This clients home is in Port Orange in a golf course community. All the homes in the neighborhood were built around the same time and all have thermofoil cabinets. I love doing thermofoil cabinets, because they are the perfect example of what I can do with my refinishing process. Over time thermofoil starts to lift and peel away from the surface underneath. In Florida, the high humidity and heat environment exacerbate this problem. The client didn’t want to spend a fortune completely replacing her cabinets and came to The Cabinet Queen for help. With my process, I could give the client a completely new look without the cost of new cabinets.
The original thermofoil was a medium brown wood-like finish paired with black and stainless appliances with brown and black countertops. The client wanted to also replace the backsplash that was original to the home. To contrast the dark colors of the kitchen, I suggested bright white cabinets.
Most of the time I just refinish the cabinets but this client also requested the table to be painted to match the updated cabinets. The table was an oak table that matched the original thermofoil cabinets but would not match the new white cabinets. The tabletop was painted with black chalk paint to enhance her black-and-white kitchen. Painting the table as well as the cabinets really brought the room together and made it look brand new. The client also provided new hardware for the cabinets. The hardware was some of the best I have seen and really tied in well with the black-and-white style. They were handles with a black ceramic centerpiece surrounded by a thin braid of brushed-nickel. In just over a week this client had a brand-new look that she loved. Using the proven process from The Cabinet Queen I can make thermofoil cabinets look brand new! Do you have old thermofoil cabinets? Don’t throw them away, call The Cabinet Queen at (386) 500-8558.
