My old house in downtown Flagstaff, Az. has painted dark metal cabinets. Is cabinet refacing possible with metal? I'd like to order new metal cabinet doors and repaint the cabinet cases. If the costs are similar, I'll instead scrap the cabinets and order assemble-yourself cabinets from Home Depot, though I'm concerned about cabinet installation. Which way is most cost-effective?
We'd like to reface the cabinets in our farm house near Spokane, Washington, with new doors. The old sagging hinges are visible on the outside when the doors are shut. If we get a door style with hidden hinges, will the old screw holes be visible?
I thought the panels in the kitchen cabinets looked a little swollen, but now a carpenter tells me that three are actually buckled. I don't think anything cosmetic can help. Am I looking at a total cabinet replacement, or can the existing cabinet doors be fixed and matched correctly? Is the savings of repair over replacement worth considering?
My kitchen cabinets look worn out and ugly. I love the idea of replacing the cabinet doors, but I'm not sure I want laminate. Is there a less expensive way to add new cabinet doors with those attractive glass inserts without breaking the bank?
