Especially here in Naples where builders once offered only white melamine cabinets and white laminate countertops; they are now offering granite and wood-look cabinets as a standard. This means all the homes and condos that are just a few years old are having a tough time competing with all the incentives builders are offering to unload their inventories.
So what is a homeowner to do? When budgets are limited it is always a good idea to incoporate storage aids such as lazy-susan corner cabinets and pull-out trash bins. Bathrooms can also be improved by adding linen cabinets. According to a recent survey they are the number one requested item and are sure to help improve the value of your remodel.
I always suggest my clients look at a 5-piece glazed thermofoil door. It’s similar to what the builders offer but it looks like a glaze has been applied. The glazing makes these cabinets look more expensive than they really are – a great selling bonus.
