Cabinet Refacing Cost

If your kitchen is starting to look a little worn, but you can't afford to replace it, it's a good idea to estimate the kitchen cabinet refacing cost. Replacing the cabinet doors is significantly cheaper than a new kitchen while still giving you the look of a brand new kitchen. Even if you can afford to replace the cabinets, there's little point if you are happy with the design of your kitchen but just want a new look. As long as the frames are in good condition, you can invest in some new doors and use that savings towards another purchase.

Refacing your kitchen cabinets includes covering the exposed frames with a thin veneer of real wood or plastic laminate. Doors and drawer fronts are replaced to match or compliment the new veneer. New hinges, knobs, pulls, and molding will complete the transformation. Your cabinet refacing project is often completed within 2 to 4 days. There is little disruption to your daily routine, with dust and dirt being kept to a minimum

 

What Are the Pros and Cons?

Kitchen cabinet refacing pros:

· Costs about half as much as replacing cabinets.

· Takes less time (2 to 4 days) and money.

· It’s less hassle than tearing out cabinets.

· You can still use your kitchen while refacing.

· It’s a green kitchen remodeling solution.

Opt to reface instead of replace tired kitchen cabinets, and you'll save money, time, and the environment.


Kitchen cabinet refacing cons (honestly there aren’t many):

· Refacing won’t fix a bad kitchen design.

· You might be tempted to spend more on exotic veneer and hardware (saving you less).

Refaing consists of removing all doors, drawer fronts and hardware; install veneer on the remaining bases; then add new matching doors, drawer fronts and hardware. A typical cabinet refacing job takes two to four days, although a simple project can be done in a single day, and more complex ones will take longer than four days. The least expensive veneer option is RTF, which is exceedingly durable, easy to clean, comes in a wide variety of styles and can be made to look like a painted surface or wood. Plastic laminates are slightly more expensive and come in more colors but aren't as durable. Wood veneers which are the most expensive option -- usually costing about 25 percent more than laminates.

Reface or Replace?

When does it make sense to reface instead of replace? If you have no plans to remodel your kitchen, are happy with its layout, and your cabinet boxes are structurally sound, refacing is a good option. But, when you have a kitchen remodel on tap and/or your kitchen cabinets are inexpensive, poorly constructed, or damaged, refacing is not a cost-effective option.


Payback by the Project
Since the mid-1980s, Remodeling magazine has done an annual analysis of cost versus value for residential remodeling projects around the country. By polling real estate agents and appraisers in various regions, the editors determine about how much projects cost to complete and how much those improvements might add to a house's selling price one year later. The report is widely considered the most authoritative study of the subject.

Americans will spend over $295 Billion on kitchen renovations this year. For homeowners that spend less than $15,000 on their kitchen, they can expect to see a return of 99% on their investment. With those kind of numbers, there is no other room in your house where you could expect to see the same kind of return on your investment. Kitchen Renovations account for 70% of the home improvement projects, and that is for a reason. By Refacing your cabinets, you can not only change the look of your kitchen, but also increase the value of your home.
