Kitchen Cabinet Q and A

Answer these questions to see if your kitchen cabinets are candidates for refacing:
  • Are the kitchen cabinet doors and drawer fronts starting to look faded or overly worn?
  • Do the doors and drawers sometimes stick when you open them, due to wear and tear?
  • Are the cabinets and countertops starting to look like they're from another era? Are they in colors popular in the 1970s, like harvest gold, burnt orange, or lime green?

If the kitchen cabinets are still structurally sound and you like their layout, then cabinet refacing may be the answer. This is a great time to install roll-out shelves, high-quality drawer slides, new countertops, islands, and extra cabinets.

Companies that specialize in kitchen cabinet refacing will have hundreds of styles to choose from, as well as a wealth of add-on features. They'll measure your kitchen and prepare a detailed design plan. Once you approve the plan, they'll install attractive new replacements to your specifications, and your kitchen will look brand new. The whole project can be completed in about a week.
