What’s the difference between Refacing and Refinishing?
You’ll be faced with minimal inconvenience during the renovation
Any disruption to your kitchen can have an impact on your family. If you have your cabinets ripped out and replaced you’ll have a big mess and disruption to the room you use multiple times a day. When you have your cabinets reframed, your kitchen remains in good standing. You’ll have less mess and less dust since most of the cutting is done outdoors and off-site.
You’ll save money
Refacing is much less expensive than replacing your cabinets. New cabinets usually cost anywhere from 1/3 to 1/2 of an average kitchen budget. It can cost anywhere from $20,000 to $50,000 or more to update and redo your kitchen. If your current cabinets are in good structural condition, you can get a new look without the expense that comes with replacing cabinets.
The variety of choices
You’ll have your choice of materials and stain colours when you reface your cabinets, so you can express your own tastes. You can combine the style you love with the right stain for look you want for your kitchen.
You’ll increase your home’s value and are more likely to recoup costs
An updated, fresh kitchen can add value to your home. It is important not to do so much that you can’t recover your investment. The biggest mistake homeowners make is spending more on a kitchen remodel than your home’s value can support.
It’s quick and simple
It can take weeks to do a full kitchen remodel. However, kitchen cabinet refacing can be done in a matter of days. Depending on the size of your kitchen, it can take as little as 4 days in some cases.
If your cabinets are in good condition, there is no need to remove them. They will most likely end up in landfills and contribute to the accumulation of waste.
