Should you resurface, reface, or replace cabinets? Resurfacing involves sanding and staining, or painting, cabinet doors, drawers, and boxes. Resurfacing Pros. Resurfacing is the least expensive option. Offers a quick color change in kitchens were style and layout is fine, and cabinets are in good shape. Resurfacing Cons. Must be done during warm months for ventilation. Cabinets can only be stained darker, not lighter. Pain can ship over time and absorb dirt.
Refacing involves replacing the doors and drawers, and covering the cabinet boxes with a wood or veneer finish. Refacing pros. Dramatically change the look of any kitchen. Update the door style of the cabinets, repair any broken hardware, and add upgrades. Refacing cons. More costly than resurfacing. Allows for only minor changes to the layout.
Replacing cabinets involves tearing out all existing cabinets and replacing them with new ones. Replacing Pros. Layout, style, and color can all be changed. Opportunity to improve the layout and functionality of the space. Replacing cons. Typically the most costly and time-consuming option. Delays can cause a major kitchen remodel to take weeks, or months, to finish. If you want to reface or replace your cabinets, book a free quote from Envy Home Services today!
