Do you want to renovate your bathroom, laundry  or kitchen? Wondering “how much is that going to cost me?” Surprisingly enough, a kitchen, bathroom or laundry renovation doesn’t  cost an arm and a leg. When the team at Dianella Polishing is asked to come and quote on cabinet refinishing, we are usually met with the same expression “wow, I didn’t realise I can get a new kitchen at such a low price”!

Vinyl wrapped kitchens rose in popularity in the 80s and 90s. Which means a good majority of the kitchens we see today peel or crack.  The vinyl doors don’t last. However  kitchen cabinet materials such as laminate, melamine or even timber are the better option. It doesn’t matter what your cabinets are made of, we can usually refinish them.

What is Cabinet Refinishing?

Cabinet refinishing means a new look without changing the physical hardware. Most kitchens use the space fairly well. Designers utilise the entire space available. Therefore it is not necessary to repalce the cabinets, when renovating these rooms. The cabinet’s original material does impact on the refinishing process. We typically remove the vinyl and glue of vinyl wrapped cabinets first. The next step painting them. On the other hand we paint laminate and timber cabinet directly.

How Much Will It Cost?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to how much refinishing your kitchen, bathroom or laundry cabinets will cost. We cannot quote a ‘standard price’ per door. Each refinsihing project is unique. However, we typically say that kitchen, bathroom or laundry refinishing costs about a third of the price of an entire cabinet renovation. Though the price will depend on various factors, it is almost certain you will save money.
