What is Cabinet Refacing?

If you’re like many homeowners, you plan to keep the existing layout of your kitchen exactly the same but wish to renew and update its look. Cabinet refacing, also known in the industry as cabinet resurfacing, lets you keep your existing kitchen intact while completely transforming its appearance. Feel free to view our time-lapsed cabinet refacing video below and watch the transformation take place right before your eyes!

In most cases, refacing is the smarter choice compared to gutting your kitchen and installing all new cabinets. 

Refacing cabinets is the perfect solution for many homeowners because:

  • It saves a lot of time and mess (the average installation is 3–5 days).
  • No remodeling permits are required.
  • You save about 50% of the cost of new custom cabinetry.
  • Your choice of new cabinet doors is included!
  • You can still add new cabinetry if needed with a hybrid solution.

Can Every Cabinet be Refaced?

To sum it all up, if your kitchen is well-built and functional there is no reason to tear it all apart. Most structurally sound cabinetry is eligible for cabinet refacing. In the event that you need more storage space, a cabinet reface can be combined with additional matching cabinetry that we build specifically for you, so that you can have a complete, fresh new look. Pantries, desks, extra cabinet units or even a free-standing island can be custom-made by our cabinet shop. Plus, you’ll be able to choose from hundreds of color and style combinations in both wood and laminate.

Is Cabinet Refacing a Permanent Solution?

Our exclusive, double-lamination process means that a thin wood substrate is first bonded to the existing visible cabinet surface to enhance durability. Then, all exterior cabinet surfaces are covered with the final layer of natural wood or laminate refacing materials. As an added bonus, kitchen refacing actually reinforces the strength of your existing cabinets, providing even greater structural integrity for the years to come.
