Renovation Reinvented: The Case for Cabinet Refacing

In the realm of home renovation, the kitchen often takes center stage. It's the heart of the home, where meals are prepared, stories are shared, and memories are made. Maybe the cabinets are showing signs of wear that detract from the overall ambiance of the space. Often the cabinets are in perfect working order, but the door style or color no longer fits a homeowner’s style or reflects their design preference.  Enter cabinet refacing – a transformative solution that breathes new life into kitchens without removing the existing cabinets or disrupting existing countertops, flooring, backsplash, or plumbing.  

Cabinet refacing is more than just a cosmetic fix; it's a strategic makeover that combines aesthetics with practicality. By replacing the existing doors and drawer fronts while preserving the current cabinet framework, homeowners can achieve a fresh, contemporary look while minimizing disruption. It's a process that marries style with efficiency, allowing you to revitalize your kitchen's appearance without sacrificing functionality.

Benefits of Cabinet Refacing

  • Fast and Clean – Installing replacement cabinet doors and drawer fronts usually takes only 1-5 days depending on the size of the space, allowing you to update your kitchen just in time for that imminent dinner party or holiday event.
  • Add More Cabinets – Through our Refacing Plus option, we offer the addition of extra cabinets, kitchen organizers, drawers, and islands, providing you with even more versatility for a refreshed appearance and optimized space. We can even modify cabinets to fit new or larger appliances.
  • Affordable – Seeking to revamp your home's appearance without the hassle of a complete kitchen overhaul? Cabinet refacing offers a great solution with minimal disturbance to your daily routine.

Cost Advantages of Cabinet Refacing

Cabinet refacing typically costs significantly less than completely replacing cabinets. Since the existing cabinet framework is retained, you save on materials, labor, and disposal fees associated with new cabinet installation.

It all depends on the doors you choose and which company you purchase them from. Preview our door catalog for sample of the options you can choose from.  As an established remodeling company with operations throughout the United States and Canda, we’re able to command favorable pricing from top cabinet manufacturers. And we pass these savings on to you!

If you want to give your home a brand-new look without a full kitchen remodel, this is an excellent alternative with little disruption to your day-to-day life. You’ll be amazed how just replacing the doors, drawer fronts, and veneer on your cabinets will really transform your kitchen.

Professional Refacing vs. DIY

For many homeowners, the allure of do-it-yourself home improvement projects lies in the promise of both personal satisfaction and cost savings compared to hiring professional contractors. While this holds true for straightforward tasks, cabinet refacing presents a unique challenge where errors can lead to unexpected expenses.

Opting for the DIY route may seem cost-effective initially, as it eliminates labor expenses. However, the investment in supplies and tools required for cabinet refacing can add up quickly, particularly if quality is compromised in favor of lower prices.

Professional cabinet refacing services, such as ours, offer a compelling alternative. With access to top-tier materials, streamlined processes, and skilled professionals, we can complete the job efficiently and quickly—a feat that may prove challenging for even the most adept DIYers.

While some homeowners may be determined to tackle cabinet refacing themselves, it's essential to recognize the absence of material warranty and support that come with professional services. By entrusting your project to skilled experts, you can enjoy an amazing experience by kitchen experts and the assurance of exceptional results.

Elevate Your Space: Making the Most of Your Refaced Kitchen

Refacing your kitchen cabinets can be a fun project that updates your space, but the transformation doesn't stop there. Once your cabinets have been refaced, it's time to elevate your kitchen even further by making the most of every aspect of the space. From stylish accents to functional upgrades, here are some tips for maximizing the impact of your refaced kitchen

Enhance with Accents:

  • After refacing your cabinets, consider adding stylish accents to complement the new look. This could include decorative hardware such as knobs and handles in coordinating finishes, or even a statement backsplash to add visual interest.

Upgrade Your Lighting:

  • Good lighting can make all the difference in a kitchen. Consider upgrading your lighting fixtures to enhance both functionality and ambiance. Under-cabinet lighting can illuminate your workspace, while pendant lights or a chandelier can add a touch of elegance to the room.

Add Personal Touches:

  • Make your refaced kitchen feel like home by adding personal touches that reflect your style and personality. This could be artwork, family photos, or even a collection of your favorite cookbooks displayed on open shelves.

Create a Cozy Dining Area:

  • If space allows, consider creating a cozy dining area within your kitchen. Whether it's a breakfast nook or a small dining table, having a designated dining space can make mealtimes feel special and inviting.

Keep it Organized and Functional:

  • Finally, to truly make the most of your refaced kitchen, keep it clean, organized, and functional. Regular maintenance will help preserve the beauty of your wood or rigid thermofoil (RTF) cabinets, and ensure that your kitchen remains a welcoming and functional space for years to come. Ask about our UP-KEEP PRO service for regular maintenance of your cabinetry. This is a great way to have our team re-visit your home following your cabinet refacing and keep your kitchen looking and functioning like new.
