In the city of Philadelphia, where the housing market is as tight as it is stylish, many homeowners are faced with the task of remodeling kitchens designed and built decades ago. If your home is equipped with old, worn out cabinets, or you just want to freshen up your living space, here are some tips for kitchen remodeling in Philadelphia.
Work within Your BudgetWhether you live in one of the famous Victorian style houses of North Philly or in a modernized twin row house in West Philly, it is likely that your kitchen cabinets could use a facelift. The best way to keep your kitchen remodeling project on budget is to make use of the resources you currently have. If your cabinets are already structurally sound and only need a superficial face lift, then kitchen cabinet refinishing can be your best option.
A Second Life for Your CabinetsRefinishing your kitchen cabinets basically consists of applying a new exterior to the already solid cabinet frames, and possibly replacing outdated doors and drawers to match your new cabinet style. For kitchen remodeling in Philadelphia, cabinet refinishing can be a particularly wise choice due to the low cost of investment and the increase in home resale value.
Kitchen cabinet refinishing costs a fraction of replacing them with custom cabinets, while providing you with many options for changing the style and character of your kitchen.
How to Get StartedIf you are considering kitchen cabinet refinishing in Philadelphia, make sure to consult one of the city's reliable remodeling contractors. A remodeling contractor can help you determine if kitchen cabinet refinishing will benefit your kitchen, and can also give you an idea of the cost.
