New Cabinets Spells the Difference in Home Renovation



Remodeling your bath and your kitchen is one of the best known ways to upgrade your home and give it a higher resale value. Home renovation can put a strain on your budget; however, if there is one thing that you can change without spending a lot of money, it is redoing your kitchen and bath cabinets. These two rooms are probably the most frequently used areas of the home and the cabinetry is one of the major focal points used in both rooms.

Updating or simply refinishing/repainting your cabinets will give both of these rooms different appeal that is low on the budget. You’ll have to consider that you will need to allot some time and space for these projects so plan ahead. For example, if the household has only one bathroom, certain accommodations will have to be made.


Common things to look for when inspecting your cabinets: water damage, mold, scratches, drawer interiors, and paint/finish. After evaluating your cabinets, you can determine how, or if they can be refinished. Older cabinets may need to be replaced instead of just repainted or refinished. Except for simple touch ups or small scratches, you will most likely have to remove the existing finish before applying the new color or stain.


With regards to your bathroom, aside from redoing your cabinets, you might also want to replace or upgrade certain items like: fixtures, knobs, mirrors, medicine cabinets and vanity counter tops.

If you are working on a tight budget but would still want to make improvements on your home, there are websites that you can check that offer inexpensive home accessories. However, if replacing your cabinets is the only option, call or visit Builders Surplus for more information.


with your Saratoga bath vanity series, can you please tell me the height of the legs, and under-side clearance of the unit? I have some plumbing and heating that needs to be taken into consideration, so the Saratoga's leg-height is important.

Clearance from ground to top of legs/bottom of skirt is 6". The vanity cabinet sits on skirt allowing additional 1 3/4" (7 3/4" total) to actual bottom of vanity cabinet. Thanks for visiting our website and hope to see you soon !

Why does your site not have any prices? Hard to determine whether drive is worth it from P'dale if there's nothing for me to see. Photos with prices would be very, very helpful and appreciated. Thank you.
