Let’s face it, the cost of kitchen cabinet refacing in New Orleans is very appealing when compared to purchasing brand new kitchen cabinets.  By simply replacing doors, adding new knobs and a little elbow grease, you can easily save thousands of dollars over the cost of a bran new remodel.  So I wrote this article to show you how to reface kitchen cabinets in new orleans.

Before you reface your kitchen be sure to thoroughly clean your kitchen cabinets.  Set up is key.  Protect your cabinets and floors, use rubber gloves and also if you are earth conscious use a cleaner that has low or all natural chemicals.  Use a wet cloth and give the cabinets time to dry.

Step 2: Sanding and Refinishing before you refinish your cabinets

There are countless sites that focus on how to sand and refinish the base of your cabinets, so read them first.  But if you are comfortable talking to your local home depot or lowes rep, you will find that sanding has come a long way. In fact there are liquid sanders that do the same job.  The key to a great new orleans kitchen cabinet refacing project is to keep some type of French connection and sand properly.

Step 3: Pick your Cabinet Doors and Knobs

There are many task that will give you the professional look you want.  Before you begin Emeril styled dinner parites, be sure that you have a kitchen that is up to the task.  Until then see you at your next kitchen cabinet installation job.
