Kitchen Cabinet Refacing

The first and easiest option for your kitchen remodeling project is to give your old or outdated cabinets a new look by replacing your existing doors and drawer fronts. Cabinet refacing is a growing alternative to replacing old or outdated kitchen cabinets. Homeowners save time, trouble, and thousands by “recycling” their existing cabinet boxes which are re-covered to match the new drawer fronts and soft close doors that you like best. Cabinet refacing can save up to 50% over new cabinets with the same great look!

Brand New Kitchen Cabinets

Your second option for your kitchen remodeling project is to completely replace your existing cabinets with brand new cabinets and perhaps a brand new custom design layout. Replacing your cabinets will give your kitchen or bathroom a completely new look. You can create more storage space and more pronounced details within your cabinetry. The typical price involved when replacing your existing Cabinets can cost $15,000 to $45,000, when remodeling the entire kitchen.

What our customers have to say

What our customers have to say

We purchased a home with plans of renovating the kitchen. We couldn’t come up with a good layout until Lee came in and saved the day. The team at Benchmark was great to work with. Lee was responsive and accommodating with great ideas and suggestions. He put together an amazing design, and included little extras to make our kitchen amazing. We were able to schedule the install quickly and the guys were skilled, friendly and considerate. The kitchen was done in a week and looks amazing. 5 stars for Benchmark, thank you.

Brian McGuinty 

Lee and his team were amazing to work with. Lee spent a great deal of time discussing remodeling options with my husband and I. Our main goal was replace the original “builder grade” cabinets with new cabinets and design a functional kitchen. I also wanted to keep my tiled backsplash.

Through this process we added a an additional cabinet and a large movable island. We love our new kitchen and it is functional!!!!!

Lee’s team was very respective of my home and were able to save my backsplash. We are so pleased with the end results and highly recommend Lee and his team!

You can not go wrong with Benchmark Home Improvements!
From the very first call to the final product the process was seamless. The owner, Lee, was very thorough about explaining the different cabinet solutions so we understood our options. Within a hour of measuring my kitchen he had provided a interactive 3D conceptual of how the kitchen would look with the new cabinets.
His expertise and attention to detail made for a great experience and my kitchen is not just a quality product but also beautiful! If you are considering doing a kitchen makeover I highly recommend calling Lee from Benchmark- you will not be disappointed! Shop local!

Deana Arden 

Ten stars for sure!! Lee did a thorough job explaining what could be done, and Pete and Eddie made the miracle happen. Gone are the dark, dilapidated 80’s broken cabinets and the dingy dated ceramic tile and grout. Replaced by sleek black granite counters and pure white modern cabinets, with freely-gliding maple self-closing doors and drawers. Eddie and Pete constantly went above and beyond duty, including installing my new crystal ceiling light, painting above the backsplash, and multiple Dunkin’ Donut runs for the kids! (Sorry, Lee!) And who could ever forget Adriano?! But that is another story! High quality materials and superior craftsmanship–and still beating the big box store estimate. Who could ask for more?
