Cabinets Refacing and Remodeling (New Method)
Refacing your cabinets means replacing all the front facing parts of the cabinet (doors and drawers), but leaving the rest in place. You keep the existing cabinetry framework, but still give it a new look that can change the mood of your kitchen dramatically. You’re looking at a drastically reduced cost to reface your cabinets instead of a full replacement.
Kitchen Cabinets Refacing improves the look and feel of your home in less time than a full remodel. During your cabinets refacing project, your existing cabinet doors and drawer fronts will be replaced with high-quality MDF or wood materials, while the structure of your cabinetry remains.
With cabinets refacing, you can customize your kitchen’s current layout in a variety of ways in less time and at a lower cost than remodeling. In less than a week, you can have a refreshed kitchen within your budget. To inquire about the cost of a cabinets refacing project, call us or schedule a consultation meeting.
Refacing is a pretty quick, simple process that can be completed in a matter of days. Because you’re only replacing front-facing hardware, you’re not disturbing any plumbing or wires that run through the kitchen. The framework of the cabinets needs to be in good shape to be refaced. If their integrity is compromised (such as the cabinet walls feeling soft or the cabinet box is too old to drill new holes), you’re looking at a replacement instead.
Your kitchen will see a lot of wear and tear over the years and your cabinets might take a beating. Most cabinets are made from wood, so water damage is a concern, especially if you’ve sprung a leak. If the wood is starting to warp, showing signs of mould or no longer open or close properly, you’ll want to think about replacing them.
Also, think about the rest of your kitchen: what sections are due to be replaced next? Before you replace the cabinetry, think about what other pieces will need to be swapped out in the next five or 10 years. Think long-term and make sure that your new cabinets will match any updated appliances or countertops in the future.
If you’re happy with your kitchen’s layout, you can get away with refacing the cabinets. But, what if you’re doing a bigger renovation? Knocking down walls or adding more space in the kitchen might mean having to move around your cabinets. In that case, you may find it more valuable to have the old cabinets ripped out and replaced with new ones.
Now, if you decide to replace your cabinets, but they’re still in decent shape, donate them to the Habitat Restore. It may seem like we throw out all the kitchen cabinets when we do demos on our shows, but we do donate as many materials as possible. Like I said, cabinets should last a long time, so someone could still get a lot of life out of them.
Shaker Style Doors (Cabinets Refacing)
Shaker cabinet doors are one of the most popular cabinet styles. The shaker style offers a minimalist look that complements just about any kitchen. Featuring a flat frame with a slightly recessed center panel, shaker cabinet doors are typically made from medium-density fiberboard (MDF) or solid wood, with MDF being more affordable. Wood finishes work well for a traditional or rustic look, while painted finishes, such as white or gray, create a more casual or modern look.
Flat-Panel Doors (Cabinets Refacing)
Most cabinet doors still use a form of contoured design, in which frames and panels are constructed so that the cabinet faces are dimensional rather than flat. This raised panel design, such as is found in Shaker-style cabinets, gives a very traditional look.
However, flat-panel doors, otherwise known as “slab” cabinet doors, are increasing in popularity, largely because they lend a modern look to any kitchen or bathroom.
As is true of raised panel cabinet doors, slab doors can be constructed in many ways, and the construction methods largely dictate the cost of the cabinets. One constant, though, is the fact that slab doors have no frames—they are solid slabs.
- Solid hardwood. This is the most expensive, but also the most durable and solid construction. These doors are formed from solid hardwood boards glued up edgewise. These are found in only the most custom installations.
- Class A, furniture-grade plywood. These are finish-grade plywood panels, in which the face layer is a high-quality hardwood applied over cheaper ply of pine or other softer woods. The edges of the slabs are covered with a hardwood veneer tape.
- MDF (particle board). Medium-density fiberboard is a standard material used for doors that will be painted, or as the core layer for doors covered with plastic laminate or thermofoil.
