You do not have to invest in a full kitchen renovation to make the space look modern and attractive. At Kitchen Cabinets Calgary by Breton, we have seen cabinet painting and cabinet refacing transform old, outdated kitchens back into the heart of the home. Cabinets take up the majority of space in the kitchen. By default, they become the focal point. If they are old, dark, chipped, or grimy, the look of the entire room suffers. However, as with most home projects, the thought of replacing one element creates a domino effect of projects. This can quickly become overwhelming and expensive. As a result, many homeowners don’t even bother to pick up the phone. By choosing cabinet painting or refacing, you won’t have to worry about your kitchen being out of order for more than two to four days. You have the flexibility to skip or delay working on other elements such as the backsplash and countertops. Oftentimes, addressing these projects becomes a requirement when all of the cabinets are being ripped out. If you want to tackle a full kitchen remodel, Kitchen Cabinets Calgary by Breton can certainly help with all of your kitchen renovation needs. However, you would be amazed by how much can be accomplished by simply changing the style or color of your cabinets.

Cabinet Refacing

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.

  1. Do you like the layout of your kitchen?  

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.

  1. Do you like the layout of your cabinets? 

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. 

  1. Are your cabinets structurally sound? 

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.


Advantages of Cabinet Refacing in Real Estate

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.

Cabinet Painting

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.

  1. Are you happy with your current cabinets? 

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. 

  1. Are you happy with your current kitchen? 

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.

  1. Are your cabinets in good shape? 

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.

Going Green

If you are environmentally conscious, this is yet another reason why cabinet refacing or cabinet painting could be the right choice for you. Consumers are growing increasingly aware of the impact they have on the environment. Therefore, they are putting forth an extra effort to produce less waste. Kitchen Cabinets Calgary by Breton supports the initiative to reduce, reuse, and recycle.

Demolishing and throwing out cabinets just because they are ugly creates unnecessary waste. You may be able to sell or donate old doors, drawers, and box frames. However, why go through the hassle when you could simply use the old cabinets yourself?

Cabinet refacing and cabinet painting takes fewer materials to produce the desired effect, making it a green choice as well as an effective stylistic choice.


Details can make a huge difference, especially when it comes to kitchen cabinets. Carpentry options such as crown molding, corbels, and decorative panels add attractive detail and more of a customized look. We provide a level of craftsmanship that can accommodate a wide variety of tastes and styles. Kitchen Cabinets Calgary by Breton is available to discuss all the creative possibilities that can decorate your cabinets and enliven your kitchen.

We also have the ability to take on other painting or refacing projects, such as mantles and fire places, banisters and railings, and more.

My husband Gerald and I hired Chief for our cabinets. We were wanting to save some cabinets and add new ones. We... wanted to have our upper cabinets go the the ceiling and also needed to modify areas for a bigger fridge, new hood fan, microwave and wine fridge.They realized all of our wish list and even came up with some great design ideas to make it all look so fresh and modern. Their experienced really showed in how well they managed to seamlessly incorporated the new cabinets and modifications. The quality of the work and finish is also impeccable.Vincent was very thorough with the sales and quote process and Max ran a really tight ship onsite with their many in-house staff and he also managed the other necessary trades well.They brought in very professional and presentable subcontractors for plumbing, electrical, tile, glass and countertops.The project was finished a week later than planned but that was apparently due to a supplier's late delivery of our sink.Overall we had a great experience and would hire them again for our upcoming bathroom renovation!read more

Vince at Chief Cabinets went above and beyond to help me find the right place to get some cabinet doors. Many places... wouldn’t do a small job, but Vince set me up with a place they recommended, and when I called they already knew I was coming and in the end did a great job. I was so grateful for Vince’s help. I would definitely use this company!read more

We had our kitchen cabinets and living room built-ins refinished by a not so professional contractor and the color... turned out to be way off from the brown we had requested to a weird aubergine purple-ish color. Other contractors told us that new doors and panels would be in order to fix this mess at an outrageous cost. Some even suggested that the entire cabinetry would have to be replaced to new.Cabinets by Chief came to the rescue and was able to sand and refinish to a much more desirable off white color, their very own Chief Cloud White.They also did an amazing job with the new bevel edge glass subway tile backsplash and under cabinet lighting to bring it all back to life! Vincent suggested this beautiful polished staturio marble imitation tile for the fireplace and it turned out amazing.My wife and I are still over the moon with the work and its quality. The high quality lacquer material and professional application by Chief made everything look brand new again! The finish is smooth and so easy to wash and maintain as opposed to the very porous material the previous contractor had used.The job was completed in the 10 working days that they had planned for and our house was left impeccably clean. Their system for the onsite portion of the work was flawless with very meticulous preparation and masking. They used a powerful fan to exhaust the fumes and dust therefore leaving their cleaning crew with minimal work.Vincent and Max were great at educating us on the process and establishing a great schedule that minimized the downtime of our kitchen and living space. Yana and Chico were very prompt and diligent with the onsite work and very pleasant to have around.We highly recommend Cabinets by Chief for your remodeling project and we will higher them again for our next phase!read more
