A cabinet refacing project can be a good opportunity to make a few changes in your kitchen, such as adding a few extra cabinets for some additional work or storage space. For example, it's easy to create a kitchen island with a few new base cabinets and a countertop. The type of refacing project you have planned can determine where to buy kitchen cabinets.
Where to Buy Kitchen Cabinets?
If you're using pre-finished doors and drawer fronts for your refacing project, you may want to purchase pre-finished cabinets to save a little work. Unfortunately, many cabinet parts companies who specialize in refacing supplies don't carry pre-finished cabinets, and cabinet manufacturers often use their own unique finishes. If you want a good match, you might want to buy your refacing supplies and pre-finished cabinets from a cabinet manufacturer who sells both.
A less expensive alternative would be to purchase cabinets that are unfinished or have an inexpensive finish. You can reface all cabinets at once to ensure a matching finish. You might even consider purchasing cabinets that have been installed but never used from home builders. Many builders change the cabinets out of their model homes on a regular basis and sell these cabinets for next to nothing.
A few suggestions on where to buy kitchen cabinets for your project:
A slightly used cabinet should fit right in with the rest of your gently used kitchen cabinets and they all should look new again after your refacing project.
