Cabinet Doors: Kitchen Cabinet Doors Make or Break Your Kitchen's Appearance

Your kitchen cabinet doors have gone from delighfully retro to just plain old. Reface and put the old charm back in your kitchen atmosphere.

As time takes its toll, kitchen cabinet doors can discolor and/or deteriorate. Upgrading your kitchen cabinet doors can be the remedy, as well as adding charm and warmth to your home.

Choices for Refacing Your Kitchen Cabinet Doors. There are several ways to reface your kitchen cabinet doors:

  • Cleaning and polishing can restore your kitchen cabinet doors' original beauty. Mild detergent and warm water can bring about a dramatic change. If using a commercial cleaner, make sure it won't harm the finish. Home Depot offers a service called NHance that involves cleaning or upgrading the color. They estimate the standard price for a 10 by10 kitchen is $1,113.
  • Repainting or resurfacing. When redoing paint or varnish, a reasonable ballpark estimate is $90-$110 per door when done by a professional. You can do it yourself for less but exercise caution when prepping the surfaces and applying the final finish.
  • Applying Rigid ThermoFoil (RTF), veneer, or other laminates to kitchen cabinet doors can be tricky. Not all doors lend themselves to this process. The cost can vary between $60-$400 per door depending on the quality and complexity of the job. DIY is possible but skill-demanding, so bids from at least three contractors can provide reliable alternatives.
  • Replacing the doors. This is a standard refacing practice. Care must be taken in matching the design and color of the existing cabinet background. Prices for new doors depend on the quality of the material used but range from $125-$325 per linear foot.
