WCW Refacing Process

  1. WCW only provides new doors. WCW does not refinish doors.

  2. All of the cabinet doors will need to be removed. This also includes all of the hinges and the hardware. The only element that will remain in your kitchen is the cabinet boxes. 

  3. The front portion of all of the cabinet boxes are roll painted and the cabinet sides are skinned with 1/4" material. 

  4. New doors and drawers boxes are then reinstalled. Most customers choose to update their hinges to soft close and for the ultimate transformation the drawer boxes are replaced.

  5. Last but not least, new decorative hardware is put on the doors and drawers.  


Why Reface?

If you are looking to save a little on time and money, you may want to consider refacing your cabinets, instead of completely replacing your existing cabinetry. When refacing, there are a variety of door prices to fit your budget.  Please keep in mind that not all reface projects will be less expensive than receiving brand new cabinets. Consult with your WCW designer to evaluate your kitchen and see what works best for you.

Cabinet refacing may not be for all kitchens, but it can be a great option for you. If you are wondering whether or not your cabinets are eligible for refacing, please schedule an appointment with one of our experienced designers.
