How Colour Matching Could Help Your Kitchen Renovation
Bringing life back to an outdated kitchen is often a lot simpler than you would expect. When a home is starting to look lived in and dated, the first room on the “renovation wish list” is usually the kitchen, bathroom or laundry. These rooms are the some of the most well used rooms in the house and because of this, they often require renovation attention first.
Getting your kitchen cabinets refinished instead of replaced typically costs about a third of the price. Almost any cabinet surface can be painted, as long as the underlying MDF is still in good workable condition. One of the biggest benefits of refinishing your cabinets is the fact that paint can be colour matched to almost any colour. So even if you only want a few cabinets in your kitchen, bathroom or laundry to be refinished, it can be done.
Vinyl kitchens of the 90’s and 00’s are amongst the most popular to be renovated at the moment. The lifespan of vinyl cabinets is typically 10-15 years, and after the the glue will start to lose its adhesiveness and the vinyl will begin to crack and peel. Unfortunately the peeling process does not happen overnight and though one cabinet may begin to peel another may not. This can lead to your kitchen, bathroom or laundry cabinets all looking different and having different levels of wear and tear. If you can’t afford to refinish your entire kitchen, but don’t want unsightly peeling cabinets in one of the most utilised rooms of your house, colour matching may be the answer for you.
Painted cabinets can be almost perfectly colour matched to any vinyl, laminate or previously painted kitchen. If one or two cabinets are peeling, they can be removed from your kitchen and brought into the workshop to be matched to your existing cabinets. This gives your kitchen new life, while keeping the renovation costs low until you can afford a full kitchen, bathroom or laundry renovation.
Colour matching is also a popular solution when adding new cabinets into your home. When starting the renovation process, restyling the most outdated part of your kitchen can result in changing cabinets which are around large appliances such as the fridge, oven or stove. These changes can be easily painted and colour matched to the existing kitchen layout so that you don’t need to get the entire kitchen refinished.
Colour matching is one of the many flexible options that painted your kitchen, bathroom or laundry cabinets can offer. Removing and replacing your current cabinets is not the only way renovations can be complete. Sometimes the smallest changes will make the biggest difference in bringing new life to your home.
