Are you tired of the way your cabinets look? One option is to replace your cabinets. This will dramatically change the way your kitchen looks and has its advantages. However, many homeowners don’t realize that there is another alternative: Cabinet refacing. Read on to learn five reasons this may be a great option for you and then contact Cabinet Magic at 800-570-4194 if you would like to learn more.

  1. It is a much more cost-effective option
    For most people, the first reason that they consider refacing their cabinets instead of replacing them is because it is a much more affordable option. The way it works is simple. The structure of your cabinets remains. Think of it as the bones of your cabinets staying in place. We then take off the doors, handles, and other facing portions and replace them. This upgrade makes your kitchen appear as though it has brand new cabinets but at a fraction of the cost. In fact, the average savings is about 60% compared to replacing cabinets.
  2. Cabinet refacing takes a lot less time
    If you dread home improvement projects because you know they will take a lot of time, then you will be glad to know that cabinet refacing is very fast. In fact, it takes on average about a week for the typical cabinet refacing project. Compare this with an entire kitchen cabinet that takes about four weeks and you can see that it is much faster.
  3. Cabinet refacing is less messy
    Home improvement projects can be messy. They can involve a lot of saw dust, plastic tarps, and other issues. The good news is that since cabinet refacing does not involve actually removing your cabinets, and because we are not using any spray finishes in your home, the mess is minimal. At the end of each day we are working on your kitchen, we will vacuum, clean up, and wipe down so it stays as clean as possible.
  4. Cabinet refacing is more convenient
    Who wants to have their kitchen unusable for even a day? If you have the cabinets replaced, your kitchen could be out of commission for weeks. This is not the case with cabinet refacing. In most cases, you can use the kitchen throughout the restoration process.
  5. Cabinet refacing is an eco-friendly option
    There are a few reasons that cabinet refacing is an eco-friendlier option than replacing cabinets altogether. First, you are not simply throwing away cabinets that are working just fine. Second, we use renewable local lumber and materials. If you want to reduce the amount of materials that are taken out of the earth to get you new cabinets, then refacing is the right choice.
