Cabinet Refacing

Remodel Your Kitchen Without a Major Renovation

Cabinet refacing is a cost-effective way to give your kitchen a whole new look by replacing cabinet door and drawer fronts and veneering the exterior of the cabinet boxes.

Your kitchen layout stays the same and the existing cabinets remain in place, so you avoid the inconveniences of a major renovation while still getting a noticeable return on investment.

Enhancements like glass doors, light valances, crown moulding, new hardware and other accessories can easily be added for a more customized look.
