Modifications such as replacing drawers & glides, adding pull out shelves, tip out sink trays, drawer and shelf lining, a built-in microwave oven, custom moldings, or other options can easily be done to your existing kitchen or bathroom cabinets. When completed at the same time as cabinet refacing, these options are very cost-effective. You do not need to buy expensive new cabinets to have any of these features. Cabinets make a visual statement to any room in your home.
