart of your home, and if bought correctly, they can last years to come. Because your kitchen cupboards will live on in your kitchen for many years, or at least until you feel like or can afford to replace them again, you need to pick the right ones. It is easy to get overwhelmed by the choices that you have, so you need to break your decisions down to make them easier. The first thing to consider is your budget. Your budget will determine the whole change, and you will have a good idea of your limitations. If you know how much you can spend, then you can let the salesperson in the shop know what sort of price range you are looking at in advance, to save yourself the heartbreak of being shown beautiful cupboards that you can never afford. The next thing you can consider is the style and feel you are hoping for in your kitchen. This will in turn help you choose colours and materials. For example, if you are wishing for a homely, country style kitchen then you can consider buying wooden kitchen cupboards. If you want a more modern look, then you can consider getting something with steel finishes and modern knobs. For a fresh, clean kitchen that is timeless, you can choose smooth white cupboards with simple finishes. For a trendier kitchen, you can choose quirkier styles of cupboards and even a bold colour such as red! There are some premade kitchen cupboards that you can purchase. This means the style and colours will already have been created, you will simply need to order the size and quantity you want. This limits your freedom of choice with regards to specialising what you want, but it is also more cost effective. You will, however, have the option to get your kitchen cupboards custom made, and this is when the choices become a bit more important. You will have to choose the material, style and colour of your kitchen cupboards before they will be custom made and fitted into your kitchen. This gives you more creative freedom, but is also more costly. If you really want the freedom of expression, and want a unique kitchen you feel you have truly designed yourself, then the cost is worth it. Bear in mind that it is important for you to consider what you really want. Take your time in choosing the right cupboards, and do not choose something simply because it is cheap. Remember that the wrong materials or poorly constructed kitchen cupboards will warp and become tatty over time, and then you will have to do the remodelling all over again! If you are the kind of person who gets bored easily, then you must rather consider neutral colours. For a splash of colour and vibrancy in your kitchen you can dress up the cupboards by adding cute decorations and colourful plates around your kitchen.

Pros and Cons of Kitchen Cupboard Resurfacing There are many benefits to having your kitchen, bathroom or office cupboards remodeled by resurfacing them. There are a few things that are not so good. My views on the pros and cons of renovating cabinets in this way come from thirty years of custom kitchen fabrication and home renovations. The process I will be discussing is recovering old Formica plastic laminate with new Formica. One of the most common questions people ask is; "does the old Formica get peeled off?" My answer is almost always; "no". The process involves roughing up the existing surface with sand paper and covering over the top of the existing plastic. Buying and Flipping Houses One of the things that I have noticed is that contractors, Realtors and people looking to make a few dollars from buying and selling houses, oftentimes will get estimates on resurfacing cupboards. Covering over the old laminate and installing new doors is a reasonably priced, quick fix way of remodeling an ugly kitchen or bathroom in comparison to installing new cabinetry. One of the BIG PROS of resurfacing is that a contract can be signed today and the cabinets be completed within four days. That is if there are not special order doors involved and the plastic laminate is available for next day delivery. Some Old Cupboards Still Have Wrinkles Even though your kitchen may get a face-lift on the outside, many things will still "mark" the cabinetry as being old. Things like water damaged areas around the sink, drawers that just dont move smoothly and dated materials used on the interiors of cabinets years ago will be noticeable. Even though the outside will look like brand new-the inside of the cabinets almost always show signs that they are older cupboards. How Good Will the New Surface Adhere? If your existing Formica laminate is adhered really well, then the chances of the new plastic staying secured to the old are really good. If you have several areas that are coming loose, then you will have problems down the road. Sure the installer can glue the loose areas down before gluing the new covering on top, but this is not going to stop the process of the old mica letting loose over the course of time. I would say that this is one of the biggest cons of recovering plastic laminate cabinets. Design Limitations What you see is what you get. There is not much that can be changed with an existing set of cupboards that are getting resurfaced. Sure, you can add a few drawers, maybe cut something down to make a new appliance fit and install a new cabinet or two, but the basic layout of the kitchen stays the same. Money Savings Comparisons There are several things that make kitchen cupboard resurfacing appealing to the home-owner seeking to remodel on a budget. For the most part, several thousand dollars can be saved. It is less expensive to resurface cabinets for several reasons: • Less materials are needed • Appliances do not need to be removed and re-installed • Electricians and plumbers may not be necessary • The amount of labor needed is a lot less when compared to fabricating a new set of cupboards In my experience, it seems like the pros and cons people get hung up on are the price savings and the design change limitations. They want to switch their kitchen cupboard layout a bit, but do not want to spend a lot of money for new cabinets. As previously mentioned, resurfacing does not allow for a lot of layout design changes. So, people have a tendency to find themselves stuck between a rock and a hard place. Very often, what happens in these situations is that the customer, rather than choosing to replace or reface, decides to wait until they can afford to get everything new.
