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.
  • And, in most cases, you can continue to use your kitchen while your kitchen cabinet refacing project is underway!

What is Cabinet Refacing?

Simply put, cabinet refacing (also called cabinet refinishing) is essentially a form of cabinet renovation. It restores and upgrades your existing cabinetry, without changing the structure or layout of your kitchen.

Surface panels can be removed from the cabinet exterior to change the colour and appearance of your cabinets and hardware can be upgraded to complete the look.

Cabinet Refacing can usually be completed in less than a week – a much shorter timeframe than needed for new kitchen cabinets. And, in most cases, you can continue to use your kitchen while your kitchen cabinet refacing is underway.

How Much Does Cabinet Refacing Cost?

The cost of kitchen cabinet refacing in Toronto for a standard 10ft x 12ft kitchen ranges between $1000 - $9000, depending on the scope of your project.

On average, the cost of replacing kitchen cabinet doors and drawer fronts only, or refinishing cabinet surfaces with a new veneer and protective coating, ranges between $1000 - $3000. Quality wood veneer and high-end hardware will increase the cost of your cabinet refacing further.

A more extensive refacing to replace all doors, covering all cabinet fronts and sides, adding new drawer boxes, glass doors, add-on cabinets, and pot and pan drawers, can cost between $7000 - $9000.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is cabinet refacing a good idea?

If you like your overall kitchen layout, kitchen cabinet refacing is an economical way to update the look of your kitchen with minimal disruption and waste.

How will the installer change the look of my kitchen cabinet doors?

When completing kitchen cupboard refacing the framework of your cabinets (aka the cabinet box) remains intact, however the surface material can be refaced to refresh the cabinet box. Additional elements such as cabinet doors, drawer fronts, cabinet door hinges and handles, will also be replaced.

You can select from several cabinet styles and colours to enhance the appeal and functionality of your new kitchen.

What cabinet style and colour options can I choose from for my cabinet resurfacing in Toronto?

Home Depot offers a wide variety of style and colour combinations for cabinet resurfacing to go along with your new cabinet doors and drawers. Our door and drawer options include: Modern Shaker, Slab, Classic Arch and Cathedral.

No matter what you choose, our expert installers will find the right cabinet refinishing options for your cabinet boxes to match your cabinet refacing project.

Available finishes include 3D Laminates in matte and texture, high gloss acrylic, and 5-piece textured woodgrain options.

Can Home Depot installers paint my cabinets in Toronto?

The Home Depot does not do kitchen cabinet painting in Toronto, but kitchen cabinet refacing gives you more: all-new cabinet doors, drawer fronts and available enhanced storage options, with a range of colours and styles for you to choose from.

As part of cabinet refacing, our expert installers will help you select cabinet resurfacing materials for your cabinet boxes to replace worn out, faded ones with a new finish or colour.

Should I reface or paint my cabinets in Toronto

Kitchen cabinet refinishing or painting is not recommended in most cases, as kitchen cabinet and cupboard surfaces often cannot be repainted. This is because blemishes often can’t be concealed with new paint or cabinet resurfacing, making cabinet refacing the better option.

How long does it take for kitchen cabinets refinishing near me?

Once installation begins, most cabinet refacing projects can be completed in under 1 week.

This estimate covers the total time for removal and replacement of cabinet doors and drawer fronts, installation of enhanced storage solutions, and cabinet resurfacing in Toronto.

How long does kitchen cabinet refacing last?

With proper care and maintenance, the results of your cabinet refacing could last as long as ten years. The Home Depot offers high-quality cabinet components, available in a range of durable materials. All parts are backed by our one-year parts and labour warranty.

Does cabinet refacing look cheap?

Cabinet refacing does not look cheap and can help refresh a dated kitchen and improve the value of your home without having to do a complete knock-down and remodelling.

Can you do my countertops as well?

Yes. New and custom kitchen countertops for cabinet refacing projects can be installed for an additional cost.

Ask your installer about available materials and patterns, as well as a cost estimate, to add new countertops to your cabinet refacing project.

What are the available methods of payment?

All major credit cards are accepted, as well as financing options with The Home Depot Consumer Credit Card.
