Cabinet refacing is an ideal choice if the cost of a full kitchen cabinet replacement seems beyond your reach.
If you're unhappy with your cabinets because they're outdated or beginning to show unsightly wear and tear, but you're pleased with the overall layout of your kitchen and available storage space, you can choose to reface your cabinets. Kitchen Cabinets Calgary offers the option of refacing cabinet doors in Calgary.
Cabinet refacing costs add up to far less than replacement, but the result is so convincing it will look like you've done a complete overhaul.
Those who take the plunge and do a total kitchen renovation (which we can help with) may also find that cabinet refacing is an ideal option. Use cabinet refacing to save money on cabinets and buy something else you've been wanting in your kitchen, like a breakfast nook, a new appliance, or new island countertops. Customers have used cabinet refacing as a contingency plan for unexpected issues that pop up during their renovation.

Cabinet refacing is different from our cabinet painting service, in that with cabinet refacing we will replace your existing cabinet doors and drawers with entirely new cabinet faces. This allows you to choose a new design, style, colour, finish, new hardware, and additional elements, to create a new attractive space while keeping the same layout of your existing cabinets.
With cabinet refacing, your cabinet boxes and their layout do not change, just the front facing surfaces of your cabinets are replaced and refinished to bring new life into your space.
While we often use these terms interchangeably, refacing gives you entirely new components with the removal of your existing doors.
Resurfacing and refinishing basically freshens up your cabinets, but keeps the existing materials. Resurfacing may involve stripping or sanding down the wood surfaces or factory finish to apply a new finish.
So what is the basic cabinet refacing process?
Our team of professional, licensed, and insured kitchen renovators remove and dispose of your old cabinet doors and drawer fronts.
We install the new drawer and cabinet fronts. You get to update the cabinet hardware, too! That means new handles and hinges in the color and style of your choice.
We cover your existing cabinet box frames with new wood panels, veneers, or lacquer. No one will ever know your old frames are being utilized!
Some of our kitchen refacing in Calgary customers want to take the process a step further. Depending on your goals and budget, you may choose to include some of the following in your kitchen upgrades in order to give your old kitchen a real wow factor—again, without the cost of a full renovation.
Install new countertops and a new backsplash to give the illusion of a full redo.
Extend existing cabinets to the ceiling; that space above cabinets usually stays dusty and underutilized!
Install additional cabinets, wine racks, and even a custom island if room allows.
Add decorative molding for a bold, updated finish.
Updating old cabinets doesn't have to mean spending big bucks! Choose cabinet refinishing Calgary by KCC and expect to pay about half of what you would for a complete replacement.
Your options for refacing kitchen cabinets are just as extensive as your options for a full replacement. Oftentimes, customers are happier with refacing than with buying new. They can get fully-customized cabinet finishing for less than they’d spend on a brand new factory cabinet set with zero customized features.
We build your new cabinet doors and drawers to your exact specifications. We offer over 2,000 variations of cabinet door styles, and we can match any existing color or stain, thanks to our spray shop facility. Stick with your kitchen’s existing color palette, or try something new! We can accommodate any style.
For this type of reface, our most popular doors and drawer fronts are made from maple or MDF, a type of wood product made from recycled and recovered wood fiber. These work best when spray finishing cabinets with solid colors, like off-whites, greys, dark browns, and more. More expensive wood types like cherry or walnut aren’t strictly necessary for these looks because the wood grain won’t be visible once the finish has been applied. The goal instead is to install something that will wear well over time and keep the solid color looking brilliant.
If you have a specific color in mind, we can match it! Just bring us a paint sample and we’ll do the rest.
Unlike solid color finishes, wood grain is essential when considering stained cabinet doors and drawer fronts. Each species of wood has its own grain pattern and fingerprint. Some wood types are naturally darker, like walnut, whereas maple is a lighter color. You can see the different grains and stains and decide what would match your vision best by visiting our showroom. No matter what you decide, our custom finishing shop can deliver.
Non-wood doors and drawers come with their own benefits and pitfalls. Cabinet doors made from manmade materials can still look amazing! They come in solid colors or can be designed to look like stained wood. They’re a cheaper option, which is always appealing because they come finished from the manufacturer and require no additional on-site spraying.
However, unlike our real-wood options, these doors and drawer fronts can never be refinished. If a door gets scratched or damaged, the only option is a full replacement. If the supplier no longer stocks that type of door at that time, it means you’ll have to get creative! Or reface your cabinets twice.
There are numerous benefits to refinishing your cabinets, as opposed to replacing kitchen cabinets entirely:
The kitchen and bathroom are two spaces in your home that often yield the largest return on investment. Any money spent upgrading these areas is often made back in surplus in the resale value of your home.
Compared to a full cabinet renovation, replacing your kitchen cabinet doors and drawers while keeping existing cabinet boxes and drawer boxes can give you a new beautiful kitchen at a fraction of the cost. A full kitchen renovation in Calgary can cost anywhere between $40,000 to $125,000 and up. Our cabinet refinishing services start at just $3,500.
Compared to entirely replacing your cabinets, an entire kitchen remodel and other expensive renovations, cabinet refinishing can transform your dated kitchen in a timely fashion. Sometimes in as little as two weeks from consult to completion.
Our services give you the flexibility to change the colour palette and accent colours in a room. As your new faces are being made custom for you, your new doors will have a professional durable finish in any colour you choose.

Cabinet refacing in Calgary can cost anywhere from $5,000 to $30,000 depending on the amount of cabinetry being altered. An average kitchen will cost $10,000 to reface.
It is significantly cheaper to use a cabinet refinishing service than it is to replace your cabinets entirely. Keep in mind that with refacing, there is much less material being used, and much less labour involved vs a whole replacement.
There is less demolition and fewer items to remove, you don't need to create a new layout, there is no need to level or adjust new boxes or remove countertops. You simply choose your new finishes and hardware, and our professional team takes care of the rest.
While our refacing services offer an incredible range of custom options, some things will inherently remain the same. Unlike installing new cabinets (which our team can also help with) or undergoing a major renovation, having your cabinets refinished will keep the same existing layout to your kitchen, bath or laundry room and the cabinets in that space.
While a stunning visual transformation that can entirely change the look and feel of a room, if you were finding you had difficulties with the size, layout or features of your cupboards and cabinets, cabinet painting, or cabinet refinishing, won't solve that problem.
Say for example you don't have room to store a countertop appliance you'd like to tuck away, or your cabinets feature fixed shelving that doesn't allow you to adjust or store items in the places you like. Maybe even something smaller like wishing you had a drawer near your oven to store commonly used utensils. These refinishing options simply change the cabinet surfaces while leaving the rest of your cabinets relatively unchanged.
If you are looking to make more major changes to your living space, we offer entirely custom cabinets and kitchen renovations that can bring virtually any vision you have for your home or kitchen to life.
