Cabinet refacing is an inexpensive way to revamp your St. Louis home. Before the remodeling begins, make sure you are ready for all the changes. Here's what to consider.

Kitchen Cabinet Selections

The major benefit to cabinet refacing is that it dramatically changes your cabinets without replacing them. As you plan this remodeling project for your St. Louis home, make sure you have made all the selections regarding:
  • Wood species.
  • Door style.
  • The use of glass doors in cabinets.
  • "Design extras," such as crown molding

Kitchen Cabinet Accessories

If you've always dreamed of cabinet drawers that pull out, and built in spice racks, then now is the time to add them. These functional features can make a big difference in the way your remodeled kitchen works.

Cabinet Refacing and Your Family

Cabinet refacing is a relatively quick and easy, but, as with any remodeling, you'll need to make a few changes to the daily routine. Here's how to prepare your family:
  • Move household and school papers and other items to give workers access to the kitchen cabinets.
  • Cook meals ahead of time to store. Plan to eat leftovers for a few days, as needed, during the cabinet refacing. 
  • Plan for a little noise and disruption. Realize that it will pale in comparison to a full kitchen remodeling.

Questions For Cabinet Refacing Contractor

Before the cabinet refacing begins, try to anticipate questions. Will there be dust in the kitchen? When will the workers arrive each morning? It is better to be prepared, even if it means adjusting your schedule to fit with the workers' routine.

Before taking this big step to change your St. Louis kitchen, make sure that you are prepared. Ask questions, do some research and get ready to watch a dramatic kitchen cabinet transformation
