Once you've made the decision to reface your kitchen cabinets, there are a lot of choices to be made, besides the most important one of what finish to use.

Other options include:

  • Having the old wood center glides on kitchen drawers replaced with side-mounted tracks on rollers. One refacer claims that almost everyone redoes the silverware drawer. Many customers opt for new, custom-built drawer boxes;
  • Flooring and countertop installations. As long as they've started the job, homeowners want to update the rest of their kitchen;
  • Replacing the sink and faucets, if they aren't in the best of shape;
  • Adding custom-built corner kitchen cabinets or units that fit over the refrigerator, to match the old ones;
  • Adding islands or crown molding.

Improve your kitchen with custom cabinet refacing from Home Depot. Your cabinet doors and drawer fronts will be delivered and installed by licensed professionals within two to three days.

One major retailer offers appliance replacement through its refacing service. Other accessories sold by refacers include lazy Susans, wine racks, pull-out trash bins, flip-out drawer fronts, and pull-out shelves.

Cost of Refacing

Naturally, the cost of refacing your kitchen cabinets depends on how much work is done and what materials are used. A refacing job may run anywhere from $4,000 to $9,000. This cost covers materials including the countertop, trim, shelf and drawer liner, accessories, and tax. The cost would be higher, for example, if the homeowners opt for wood, Corian countertops, a new sink, and luxury features. It all boils down to personal taste.
