Can You Really Complete a Total Kitchen Overhaul Without Replacing Your Cabinets?

A modular kitchen design

Many homeowners assume that they have to spend their entire life savings just to give their kitchen an overhaul. They assume they’ll need to replace their appliances, buy new cabinets, have new floors installed, etc. The good news is that there is a way to get like-new cabinets without replacing them: Cabinet refacing. Read on to learn more about the process and the advantages to this unique process.

The Process of Cabinet Refacing

When you choose cabinet refacing, we don’t actually remove your cabinets and install new ones. Instead, we cover up all the exposed frames with either a thin veneer or real wood. We make sure that the doors and drawer fronts also match your new veneer or wood. You may also choose to update your hinges, pulls, knobs, and crown molding as well. The result is the look of 100% new cabinets without the cost and hassle of removing and replacing them.

The Many Advantages to Cabinet Refacing

If you want a kitchen remodel then there are many reasons you may want to choose cabinet refacing over cabinet replacing. First of all, it’s more affordable. This allows you to fit “new” cabinets into a tight budget. It can also help open up funds to spend elsewhere in the kitchen, such as on a new island or your dream oven.

Second, refacing your cabinets takes a lot less time than it would to replace them entirely. You can use your kitchen the entire time we’re refacing your cabinets, which means that you’ll have less of a hassle to deal with. It also creates less dust and is simply a cleaner process. Likewise, you’ll be happy to know that it’s an eco-friendly process that allows you to continue using the materials already in your cabinets instead of simply throwing them away.

The Main Disadvantage of Resurfacing Your Cabinets

There is really only one big reason that cabinet resurface may not work for you, and that’s if you want to change the actual layout of your kitchen. If you are planning to add cabinets, or perhaps add an island, then you may need additional cabinets. One option is to reface the cabinets you have and then add the new ones as needed. At Cabinet Magic, we create all our products in our La Hambra factory and can custom create whatever you’d like.

Not Only Cabinets Are Good Candidates for Refacing

Of course, not every cabinet is a good candidate to be refaced. One of the first things we’ll do when we work with you is to ensure that your current cabinets are structurally sound. They should be free of water damage, major cracks, or warping. If they’re still in good shape, then you’ll love the cost savings that comes along with cabinet refacing.
