Countertop material for the island doesn't have to match the rest of your kitchen countertops as long as it is harmonious with the room's overall design. You may want to splurge on solid surfacing here, for example, and use laminate on the other countertops. A butcher-block countertop is ideal for chopping, while granite or marble works well for baking purposes and for rolling pastry dough.
Affordability: The average cost to reface a kitchen will be anywhere between $3,500 to 6,500 depending on the size of the kitchen. The average cost to replace a kitchen starts at around $20,000 to $40,00. The reason is simple, refacing makes use of your old, structurally sound cabinets. Why tear out perfectly good cabinets, only to replace them with perfectly good cabinets? The truth is, your old cabinets are often better constructed than today's cabinets. This is one of the reasons why refacing was such a great idea 35 years ago and is still going strong today.
Fast: Cabinet refacing can be done on average in 2-4 days. Doors and drawer fronts are sprayed and prepared ahead of time, delivered to your kitchen and hung. Unlike painting or refinishing your cabinets, refacing will not leave any toxic fumes lingering in your home. If you choose to add extra cabinets or an island, it doesn't necessarily lengthen the average refacing time. On the other hand, if you choose to replace your cabinets it will be a huge and pricey undertaking that could take a month or more to complete.
