A kitchen cabinet refacing job could be the answer. Not only does refacing take less time than a complete replacement, it offers outstanding return on investment.

The Financial Benefits of Kitchen Cabinet Refacing...

While a cabinet replacement job can run $30,000 or more, kitchen cabinet refacing typically costs just slightly more than the cost to refinish or repaint. When added to the fact that most of today's new cabinetry isn't constructed with the same high quality materials as your existing kitchen cabinets, refacing can be a fast and easy way to upgrade the functionality and appearance of your kitchen for much less money. What's more, when you choose refacing, you typically won't face many of the hidden costs of replacement. For example, by opting for refacing rather than replacing your kitchen cabinets, you won't need to spend money to replace your flooring, rewire, or move existing outlets in order to accommodate your existing appliances and fixtures.

Kitchen Cabinet Refacing Is Easier ...

In addition to being more affordable, refacing is easier. When you reface your kitchen cabinets, you won't need to worry about the mess associated with demolition. Instead, your kitchen cabinet refacing contractor will be upgrading your existing kitchen cabinet framework and installing new hinges, doors and drawers.

Is Refacing Right For You?

While kitchen cabinet refacing is typically an affordable and fast solution for many homeowners, it isn't the right answer for everyone. While your kitchen cabinet refacing contractor can incorporate various options that will give your cabinets increased functionality and storage capability, such as lazy Susans and spice racks, if your kitchen cabinets are severely damaged or of very poor quality, refacing may not be the best solution for you.

If you're looking for an affordable way to upgrade your kitchen's appearance and add value, refacing your cabinetry is one option worth investigating.
