Is your kitchen in need of a makeover, but you don’t have the time or the budget to completely renovate your kitchen? No problem. In the world of kitchen cabinetry, you have two less expensive, less time-consuming, but just as appealing options—refacing and refinishing. But what is the difference between the two and which one makes more sense for your home?
Let’s first discuss what each entails. Kitchen cabinet refacing, a popular choice for homeowner’s today, entails the removal of existing drawer faces and doors and installation of new ones. With refacing, your existing cabinet boxes remain intact and veneer is added to them. This option is considered a close substitute to cabinet replacing, but does not have the hefty price tag nor does it involve a complete removal of old cabinets and replacement of new ones.
With kitchen cabinet refinishing, there is no removal of any existing kitchen cabinetry. The process involves either sanding or chemically stripping the existing finish from the cabinets and refinishing them with new paint or stain. Cabinet refinishing only works on wood cabinets.
