Instead of removing your existing cabinets, we simple remove your old drawers fronts. We then cover/reface your existing cabinet boxes with either 1/4 solid wood, veneer or thermofoil. Next we install the new doors and drawer fronts that match the newly refaced cabinet boxes. We can also install other options, such as new drawer boxes and roll-out shelves.
Some of the major benefits to refacing are:
You will save 50 – 60% of the cost of a complete kitchen tear out. Superior quality of the doors and drawer fronts when compared to builder grade cabinets.
In 3-5 days, your refacing project will be complete. Compare that to weeks, or even months for a new kitchen remodel.
Less mess and aggravation. In most cases you can still use your kitchen during the refacing process.
Electrical work and plumbing are minimized.
Have the option of keeping your existing countertop.
Can add some new cabinetry if needed.
Cabinet refacing is considered a green option to complete kitchen remodeling. It is estimated that 90% of homeowners keep the same basic layout of their kitchens. There is less waste being sent to landfills when you choose refacing. If you have some changes, such as new appliances, that require modifications to your current cabinets, we can usually accommodate that.
Options for refacing are very similar to that of new cabinets. The selection of door styles, wood species, stain colors, glazing, crown molding and hardware are nearly endless. You can have the kitchen of your dreams.
If you are in a real hurry and want your cabinets done even faster, you can choose to “re-front”. This means that only the doors and drawer fronts are replaced and the existing cabinet box will be left as is. If your cabinets are white, almond or antique white, this is an excellent alternative. Also, if you have stained wood cabinets, and don’t require an absolutely perfect match, this option works well. Usually the difference is barely noticed.
Another term you may hear is “cabinet resurfacing”. Basically it refers to putting a fresh look on your cabinets and includes, painting, staining, or refacing. While painting is cheaper and easier than refacing, the results are often disappointing. If your cabinets are in excellent condition, painting may be a viable alternative, but if they are old and tired and need a nice facelift, refacing is the only way to go. cabinetrefacingtrends.com
