Got Golden Oak?
Golden Oak cabinets – you either love or you hate. Made popular in the 1980s and 90s, Golden Oak cabinets are very common but started falling out of favor in the 2000s. Tens of thousands of homeowners in the Omaha area have Golden Oak throughout their homes. Royal Construction encounters homes with Golden Oak every week in the Omaha metro area.
Here’s the great thing about Golden Oak Cabinets – they are solid wood (not the interiors necessarily, but the doors at least). In particular, oak cabinets from the 1980s and 90s are great because unlike today’s wood cabinets that are often purchased from Home Depot, Lowes and Menards, they stand the test of time and only after 30 years of wear and tear do they need some love.
Can’t Stand Golden Oak?
You’re not alone if you’re not still madly in love with Golden Oak. What do you do when your love for Golden Oak has faded? Royal Construction offers several different solutions and they work closely with their clients to find the perfect solution for each individual homeowner.
The homeowner loves the placement of the cabinets and how they were originally configured but the Golden Oak has to go! Royal Construction will show you different refinishing options: painting and staining. It’s most common for homeowners to upgrade and replace the cabinet doors, hinges and hardware. You might be surprised how easily your home is transformed with new hardware, doors and a fresh coat of painted cabinetry and woodwork throughout your home.
Royal Construction loves these types of projects as they show that remodels don’t always have to be tearing everything out and starting over. Sometimes it’s about modifying what you have to better suit your needs or tastes with a modern look.
It is amazing what changing the color of cabinets can do to a home. Homeowners have unlimited upgrade options, too! Amanda Trout, co-owner of Royal Construction, says it’s not uncommon for homeowners to upgrade to:
- Rollout trays.
- Slow closing hinges.
- Under the cabinet lights.
- New hardware
Refinishing cabinets may not be the perfect solution for each homeowner. When appropriate we will design a cabinet system perfectly suited to meet your individual needs.
