We are very pleased with Kitchen Makeovers. The updated look improved our old natural maple cabinets and brightened up the kitchen.
Our cabinets were beginning to look worn and scruffy around some of the ‘high-touch’ areas: counter edges, cabinet door pulls etc. but the basic layout was fine and cabinets were in good condition -they just needed cleaning.
We were impressed with how hard the crew worked in order to get everything ready for painting, and they provided lots of advance notice about what to expect and was needed from us- mainly clearing out the contents and being patient about living without the kitchen for a few days.
Although we think we’re pretty organized, Kitchen Makeovers were great about last minute decisions: helping us choose (42) replacement knobs, replacing some of the corroded hinges, and finding a new under-sink garbage bin (we decided on one from Richelieu hardware ).
The resulting appearance stands up to close scrutiny because they pay a lot of attention to detail. There are a few spots were they couldn’t do a perfect job because the wood was sealed behind glass and silicone sealant, which made it impossible to paint, but we have to look hard to find any noticeable defects.
We chose to have the kitchen spray painted and this included removing the door and drawer fronts to repair and spray paint them in their shop. This is the same treatment as for brand new doors and drawers and it looks like new.
In summary: we recommend Kitchen Makeovers to anyone who wants to upgrade their kitchen but doesn’t need major cabinet changes. They give you a brand new looking kitchen at a fraction of what a full cabinet replacement would cost and we are glad we chose them for this.
