The Pros & Cons of Cabinet Refacing


Take a look around your kitchen. Are you happy with what you see? Are you looking to make some improvements, but aren’t ready for a full-blown kitchen remodel? If you’re looking to spruce up your kitchen on a budget, one option to consider is cabinet refacing.

According to professional cabinet installers, refacing your kitchen cabinets is a great alternative to complete cabinet replacement and installation. This cost-effective approach is not only easier on your wallet, but also takes significantly less time than custom cabinet installation. Cabinet refacing allows you to keep your existing layout, while completely transforming the appearance. Great craftsmanship is hard to come by, so if your cabinets are in great structural shape, there’s no need to replace them.

What is Cabinet Refacing?

Cabinet refacing is simply an update your existing cabinets. This can include replacing the doors and drawer fronts, updating all hardware, and covering the sides of your cabinets with veneer or laminate.

Why Cabinet Refacing?

  1. Cabinet refacing is environmentally friendly. Updating your kitchen cabinets through refacing uses less resources than brand new kitchen cabinet installation.
  2. Cabinet refacing is less expensive than new cabinet installation.
  3. Cabinet refacing takes less time than new cabinet installation (most kitchens are refaced in 1-3 days).
  4. Cabinet refacing requires no demolition. Your kitchen will be accessible as you undergo the new transformation.

While cabinet refacing is only updating your kitchen cabinets, it’s important to remember that a professional is always the best bet. While it may seem to cost less to take the DIY route, in the long run, hiring a professional to complete your cabinet refacing will save both time and frustration.
