What is Cabinet Refacing?
When you are happy with the footprint/layout of your kitchen but would like to update the look of your cabinetry, refacing is the most effective and affordable way to upgrade your kitchen. It involves replacing all old cabinet doors and drawer fronts, replacing all hinges, replacing all mouldings and covering the exterior boxes with a ¼ inch wood skin.
What is Cabinet Refinishing?
If you are satisfied with the quality of your existing cabinets but would like an updated color or finish then our Cabinet Refinishing system is the ideal solution for you.

Our specialists can create custom stains, glazes, paints, and finishes to suit your desired look.

Should I just get all new cabinets?
Replacing cabinets can cost up to 50% more then refacing and often cause extra headaches. The costs of rewiring electrical connections, replacing flooring, painting, countertops, and a number of more subtle reconfigurations make the basic cost of new cabinets deceptively lower. If you are happy with the layout of your kitchen, cabinet refacing is the fastest and most cost effective way to create your dream kitchen, master bath, mantle, or other custom cabinetry project.
