How Does Cabinet Refacing Work?

This type of project is a cost-effective solution to a full cabinet replacement, but how exactly does it work? The kitchen cabinet refacing specialists at Total Kitchen Makeover have the answer.

The Details of a Kitchen Cabinet Refacing Project

While a kitchen cabinet replacement involves the total removal of your cabinets, kitchen cabinet refacing leaves the integral cabinet boxes intact while only the external elements are removed and replaced. Here’s what it looks like:

  1. The cabinet doors, drawer fronts, drawer boxes, and hardware are all removed.
  2. A durable hardwood or rigid thermofoil veneer is applied to the existing cabinet boxes.
  3. Custom-crafted components—including the doors, drawer fronts, drawer boxes, soft-close hinges, and soft-close drawer glides—are installed along with your choice of hardware.

The results of a kitchen cabinet refacing project rival that of a replacement, making it the perfect cost-effective alternative. It’s the ideal option if your current cabinet boxes aren’t majorly damaged or rotted, but your kitchen could still use an overall upgrade that lasts for many years to come.
