The counter and storage space that is offered by a island countertop can make a kitchen roomier and easier to use. A homeowner may find that the installation of a kitchen island top will add value to the kitchen because it is more useful and easier to navigate. A homeowner can choose the style and design of the kitchen island counter based on what he or she thinks will make the kitchen look the best. There are also many options for accessories such as electrical outlets, stove tops, casters, and extra eating space.
A island counter can be a great place to put a microwave, blender or mixer. Some islands can have electrical outlets installed and can allow for the operation of these appliances while they are resting on the counter. A island countertop can also have a stove top installed to allow for more cooking space in the kitchen. These islands may also need to be equipped with an exhaust fan for the stove top. The design of a kitchen island is completely up to the homeowner.
Change: If you are tired of looking at the same cabinets again and again and you wish you would have more functional cabinets then you can always change the cabinets. If you are a small family or you are not a family yet then you would not bother about the kitchen cabinets much. But when the size of the family grows, you will need to use the kitchen more often. In that case, the kitchen needs to be much more functional and comfortable for sure.
When refacing your kitchen you might want to consider adding new countertops or an island. Treat yourself to those extras you've always wanted, such as, a Lazy Susan, space savers, spice racks and pull outs. With the money you'll be saving by refacing, you may choose to purchase some new appliances. If you need help with visualizing your kitchen, there are hundreds of before and after photos of kitchen refacing right on the web. Kitchen remodeling magazines can give you some great ideas as to what would be the best door choices and colors for your kitchen.
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.
