Refacing Kitchen Cabinets
A veneer face-lift makes a “new” kitchen affordable
Refacing is a method of salvaging tired cabinets by applying new wood veneer to otherwise sound cabinet carcases and making new drawer fronts and doors. The technique is faster and costs less than making new cabinets. This author, an experienced kitchen contractor, explains how he does it. A sidebar describes the use of pressure-sensitive veneer.
Beautiful new cabinets done fast.
Inconvenience is Major Factor if you were to Replace all your Kitchen Cabinets.
When we reface your existing cabinets, the project is often completed within 2 to 4 days. There is little disruption to your daily routine. And, the dust and dirt is kept to a minimum.
When replacing kitchen cabinets, you are forced to live without cabinets for one to five weeks or more, depending on the scope of the project. This means you have to:
Eat out frequently, which increases your costs.
Set up a temporary kitchen.
Live with dust and dirt.
Replace your floor if it gets damaged during the demolition.
Repaint areas that get nicked during the demolition.
It can take weeks or months to complete a full scale kitchen remodeling, where cabinets are removed and new cabinets installed. Compare that with kitchen cabinet refacing: often in just a few days, our dedicated factory trained installers, crafts and installs new custom cabinet doors, drawers and hardware.
By simply refacing your cabinets instead of replacing them, you will save:
Wear and tear on your other kitchen elements, such as your floor and countertops.
The Low Cost of Kitchen Cabinet Refacing can Save You Thousands!
Replacing your Cabinets can cost $15,000 to $45,000, as it typically involved when remodeling the entire kitchen. The cost varies based on:
The room size and layout.
The extent of the work to be completed.
Unforeseen issues or concerns during the project.
The type of wood and kitchen cabinet style.
The use of crown molding, accessories and other details on the kitchen cabinets.
Refacing your existing cabinets is the ideal choice for consumers that plan to keep the same kitchen layout, want the work completed in days not weeks, and who want to be able to use their kitchen during the remodeling process.
