Cabinet refacing is like a makeover for your kitchen, breathing new life into your space without the hassle of a full remodel. If you’re curious about this cost-effective and sustainable option, you’re in the right place! We’re here to demystify the world of cabinet refacing and address the most common questions.
1. What exactly is cabinet refacing?
Cabinet refacing is a process that involves updating the exterior parts of your cabinets. This includes replacing doors, drawer fronts, and hardware, while keeping the existing cabinet frames intact. It’s a fantastic way to achieve a fresh look without the expense and disruption of tearing out and replacing entire cabinets.
2. How do I know if my cabinets are good candidates for refacing?
Cabinet refacing works best when your existing cabinet boxes are still in good structural condition. If you’re satisfied with the layout and functionality or looking for some minor custom changes of your current cabinets but want a new look, refacing is likely a great option.
It’s also ideal for those looking to minimize waste and be environmentally conscious.
3. What material is being used for cabinet refacing?
3DL laminate doors. These cabinet doors are built with premium-grade HDF-high-density fibre board that is very strong and maintains its shape for the lifetime of the door. It is coated with some of the best 3DL laminate available on the market. It has a consistent and long-lasting finish that will stand up to heavy use for years to come.
4. How long does cabinet refacing take?
One of the perks of cabinet refacing is its speed. Unlike a full remodel, which can take weeks, refacing typically takes 1 to 2 days, depending on the complexity of the project and the size of your kitchen.
5. Can I change the layout of my cabinets during refacing?

6. Will my kitchen be out of commission during refacing?
Not at all! Cabinet refacing is a minimally invasive process. Your kitchen will remain fully functional throughout the refacing project. You might experience a bit of inconvenience during the removal and installation of doors and hardware, but it’s a small price to pay for a refreshed kitchen.
7. Is cabinet refacing cost-effective?
Absolutely! Cabinet refacing is generally more affordable than a full remodel because it eliminates the need for new cabinets and associated labour costs. It’s a smart choice for homeowners looking to upgrade their kitchen without breaking the bank.
