“I loved my granite countertops & stainless steel appliances, but the light maple cabinets were never a favorite. I had heard about cabinet refacing, but always thought it just involved staining your existing cabinets a new color. Boy was I wrong. I chose Better Than New whose approach was to install all new alder doors and drawer faces & to use a custom finished alder veneer applied to the existing face frame of my cabinets. New nickel hardware and a modern vent hood were also installed. Brand new alder & glass upper cabinets were added to give a more contemporary, seamless look.”

“Our old cabinets were looking really dated. After pricing new cabinets we decided to investigate refinishing. We received a recommendation for Better Than New and gave them a call. That was a good decision. They did a great job. Very professional. They showed up when they were supposed to and completed the work on schedule and within budget. They made some great suggestions that we incorporated in our design. The only way we could have been happier with the job is if they had done it for free.”

“When my dining room table was scratched, Ethan Allen recommended Better Than New to repair it. I was so impressed with the results which were “better than new”! Consequently, I hired them to remodel my kitchen cabinets. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. They are the consummate professionals. In addition to being highly skilled, they are friendly, polite and considerate. They are true artisans as well, and I found their design advice to be of great value. The finished product is just beautiful. I highly recommend them.”

“Upon buying our home the major criticism my wife had was that the cabinets throughout the house were too light for her tastes. She much preferred the richer tones of darker wood for the cabinets. In lieu of ripping out the old altogether, we were fortunate to find Better Than New. Now we feel like we have the kitchen she initially wanted with the refacing, and the richness she so well deserves!!”



“I’ve been working with Better Than New for over 7 years and they have always been very kind, professional and accommodating. The work they do for us has always been impeccable and amazing at times. They understand the level of clientele we work with and they make sure their work never disappoints.”

“Our medical office cabinets were over 30 years old and definitely needing updating throughout the office. We were trying to figure out if we should replace them and one of our co-worker’s suggested refacing them. I wasn’t sure how natural that would look but we decided to call our co-workers referral Better than New Kitchens who had used them for her kitchen remodel in her home to see what they had to offer.

The owner Daniel Oldejans came out within a week and seemed very organized bringing catalogs, door samples and offered great ideas for what we needed. He provided us with a quote within a couple days with a cost breakdown for each room and project timeline, which we emphasized, was important due to the medical office only being closed for a week.

They started on time as promised and very responsive to additional requests from us. The finished refaced cabinets turned out to look professional, warm and inviting not only for our patients but for our staff as well. We have received hundreds of compliments from those who had seen the prior cabinets and have referred them out to many of our patients.

It was a pleasure to have worked with them and recommend their services!”
