pros and cons of cabinet refacing

Cabinet Refacing Pros And Cons

Kitchens are the heart of the home. If you are thinking about rejuvenating the look of your kitchen, consider refacing your cabinets. Rather than a full remodel, refacing can give your kitchen a fresh new look.


Cabinet refacing replaces your cabinet skin panels to give your kitchen a makeover. You may just want a change or your cabinets may be scratched. Either way, refacing is a great way to go. To reface your cabinets, a professional will remove the doors and drawer fronts before applying a new veneer to the cabinet’s surface. Your cabinets’ hardware will also get replaced.
Now, you may be wondering about all refacing entails. Consider these pros and cons about cabinet refacing from South Hills’ Desirable Kitchen and Refacing.

Pro: Retains a Kitchen Layout

If your layout fulfills your needs for the room; how you move around when you cook, sit with your peers, or if there is enough storage space for food and utensils,  refacing is a good option.

Pro: Style Options

When refacing, you have varied veneer options for both natural woods and laminates. There is a wide pallete of refacing options for you to choose from.

Pro: Cost-Effective

You may be able to reface your kitchen for about half the cost of a full remodel.

Pro: Green Remodeling

Refacing is an environmentally friendly option as it eliminates the disposal of cabinet boxes into landfills. Also, through refacing, you save your cabinet boxes, so there is no need to build new ones.

Con: Cost Control

Generally, cabinet refacing is less expensive than a total cabinet makeover. However, the costs can add up, especially if you are replacing all the hinges and hardware.

Con: Potential Challenges

Replacing cabinet doors and fronts is relatively easy, refacing is a tougher skill that may be best left to a professional. If you are the smallest bit off, it will show.

Con: No Space Upgrade

If you are looking to expand your kitchen’s storage space, refacing may not be the best option for you as the cabinet-box interior, countertop space, and layout all remain the same.
