Want to redesign your kitchen in 3 to 5 days? The options are plentiful — you just have to know where to look.

Try kitchen cabinet refacing

One major change that will turn heads is cabinet refacing, where you’re literally putting a new face (doors and drawers) on your cabinets. Check out this kitchen cabinet refacing overview and do some research on the key benefits:

  1. It’s quick — 3 to 5 days, depending on how many other products you are replacing, such as the countertop and sink.
  2. It’s economical — often $5,000 to $10,000 less than buying new kitchen cabinets.
  3. It’s “Green” — because it keeps your cabinet boxes out of the landfill. Just make sure your supplier makes or ships them from nearby.

Avoid kitchen remodeling pitfalls

As with any home improvement project, you’ll want to plan, measure the kitchen cabinets, and select your finishes carefully. Think about what will blend with your home’s existing moldings, doors, and window trim. Here are some kitchen cabinet refacing pitfalls to avoid.

One downside to cabinet refacing is that the stunning new look can cast a negative light on other older parts of your kitchen. Imagine your scratched stainless steel sink or chipped laminate countertop right next to shiny, new cherry doors! Then, consider adding a few other niceties:

  1. A double bowl kitchen sink
  2. A sprayer faucet
  3. A granite countertop

Combine cabinet refacing with fancy wall tile

The finishing touch is your wall tile, which can help coordinate colors, textures, and patterns. Consider Italian stone in 12-inch squares, granite in large sheets or 2-inch glass tiles.

Kitchen remodeling is full of surprises, especially when you can pull it together within 5 days. That’s a timeline anyone can live through without too much fuss!
