FaceYourKitchen.com, a website dedicated to kitchen remodeling and cabinet refacing, offers unconventional gift ideas that many homeowners would prefer over luxury items. In a new article released today, “This holiday season she wants cabinet refacing instead of diamonds”, FaceYourKitchen.com lists common holiday gifts, and suggests similarly priced kitchen upgrade alternatives. According to a Kilz Paint Company survey, women would choose a $5,000 room makeover over diamond earrings of the same value.
Research from a Professional Builder survey also indicated that 75 percent of respondents consider the kitchen the most popular renovation. When it comes to cost, gifts of custom home improvements at about the same cost as designer clothes or tech gadgets will likely be cherished for years. Instead of giving a flat screen TV this year, FaceYourKitchen.com suggests laminating kitchen cabinet refacing. Or perhaps, skip the weekend getaway and instead, snag a high-end Energy Star refrigerator for about the same cost.
“Choosing the perfect gift for someone isn’t always easy,” said Patricia Davis Brown, award-winning designer and FaceYourKitchen.com contributor. “For those who want to give a gift with lasting value that their loved one will be able to appreciate every single day, FaceYourKitchen.com has some great redesign suggestions for kitchen design and renovation in every price range.”
For practical gift givers, kitchen upgrades are a great choice. Remodeling Magazine's Cost vs. Value Report for 2011 found that a minor kitchen remodel, complete with cabinet refacing and new appliances, can return an average of 72.8 percent of investment when the time comes to sell.
“Home redesigns go a long way when you consider your return on investment,” said Brown. “A kitchen that looks brand new is something that can be enjoyed every day by every member of a family.”
