It serves as a hub for family gatherings, entertaining friends, celebrating holidays, working from home, or preparing meals.

Cabinet Painting

If your cabinet boxes are in good condition and you’re happy with the current style of your cabinet doors and the layout of your kitchen, this may be a good option for you. Painting is the most affordable way to change the overall look of your kitchen. The most common cabinets that homeowners have painted are oak. Oak can have a heavy graining, and may show through. Similar to painting your walls, painted cabinets are prone to knicks or dings from everyday use. If you are looking for a solution that will last approximately 2-5 years (depending on the use of your kitchen), cabinet painting might be the right update for you. If you prefer having a non-grain door, would like to update the current door style of your cabinets and looking for a more durable and longer-term solution, redooring or refacing may be a better service option. Your Kitchen Consultant can discuss your goals and desired outcome and help you determine your best kitchen update options.  

Cabinet Painting Average Price Range: $4,000-$10,000 and up

Countertops, storage accessories and lighting are other components of your kitchen update or remodel to be considered.
Prices for countertops range from $1,500 to $6,000 or more, depending on the material chosen (e.g., laminate, granite, quartz) and the size of the kitchen. Accessories and lighting will vary depending on the products chosen and size of space. 

How Prices Vary Based on Size, Products, and Service: 

  • Size of the Space: Larger kitchens generally cost more to remodel than smaller kitchens, as they require more materials and labor.

  • Products Used: The choice of materials and products can greatly impact the overall cost. High-end materials will cost more than budget-friendly options. 

  • Service Chosen: The Kitchen Tune-Up core service you choose will also affect the cost. Our Kitchen Consultants are here as a trusted expert and resource to assist in determining which solution best fits your needs and investment level. 

As you explore possibilities for your kitchen update or remodel, compiling a list of preferences and dislikes about your current kitchen can be invaluable. Sharing this list, along with your goals, inspiration photos, and budgetary considerations, with your Kitchen Consultant enables them to tailor a solution that aligns perfectly with your needs. At Kitchen Tune-Up, our objective is to lead you to a solution that not only meets but exceeds your expectations, ensuring that you create cherished memories in your updated and uplifted kitchen space.
