Kitchen Cabinet Replacement for $5,000 in Edmonton
Corrine was in the process of modernizing their kitchen. Part of this process included swapping out their twenty-year-old oak cabinets with brand new cabinets. They connected with Reface Magic on recommendation from a friend and hired them to complete the job.
Reface Magic helped Corrine choose a cabinet style and colours that would fit within their budget. Together they decided on a white colour for the upper cabinets and a stone grey for the bottom cabinets. In the process of choosing a cabinet style, it was decided that they would transform the bottom cabinets into pot drawers. This would provide more usable storage space for pots and pans.
As you can see from the photos, the kitchen looks very modern and the mixture of grey and white cabinets was a perfect combination for Corrine’s kitchen. Refacing or replacing your kitchen cabinets is a great way to upgrade the space on a budget. Since cabinets take up a lot of the room they can have a big impact on the overall look of the space.

Kitchen Countertop Replacement for $1,000 in Edmonton
Warren’s home was built in 1950 and still had the original kitchen fixtures. This included built-in cabinets with drawers and a sink attached. Unfortunately, the countertop was beginning to show signs of wear and tear and the laminate glue was beginning to peel off. Warren decided that it was time to replace it. Warren hired Pf Custom Countertops to get the job done.
Since the unit was custom built on-site, they weren’t able to remove the countertop without destroying the entire unit, which isn’t something that Warren was interested in. Instead of declining the work, Pf Custom Countertops worked with Warren to come up with a solution. They decided that they could manufacture a countertop that would fit right on top of the existing one, hiding the original countertop.
The new countertop was measured and cut to perfection. It covered the existing countertop perfectly, and even accounted for the drawers, allowing them to still function properly. As to not damage any plumbing, the company also disconnected and reconnected the sink for Warren, and at no extra cost. With a brand new countertop, Warren doesn’t have to worry about the old countertop deteriorating or having to knock out the entire unit. Plus, a new countertop is a small upgrade that can make a huge difference in a small space.
Small kitchen upgrades can go a long way. Updating your cabinets and countertops can transform the space completely, and can be done on a budget. If you’re looking to update your kitchen, get connected with a pro to talk about your next project today.
