Cabinet Refacing

Cabinet Refacing in Milwaukee

RefacingWhat is It?

Refacing your cabinets is a great update to a kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, or any combination thereof.  In a nutshell, refacing means that you’re having new doors and/or drawer fronts built to replace the ones you currently have. The boxes themselves -where you store all your goodies- remain in place and for the most part go unchanged in this process.  However, one could include a new island, removal of a built-in-desk unit, or more at this time while we handle your cabinet refacing in Southeastern Wisconsin.  Additionally, this can also be a great time to update hinges and other hardware, or add new drawer slides, put in soft close features, and more like a replacement countertop.

The Problem You’ll Likely Encounter:

What homeowners eventually find out (unless they call us right away) is that cabinet makers (who build the doors and drawer fronts) don’t generally paint the cabinet boxes in your home, and the painting company doesn’t build the doors.  This means that when you call a cabinet maker, you’ll need to find a painter, or if you find the painter (Colorwheel) you’ll need a cabinet shop!  Nobody really does both.  But…

The Solution:

Recognizing the need for both cabinet refinishing and cabinet refacing in Milwaukee, Colorwheel DOES have several key referrals we can provide to you, so this will all come together perfectly.  With each of those referrals, we’d work hand in hand to make your project happen. They build, we finish.  Typically, this can mean Colorwheel does the painting of all the new doors/drawers and the boxes, so everything matches.  OR, we can paint just the boxes using paint that matches the cabinet makers finish applied to the doors/drawers.  Either is completely acceptable, it just depends on your exact cabinet refacing project in Southeastern Wisconsin.  Our only words of caution:

  1. If the cabinet maker finishes their own doors, this is likely NOT paint, and NOT likely to touch up well come that time…
  2. The sheen of the finish from a cabinet maker will NOT be the exact same sheen as a paint used by Colorwheel.  Even though both may be satin, stain finishes have a range.. meaning a satin from one manufacturer or product is NOT the same exact sheen as another product or manufacturer.  The only way to overcome this is to have Colorwheel paint all items.

What to Do?

Your best course of action is to contact us for cabinet refacing in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and we’ll facilitate a meeting between you the homeowner, ourselves, and a cabinet maker who’d be responsible for the doors/drawer face and any other physical alterations to the cabinet system.
