What Is Kitchen Cabinet Refacing?

Instead of replacing your entire kitchen cabinets, doors, drawers, and boxes, kitchen cabinet refacing keeps your existing cabinet boxes and just replaces your old door and drawer fronts with new ones. The following video will give you a better idea of what is involved with kitchen cabinet refacing.

With refacing, you keep your old cabinet boxes and replace your old door and drawer fronts

Your existing cabinet boxes are covered with a veneer that matches your new doors and drawers. You can also replace your cabinet side panels, face frames, and moldings to cover up any blemishes or finish problems on your cabinets so that everything matches.

In addition, you can also choose to replace your old hardware with modern, updated hardware and crown molding.

Benefits of Kitchen Cabinet Refacing

Kitchen cabinet refacing is the perfect way to take a dated kitchen and transform it on a budget. There are many great advantages to kitchen cabinet refacing including:

It Will Save You Money

The biggest advantage of kitchen cabinet refacing over a total cabinet replacement is the money you will save. As long as you are happy with the current layout of your kitchen and your boxes are in good shape, refacing can save you hundreds of dollars.

According to HomeAdvisor.com, kitchen cabinet refacing usually is between 30% to 50% cheaper than replacing your cabinets.

It Can Improve Your Property Value

Renovating your kitchen is one of the best ways to improve the value of your home. Homes that have updated kitchens and bathrooms usually sell faster than ones that look dated.

It makes a difference even to just have your cabinets remodeled. You can expect to get back anywhere from 65% to 75% of your investment when you sell your home.

You Will Love Your Space Again

Refacing your kitchen cabinets is a cheap way to love your kitchen again. If you have been less than inspired by the current look of your kitchen, then refacing could give you that motivation to spend more time trying out new healthy recipes or making special memories, like teaching your children how to bake!

You may even love the look so much that you will want to reface your bathroom cabinets next.

It Is More Environmentally Friendly

Instead of tearing out your entire kitchen cabinetry, refacing means that you are keeping a good portion of the existing cabinets and simply replacing the fronts. This is a much more environmentally friendly option.

What about Painting My Kitchen Cabinets?

Painting your kitchen cabinets costs a lot less, about one third of the cost. However, kitchen cabinet refacing gives you a much more permanent solution that looks closer to completely installing a new kitchen.

Painting also doesn’t allow you to change the styling of your doors and drawers, only the colour. And if there is any damage to the front of your doors, then painting them may not fix the look of that.

DIY vs. Hiring a Professional

Unless you are a skilled handy-person, it’s probably best to hire a professional to reface your kitchen cabinets. A professional will be able to accurately measure your kitchen cabinets and inspect them to provide you with a good estimate of what it will cost you.

They can also offer you advice on any optional upgrades, and what they will cost, as well as your best hardware choices. In addition, they can expertly install your new door fronts and doors for you. If you are looking to improve the value of your home, you are probably better to have a professional do it for you.
