Realtor Kevin Lee and his family relocated to Millbrook a year ago from Stouffville, in search of a small town life.
Lee is a realtor and his wife is a mortgage broker, so real estate drives their professional income. In anticipation of a potential softening of the market, Lee began to explore business opportunities that might be a little less cyclical. He understands the importance of the kitchen in real estate values, and his renovation experience gave him the confidence to start a new business helping homeowners get the feel of a new kitchen without the hefty price tag of new cabinets.
Cabinets Refresh can refinish your current cabinet doors with a fresh new look, applying the paint colour of your choice topped with a durable protective coating. Door refinishing occurs off-site, and a complete kitchen cabinet refinish takes less than a week to complete.
If your cabinet doors need replacing, Lee has a number of door suppliers who can deliver any style of door from MDF to wood veneer. Take home a sample to see if your idea works in your space.
The business recently qualified as a Home Depot Local Pro after an extensive screening process. This referral program has generated some contracts already, but most of Cabinet Refresh customers have come through word of mouth.
If you’re not sure what style or colour to choose, Lee is happy to offer suggestions. His experience as a realtor has shown him many kitchen styles and the reactions of many potential buyers. The simple, square Shaker style of cabinet doors is currently very popular, and a soft white- Benjamin Moore’s Chantilly Lace- continues to find favour in kitchen remodels. Modern handles are preferred to knobs these days on cabinets, and he has a variety of sources to find the perfect hardware to finish the job.
