Why is Refacing better than Resurfacing?
Resurfacing kitchen cabinets, also called refacing, essentially gives your existing cabinets a much needed facelift that will transform your kitchens look, style and texture without the hassle, cost and mess of gutting and replacing them.
Painting: A fresh coat of paint look on those tired old cabinets is a cheap way to update your kitchen, but is typically the worst long term option and least desirable option for resale value.
Staining: One of the best things about re-staining kitchen cabinets is that it will give your kitchen cabinets a fresh new color. Re-staining allows you to change the color of your existing kitchen cabinets while still allowing the wood to show through. For those of you that hate the look of painted cabinets, this is a huge plus. If money is an issue in your kitchen remodel, re-staining is a good choice. This will give you a new stained color but it will not change the style. Having an outdated style may not be desirable for you or future home owners.
Refacing: So what exactly is refacing? Good question with an easy answer — Refacing means replacing the doors, drawer fronts and hardware, and covering the sides and framework with peel and stick-on or glued-on laminate, rigid thermofoils (RTFs) or wood veneers over the existing cabinet boxes, and it often looks so natural that it’s difficult for the average person to tell it isn’t the same solid wood all the way through. What you get is a new-looking cabinet at about half the cost. You also avoid the mess and inconvenience of completely removing and replacing your existing cabinets.
Whether you decide to paint or reface, putting a fresh look on those tired old cabinets is a cheap way to update your kitchen. And if you plan on flipping the house for a profit, Refacing provides you with the maximum return on your “sweat equity.” Refacing your cabinets costs a fraction of what buying and installing new ones would, and it can be done typically in 3-4 days.
If home is were the heart is, than the “heart of the home” is your kitchen. If you’ve ever hosted a party, then you know that for some reason most of the action takes place in the kitchen. Take a look around your kitchen. Are you happy with what you see? Did the previous owners lack all sense of style and good taste? Now look specifically at the cabinets. Are you embarrassed to show off your expensive china behind their flimsy, outdated, ugly stained doors? In a matter of days you can say goodbye to that grease-stained oak from the 50’s and say hello to the glossy contemporary of maple or the regal dignity of cherry.
