From soft-closing drawers to creative storage options, these high-end kitchen cabinet features will appeal to home buyers and enhance value when remodeling.
Angie responds to a member who is concerned about painting her kitchen cabinets. She explains that refacing and reglazing are two affordable options that can refresh the look of kitchen cabinets.
Cabinet refacing experts say the project offers the appearance of an updated kitchen without the cost of a full-scale remodel.
Not really. If the contractor is very careful and you are really lucky he might be able to pull them out and then reinstall them after the new cabinets are installed. A lot of this will have to do with how well the counters were installed in the first place. Also, the existing countertops may not line up with the new cabinets exactly in some areas as well as they do now. The better option is to have the cabinets refaced, leaving the boxes and tops in place. Unlless you have deteriorating particle board cabinets you should be able to get a carpenter to do this. If you decide to remove the countertops and install new cabinets factor in new tops and be pleasantly surprised if they can be reinstalled afterall. Realize you probably won't find a contractor willing to gurantee not damaging the tops. If you do, dig in and research him well. He likely doesn't have enough experience.

As long as the counter is big enough Corian is one of the easier ones to work with. Since it does not have the ground or crushed stone that some of the other material have you can work with normal woodworking tools. A saw with a fine tooth carbide blade and a professional grade router with the proper shaped carbde bit can be used if the edge needs finishing. A belt sander helps on cuts also. The only problem you might have is if you need the joint kits for seaming as I dont think you can buy them.
When Corian first came out I could buy the slabs and fabricate my own tops and then Dupont went to a certified distributor system and would no longer sell to those of us that had been working with it for years. I will admit that they did have reasons for this as not all that were working with the product were doing it right.

- Complete Painting of the home (all rooms, ceilings & walls)
This was one aspect of the project that truly transformed our newly acquired 15 year old home from a not so well maintained/outdated looking home, into a fresh un-lived in appearance. One of the biggest accommodations made regarding the painting was that each room consisted of a custom finish; in some cases two to three different colors, which allowed us to prepare every room, especially the children's rooms exactly the way they wanted. We also had some previous drywall cavities (from previous installations) filled w/ new drywall, textured and painted..... can't even tell they were there!
- Complete strip, sand and refinish of all Kitchen cabinets
This was an ideal solution for us. We loved the custom cabinets with fluted corners and beveled edged doors but to replace the outdated off-white finish would have cost in upwards of $40-50K dollars. Each cabinet underwent a full acid strip down to the bare wood and then a sanding to remove as much of the previous stain saturation as possible, and re-stained with a beautiful Rosewood color and accented with Antique Nickle knobs and pulls. The results were better than expected. The only thing that was incomplete were two small drawers that required modification for the new
- Refinish the front and rear stair case, update the balusters with rod iron and remove a half wall and match the balusters installed in the front stair case
This part of the project did not go as smooth as the other improvements. Mainly because the rod iron experienced noticeable chipping, hole plugs were not all filled and/or not sanded smooth with stair treads and after some time we noticed the half wall rail cap was installed with two pieces of wood instead of a single piece thereby creating an obvious joint. Another project faux pas was when the rod iron was cut on the entry porch. After the cutting we received heavy rain which mixed with all the iron cuts and shavings causing a lot of rust to puddle and stain the entire left side of the porch. we've tried CLR, power washing and other chemicals to no avail. After a year there is still a rust appearance on that side of the porch which will probably require us to have completely re re mortared to fix.
- Kitchen Back splash completely torn out and replaced with a slate stack stone
This again was a truly amazing modification to the appearance of the kitchen area. The kitchen was now updated and because a natural stone was used I would imagine the look will last many decades if not forever without going out of style. We also placed
- Bedroom Closet expanded into a small walkin with a portion of the old closet converted to a built in desk area
This was a great modification. It just so happened that the room had some wasted wall space that we were able to incorporate into the closet which turn the least desirable upstairs bedroom into the most desirable. The only issue we really have outstanding is the new closet flooring. The old sub-flooring was reused which does not cover the entire floor space so when you walk into that part of the closet your foot drops down where there isn't any support below. This is still an outstanding item.
- Engineering tasks included extended a gas line into the laundry room for a gas dryer, fitting a pot filler about the
We experienced a couple issues with the gas line. Due to a faulty fitting during installation we encountered a gas leak that resulted in having to tear out a small portion of the wall in laundry room to fix the leak. The drywall, texture and paint is still awaiting repair. We also had a new stainless steel hood vent put in and the blue protective film between the cabinets and the hood are still exposed which appears tacky and requires removal of the hood to properly remove w/o scratching the stainless finish. A small stainless back splash directly behind the
- In addition we had another contractor put in new baseboards when we redid all the hardwood floors and carpeted areas and
A higher grade of satisfaction would have been given had the project been seen to completion and all our items of dissatisfaction had been addressed. For the Angies list ratings we looked at the items we were satisfied with with and the unsatisfied work and provided an average.
When production started, it was exceptionally clean for my family as we still had to function in the house. They set us up to have a pseudo-kitchen in our foyer while the major area was being constructed so our life could carry on. The people that were in our home were incredibly respectful and clean as well.
The best part was, once they had my cabinets built, they set up a 'mock kitchen' for me in their place of business that I could actually walk through and feel what the space would be like to scale before they executed it. Every detail, every nook and cranny, became a useful space for something. Everything was truly customized - "creative" is absolutely what they are! I'd give them an A+++ if I could!”
