Cabinet Refacing

Cabinet RefacingOne of the more affordable ways to improve the appearance of your kitchen or bathroom is to re-face the cabinets. Design by John can re-face cabinets in Boise, Meridian, and Eagle Idaho. You will be surprised to see what a tremendous difference a cabinet re-facing project can make to the look and feel of your home.

Cabinet refacing is the process of replacing only the visible portions of your cabinets. Rather than purchasing completely new cabinets - which includes the frames, shelves, and so on - the option exists to simply replace the cabinet doors. This is cabinet refacing in a nutshell.

The primary benefit of cabinet refacing as opposed to completely replacing your cabinets is that you will save money. The difference can be quite dramatic, which allows you to invest in other aspects of your home remodeling project. In addition to the financial savings that cabinet refacing affords home owners, it also saves on the building materials required to make new cabinets. Therefore, cabinet refacing can be an environmentally friendly decision as well. Think of it like a form of recycling of your old cabinets.

Cabinet refacing gives the home owner two options. First, you can have a skilled cabinet designer refinish the existing doors on your cabinets. Design by John knows the best cabinet refinish experts in Boise, Meridian, and Eagle, and we can remove and deliver your cabinet doors to one of these companies. When the refinishing process is complete, Design by John will pick up and re-install your cabinets in your kitchen or bathroom. This is a great option for people who are interested in saving money on their home remodeling project. It’s also a great way to restore antique pieces which are probably a key component of the look and feel of your older home.

The second option is to have your cabinet doors completely replaced. This will provide an opportunity for significant changes to the appearance of your cabinets, whether they are in a kitchen, bathroom, or storage area in your home. Contact Design by John to discuss the details of your cabinet refacing in Boise, Meridian, or Eagle.

We are quite please with the way you pulled together fixtures, a recessed cabinet, tile, and shelves in the restricted space that we had (since we were unwilling to give up the coat closet. We now have a very attractive, luxurious even, functional bathroom.

We hired John Brady, owner of Design by John, to remodel our kitchen. It was a complete remodel with everything removed down to the bare walls. Our home is an early 1960’s brick ranch. Needless to say, John found some interesting things as he peeled off the layers.

We felt John’s bid was reasonable, and the time frame to do the job kept us out of our kitchen for only slightly over five weeks—miraculous! The job began June 9 and was finished July 16.

In the five or so years that I had the opportunity to work with John Brady with Design by John, I’ve had the chance to observe his ability to be a professional. My observations are that he is very dependable by being on the job when he said that he would be there. He gets the job completed in a timely manner with very few problems. If a situation arises, he knows how to resolve the situation and continue. This keeps a good working relationship with his clients.

Just a few words of praise for our remodel job, which you did for use during the month of July. Every aspect of the remodel was handled with care, precision, and professionalism. It involved a new Corian counter-top and sink, complete redo of the kitchen ceiling to accommodate can lights, under-cabinet lighting, trim molding, new front closet doors, and red oak hardwood floors covering about 800 square feet.

Dear John,

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the fine work you did installing my WilsonArt Estate flooring during the recent kitchen remodel that you completed for me. I greatly appreciate the extra time you took to get the floor looking great, despite the inconsistent quality of the flooring product.
