The good news for cost-conscious homeowners is that kitchen cabinet refacing is becoming more popular and acceptable, even favored, among home improvement connoisseurs. As the newspaper’s expert points out, “The technology and composition of the new doors and drawer-fronts is so good that if you were standing across the kitchen you would not be able to tell if your cabinet had a wood door or a refaced door”. Once you organize your kitchen and your thoughts about the kitchen, it becomes easy to give it that much-needed triple bypass. All it takes is a little creativity and imagination to create a room that is the envy of your friends and neighbours.
Kitchen cabinet doors can be sanded and re-painted using any color and texture you choose or stripped using a variety of chemical products available at any home supply store. It is always important to read the label and precautions on any chemical stripper prior to using them. Rinse off the acid as soon as the stain disappears. If you accidentally lighten an area too much, apply a matching gel stain to the spot and let it dry before proceeding. Rinse, dry: Rinse the pasty residue from the surface very well with terry cloth or a sea sponge; synthetic sponges don’t work very well. Dry the surface as quickly as you can.
