Refacing those 70’s Cabinets

Lately most of the kitchens that I have refaced remind me of my childhood in the 1970’s. Gone are the days of very dark Mediterranean styles with heavy looking hardware and brightly colored accessories.  At the time Spanish Oak cabinets with large bulky handles combined with Kitchen cabinet refacing today makes more sense than ever.

If your parents were really “with it” you may have even had some matching Ozite carpet on the kitchen floor to match the the color of your walls. I’m so glad that today in contrast most recent clients are choosing Maple or Cherry for their wood of choice. Combining that with a Shaker style door and drawer detail looks fantastic.  Add some concealed hinges, crown molding, matching toe kick and the next thing you know those dated cabinets look new again.
