Buying or selling a home with outdated kitchen?
In today's housing market, sometimes it is more difficult than ever to get a home sold, especially if the focal-point of the home is a kitchen that hasn't been updated for a many years.
If the cabinets are sound and function well, they can be given a fresh, new look by refacing them. This is a process of changing the doors and drawers on the existing cabinets to a newer style; the specie can be changed and the finish can be updated too.
Current upgrades in materials, adhesives, and installation techniques make this a viable option.
Refacing is a relatively inexpensive way to update the kitchen and help sell a home compared to the cost of a total remodel.
Or, if you are on the buying side, you could get a home by offering less money, then have the cabinets refaced.
