Cabinet Refacing vs Kitchen Renovation
- Cabinet refacing (also called cabinet refinishing) restores and upgrades your existing cabinetry, without changing the structure or layout of your kitchen.
- Surface panels are removed from the cabinet box exterior to change the colour and appearance of your cabinets.
- Hardware can also be upgraded to complete the look.
- Cabinet Refacing can usually be completed in less than a week (unless it is a part of a larger home project)– a much shorter timeframe than needed for a full kitchen renovation.
