We went from a 1960s knotty pine, to a more reasonable white lacquer shaker (10200 style) with a laminate counter and a timeless subway...
A galley kitchen in a condominium. They went from a standard white to a slab fossil grey door with brushed nickle handles. Also upgraded the counters. While it's a laminate, it has a decorative edge and a superior finish - laminates have come a long way.
After 60 years, it was time to update this kitchen. Improved layout and design!
An antique white shaker-style (Prestige line, model SK00) with a 7" pull brushed nickle handle.
Not only was this kitchen swapped with the dining room space, but two walls were moved to support a more open concept.
With many older homes, the kitchen is small. Sometimes the solutions are as simple as moving the kitchen into the dining room and starting fresh.
Sometimes, your space is good--you just want to update. Little mess, cheaper, and faster. Cabinets refaced and new counter tops and fixtures.
Sometimes there is absolutely nothing wrong with your kitchen - but after 25 years it's time for a new look. Here they went from slab cream-coloured doors to a dark walnut shaker-style cabinet.
Refacing: Antique white pillow slab doors and Corian countertops.
The original honey oak (popular in the 1980s) replaced with a 5-piece Prestige line door in Chocolate Oak. Some additional changes: converting bottom doors to pot-and-pan drawers, farm-apron sink, custom vent hood.
Replace the original doors and hardware with something fresh. At the same time, we upgraded a few components and created a new kitchen. Cascade White with the 10000 style door.
If your cabinets are dated but in good shape (and you like your kitchen layout) then you might want to consider refacing. About 30% of the cost and without the mess and disruption of a full renovation.
