A Look at Cabinet Refacing, Refinishing and Replacement

When your kitchen cabinets are worn out, what are your options? Nowadays, you can opt for refinishing, refacing or replacement depending on your needs and budget. To help you pick the right one, here are the differences among them. 

Cabinet Refacing

Cabinet Refinishing

Cabinet refinishing is the quickest and cheapest way to bring life back into your outdated cabinets by restoring or changing their existing finish. They must be in good shape as the process includes paint sanding, stripping and painting or staining. Unlike refacing and replacement, you get to keep all of the components of your existing cabinetry.

Cabinet Refacing

Cabinet refacing is a good choice if you want to update the design or shape of your cabinet front doors. It usually involves using laminates to help strengthen your existing cabinet. However, it can end up giving your cabinets a cheap and fake appearance. Furthermore, substandard materials like particle boards are prone to break down when laminated, which could cost you more.

Cabinet Replacement

Cabinet replacement involves removing your existing cabinets before installing new ones. While it takes longer to get finished compared to refinishing and refacing, it provides you with an opportunity to tackle other kitchen renovations.

Perhaps, you’re planning to change your kitchen layout or install new countertops. With a cabinet replacement, you can install cabinets with different features that will match the kitchen design you have in mind.  Also, it’s not just for major renovations. If your old cabinets are dealing with rot, water damage or pest infestation, then a complete replacement would be the most practical choice.
