Kitchen Restoration

Most kitchens can be dramatically transformed without being replaced. Here at Ragsdale we are big proponents for restoring and enhancing your existing kitchen rather than replacing it. In most cases, this route offers a cost-savings as well as keeping perfectly good materials out of the landfill. And it takes a fraction of the time of a gut remodel!

By filling the grain on that outdated golden gold… painting and/or glazing… color shifting… adding moldings and/or paneling… replacing door and drawer fronts… adding or modifying cabinets… installing under or interior cabinet lighting… changing hardware… replacing hinges and/or updating drawer glides… replacing countertops… installing a new backsplash… upgrading appliances…

We can help you create a major transformation, without the major investment. Our turnkey operation covers all of the above, and more, including design services.

Our process is non-invasive. Most work is completed in our shop, not in your home, and the typical project can be completed within 2-4 weeks from start to finish, depending on total scope. Almost all of the finishing products we use are environmentally-friendly, non-toxic and low odor, without losing the durability of traditional oil based or baked-on finishes.

Our downtown Lake Bluff showroom is a great place to get a feel for what’s possible. We have before and after displays of cabinetry, door and drawer replacement options, and numerous finish, countertop, tile and hardware samples.
