Is Your Kitchen a Candidate for Cabinet Refacing?

If your kitchen is looking tired and worn, you're probably wondering whether kitchen cabinet refacing is a good option. Here's how to tell.

Kitchen cabinet refacing involves replacing the fronts of your cabinets and drawers. In essence, you're adding a new "face" to the existing boxes and transforming the look.

Kitchen Cabinet Refacing: How are the Cabinets?

If your cabinets are structurally sound, with interior sections that are in good shape, you would fare well with kitchen cabinet refacing. This is the case for many home owners who have oak cabinets from the 1980s and want to update the look with a more modern cherry or maple, for example. Kitchen cabinet refacing creates that transformation and allows them to avoid the cost of removing the cabinets and buying new ones.

Kitchen Cabinet Refacing: How is the Layout?

If you're happy with your kitchen layout and just want an updated look, kitchen cabinet refacing is the ideal situation. When you get into reconfiguring cabinetry and moving appliances around, you'll need to buy some new cabinets and are better off replacing all of them.

Kitchen Cabinet Refacing: Countertop and Sink, too?

Many people who have their kitchen cabinets refaced also switch out their countertop and sink. This provides a complete new look for the whole area and avoids issues with the cabinets looking too new against the old countertop. Many kitchen cabinet refacing company provide these services and it's ideal to get all the work done at once.

Kitchen cabinet refacing can create an exciting new look in your kitchen. If you meet the criteria--quality cabinets, a good layout and a desire for other small changes--this type of remodeling can provide a great boost to your kitchen design.
