When your kitchen cabinets are in decent shape but are in need of a stylistic update, cabinet refacing might be a better option than cabinet replacement. This affordable alternative allows you to achieve the look of custom cabinetry without the associated price tag, giving you the opportunity to refresh the design and functionality of your cabinets sooner than you might think.

Not only is this process cost-efficient, but the cabinet refacing process is also quicker and easier than custom cabinet installation or replacement. Find out how you can reface your cabinets in three easy steps by reading more!

The Cabinet Refacing Process: A Step-by-Step Guide

Step 1: Preparing for Your Cabinet Refacing Project

To get started with your cabinet refacing project, you’ll need to first ensure that your cabinets are suitable for such work. Cabinet refacing is ideal for cabinets that are in mostly good condition and in need of minor cosmetic or structural updates.

A refacing specialist will evaluate your kitchen cabinets to ensure they are a good fit before moving forward with the desired work. If they determine that there are structural issues with your current setup, your refacing specialist will provide suggestions and options to help you find the best solution for your cabinetry.

Step 2: Selecting Options for Refacing Your Cabinets

After your refacing specialist inspects your kitchen cabinets and determines they are a good match, the fun part begins! You’ll now get to choose all the different styles, hardware, and features that will be included in the new design of your cabinets. In addition, you’ll be able to reimagine the functionality of your cabinets to include things like:

  • New drawers
  • Trash pullouts
  • Super Susans
  • Glass doors
  • Spice racks
  • Restructured pantries
  • Decorative legs
  • Raised panels
  • Furniture bases

Your cabinet refacing specialist will guide you through the design process to provide you with custom recommendations based on your stylistic preferences and budget. From there, they’ll prepare the refacing plans for approval before getting started on bringing your vision to life.

Step 3: Refacing Your Kitchen Cabinets

Once a design plan has been approved, your cabinet refacing team will set to work painting, staining, and constructing any new features to be included in your project. Since the layout of your cabinets remains the same, there’s no need to demolish or remove any existing cabinets. The team will perform all work inside your home, resulting in a faster project time frame compared to custom cabinetry installation and replacement.
