White Is Always Right
This is an example of our most common new look. Sturdy oak cabinets with decades of life still left in them are brought up-to-date with new full overlay maple doors with a white finish. New stone counters are the icing on the cake. The homeowners have added more selling price to their house than they spent on the kitchen.
This elegant home needed kitchen cabinets as rich as the surrounding furnishings. So our client chose a detailed raised panel door style with applied moulding in cherry wood. The result is a warm new look great for weekend culinary and entertaining feats (check out the beverage frig).
White over gray is becoming more and more popular. You get the bright open airiness of white and the practical durability of gray bases. This combination also opens up a wide range of gray and white countertop and flooring choices.
The Wild Blue Yonder
Want to add some pop to your décor? Any of the 1400 Sherwin-Williams paint colors can be converted to a stain for your kitchen (there is an upcharge). So let your imagination soar.
Black & White
The lady of this house wanted a timeless black and white combination. She chose the classic raised panel door in maple wood with an Antique White. We topped it off with black quartz counters. A trash pullout was added right of the sink. The savings with Nu-Look can really add up in a large kitchen like this.
Tidy It Up
Small kitchen spaces are tidied up and feel larger with white cabinets. This new look was enhanced by affordable space utilization improvements like new base cabinet rollout shelves. New laminate counters like this are still your most economical alternative.
Just Doors Please
Sometimes all the new look you need is in the doors and drawerfronts. These handy homeowners painted the cabinet boxes to match before we installed new dovetail drawer boxes on full-extension glides. We added full overlay Shaker style doors and drawerfronts with stainless cup pulls to update the kitchen for just a few thousand dollars.
These folks had already had new white stone counters installed. But what a difference the classic Shaker maple wood door with a white finish accented by stainless bar pulls made. Note the new independent style lazy susan. White counters on white cabinets is a very popular new look. We can arrange the counters for you with our trade discount.
The cabinets over and to the left of the cooking area were poorly laid out. We reconfigured the existing boxes for symmetry and large pots & pans drawers. The new look of cherry wood doors and drawerfronts with a natural finish is always popular. We can add brand new cabinets, but always try first to work with your existing boxes to save you money.
Here’s a great example of gaining a whole new look for the kitchen while preserving the existing black stone counters. The maple wood doors have a white opaque stain finish highlighted with a pewter glaze. The island is in ebony which makes the floor look brighter and is echoed by the wall tile. Crown moulding and a glass corner door helped make this kitchen into a cook’s oasis.
Knotty Pine Redux
Built-in cabinets, like these in knotty pine, will stand as long as the house. Removing built-ins is very messy and expensive; often requiring new drywall. All they need is a new look. These folks went with hard maple wood doors with minimal grain. We almost always add new dovetail drawer boxes on full extension glides to old built-ins, and they are so worth it.
The Big Green Machine kitchen had served the family well and the kids loved it, but now that the kids are out of the house it was time for a change. Replacing the giant hood opened up the room to the dining area. The white wall cabinet finish on top of gray bases is contemporary and practical. The new quartz counters are offset by a unique tile all arranged by Nu-Look. By the way, a new look is a lot more environmentally-friendly than a tear out.
You’ve Earned It
This family with young kids moved into a new house with cherry wood cabinet that were just ten years old. They wanted white but had a hard time justifying the cost and hassle of a tear out. They found that our new look was the perfect solution (and now the homeowner tells us her neighbors are jealous).
Light to Dark
Not too long ago everyone had mid tone cabinets with mid tone floors and counters. The new looks today are more layered with bands of color. That’s why dark rich wood finishes like this new look are up and coming.
New Cabinets Too
This client wanted to lose the wall oven in favor of a chef’s range. We cut back their existing granite top to make room and replaced the wall oven cabinet with new narrower wall and base cabinets. After refacing thousands of kitchens over nearly fifty years, we pride ourselves on designing creative new looks.
Your new look can incorporate the clean lines and smooth finishes characteristic of Scandinavian design. These doors have a laminate finish that is easily maintained. Here we also built the existing cabinet boxes to the ceiling.
No Job Too Large
Whatever the size of your kitchen, large or small, we can save you a lot of time, trouble, and thousands compared to all new cabinets. Most of our customers can afford all new, but they know that with our top quality materials and workmanship, their new look can be just as good.
Remember these old Euro style cabinets? They’re actually a very sturdy box and reface beautifully. This new look features bamboo wood. “Exotic” species like Hickory, Walnut, and Mahogany are not common but we can give you virtually any new look you want.
