Complete Your Own Cabinet Refacing

One of the ways that you can make your kitchen look new and fresh is to reface your cabinets. Usually, during regular use, cabinets can become dingy, dull, chipped or damaged. Since cabinets are one of the first things you notice in a room, then the state of those cabinets can have a great impact on the viewer’s impression of the kitchen as a whole.

If you have decided that you want to work to make your cabinets more refreshed and therefore give your kitchen a whole new look, you have a couple of options. You can choose to completely replace your cabinets; however, this takes quite a bit of money and time.

A more budget friendly choice for your cabinets is to reface them. Depending on the type of cabinets you have, their material and design, you will have different choices for refacing.

Before you begin to consider refacing your cabinets, it is important to understand what the term means. Cabinet refacing is different from completely replacing the items or simply painting them.

Think of your cabinets like boxes with doors and shelves. When refacing is performed, the doors and hinges are removed. The original cabinet boxes remain, and the parts of the cabinet that face outward are resurfaced, usually with a type of veneer.

If your cabinets include drawers, the actual front of the drawers is also removed. Once the cabinet boxes have been covered with the new surface, the doors and drawer fronts are replaced.

You can keep the same cabinetry, but add a new and modern style on the doors so that it looks like you have brand new cabinetry. There are many styles and options for your cabinet doors and drawer fronts. Just make sure that you take all measurements before purchasing the new items.

You will be able to replace all hinges and handles or knobs at this time to add an even more modern or traditional style to your cabinets.

Once the drawer fronts are reattached and the doors are replaced, you will have new cabinets that completely change the look of your kitchen. The refacing project is much less pricey than replacing the cabinets as a whole, and the time it takes is much shorter.

Another plus of refacing your cabinets is that you will not have to move out of your kitchen during the work. Instead, your cabinets will still stand and your kitchen will still be functional. Since you will be replacing your cabinet doors, you will have boundless options. For a modern look, you could choose cabinet doors with sleek glass panels, or you could opt for clean edges with minimal design. If you prefer a traditional or antique look, you may wish to purchase wooden doors with a design etched into the surface. The only limitation you will have on style choices will be the size required by your existing cabinet boxes. When it comes to hardware, you will need to decide whether you want handles or knobs for your doors and drawers, whether you wish to include metal, wooden or ceramic, and what style you like best. For a contemporary look, choose a brushed silver finish in minimalistic smooth knobs. If you like a traditional look, you can choose more decorative styling. The choice is yours with the hardware. You will just need to make sure that the hardware will work with both your new doors and the existing cabinet boxes. Refacing your kitchen cabinets can be a simple and inexpensive way to restyle your kitchen. The project will not take as long as cabinet replacement and the result will be just as nice.
