Kitchen Cabinet Refacing Costs

The cost of kitchen cabinets is rising as the cost of lumber increases. New cabinets typically cost $5,000 to $20,000 plus installation, and price tag for cabinets can be 35 percent of the cost of a complete kitchen remodeling project. Cabinet refacing can save you 20 to 40 percent of that cost, without the disruption of having all your cabinets replaced.

Try a New Kitchen Cabinet Style

With kitchen cabinet refacing, you can pick a new door style or a type of wood to give your kitchen an updated look. Instead of a traditional oak cabinet, try a maple or cherry look. Among the popular cabinet refacing options are:
  • High arcing panels on cabinet door
  • Cabinet drawers with easy pull-out glides
  • Etched glass door panels
