You can freshen up your cabinets and don’t have to buy the new one by reface it. Refacing kitchen cabinets involves installing a new veneer on the exterior of the cabinet box and replacing the doors and drawer fronts, and this work should be handled by a professional.

These processes are much faster and cheaper than installing new cabinets because the cabinets remain intact and the work is done onsite. If you’re in need of a refreshed kitchen look but are happy with the current layout of your kitchen and your cabinet quality, refacing may be just the route to take. It gives a new face while using the same body.

Refacing process :
  • Remove old doors, drawer fronts, and hardware
  • Resurfacing the frames
  • Exposed cabinet ends with hardwood veneer
The veneer is stained and finished through doors, which are then installed to the recently refreshed frames.

You also can add molding or valences to dress up the cabinets. Another options? You can add new cabinetry or an island to existing the design. Still confuse? You can consult to the refacers which one is good.

Check out the warranty: it generally will cover the new products only, not the new cabinet. You will be applying veneer to the surface, not solid wood.
Your cabinets interiors will remain the same be sure you’re currently comfortable with the way they look and the ease of cleaning them.
