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 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.

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?
Home Depot offers a wide variety of style and color combinations to reface your cabinets. Our door and drawer options include: Modern Shaker, Slab, Classic Arch and Cathedral.
Available finishes include 3D Laminates in matte and texture, high gloss acrylic, and 5-piece textured woodgrain options.
Can the installer paint my existing cabinets a different colour?
The Home Depot does not paint existing cabinets. However, our expert installers can help you select surface materials to replace worn out, faded ones with a new finish or colour.
Should I paint or reface my kitchen cabinets?
Some kitchen cabinet and cupboard surfaces cannot be painted. In some cases, blemishes cannot be concealed with a new paint and refacing is the better option.
How long does cabinet refacing take?
Once installation begins, most cabinet refinishing projects can be completed in under 1 week.
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 for your new countertops.
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.
