Pros & Cons of Cabinet Refacing

Add New Life to Your Kitchen

The holiday season is often centered on family, friends and FOOD. Increased family hours typically coincide with more hours logged in the kitchen. While visiting the homes of our friends and relatives, we often are left admiring certain aesthetics and features of our host’s kitchens. Do you find yourself asking, what can we do to get a kitchen like that?

If a full kitchen remodel isn’t in your budget right now, we have another solution for you – cabinet refacing. Refacing your existing cabinetry, can give your kitchen that much needed facelift you were looking for. Painted cabinets can now become oak! Oak cabinets can now become cherry! As you can see the possibilities are truly endless. In a matter of only days we can add an exciting, new appearance to any kitchen (or bathroom, or office, or anywhere your cabinets need refreshing).

Keep reading to learn more about the pro’s and con’s of cabinet refacing versus replacing.
