The conundrum facing most homeowners that are considering redoing their kitchen is that traditional cabinet refacing materials lack the authentic look of the real thing. But recent advances in refacing technologies are starting to change all of that.

The first step in revitalizing an aging kitchen is to change the cabinets and hardware. Not only will the new look make you feel better about the heart of your home, but kitchen cabinet refacing will spill over into other areas and have your entire home looking great. The good news is that recent advancements in the kitchen refacing industry have created durable doors and hardware that look just like expensive materials. Not only are these refacing materials attractive and functional, but they will save you hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars.

Here are some of the more popular refacing choices.

  • Pressure Sensitive Adhesive (PSA). This self-adhering wood veneer refacing material features ‘peel and stick’ installation, solid wood sheet corners, and no messy clean-up. For those looking for texture, this is your choice.
  • Rigid Thermo Foil (RTF). This flexible and durable vinyl foil refacing laminate is situated on a durable substrate and features a state of the art laminating process for permanency. RTF is entirely customizable.

Kitchen Hardware Refacing

Pulls, hinges, and knobs. Oh my! New hardware puts the finishing touches on your kitchen refacing project. A variety of metals with endless finishing options allow you to personalize your kitchen right down to the very last detail. Mix and match for that eclectic, contemporary styling.

A new kitchen might require you to take out a loan to pay for it. With the latest in kitchen refacing technologies, you can do it for less.
