Is Refacing right for me and my home?

Of course, that's a question only you can answer, but here are some guidelines.

First of all, your existing cabinetry must be structurally sound. If it's not, it really makes no sense to give a new face to a wobbly or worn-out structure. 

Just as important, does the basic layout of your kitchen meet your needs? Not too long ago, most homes were designed with the kitchen closed off from other areas of the home. Today, people like kitchens that are more open, more of a "public space," often bounded by an island or peninsula. If your current kitchen is closed off and you want to open it up, you most likely will have to remove a wall or two and add some entirely new cabinets. That means Renew's highly-flexible nature is uniquely suited to your project

There are also practical factors to consider. A refacing project often can be completed much quicker than a full remodel, with less disruption to your life. If that's important to you, Renew is a great choice.

If you've recently done other upgrades to the kitchen, like new counter tops or flooring, refacing lets you retain them. And if you're hoping to sell your home soon, Renew gives a kitchen or bath an entirely updated look, at a lower total project cost that does not bite off too much precious equity.

However, a remodel can be a big, complicated job. If you're going to "DIY" or work with a "big-box" home center, all the stress and hidden pitfalls are yours and yours alone. (And that's especially true if you're adding new cabinets or accents to the mix.) But when you work with a Showplace Renew dealer, their substantial experience is on your side. They know what to plan for, what to avoid, and how to get everything done with the least disruption to your life.
