Should I Reface Or Replace My Kitchen Cabinets?

Refacing or replacing your cabinets is a question you're likely facing after you move into a new home or if your cabinets are completely outdated. The good news is that any type of work done to your kitchen will likely pay off in the long run. New buyers are always impressed with modern additions, and appraisers appreciate when the owners are looking after the details of their home. Find out more about each one, so you can decide which option is right for you. 

Refacing Vs. Replacing 

Refacing replaces the doors of the cabinets and the fronts of the drawers. It will also give the actual boxes of the cabinets a new veneer. Once the doors are replaced, the veneer is engineered to match whatever color and style you choose for uniformity throughout the whole room. Refacing does a great job at sprucing up the look of your kitchen, and it's typically a fraction of the cost of replacing the cabinets entirely. You can even add extra features like a lazy susan or a roll-out section in the above or below cabinets. It also typically takes less time, and is better for the environment. Refacing can be done in as little as 2 days, and it requires less labor costs as well. 

What Should I Consider 

If the cabinets in your home are starting to rot, then you really have no other option besides to replace the cabinets completely. Replacing is probably also a good idea if the original quality of cabinets was not very good. Unfortunately, you really can only cover your cabinets up so much. Otherwise, you may want to look into refacing. Refacing cabinets will allow you to have access to your kitchen even while the work is being done, which is good news to anyone who wants to keep their routine. While there will certainly be some disruption, refacing is easier on both the homeowner's wallet and their sanity.

Our Clients Love Our Work
These guys were great. Todd, Mitch, Mike. Lorrie (probably forgetting a couple more names) and the team were fantastic to work with. Off the bat their prices were very competitive compared to other companies. Probably would've costed us another 5-10K going with a bigger name company. They completed the kitchen in a good amount of time, were clean, always kept me in the loop. The final product looks amazing. Highly recommend working with these guys.
