Can you buy kitchen cabinet doors -- just the doors and drawer fronts -- by themselves? A house we're looking at has ugly kitchen cabinets and while I would probably paint them there's still an ugly design carved into the wood, so I'm wondering about just replacing the doors.

Yes.  You can get your cabinets refaced from a variety of companies.  It all depends on what you're willing to pay.  I know a couple who got their cabinets refaced through Home Depot, and the cabinets look really nice.

I've never seen that as an option at Lowe's or Home Depot.. Maybe I just missed it cause I bought all new cabnits when I redid my kitchen several years ago..

Maybe a cabinet shop could make some new doors but that may cost just as much as just buying whole new cabinets.. :-\

Yep Lowes also does it, I redid the fronts of all my drawers and cabinets that way (also replaced the MDF of the drawers with real wood).

You just need to talk to the kitchen dept at either store and ask for the special order catalog. :)

Thanks. We haven't even put a bid in on the house yet but we're thinking about buying it. The house was renovated by a flipper who basically went to Home Depot and bought a big box marked CHEAP HOME RENOVATIONS so there's a lot of character that's been replaced with a lot of bland shit. This is a picture of the kitchen, and the cabinets in question:



In looking at them again I think I think I would try painting them first, and if I feel like I really can't live with it I might look into getting the cabinet doors redone.

Huh.

I just heard a local radio commercial that mispronounced "Valet." I'm not sure if they did it on purpose or if they're idiots. Probably both, since they also used words like "veggivore."

Wow, that's one ugly wall behind the cabinets, that doesn't help.

But yeah, the cabinets would probably look a lot better if they were darker, especially since the appliances and counter top are dark.

My mom was right about shaving, the more you shave the faster it grows.

Just thought of that, radomly

Yeah, the wall and the counter are two things that would definitely go, too. Here's a partial view of what my ideal kitchen would look like:



So you see that the way the kitchen is currently is not my ideal. I agree with you about the black appliances and would rather have white.

In that case painting that wall and maybe the cabinets white would go a long way towards making what's there look more to your liking.  If painting the cabinets you could take those door pulls off, plug the holes, and put nicer ones on.  Then replace the counter top and maybe the sink later.

I get burned out on certain foods very easily. :( Just last week I got another Pecan pie and I didn't care for it. Sigh.

Well, they needed a way to get the Ice King back after her. And even he pointed out that he couldn't do it when she was young.

That's why I don't shave my beard. ;D

Wait, you weren't talking about beards, were you?  :speechless:

Still, I'd like to see a show with balls enough to change permanently for once. I was looking forward to she and Fin going out.
