The cabinets in your kitchen are one of its most essential features. They provide both aesthetic value and functionality. Cabinets are one of the first things people look at when buying a home. Is there enough storage space? Are the cabinets in good shape? Do they look good? Cabinets can make or break a kitchen, so it's important they suit your needs.

Many home buyers will purchase a home and plan to renovate the kitchen to make it perfect. Others will pass on a house if the kitchen isn't just right.

There is an alternative to doing a full renovation. It's called cabinet refacing, and it can be the perfect solution to getting the kitchen cabinets you want without renovating.

Because the process uses your current cabinet boxes, replacing only doors and hardware, cabinet refacing allows you to have like-new cabinets at a more affordable cost without the extensive time it takes to tear everything out and replace it.

Is it worth it to reface kitchen cabinets?

The short answer is yes, but not all cabinets are suitable for refacing. Let's look at the difference between refacing and replacing cabinets, the pros and cons, and how to determine if refacing is the right choice for you.

Determining Factors for Refacing Cabinets
While cabinet refacing is an affordable alternative to fully renovating your cabinets, it isn't for everybody. Not all cabinets are good candidates for refacing.

There are a couple of reasons your cabinets might not be ideal for refacing. For instance, refacing isn't the best option if the cabinet boxes are in poor shape. Putting new faces on cabinets that are in bad shape only masks an underlying problem.

Worn-out cabinets, cabinets severely damaged by water or other means, or cabinets that don't provide adequate storage and functionality will need to be replaced through renovation. With its free in-home consultation, Cabinet Reface Direct can inspect your cabinets, advise you on their condition, and offer the best solution.

Another factor is storage space. Refacing won't fix cabinets that simply don't meet your storage needs. Renovation lets you start from scratch with cabinets that meet your storage needs.

If your cabinets are candidates for refacing, you're in luck. Refacing can be completed in a much shorter time frame and at a fraction of the cost compared to remodeling. That means you'll have less disruption to your daily life and will have access to your cabinets within days rather than weeks while incurring less expense.

Many factors affect the cost of cabinet refacing, such as the scope of work and the style and materials used, but refacing is about half the cost of installing new cabinets.

Best of all, if your cabinets are in good shape, refacing can extend their life by 20 to 30 years, which makes it an even greater value.

Considering the cost, time, and extended life, it's worth refacing kitchen cabinets instead of completely renovating, as long as your cabinet boxes are good candidates.

Refaced Cabinet Durability
Refaced cabinets can be as durable or even more durable and long-lasting than old, with most estimates ranging between 10 to 20 years.

A few factors determine how long refaced cabinets last, including the condition of your original cabinets, how much use your cabinets get, the quality of the material used for refacing, and the level of professionalism with which the cabinet refacing is performed.
