There's a lot of hard work and solid materials that go into creating kitchen cabinets. Not to mention the money you've already spent on building up your kitchen.

So, once those cabinets start to show a bit of wear or fall out of style, is it time to throw all that hard work, good materials, and money down the drain?

Of course not!

Then, how do you fix your old kitchen cabinets to keep them modern and flawless?

You guessed it! Cabinet refacing.

Refacing your kitchen cabinets is simply a matter of removing doors and drawer fronts and applying a new veneer over the existing hard structure of your cabinets.

Other parts like the hinges, handles, and drawer pulls can be reused if they are in good condition. Or, if you are feeling like it, you can replace them too, giving your kitchen a fresh new modern look.

And the best part is that it's less expensive than replacing your cabinets. How much, you may ask?

According to Angi (previously Angie's list), cabinet refacing costs 30% to 50% less than a custom cabinet replacement.

Plus, the process is super straightforward and fast. But, before we go there, first you need to make sure your kitchen cabinets are refacing material.

Sadly, not everyone can benefit from this time-saving and budget-friendly process.

Which Kitchen Cabinets Are Good Candidates for Refacing?

  • Kitchen cabinets made of plywood or medium-density fiberboard (MDF) panels with a solid box construction are good candidates for refacing.

  • Other good candidates are those kitchen cabinets with face frames made of solid hardwood.
Once you've checked that your kitchen cabinets fit the description above, you also need to evaluate the state of the drawer tracks and internal storage elements. If these are not in good shape, refacing costs could be slightly higher.

Now that you've passed the checklist, it's time for the million-dollar question: How does kitchen cabinet refacing work?

The Kitchen Cabinet Refacing Process

This process is usually the same with any provider, and it's pretty simple. However, if you reface your kitchen cabinets with Cabinet Reface Direct , you'll be able to keep using your kitchen while our installers are carrying out this process.
  • Step 1: We will remove your cabinets' doors, drawers, and fronts.

  • Step 2: We will use sandpaper and a degreaser to allow for solid adhesion of the refacing.

  • Step 3: We will cover the cabinet's faces with a matching veneer. We use strong adhesive and further secure it with small pin-nails.

  • Step 4: We'll add new hinges or re-use the ones you have if they are in good shape, and install your new doors and drawer fronts.

  • Step 5: We will conduct the final inspection with you to make sure everything is to your liking. If there are any issues, the installer will be able to address them.

We weren't kidding when we said this process was fast.

How Long Does It Take To Reface Kitchen Cabinets?

On an average 10x10 kitchen, it would take us three days to reface your cabinets. Time varies for kitchens bigger than that. Usually, a day more at the most.

Here's how our kitchen cabinet refacing calendar would look for the average size kitchen we mentioned before.
  • Day 1: Is when we remove parts and prepare your new cabinets.

  • Day 2: Boxes are finished, new drawer fronts are assembled, and doors are hung.

  • Day 3: Door adjustments, applying finishing touches such as cabinet hardware and clean-up.
Simple and easy.
