Dee, I’ve had great results with having them sprayed with a white oil based enamel and installing brass hinges and knobs. My handyman will also relaminate the counters (right over the old stuff) and drop in a new sink.
Quick, CHEAP and the results are excellent!!

PS: New doors and drawer fronts are another option. Not as inexpensive but still better than new cabinets.

Has anyone recently put in new cabinets? Are there any Internet wholesale cabinet sites where I can check on prices? I would like to have installed the white laminate with the oak trim. I live in the midwest. Any advice on how much I should allow for cabinetry in a kitchen area approx 12 X 15.

Thanks for the replies. Please excuse, I did not previously state there are no cabinets. The kitchen cabinets were never installed. I am seeking “wholesale” approx cost info. Anyone with wholesale cost experience?

Hello Dee,
My husband and I have a Construction Company. He is a master cabinet builder but when we buy to rehab or money is tight we do as lyal suggests. Paint with new door hinges and knobs make a HUGH difference without killing your pocket. If your going to do it yourself…putting new doors on are a little more tricky and expensive.
You can go to Home Depot or Lowe’s and they will give you an estimate what NEW cabinets will cost you.
Great success,
