Increase Storage With Cabinet Refacing

Storage - or the lack of it - is one of the biggest complaints homeowners have about their kitchens. If you are tired of living with outdated kitchen cabinets with few storage options, consider the benefits of cabinet refacing.

Common Kitchen Cabinet Storage Issues

One problem with old kitchen cabinets is that they often rely on horizontal shelves for storage. This type of layout does not take into account the varied items that are easier to store vertically in kitchen cabinets. Among the common storage challenges are:

  • Tall champagne glasses.
  • Large pots and pans.
  • Cookie sheets.
  • Small appliances.


Cabinet Refacing Helps Improve Storage

Through a cabinet refacing project, you can not only improve the design of your space, but also make the kitchen cabinets more functional. All this without living through a major remodeling project! Among the storage options are:

  • Roll out drawers. These are ideal for pots and pans and small appliances that otherwise are hard to pull out of kitchen cabinets.
  • Spice racks - with varying levels or on a lazy Susan style base.
  • Wire inserts to divide vertical space and maximize storage of coffee cups and bowls.
  • Lazy Susans for corner cabinets.
  • Drawer dividers for silverware and utensils


Understanding Cabinet Refacing

Cabinet refacing is a quick and easy project that involves replacing the cabinet doors, drawer fronts and hardware. Instead of pulling out all your old cabinets, the cabinet refacing company will give new life to the outsides. This type of remodeling can dramatically transform your kitchen cabinets and making storing kitchen items a breeze.
