Cabinet resurfacing and cabinet refacing are terms used interchangeably and describe the same process. Both cabinet refacing and resurfacing are efficient and eco-friendly methods to update the appearance of existing cabinets without a full replacement.
Cabinet resurfacing and refacing use the basis of existing cabinet boxes but change everything about their exteriors. Once completed, your cabinets will look totally brand new and will appear completely updated. Essentially, homeowners will get to enjoy the look of custom cabinets at a fraction of the price.
Upgrade Your Kitchen Aesthetics
Cabinet resurfacing/refacing is an affordable way to update the look of your cabinets, and the process consists of the following:
- Removal of your existing doors and replacing them with new ones.
- Resurfacing the face of the cabinetry framework with matching veneers.
- Reinforcing your existing cabinet box infrastructure if necessary.
- Replacing old hinges and hardware with updated options.
The condition of your current cabinets and your kitchen design goals will help determine whether or not cabinet refacing/resurfacing is a suitable option.
Cabinet Refacing vs. Resurfacing vs. Refinishing
Cabinet refacing/resurfacing are one and the same; however, they are entirely different from refinishing in which the same door and drawer styles are kept and only their exterior finish or color is changed. For example, you could migrate from white cabinetry to a solid paint colour by stripping your current cabinets of their solid paint colour to restore their original hardwood grain with a nice finish and seal. The door style would remain the same, however.
If you are interested in a kitchen renovation, refinishing can be a problem, and you may not get the results you’re after because you may not achieve the design update you had in mind. Refinishing is also time-consuming and laborious, and this is why most homeowners will prefer resurfacing/refacing instead. Not only will you save money, but you will also enjoy a whole new appearance, and your kitchen will feel both beautiful and fresh.
