Refacing kitchen cabinets can be the right choice for you who want to change the appearance of your kitchen with limited budget. As we know, kitchen remodeling project requires a lot of money, especially if we are talking about replacing the entire cabinetry with the new one. Actually, you can still brighten your space without having to replace the entire cabinetry. I’m talking about cabinetry that are still in good condition and are still wearable, but with the outdated design and finish. This can happen when someone buys a house where the previous owner has a completely different tastes and styles.
With the cost under $ 1,000, refacing kitchen cabinets allows you to aim the rest of the money you have to replace the other elements in the kitchen such as the countertop, backsplash, sink, and faucet. Reface kitchen cabinet you already have can be done by a variety of ways depending on your budget and needs. You can replace the doors and drawer fronts with a different door style or wood species, painting or restaining the cabinets, covering all the exposed parts with veneers, and also replace the hardware that will support your kitchen cabinets style.
Refacing kitchen cabinets also allows you to use your kitchen earlier than remodeling the entire cabinets. Reface cabinets only takes about 3 days to 1 week, rather than weeks or months. Not to mention the clutter and mess that would disrupt your home life. You can hire professionals to refacing kitchen cabinets to make sure everything works as you wish, but some people decided to make this as a DIY project to save more money.
