After you have lived in your home for several years, you might want to change some things about the way it looks. One popular way to give your home a fresh, new look is to change your kitchen cabinets. By giving your cabinets a new style or a fresh door and hardware, you can drastically change the look of your home. Complete cabinet replacement is expensive, but there are other options.

Cabinet refacing is a cost-effective way to change the look of your cabinets without going through an entire cabinet replacement process – an excellent option for anyone with an outdated kitchen. It can be difficult and expensive to keep up with interior design trends when you need to replace your cabinets each time you want a change. With cabinet refacing, you can keep up with kitchen design trends easily.

Benchmark Home Improvements offers top-quality cabinet refacing services in New Hampshire as an alternative to cabinet replacement.

What Is Cabinet Refacing?

Rather than completely replacing your kitchen cabinets, cabinet refacing involves keeping the body of the cabinet, or the cabinet box, and replacing the kitchen cabinet doors only. This is less wasteful and more cost-effective than replacing the cabinets altogether. If your kitchen cabinets are still in good shape, then cabinet refacing could be a great option for you.

How Cabinet Refacing Works Vs. Cabinet Replacement

Each cabinet refacing process follows a similar multi-step process. The process will vary in length depending on the size of your kitchen and the complexity of the refacing that we need to do. In general, cabinet refacing follows these steps:

  1. Remove cabinet doors and drawers
  2. Clean and sand down the cabinet box and existing cabinet and drawer infrastructure
  3. Cover cabinet box sides and shelves with updated material (veneer, laminate, a fresh coat of paint, etc.)
  4. Prepare new cabinet doors and drawer fronts
  5. Replace cabinet hardware
  6. Install new cabinet doors and drawer fronts
  7. If necessary, install new hinges on doors

Why Should I Reface My Cabinets?

You might want to consider refacing your cabinets if your current ones are old and outdated or a style that you don’t particularly like. Refaced cabinets allow you to change the color and style of your cabinets without the cost of replacing them completely.

Another reason to reface your cabinets is that they can help increase your home’s value. If you are thinking about selling your home soon, then you might be doing some home improvement projects. Kitchens and baths are the most desired rooms in any home, so make sure you add cabinet refacing to your list so that your kitchen can stand out to potential buyers.
