What You Should Know About Cabinet Refacing

Daniel Savela

When it comes to home remodeling, changing up the kitchen is often at the top of the list. Homeowners spend a lot of time in the kitchen. The kitchen can also have a significant impact on the value of a home. For those who are remodeling their kitchen, changing up the cabinets is typically high up on their wish list. However, new kitchen cabinets are often pricey. Cabinet refacing allows you to change the appearance of your cabinets for a small fraction of what you would pay for new ones. Here's what you should know.

Your Options

One thing that you should be aware of is that there are multiple options to choose from when it comes to cabinet refacing. The process of refacing is straightforward, the cabinets and frames are covered with a thin veneer of new material, and the pulls and other hardware are replaced to update the cabinets. The veneers used for cabinet refacing are constructed of either laminate, wood, or rigid thermofoils. Various colors, styles, and designs are available. 

How Much It Costs

How much cabinet refacing service costs will depend on how many cabinets you have and the refacing materials you choose. Refacing your cabinets will cost around half of what you would pay to replace them. Real wood veneer will cost more than laminate or rigid thermofoil veneers. The cost of new hardware can also vary significantly and will have an impact on your total costs. If your kitchen's cabinets are in good shape and if you like the layout of your kitchen, cabinet refacing can be a cost-effective way to update your cabinets.

How Long It Takes

Another thing to be aware of if you are considering cabinet refacing is how long it will take. Professional cabinet refacing services typically take between two and four days to be completed. How many cabinets you have and also the type of veneer you choose for the refacing will have an impact on how long the refacing takes. One of the benefits of cabinet refacing is that you can still use your kitchen during the process. Overall, it takes less time than removing and replacing your kitchen cabinets.

Cabinet refacing is a great way to update your kitchen at a fraction of the cost of putting new cabinets in place. There are various options to choose from when it comes to refacing your cabinets. Prices for this service vary, but refacing is much less expensive than replacing your cabinets. It's also a quick process, only taking a few days.
