Did You Know…

1. What do you need to think about when remodeling your kitchen/bathroom?

Start with your cabinetry. The most expensive part of a kitchen/bathroom remodel is usually the cabinets. This is where we can help you as cabinet experts. Budget. Style. Materials. Layout. Time-frame. There are many things to consider when thinking about your new kitchen, and we would like to help you focus on the key things that matter:

  • Budget – having a realistic budget is always good so you know how much you can spend to get the most value.
  • Style – start with a general style you like and we can figure out the details (color scheme, cabinet design, door style, etc…) together.
  • Materials – shape the look of your space with the right material choice when it comes to your cabinets and how they will complement your countertops, backsplashes, flooring, etc…
  • Layout – share your layout ideas/wish lists with us so that we can help you with space planning.
  • Time-frame – tell us your project timeline so that we can make your project a success.

2. What is space planning?

Space planning considers the purpose of spaces and who will use them. If done right, a well-designed space becomes the ideal blend of form, function, and beauty. Designing and installing your kitchen/bathroom cabinetry can be more complicated than you think—it’s more than just arranging cabinet boxes.

At CITY CABINET CENTER, our designers consider all aspects of your kitchen/bathroom remodel when designing and installing your cabinets. We work with your contractors to make sure that the cabinetry fits perfectly with the appliances, plumbing, electrical wiring, lighting, etc. With our space planning experts, remodeling your kitchen/bathroom remodel will be a breeze.

3. What is the difference between refacing, resurfacing, and refinishing cabinets?

Resurfacing kitchen cabinets is a process in which the existing cabinets are given a “facelift”. The existing cabinet framework is usually resurfaced with laminate or wood veneer replacement material. Refacing is the same thing as resurfacing.

Refinishing is different. For cabinet refinishing, you’re simply changing the color of your cabinet finish. All components of your existing cabinetry remain intact. Refinishing typically involves sanding or chemically stripping away the existing finish from the wood by hand, and then applying new paint or stain.
