step 1 - visit our showroom

The first step in the process is to visit us at our showroom! You can contact us ahead of time, or you can stop by on Monday – Friday from 9am – 5pm! Visiting us in person allows you to get to know our team, get some cabinet inspiration, and learn more about how we can help you with your cabinet refacing project.

Visit our Kitchener Showroom at 45 Franklin St S!

During this first step of the process, you can ask us any questions you may have about the options available to you, the expected timeline of your kitchen cabinet refacing project, the scope of the renovation, and much more.


You’ll also get the opportunity to learn about everything that Cerwood offers our valued customers – such as the manufacturer warranties that came standard with all our cabinetry, as well as our 1-year in-home warranty and 25-year warranty on hinges and drawer slides!

step 2 - share your vision

After you’ve visited with us and learned more about our business, if you would like to move forward with your own kitchen cabinet refacing project, it’s now time to share your vision with us!


What designs do you like, and what do you want to avoid? Do you have any inspiration pictures that you can show us? Are there any colours or textures you prefer? Do you want to make a certain part of your kitchen ‘pop?’


This is also a good time to let us know about anything extra you want to include in your kitchen renovation project. For example, you may want to install a new kitchen island to match your new cabinetry.

Tell us your vision, and we'll help bring it to life!

Even if you aren’t sure if your dreams and ideas are possible, it’s a good idea to share exactly what you want with us! If something can’t be done, or would be outside of your budget, we can discuss alternatives that will make you equally happy and satisfied with your updated cabinetry.

step 3 - work with our design team

The next step is quite simple – after you communicate your vision to us, we’ll do all the hard work planning your cabinet refacing project. Our professional designers will provide FREE estimates to ensure that your project is within budget before we get started.

Our professional designers will give you a free estimate!

During the process, you’ll receive the support you need from our design team. You will work closely with our team during step 4 as well – as you choose your materials!


We also provide plans for our customers, including a design package complete with a quote and 3-D drawings of the proposed finished look.

step 4 - choose your materials

Any kind of kitchen renovation can feel a bit overwhelming – there are just so many different choices and options available! The same is true when it comes to your kitchen cabinets. With so many different materials to pick from, how do you know which is best for you?


At Cerwood, we manufacture our own products in a local facility!

When you work with Cerwood, you can rest assured that we will help you select the right materials for your wants, needs, and budget.

  • – Custom stain & paint options
  • – Decorative & functional hardware to set your design apart from the rest

step 5 - cabinet installation

Our professional team provides high-quality installation

Once you’ve met with us, received your estimates, and planned with our professional design team…there’s one thing left to do – install your cabinets! 


At Cerwood, we have our own team of professional installers. We do not subcontract the work out to anyone else. 


Our installers are completely familiar with all of our products, which helps ensure not only a professional installation, but also a quicker installation than you might otherwise get.

“We are loving the kitchen, and how friendly the crew are when they have come to install!”

– Ashley R, A Happy Cerwood Customer!

With over 25 years of experience, our entire team has acquired the knowledge and expertise required to manufacture, design, and install the finest custom cabinetry for kitchens (and the rest of your home). 

step 6 - enjoy your new kitchen!

Refacing your kitchen cabinets can completely transform the look of your kitchen. Even if the entire project is just cabinetry refacing without any extras, your kitchen will have a fresh new look and feel to it. 

A kitchen renovation can help you enjoy your space so much more!

An updated kitchen can make you want to spend more time in the ‘heart of the home!’ Your kitchen should feel comfortable and inviting – and with new cabinetry, you can easily turn a dark and dingy space into a bright and cozy place for the entire family to enjoy! 


With new kitchen cabinets, you may even enjoy cooking more. Many homeowners are more likely to cook and spend time in their kitchen when it is attractive and convenient. You can consider added additions like built-in spice racks or sliding shelves to help increase convenience – making your space ideal for cooking and hosting!

Simple additions like this can make your kitchen much more practical!

If you aren’t sure what you need in your kitchen to make it a more practical or accessible space for your unique wants and needs, contact us today at Cerwood to learn to start the process!
