Professional Services

Professionals offer fast and easy kitchen cabinet refacing. They'll use the existing layout and remove and discard old cabinet doors, drawer fronts, and hardware. They can even add new countertops and build new cabinets to go along with the newly refaced kitchen cabinets. Your contractor will cover the exposed faces of the frames and install door panels. Then new doors, drawer fronts, and moldings will be added, and finally, new hardware installed.

Major retailers offer hundreds of kitchen cabinet styles, plus wood grain and hardware, to complement your kitchen's new look. If your old cabinets are dark wood, try changing to a lighter shade. This could not only brighten up the entire kitchen, but also make it look bigger. Also, now may be the time to add new curtains and other decorative accessories to complement the newly refaced cabinets.

Refacing is a Good Idea

A few other reasons why refacing your kitchen cabinets is a good idea:
  • It's a simple, hassle-free way of updating your kitchen
  • The result is a bright, affordable, custom-looking kitchen complete in approximately three to six days, depending on the extent of the work
  • The alternative (installing brand-new kitchen cabinetry) can be very costly and time-consuming
  • Refacing your kitchen cabinets means keeping your existing structures, which are often perfectly sound

There's a wide variety of kitchen cabinet door styles, hinges, handles, drawers, and exterior finishes from which to choose, and a professional can help you figure out what is best for your home. Visitors may think you remodeled the entire kitchen, but you'll know the less expensive truth.
