Upgrade Your Kitchen with Cabinet Refacing

Whether you want to give your kitchen a new style or simply want to freshen up the space, cabinet refacing is an easy way to change the look of your kitchen without the mess and expenses of a complete remodel. 

Oftentimes, kitchen cabinets are destroyed or removed not because of their structural condition but because they look outdated or don’t match the homeowner’s style. 

Completely replacing your kitchen cabinets can be incredibly expensive, as new cabinet boxes, frames, doors, and knobs need to be bought.

Fortunately, you can drastically change the look of your kitchen with a process called refacing, which provides most of the benefits of a complete replacement for only a fraction of the cost. 

What Is Kitchen Cabinet Refacing?

Cabinet Refacing allows you to keep the layout of your existing kitchen while giving its surface a complete makeover. 

This process essentially involves changing the cabinet doors and drawer fronts by either changing their colour using wood stains or switching them out for differently-styled doors. 

Cabinet frames are reinforced with durable plywood and covered with a laminate or wood veneer. The cabinet boxes remain intact and can be stained or painted to match the colour of the new doors and drawer fronts.

The final part of the transformation involves installing new hinges, knobs, and moulding. Kitchen cabinet refacing typically costs one-third what new cabinets would. Keeping your original countertops will allow you to further increase your savings as well. 

Ways Refacing Cabinets Can Improve Your Kitchen

The first two options that come to mind when looking to change up your kitchen cabinets are painting the surfaces or ripping them out completely. 

However, painting your cabinets will not change the design of the doors or drawer fronts, and completely replacing them is incredibly costly. Cabinet refacing offers the best of both worlds with endless design possibilities and without the big price tag of a full remodelling.

Part of the refacing process includes switching out old hinges and worn-out glides for new interior hardware. This will provide better functionality as drawers will no longer get stuck and doors will be able to softly close. Another aspect of refacing is changing out your cabinet handles, perhaps going with a design that matches your new kitchen style.

The kitchen is the heart of the home, which is why it’s important to keep it updated. Refacing your cabinets will maximize the effort, time, and money you put into the project while providing a dramatically improved look and better ROI should you decide to sell your home.
