Kitchen Remodeling

Dramatically transform your kitchen without replacing it.

Here at Ragsdale, we are proponents for restoring and enhancing your existing kitchen rather than replacing it. This route offers both cost and time savings, while also keeping perfectly good materials out of landfills.

While not the right approach for every kitchen, you might be surprised by what an amazing transformation is possible without a full gut.

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.



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

  • Grain Filling
  • Painting
  • Glazing
  • Color Shifting
  • Addition of Moldings or Paneling
  • Door & Drawer Fronts Replacements
  • Adding or Modifying Cabinets
  • Under or Interior Cabinet Lighting Installation
  • Hardware Updates
  • Hinge & Drawer Glide Replacements
  • Countertop Replacements
  • New Backsplash Design & Installation
  • Appliance Upgrades

We believe that a success of a project comes with 90% preparation and 10% application. Our craftsmen have the experience to deliver the highest-quality finishes and their preparation for each project is a guarantee to our clients. 

“Guests to our home can’t believe the 16 year old kitchen cabinets we had repainted aren’t brand new. The Ragsdale crew was tidy and organized, the prep work was meticulous, and clean-up was thorough.

I look forward to working with Steve and Grace in the future.”
