Cabinet Refacing vs Cabinet Refinishing
The kitchen stands out as a main room in the home, bringing friends and family together for cooking, eating, and conversation. Being one of the most utilized areas of the kitchen, cabinets are particularly vulnerable due to their durability and constant use. Between normal wear-and-tear, chips, scratches, and fading of paint and stains, cabinets take a beating. Over time, your cabinets will need something to refresh their look. The two highest quality, economical options are cabinet refacing and cabinet refinishing.
Although similarly named, refacing and refinishing are different methods of updating your cabinets without the need of a full kitchen remodel. If the cabinet box itself is still in good condition, cabinet refacing and refinishing are your best options available.
Cabinet refacing covers up your old cabinet box with new wood and replaces the doors, drawer fronts. Refacing makes your kitchen look completely new. Cabinet refinishing, however, only removes and refinishes the current doors and cabinets you have without replacing anything. After, we reinstall your original doors and drawer fronts when finished.
Both are great options, so how do you know which is right for your kitchen?
