You HATE your kitchen! If it wasn’t for the fact that you’d starve and die if you didn’t cook there, you’d never even enter the room… or maybe your dislike is not quite as extreme. Perhaps you’d just prefer it look a little less dated or maybe you despise oak and long for a more modern feel. Maybe your dream kitchen is a Tuscan villa with ornamental details and a massive crown molding. You just wish you could change those cabinets but you know that ripping them out for the quality that you desire is just too expensive. BUT, what if your cabinets can be redressed as the cabinets that you desire and you could save thousands of dollars doing it? Maybe that dream kitchen is not so far out of reach after all, with the right partner in your remodel.
J&M Custom Millwork & Remodeling has been in the dream kitchen business for over seventeen years. My company, Fashion House Interior Design Co, LLC works very well with them creating full custom kitchens to refacing kitchens in Arizona. Not only do they offer custom cabinetry to span your home, but they’ve perfected the refacing project in every way. Most refacing projects take between 3-5 days to complete and cost 30-50% less than replacing your cabinets. Once completed, your kitchen looks like full custom cabinetry, yet not one cabinet has been removed.
Before, this client’s cabinets were lifeless natural maple with recessed doors. They had just redone their countertops, thinking they’d love their kitchen once they added them…but they didn’t!
They were just too plain, too blah! Had they decided to replace their cabinets, they would have stayed with the exact same layout (there’s really no other way to design this space and their storage was more than enough for their needs). They just hated the look. They longed for a Tuscan retreat that fit in with the rest of their home’s decor. They got a price from Home Depot’s refacing division and it was $18,000 to reface their kitchen, without the bells and whistles they desired! Even worse than that, at Home Depot you have to pay 100% up front. Sure, you can put it all on a credit card (if they approve such a charge), but you’ll accrue interest and turn your kitchen into a major expense.
Together, my client and I designed the details of the kitchen of her dreams and with minimal additional expense we added an overly dramatic crown with corbels, full extension roll out shelves in all base cabinets and appliques to create her look. Most stock and semi-custom cabinets have a recess on the sides (used to flush out your cabinets when attaching to a wall) Custom cabinets are completely flush. We add plywood panels to achieve a look of full custom cabinetry.
And here is the end result! Gorgeous and rich, this once 90’s modern maple kitchen is reborn as a Tuscan paradise.
She loved it SO much that we then removed her island and created a custom piece to complete the transformation- for just $2,200. Oh, did I forget to mention… this kitchen refacing project cost my clients just $8,500 plus their custom island. NO ONE in this area can do this size job for this price. My clients know, they tried!
You too can have such a transformation to your space for far less than you ever imagined! Take a look at another one of my client’s remodels and see if you may just need the high quality that J&M can offer you! Natural oak raised panels before…
Chocolate shaker panel after… with glass and marble mosaic tile and new granite for just under $10,000! That’s 42″ high cabinets, new tile splash, new granite counters and a higher height bar counter at the island, new stainless undermount sink and new 6″ stainless steel pulls for their doors and drawers.
