Cabinet Refacing: Is It Worth It?

 In blog

When you’re getting kitchen cabinet installation or renovation done, one of the biggest goals is to change the look, position, and design of your cabinet. However, you can save money and effort by not necessarily disposing of a cabinet that’s functionally sound, but not to your liking. Cabinet refacing can match most of the benefits of replacement (matching your other remodeling, a new look) but at far less cost, making it worth looking into.

What Is Cabinet Refacing?

Flooring MatchesCabinet refacing is accomplished by changing out the “skins” of the cabinet. This means taking the doors and drawer fronts and replacing them completely. The rest of the body of the cabinet only gets a new veneer, and hardware like hinges and handles are generally changed out as well. This can cost a lot less, but isn’t necessarily a bargain option, per se. Expect to pay about 50 to 60 percent of what you would if you end up getting a new cabinet from scratch. There are also DIY kits, but these may cost more over time. The entire process will take a few days. Some of the other benefits of this procedure are the fact that it is green. By keeping your cabinet out of the garbage, you are saving trees and keeping MDF, a substance that contains formaldehyde, out of the environment. As an added bonus, there are also lots of different types of veneers available for both laminated and natural wood.
