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 also 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.
