“This is suitable for all kitchens. The process can be done for all types of cabinets and it really comes down to two things: Are the cabinet bones good and are they structurally sound? If not, a facelift won’t fix it. Second, how much is the footprint changing? There are a lot of things we can add or remove, but at some point it just makes sense to use new structures. “

Murray says 70 to 80 percent of kitchens never changed their footprint.

“I just made a kitchen that was 40 years old and had good bones – solid wood – and we moved the doors a little closer together, gave it a Eurostyle with new hinges and the transformation was incredible in such a short time,” he said says.

Murray says the remodeling is on the rise as homeowners find they create a completely new look at half the price of replacing the cabinet boxes, doors and fronts. Murray says there are more than 40 colors in matte, glossy, and wood grain finishes and around 20 different types of doors. What customers accept as well as new fronts is the option for tailor-made work.

“Pull-out drawers are huge,” he says. “Everyone wants that kind of space and drawers in closets. The homeowner really has a wide choice and can create that dream kitchen at a fraction of the price. We can add or remove cabinets, install pot and pan drawers, extend cabinet drawers to the ceiling, add crown moldings, soft-close hinges and brand new handles. “
