If you’re like many of us in Atlanta these days, you’ve been spending more time at home: saving money, cooking more. We’re all having more family game nights and less fancy family dinners out; all in all, not a bad thing. However, you may have found as you’re using your kitchen more, the view beyond the Monopoly board leaves something to be desired. Remodeling is a preferable option to selling, but the thought of spending the money to completely renovate your kitchen can be daunting during these times. There is a sensible option that can give your kitchen a dramatic new look. You can undertake what we in the industry lovingly refer to as a “facelift.”
Many people mistakenly think this involves re-facing existing cabinetry, but that is not the way to get the biggest bang for your buck. Did you know re-facing your cabinets generally costs over 60% of tearing out and replacing your cabinets? And much like a cosmetic surgery facelift, you’ll want to use a professional for your project. Without professional guidance you can unknowingly get yourself into a kitchen-based predicament. For example, many people get the idea to strictly replace their countertops to change the look of their kitchen – but they don’t think about the future possibilities for the space! They find themselves with beautiful granite on average cabinets and appliances which they are now stuck with because the granite has been cut to fit what was already in place!
A kitchen facelift cannot solve most function problems with a kitchen, as the perimeter cabinets typically stay put. Often times cabinets are added however. (A complete kitchen renovation could completely change the footprint of the cabinetry and how the kitchen is used)
In the example shown a new island has been added and the cooktop moved there. This added more prep and landing space around this appliance and did help with cooking and cleaning functions as well as seating in the kitchen. New cabinetry was also added to create a desk space and additional storage for this kitchen.
The remodeling process for a kitchen facelift is typically faster and the investment is typically smaller while the change is still very dramatic!
