How do you fix water damaged kitchen cabinets?

In some cases, you may need to refinish kitchen cabinets after water damage. Lightly sand the wood to remove the existing finish. Then wipe the wood down with a damp rag to remove debris and allow it to dry completely. Use a sealant to protect the wood and form a base for the stain, then apply an even coat of stain.

What is the average cost to reface kitchen cabinets?

A professional cabinet refacing for a typical 10-foot-by-12-foot kitchen starts at around $1,000 to $3,000 for laminate. Expect to pay $2,500 to $6,000 for real wood veneer. Costs can rise to $7,000 to $9,000 or more for a large project with high-quality wood veneer.

What is the best finish for kitchen cabinets?
