Your ultimate kitchen makeover from 180 Kitchens is waiting for you! (Spoiler alert: it’s easier, less expensive, and more beautiful than you ever imagined.)
Who wants a gorgeous new kitchen makeover? You do! Who wants a hefty price tag and the stress of managing several trades? That’s definitely not you. Serving the BC Lower Mainland and Edmonton, AB, 180 Kitchens is a premier kitchen cabinet refacing company that can make your dreams come true stress-free and in half the time as a full kitchen remodel. Sound great? We thought so.
“You might feel stuck in your current layout,” says Brittany Schroeder, business development and operations manager for 180 Kitchens. “We can work with your existing layout and cabinet boxes to create that modern kitchen renovation feel without the full remodel price tag.”
The Hybrid Kitchen
One of 180 Kitchens’ most popular offerings is the hybrid kitchen, which combines old and new components and can refer to the physical, including cabinetry, appliances and furniture and the aesthetic, which means layout, accessories and design.
In the hybrid kitchen project pictured, the team installed a large new island, extended the cabinets to the ceiling, added crown moulding, backsplash, a new pantry and floating shelves.
“We also converted the base cabinets to drawers, which improves functionality and is more ergonomic because you can see everything in your cabinet without reaching into the back,” says Amanda Ness, design consultant with 180 Kitchens. “The jumbo island with a seating overhang is a functional seating area that creates a more family feel in what was an awkward space. This provides more space to prepare family meals, while allowing the cook to engage with their guests.”
Ness points to simple tricks like concealing cabinet door hinges or installing larger doors to save time and cost while modernizing the look and feel of a space.
“Old school kitchen cabinet doors have the hinges on the outside; we add new, soft-closing, concealed hardware, creating a more modern aesthetic,” she says. “New doors, hardware and drawer fronts completely update the kitchen.”
Many homeowners think their kitchen update options are limited to either painting existing doors or undergoing a full renovation. Cabinet refacing is a third option that more people should know about.
“We assess each kitchen individually and can rebuild certain components when it’s part of a larger remodelling project,” Ness says. “Your new kitchen will truly be custom-made for you.”
As if new cabinet doors and drawers weren’t gorgeous enough, 180 Kitchens also provides full-service add-ons—how about a coffee bar, a sleek quartz countertop, a beautiful matching backsplash or open shelving? 180 Kitchens can do it all.
“We are a one-stop shop for many trades,” Schroeder says. “We hire and coordinate your plumber, electrician, tiler, countertop installer and more.”
