Kitchen Tune-Up Unveils Project of the Month Winners for April 2021

From a dramatic, ceiling-to-floor renovation to a one-day wood reconditioning job, Kitchen Tune-Up owners around the country prove that no job is too big or too small. The same attention to detail goes into every one of these award-winning projects. Take a look at these April winners and see why homeowners choose KTU to turn kitchen dreams into realities.

Kitchen Tune-Up project of the Month May

Paul and Kathryn Jost
Denver, CO

This project is a great example of Kitchen Tune-Up’s Redooring Plus service. This client’s kitchen had dark wood slab doors that shrank the space visually, and the Josts and their team replaced doors and drawer fronts with maple doors in the versatile Shaker style, painted a serene Folkstone gray. The lighter color perks up the previously dim kitchen, and the addition of crown molding gives a polished look. The bar-shaped, black drawer pulls and door handles provide visual contrast against the pale gray cabinets.


April Project of the Month Winner


Steve Bonezek
Tinley Park, IL

Steve Bonezek is new to Kitchen Tune-Up in 2020, but this winning project shows he and his team already have what it takes to make clients happy. They refaced the cabinet frames, then replaced the old flat-panel oak doors with Kitchen Tune-Up’s exclusive Haglundridge doors in glacier white. Gorgeous Cambria countertops complemented the doors and picked up on the cool gray tone of the new subway tile backsplash.


May Kitchen Tune-Up Project of the Month


Adam and Rachel Phillips
Wichita, KS

Matte black granite countertops add drama to this stunning remodel. From ceiling to floor, this project took the existing space from dull to dynamic. The client wanted all-new cabinets and the Kitchen Tune-Up Wichita, KS team installed maple Shaker cabinets in a light tone called alabaster. The kitchen island is stained a contrasting gray, and features convenient pull-out drawers that let the clients see and reach every item easily. Look at the backsplash, too: The old, square tiles are gone, replaced with elegant rectangular tiles in a herringbone pattern. New lighting brightens the kitchen with a trio of industrial-style lamps over the island.


May Kitchen Tune-Up Project of the Month


Lynn and Pat Aman
Aberdeen, SD

A cocoa glaze on top of antique white doors highlights the cabinets’ details and gives them a charming, old-world look. The client chose Shaker style doors and Kitchen Tune-Up Aberdeen added glass-fronted cabinets at the top, extending the cabinets to the ceiling. This winning project in the redooring category shows how a few changes like new doors and the simple addition of small cabinets can transform an entire kitchen.


May Kitchen Tune-Up Project of the Month


Andy Thompson and Bobby and Ashley Kuhns
Green Bay, WI

The one-day Tune-Up wood reconditioning process is Kitchen Tune-Up’s signature service, and this project is a classic example of how a Tune-Up makes cabinets look new. The drawer fronts were scraped, dinged and faded, but the Kitchen Tune-Up Green Bay, WI team deep cleaned the wood, covered the damage, and restored the wood to its original glow. New hardware brings sparkle and an updated look to the cabinetry. Kitchen Tune-Up performed its Tune-Up magic on the kitchen doors and bathroom vanity for this client.


May Kitchen Tune-Up Project of the Month


Dan and Tina Wilson
McKinney, TX

A cabinet painting project highlights how much change you can get simply by painting, without any new cabinetry. This kitchen already had eye-catching shapes like the arch over the stove and the big, elegant island. But the extremely dark cabinets and island weighed down the space. Kitchen Tune-Up McKinney, TX painted the cabinets a soothing shade called dried thyme, while the island is repose gray. New countertops and a new backsplash complete the look–and notice how the backsplash’s glossy tile now brings even more light into the kitchen.

How to Update Your Kitchen with Cabinet Redooring

You want to update your kitchen but don’t want the hassles or expense of a renovation. What if you could upgrade to a fresh, new look inexpensively and quickly–in one to two days?  You can. Just replace your cabinet doors. You’ll be amazed at the difference Kitchen Tune-Up’s redooring service can make!

Before & After Cabinet Redooring

What Is Redooring?

The name says it all: we change the cabinet doors and drawer fronts, installing new ones to match your current cabinet frames (or “boxes”). Thanks to our huge selection of doors and drawers, you’re sure to find colors to match your current cabinet boxes and fresh styles to upgrade your kitchen so it looks like new! If you need new hinges, we’ll install them too. New door handles and drawer pulls are the final touch on the transformation. Redooring is quick and easy.

Don’t confuse redooring with another popular kitchen cabinet upgrade, refacing. In refacing, we attach new veneers to the cabinet boxes, changing their look. Then we add matching doors and drawer fronts. With redooring, the boxes stay as they are. Your terrific new doors and drawers do the work of taking your kitchen cabinets from blah to beautiful.

Cabinet Redooring Before & After

Is Redooring Right for My Kitchen?

With lots of options for upgrading kitchen cabinets, how do you know if redooring is the best one for your kitchen? You could choose refacing, or a full remodel with new cabinets, or painting your existing cabinets. Why pick redooring instead?

  • You like the current color or finish of your cabinets.
  • You’re tired of the style of your existing doors and drawer fronts.
  • The cabinet boxes are sturdy and in good shape.
  • You’re happy with the layout of your kitchen and don’t need to change cabinets’ locations.
  • The budget is limited. Redooring saves you up to 75 percent of the cost of replacing current cabinets with new ones.
  • Your time is limited. Redooring takes only one to two days once the Kitchen Tune-Up team is in your home. You can change the whole appearance of your kitchen in time for a holiday gathering or dinner party.
  • You don’t want the mess and hassle of installing new cabinets. With redooring, you can use your kitchen normally through the entire process. That’s not always an option with a full remodeling job!
  • You like eco-friendly options. By keeping your cabinet boxes on your walls, you’re keeping them out of landfills. Redooring reduces waste.

Find Your Perfect Doors

Choosing just the right doors for your existing boxes is easy! Kitchen Tune-Up has over 30 years of experience working with cabinet companies. Those connections give us almost unlimited choices of door styles, sizes, woods, and colors. Oak, maple, cherry? We’ve got them, and more. Classics like white, or today’s trendy colors like sage or gray? They’re here too. Popular, versatile Shaker style doors, or raised panel doors with a timeless traditional look, or modern slab-style doors–you’re bound to find a style that works with your cabinet frames.

Our Door Catalog, a unique resource just for Kitchen Tune-Up customers, gives you a taste of what we can do. We’ll work with you to match your cabinet boxes even if you don’t see your exact match in our catalog. And you don’t have to guess at the outcome. You can use our online Design Tool to visualize just how your cabinets will look when we’re done.

Cabinet Redooring Before & After

Can I Redoor my Cabinets by Myself?

You can pick doors from a DIY store or online and install them yourself–some homeowners do! But working with Kitchen Tune-Up has benefits. You get a larger selection of door styles and colors than most home improvement retailers can offer. Our experts install the doors and drawer fronts quickly and efficiently, and clean up before they leave.

If you’re a do-it-yourselfer, and want to change the color of your cabinets, we can provide color-matched paint so you can paint the frames yourself. Then we’ll add your chosen doors and drawer fronts on your painted boxes. This option works well if you like a white- or bisque-colored kitchen. Of course we’ll also add new door handles and drawer pulls to create a polished look.

Remember, if you want a bigger change, check out our refacing service. Refacing adds new veneers to the cabinet boxes to match new doors. Refacing takes a little longer than redooring–three to four days in most cases–but as always, Kitchen Tune-Up cleans up each day and leaves your kitchen usable.

If swapping your current cabinet doors for new ones sounds like the cost-effective change you want, contact your nearest Kitchen Tune-Up today.

Is Cabinet Painting Right for Your Kitchen Update?

Kitchen Tune-Up makes homeowners’ dreams of beautiful, convenient kitchens come true. Sometimes all a kitchen needs is a fresh, clean look to seem transformed. If you like your current cabinets but want to change the color, or want to cover wear and tear, painting might be right for you. Here’s how cabinet painting works when you partner with Kitchen Tune-Up.


How Does Kitchen Tune-Up Paint My Cabinets? 

First, we remove all your cabinet doors and drawers and whisk them away. We take them off-site to save you mess. We clean away built-up grime and residue and fix minor dings or defects. Then we prime and paint them. Back at your house, we clean, prep and paint the cabinet boxes. We bring back your freshly painted doors and drawers and install them, adding new hinges if needed. As a finishing touch, we can add new handles and knobs for a polished, modern look. Your cabinets will look like new after this affordable, easy transformation. The whole process takes about a week.

Is Painting My Best Option?

Painting is just one of the expert services Kitchen Tune-Up offers. How do you know which service to choose? Ask yourself:

Are my cabinets in good condition? This is always question No. 1, no matter what type of kitchen cabinet service you choose! Sturdy frames are essential to any upgrade that uses the existing cabinet boxes, whether you plan to add new doors or paint the doors you already have. We can help you assess whether your cabinets are good candidates for painting.

Do I like the style and placement of my current cabinets? If you want to keep your kitchen’s familiar layout, you don’t necessarily need new cabinets. If your cabinets’ style is still appealing and you just want a change of color, painting is a good option.

What’s the material? The most common cabinet that homeowners want painted is oak. Be aware: The heavy wood grain of oak and some other types of wood can be challenging to cover completely. Are you OK with that? If not, consider other options like refacing or redooring your kitchen cabinets.

How long do I need this upgrade to last? Painting does a great job of perking up your whole kitchen’s appearance! But we’ll be frank. Kitchen cabinets are in constant, daily use, increasing the probability that paint will show nicks and scratches over time. A kitchen cabinet paint job is a solution that lasts about two to five years. If you need a cabinet upgrade that lasts longer and is tougher, investigate our other services like redooring, refacing, or–if you have wood cabinets–our Original Tune-Up to recondition discolored or grimy wood surfaces.

What is my goal for this cabinet upgrade? Maybe you’re already planning a bigger update to your kitchen but aren’t quite ready for the disruption or the cost. Painting is a good choice to tide you over if you want a quick, inexpensive improvement before you take on a full remodel or refacing.

Painting kitchen cabinets is also an inexpensive option if you plan to sell your house and want to make the kitchen more attractive for prospective buyers. You might not want to invest in remodeling dinged or outdated cabinets, so painting might be your best choice.

Before & After Cabinet Painting

Isn’t Painting a DIY Job?

Painting kitchen cabinets sounds like a simple project! Anyone can handle a brush, right? But we all know how do-it-yourself projects can gobble up more time and expense than we anticipated. When Kitchen Tune-Up paints your cabinets, you get these advantages:

  • You don’t have to figure out the right paint for the job or spend time and money shopping for paint and tools.
  • There’s minimal mess. We prime and paint your cabinet doors and drawers off-site. You won’t have any half-painted or wet doors sitting around your kitchen! We also clean up when we leave each day, so your kitchen is as usable as possible while the work’s going on.
  • The job is finished in about a week.
  • You get Kitchen Tune-Up expertise and troubleshooting. We do this all the time. We’ll be honest with you if painting isn’t right for your cabinets.

Before & After Cabinet Painting

How Will It Look? 

You don’t have to guess at how your painted cabinets will look. Use our virtual Design Tool to visualize your cabinets wearing their new color. Choose a virtual kitchen layout closest to the look of your own kitchen, then experiment with different colors on the cabinets with just a few clicks. You can try out other changes too. How would new flooring look? What about a new color on the walls as well as the cabinets? Would a kitchen island fit? Play with your kitchen’s look, without having to commit a dime!
