Think a cabinet refacing project only means enhancing your kitchen's appearance? Think again.
Unlike kitchen cabinet refinishing or repainting, kitchen cabinet refacing gives you the options to choose additional accessories that can add storage, improve function, and create built-in organization.
Cabinet Refacing: The Benefits Over Refinishing or RepaintingDue to the high cost of replacement, many homeowners choose to resurface their kitchen cabinets. While either refinishing, repainting, and refacing will give your kitchen a fresh, new look, only a complete cabinet refacing job can also allow you to change the style and function of your kitchen cabinets and drawers. For about the same cost as refinishing or repainting, you'll not only gain a kitchen that feels brand new, but you'll also increase the value of your home.
Cabinet Refacing AccessoriesIn addition to giving you new hinges, knobs, and pulls, many kitchen cabinet refacing companies offer accessories that make your kitchen more user-friendly. You can add lazy Susans and corner systems, sliding shelves, trash and recycling organizers, spice racks, appliance garages, door and drawer organizers, and towel racks. In some cases you may even be able to add additional cabinet units to gain more storage space.
If you are looking for an affordable way to improve your kitchen's form and function, cabinet refacing could be the answer.
