When is Cabinet Refacing the Right Choice For You?

✔  You’re happy with your existing kitchen layout.

Kitchen Cabinet Refacing Before & After | The Home Depot Canada

Transform your Kitchen On a Budget

  • Refacing kitchen cabinets can be a less costly alternative to a complete kitchen renovation because it requires less materials. 
  • Since no alterations to your existing kitchen layout are required, cabinet refacing significantly reduces the cost of materials as well as labour.
  • Cabinet resurfacing is also less time consuming than a full kitchen renovation, which further reduces the cost of your project.

Kitchen Cabinet Refacing or Cabinet Refinishing: Which Should I Choose?

Aside from both offering a refreshed new look for your kitchen, kitchen cabinet refinishing and refacing give you completely different options for your kitchen cabinet makeover project.

Kitchen Cabinet Refinishing
