When it comes to kitchen remodeling, one of the biggest components that will need to be transformed is the cabinets. Homeowners often get tired of the look of the cabinets despite them being in perfect structural shape. Other times, they think that they need a replacement because the cabinets underneath countertops are no longer up to snuff. While kitchen cabinet installation can cost quite a bit, that doesn't mean there isn't a more cost-effective way to transform the look of your cabinets if they need a facelift.
Enter: cabinet refacing. This process breathes new life into the cabinets without having to undergo a total replacement. It involves replacing the doors and drawer fronts and applying a brand new veneer over the body of the cabinets. The hinges, handles, and drawer pulls are also replaced. If you want to upgrade your cabinets and want your granite countertops to stay intact, cabinet refacing is the way to go.
Here’s why you should consider cabinet refacing for your kitchen remodeling project:
Your existing cabinets will be reinforced.
If your cabinet frames have not been water damaged or become structurally weakened beyond repair, you will benefit more from cabinet refacing. That way, you can still make use of your existing cabinets and free up more money for upgrading the other parts of your kitchen.
Go for the aesthetic you want.
Another advantage of cabinet refacing is you get to follow a style or aesthetic of your choosing. You can select among a variety of veneering options and colors to change the look of your existing cabinets. Real wood veneers like hickory, maple, and birch are available. You even have the option to change the look and grain of the wood by choosing appropriate covers and doors. If you wish, you can also add new trim and molding.
Making a more conscious effort to be environmentally friendly? Cabinet refacing happens to be a sustainable option—especially when you compare it to a full cabinet replacement. With a full replacement, every component of your old cabinets is disassembled and removed, whereas with refacing, the majority of the cabinet frames and structural parts are re-purposed and saved from getting put into landfills. The only things that are altered, really, are the doors and finishes.
It's less complex.
Save yourself the headache and go for a cabinet refacing. Cabinet replacement is a huge task that takes days to complete while refacing only takes as little as a day or two. As long as you hire the right remodeler, then the project will be finished in no time.
You'll get to save money.
Refacing the cabinets can give your kitchen an entirely new look akin to a full cabinet replacement renovation. But beyond that, it also slashes your remodeling budget by upwards of 50 percent! Plus, it gives you the chance to experiment with unique designs like contrasting or two-tone kitchen cabinets.
