As a result, most homeowners resort to refacing their kitchen cabinets.
Your decision to reface your kitchen cabinets should depend on their structural condition.
Kitchen cabinets that are still functional and in good shape are the best candidates for a refacing project.
Is it cheaper to reface or replace cabinets?
Refacing cabinets cost less than replacing your kitchen with custom cabinets, but don’t rush to cabinet refacing on the assumption that it is a dirt-cheap alternative to new cabinets. Expect to spend $200 to $500 for the veneer materials, plus the costs of new doors, drawer fronts, and hardware.
What is the difference between cabinet refacing and refinishing?
Cabinet refinishing involves removing the existing cabinet doors and drawer faces, sanding or stripping off the old finish, and applying a new paint or stain to the doors, drawer faces, and cabinets. As a result, cabinet refinishing or refacing are more affordable, quicker, and less disruptive than replacing cabinets.
Is cabinet refacing a good idea?
Cabinet refacing is also a cost-effective option, especially for those who are working on a tight-budget. In fact, refacing your old cabinets can save you up to 30%-50% of the cost of replacement, plus you can choose a variety of design and colors so that you can customize their final appearance to your liking.
