  1. Replace appliance panels.
    The face panels of appliances can often be replaced, either with the same design or an updated one. Replacing the panels on appliances can enhance your kitchen cabinets by providing accents to the room and making the other elements look as new as the cabinets.
  2. Install a kitchen backsplash.
    Or, if you have one, update it. A new backsplash provides another great accent to your kitchen cabinets. It's a good project to do concurrently with your kitchen cabinet refacing, and can cost as little as $200. And it's not hard: many backsplashes come in sheets for easier installation.
  3. Install new hardware. New hardware can make all the difference, and can cost as little as 99 cents per handle. You can go country or modern, sleek or ornate. It's an easy and often-overlooked way to enhance your newly refaced kitchen cabinets and make your kitchen even more beautiful.

An Affordable Makeover

The cost of kitchen cabinet refacing is approximately half the cost of installing new cabinets. Taking a little extra effort to accent your newly refaced cabinets will complete the new look of your kitchen, and give you extra satisfaction as well as increased home value.
