3 Reasons To First Consider: Kitchen Restyling Versus Replacement Cabinets

Listed are 3 reasons to consider when deciding on kitchen restyling and replacement cabinets.

1. Time

The typical kitchen restyling job can be done in as little as 2 days with some larger kitchens taking 3 to 4 days. This is a lot less time than having a full kitchen remodel which takes most contractors 6 weeks on average to complete.

2. Money

Restyling your existing cabinets saves a lot of money when compared to replacing your cabinets. Restyling saves around 50% of the cost when comparing apples to apples with replacement cabinets.

Replacement cabinets also require that the countertop, sink, and faucet be replaced, and if you have a tiled backsplash or want one, it will need to be added to the overall time and expense of the remodel.

3. Environmentally Friendly

Let’s face it, most people would rather not add trash to the landfill if given the option. Restyling lets you use your existing cabinet boxes without having to tear them out. Your old doors and drawer fronts will be repurposed, if possible, to allow us to install new ones.


Restyling your Cabinets is NOT painting them. Anyone can paint your cabinets for you, you don’t need Newberry Home Improvement for that. We install a new face over your existing cabinets and rout, file, and sand to make the new face become a permanent part of your cabinet boxes. Then, we install new doors, drawer fronts, hinges, and hardware to complete the look.

The idea is simple: We want your friends, family, and your neighbors to look at your cabinets and say, “you had new cabinets installed” versus “You had your cabinets painted”. There is a big difference! And, it only cost slightly more than repainting.
