If you need to update your kitchen’s appearance, one of the first things that homeowners elect to change is their kitchen cabinets. Your cabinets comprise one of the largest sections of your kitchen, and their style largely determines the atmosphere of the room. If you’re remodeling your home’s kitchen and you don’t want to replace your entire kitchen cabinets, another option to consider is refacing your cabinets. Refacing your kitchen cabinet is achieved by using a small veneer or piece of wood which is fitted over your current cabinets, giving them a newer looking exterior. If you’re curious about why you might choose to reface your cabinets rather than replace them, keep reading below to learn about the benefits of refacing your cabinets.


The first reason that homeowners often choose to reface their cabinets is that it is far less expensive than installing brand new kitchen cabinets. If you’re trying to save a bit of money on your kitchen remodel but you’re still trying to create a new aesthetic, refacing your cabinets is one of the best ways to do so. It typically costs about half of what it does to replace them, so if you’re remodeling on a budget, refacing your cabinets is one of the best ways to cut costs.

Faster Process

Another reason to reface rather than install new cabinets is that it takes far less time. If you’re trying to complete your remodeling project in a timely manner, refacing your cabinets is often a better option than trying to install brand new cabinets. Even if you elect to order them stock rather than custom, it will still take at least a couple of weeks for your contractor to receive them, and then an additional couple of weeks to complete the installation!

Protect Your Countertops

Finally, if you have beautiful granite or quartz countertops, they can easily become damaged from installing new kitchen cabinets. If you’re trying to protect your cabinets during a remodel, refacing rather than replacing is far less likely to cause damage to your countertops. Don’t risk damaging one of the biggest investments in your kitchen from replacing your cabinets. Simply reface them to reduce the risk of damaging them!
