Cabinets are the most visible part of your kitchen. If your cabinets are scuffed, worn down, or just look band, your whole kitchen will look bad. Sometimes your cabinets are well built and work wonderfully, but the doors look old and beat.
Cabinet refacing (aka cabinet resurfacing) is a great way to update the look of your kitchen without going through the whole expense of a cabinet replacement project. Great looking cabinets make your whole kitchen look beautiful. Another great thing about cabinet refacing is that the work can be completed in just a few days.
If the structure of your cabinets is sound, but the cabinets need cosmetic help, cabinet refacing is a great option. The big question is, how much will it cost? Updating your existing cabinets is often much less expensive than installing new cabinets, since your existing cabinets have already been built, installed, leveled, and are already functional. On average, cabinet refacing costs between 30% and 60% less than installing new cabinets.
An average cabinet refacing project can cost roughly $7,500, but it could be considerably less (or more) depending on the size of the job. Also, different contractors can have very different prices. Thatâ€™s why itâ€™s a good idea to shop around and get a handful of estimates before settling on a single contractor.
