Our cabinet refacing services are an effective, inexpensive way to make it look as if you have replaced all of your kitchen cabinets. Simply select a cabinet face style and hardware you love. We’ll replace the doors and drawer fronts with your selection, and we’ll cover your box frames with material that complements the new look.
Choose from a classic, stained wood style or a more modern, painted finish. You can also choose your refacing building material. Go for solid wood or the cheaper (yet very convincing) thermofoil and polyester options.
Cabinet refacing gives you the opportunity to not only change the color and hardware of your cabinets but also the entire look. Go from a flat, boring cabinet face to Shaker style or even glass-front. Take a look at our gallery for inspiration and to see some astonishing before-and-after photos.
If you are happy with the way your kitchen cabinets are organized, there isn’t much point in demolishing them. Even if you would like to add one or two sections to the current layout, we can often do that while keeping the old cabinets in place. If you would like to install a matching island to create additional space, we are here to help with that, as well.
Are you happy with the amount of storage your cabinets provide and the way the shelving is organized? We can help add or take away shelves and even provide some racks, sliders, and other organizational aids.
However, if you are far from happy with the amount of space your cabinets provide or the way in which that space is organized, a complete cabinet overhaul may be the best choice for you.
If the doors are broken or the exterior hardware needs to be replaced, refacing can still be a good choice for you. However, if there are broken shelves, the boxes are in bad shape, or the interior hardware for your drawers are broken, it may make more sense to replace the cabinets.
One of our experts can evaluate your cabinets and help you plan a full replacement if necessary.
If you intend to put your house on the market, refacing cabinets is a great alternative to fully remodeling a kitchen. The return on investment for an upscale kitchen remodel is approximately 54%. For a more low-key remodel, the ROI is closer to 81%.
What does this mean for you?
If you are remodeling your kitchen because you plan to live in your home for a long time, choosing a more expensive remodel could be beneficial. You have more at stake than simply turning a profit. You want to love your kitchen. Any future ROI is just a perk. In this case, taking the plunge and opting for a total cabinet replacement would make sense for you.
However, if you are modernizing your kitchen in order to sell your home, you will likely see a greater return on your investment if you choose cabinet refacing over cabinet replacement. Homebuyers are drawn almost universally to bright, open spaces, and installing new hardware, doors, and veneer can easily achieve this effect.
In this case, you do not need to love the layout of your kitchen. You do not need to love the layout of your cabinets. You simply need to help a potential homebuyer envision themselves in the space.
If you like the style of your cabinets, but you aren’t in love with the color scheme, our cabinet painting professionals are here to help! The painting process involves cleaning and sanding the surface before we prime and apply the color of your choosing.
Even if the color of your cabinets isn’t putting you off, the condition might be. Cabinet painting is a good choice for homeowners whose cabinets have simply seen better days. Years of use leads to chipping, scarring, and unsightly buildup.
Our cabinet experts can fill in gouges, degrease surfaces, and get those cabinets looking like new again. We can also help you find hardware that complements the new look, adding extra appeal to your cabinet makeover.
Unlike with cabinet refacing, you should be happy with the style of your cabinets as well as the layout before choosing this option. That being said, you may be surprised by the effect that new paint and hardware can have on your current cabinets.
We can also add details like trim and crown molding around the tops of the cabinets. If you are hoping for a completely different look, however, refacing may be the best option.
As with refacing, you should be happy with the layout of your kitchen. We can help you with additional details such as an island or backsplash. However, adding new wall cabinets or making it so that the island cabinets match the existing cabinets becomes more difficult when painting vs. refacing. The color will match, but the cabinets themselves may be slightly different, depending upon availability.
If you are hoping to add storage without fully replacing your cabinets, refacing is likely the better choice.
The cabinet boxes and interiors need to be in good shape. However, when it comes to painting, the cabinet doors also need to be in good condition. We can clean them, sand them, and fill them. If the doors are broken or rotted beyond repair, we will make every effort to match the style and material. However, there is a chance that replacing a door and painting to match will be impossible.
There are other, creative options that may help offset this issue, such as choosing to make a cabinet glass-front instead. One of our experts can walk you through your options.
