Should I Reface My Kitchen Cabinets?

January 5, 2021

Imagine this; you’ve been taking a look around your kitchen lately, and you’ve decided it’s time to remodel the space.  However, you don’t have an enormous budget to work with, so decisions need to be made about what can and can’t be replaced. Of course, one of the major focal points of any kitchen is the cabinets, and it’s often one of the first things that homeowners look to replace in the kitchen. However, replacing your entire cabinet system is expensive, and many homeowners try to avoid a complete replacement when possible. If you’re trying to remodel your kitchen and breathe new life into the space, but you would like to avoid replacing your cabinet system entirely, you should consider refacing your cabinets!

What is Cabinet Refacing

Essentially, cabinet refacing is the process by which you remodel existing kitchen cabinets and update the finish on the system, making it look like a brand new system. This process is achieved by removing your cabinets existing doors, replacing them with doors with your new finish, and applying that same veener to the rest of the cabinets. This provides the cabinets with a brand new aesthetic, at a fraction of the cost, and without replacing kitchen cabinets that are in otherwise great condition.

Should I Reface My Cabinets?

The answer to this question is dependent on a few things. First of all, how old are your kitchen cabinets? If the cabinets are newer and in generally good repair, it is often better to reface the cabinets as opposed to replacing the entire system. However, if the cabinets are operating as well as they used to be, or if they are not constructed from the right material, they may not absorb the veneer properly, making the process a relatively waste of time & money. Be sure that it makes sense to keep your existing cabinets with a new finish, and that you aren’t trying to put a new finish on a cabinet the doesnt operate properly anymore.

Do You Like Your Current Lay-Out?

The last question you should ask yourself is whether you like the current design of your kitchen or not. While refacing your cabinets can breathe new life into the space, it won’t allow you to adjust the lay-out of your kitchen, which is often one of the things homeowners are most interested in accomplishing when it comes to their remodel. If you’re happy with the design of your kitchen, you’re just looking to breathe new life and redesign the color scheme, refacing is a fantastic choice!
