Do You Need to Remove Cabinetry?
If you have an outdated kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room, you may think you need to remove all of the cabinets to start fresh and get the look you want. But removing cabinetry and starting over is expensive.
The reality is that most people’s cabinets are pretty solid, and they can be reused. With a little paint, stain, or refacing of cabinet doors and drawer fronts, you can get a whole new look for a fraction of the cost. You can then install new countertops, making your entire kitchen appear fully updated and beautiful. This saves you time, money, and hassle, plus most people won’t even know that your cabinets aren’t brand new. They will look brand new, and that’s what matters.
Updating the look of a kitchen or bathroom is easier than you might think. Call Granite Transformations to learn more about how we update the messiest rooms in your house for a small portion of the cost of renovating an entire space.
How to Select Countertops and Backsplashes
Some homeowners feel overwhelmed when it comes to selecting counters, materials, or tile for a backsplash. Because these products aren’t cheap, people fear they will make a poor decision that they can’t take back and have to live with for many years. That’s why Granite Transformations helps our customers throughout the entire process. Here’s how we can help you during the design process:
We help you define your style and the look you want to achieve. We can look at inspiration photos and ideas so you can figure out what you like and match it to materials that fall within your budget.
We help you understand the pros and cons of different materials and show you what they look like in person. We can show you samples of products so you can get a real sense of what your new countertops and backsplash will look like.
If you choose to update the look of your cabinets as well, we can show you different cabinet refacing options.
Choosing a backsplash to match or contrast with your countertops is not easy for some people, but we can assist you in finding the right fit. We won’t let you choose products that will likely not work well together. You can feel confident with the products you’ve selected.

The kitchen is the centerpiece of your home, and you want it to be an inviting space to prepare meals for your family. The cabinets and countertops in your kitchen do most of the heavy lifting. You want them to be functional, but look good too. Sometimes, cabinets and countertops can be damaged over time or simply become outdated, but not every kitchen needs a complete overhaul.
It’s possible to update your kitchen using cost-effective measures, such as kitchen cabinet refacing. The cabinets in your kitchen may not be in bad shape, but they simply need to be refinished or the kitchen cabinet doors need to be replaced. Cabinet refinishing or refacing cabinet doors can make an enormous difference to your kitchen’s functionality and aesthetics.
If you are looking for a kitchen update on a budget, talk to the professionals at Granite Transformations. We can examine your kitchen cabinets and give you a free estimate.
What Is Cabinet Refacing?
Cabinets are built-ins that are installed in kitchens and bathrooms in most homes. These cabinets come with doors and drawer fronts, and some of the doors and fronts have designs on them. They can come in different sizes, styles, and colors. Some cabinets are simple while others are more ornate.
Cabinet refacing involves removing the doors and drawer fronts of your cabinets and replacing them with new doors and drawer fronts. You can choose cabinet faces with different styles, designs, and colors. You don’t have to remove the entire cabinet. By replacing the doors and fronts, you can get an entirely new look to your kitchen.
Why Not Replace the Entire Cabinet System?
A lot of times, the cabinetry itself is in good condition, but the doors may be damaged, scratched, worn, or outdated. The doors are the parts of the cabinetry that take the most abuse. Refacing your kitchen cabinets can make the entire cabinet system feel like new but at a fraction of the cost of replacing an entire cabinet system.
Benefits of refacing cabinets:
Cost-effective way to change up the look of your kitchen or bathroom.
Easy way to get a custom designed look. You get to choose the design and colors.
Cabinet refacing means your update can happen a lot faster than an entire renovation.
You don’t have to deal with the stress and mess that comes with renovation.
Once the cabinet doors have been replaced, we can refinish your cabinets with a stain you like.
For instance, if your cabinets are a light stain, we can change the look by giving them a darker stain. We can also paint your cabinets any color you like to completely change the look of your cabinets and your kitchen. Many homeowners are painting their cabinets white or gray.
There is no right or wrong style. You can select what works for your home and your unique design goals. With cabinet refacing, you can get a customized look that matches your design aesthetic. For inspiration, check out our products page. We can also meet with you in person to discuss design options and show you samples of cabinet refacing products.

If you’ve been eyeing marble surfaces for your next home renovation project, you’ve likely already stumbled across the cons of using marble for kitchen and bathroom countertops.

Concrete surfaces are one of the hottest new trends in interior design. Their rise in popularity can be attributed to their handcrafted beauty and versatility—they’ve come a long way from their industrial roots and can now be found in a wide variety of design styles. Whether your home’s style is modern or farmhouse, concrete countertops seem to be a rock-solid choice.
However, they do present some concerns that make us wonder if authentic concrete countertops are all they’re cracked up to be.
Authentic Concrete Surfaces: Why They’re Not All They’re Cracked Up to Be
Though we love the look of authentic concrete surfaces, they’re not the most ideal countertop material for bathrooms and kitchens. If concrete does one thing, it’s crack. Even when installed, sealed, and maintained perfectly, it’s impossible to have a concrete countertop without at least hairline cracks. They’re also susceptible to larger fractures due to pressure or natural home settlement—these cracks are almost impossible to repair and often require replacing the entire portion of the slab.
Here are a few other concerns that come with concrete surfaces:
Concrete is porous in nature, and without proper sealant, can absorb liquids that lead to bacteria growth, cracks, and stains. Thus, you’ll have to seal natural concrete surfaces at least once a year.
Concrete countertops are extremely heavy and weigh in at around 20-25 pounds per square foot. This often requires reinforcing cabinetry and flooring so they’re capable of bearing the load.
Despite its common use, concrete is actually one of the more expensive countertop options. It’s considered a high-end material when used as countertops and their fabrication requires skill.
Get the Look of Concrete Countertops With the Benefits of etherium® by E-stone
At Granite Transformations, we offer a line of surfaces that mimic the look of concrete countertops yet boast the benefits of etherium® by E-stone. You’ll enjoy the aesthetic of concrete without the cracks, stains, weight, and expense.
etherium® by E-stone Concrete Countertops Benefits
Sealed with our proprietary polymer resin, ForeverSeal®, all surfaces are heat, stain, scratch, mold, and mildew resistant.
Our unique sealing agent ensures your concrete countertop surface is nonporous and will never need to be sealed, saving you both time and money.
Each slab is handcrafted in our very own manufacturing facility, so the strength and durability of your countertop surface are guaranteed with a Lifetime Limited Warranty.
Made of quartz and 78% post-consumer recycled glass, etherium® by E-stone concrete countertops are an eco-friendly option for your kitchen or bathroom renovation.

Transforming your seldom-used or outdated tub into a spacious, luxurious walk-in shower can give your bathroom a fast and practical upgrade. Granite Transformations of Kansas City specializes in bathroom renovations, including shower remodeling and tub to shower conversions.
Why a Tub to Shower Conversion?
Choosing to convert your tub into a shower can be rewarding, especially if you already have a functioning bathtub elsewhere in the home. Here are three ways a tub to shower conversion can add value to your home:
A tub to shower conversion can free up valuable space in small guest baths. Large tubs can mean less room for storage, getting dressed, and counter space.
For those who use mobility aids, showers make bathing more convenient. A zero-threshold shower can make entering and exiting easier for those who use wheelchairs, walkers, or other mobility aids by removing large walls and curbs that need to be stepped over.
Large tubs and busy shower curtains can take up space and make a room feel crowded. Showers, especially walk-ins with clear glass doors, make a bathroom of any size feel open and spacious.
Need Bathtub Remodeling?
Bathtubs can hold their weight in value, especially when it comes to the homes of families with young children and dogs. For this reason, real estate agents often advise homeowners against a tub to shower conversion when there is only one bathtub in the house. But what if your sole bathtub is large and outdated? Granite Transformations can help! A new tub surround can dramatically improve your bathroom. Call today for more information about how we can transform your tub!
Design Options for Tub to Shower Conversions
At Granite Transformations, we offer a wide range of countertops, cabinets, tiles, and slabs for your bathroom remodeling and tub to shower conversion projects. You won’t have to settle for boring fiberglass or acrylic shower stalls ever again.
The kitchen is often referred to as the heart of the home, so it’s natural to desire a welcoming space that reflects your personal style. A kitchen remodel not only adds value to your home, but it also creates a space that you and your family will enjoy for years to come.
We help homeowners carefully choose surfaces and materials from our large selection of countertops, cabinets, and tiles, helping them create the kitchen of their dreams. After selecting their products, we provide mess-free, stress-free, and fast installations that are completed in as little as one day!
