Refacing Process

The cabinet refacing process takes much less time than receiving brand new cabinets. If you were to have your cabinets refaced, the installation process would look something like this:

  1. Every single cabinet door and drawer 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. 

  2. The front portion of all of the cabinet boxes are covered and the cabinet sides are skinned. The sides may also receive a decorative panel.

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

  4. Last but not least, new decorative hardware is put on the doors and drawers. The old hardware can be used with the refaced doors and drawers if it is in good condition.

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 we reface, there are a variety of door prices to fit your budget. In addition to that, cabinet refacing does not take nearly as long as it does to install completely new cabinets. It can take you up to six weeks to receive brand new cabinets, whereas it can take about four weeks to reface your cabinets. As with any project, however, the timeline may vary, so consult with your designer in order to find out a more accurate timeline for your project. Please keep in mind that not all reface projects will be less expensive than receiving brand new cabinets. Consult with your designer to find out which option would be better for you.

Cabinet refacing may not be for everyone, but it can be a great budget-friendly 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.
