- No hidden plumbing or electrical costs and no need to redecorate or change the flooring.
- A wide variety of traditional and contemporary door styles and finishes to choose from.
- Decorative hardware, moulding and other accessories available for a fully customizable look.
- All cabinet installers are background checked, insured and licensed for a great service experience.

Doors are the most visible component of your cabinets and the key element in transforming the look of your kitchen. The Home Depot offers a large selection of doors for cabinet refacing, including the following:
The Thermo Collection consists of one-piece rigid engineered thermofoil doors, which are available in a large number of styles and in both solid and wood-grain finishes that can be mixed and matched to fit your remodelling needs. Doors come standard with a white back, but blended backs are also available for most Thermo colours.
The Prestige Collection includes five-piece engineered decorative cabinet doors. The door mouldings are wrapped in polyester or thermofoil and cut and assembled in a similar fashion as wood doors, giving them a real wood-grain appearance at a lower price point.
Stained Wood Collection
The Stained Wood Collection includes high-quality mitred mortise and tenon wood doors, which are available with solid or plywood panels in oak, maple and cherry. Six stains covering the light to dark colour spectrum are available in all three wood types.
