Kitchen Cabinets Refacing
In this blog, we cover the benefits of choosing kitchen cabinets refacing instead of other options such as replacing them with new cabinets.
Benefits of Restyling Cabinets
One of the biggest reasons to reface your kitchen cabinets is the cost. It costs about half as much as replacing existing cabinets and that it takes way less time to do also. Another plus to only doing cabinet refacing is that you can still use your kitchen while working on the cabinets. Last but not least, it’s a more environmentally friendly approach to giving your cabinets a fresh new look. Plus it does not add to the landfill. Be sure to keep in mind however, that refacing your kitchen cabinets won’t miraculously fix a bad kitchen design!
Kitchen Refacing Options
You may be asking yourself, ‘What are my refacing options?’ Well, you have almost limitless finishing choices. Veneers are available in a variety of colours, patterns, textures, grains, etc. Which you can mix and match to your hearts content. Rigid thermofoil doors are a good, affordable alternative to wood or laminate doors. You want to go for the real wood feel and look?
