Cabinets are a big part of your home, whether in the kitchen, bathroom, or any other room. They are important for two reasons: functionality and aesthetics.

When homebuyers, the cabinets in the kitchen and bathroom are often one of the first things they look at. Do the cabinets meet their storage needs, and are they attractive?

On the other side of the coin, if you're selling your home, having cabinets that look great and provide plenty of convenient storage space might be what "sells" your home.

Many people don't know that cabinet refacing is a cost-effective alternative to complete cabinet replacement. The two terms are often used interchangeably, but there is a difference.

In this blog, we'll address some frequently asked questions about cabinet refacing.

What's the difference between replacing and refacing cabinets?
Replacing cabinets involves tearing them out and replacing them with new ones. The process takes several weeks and disrupts your daily life because you won't have access to your kitchen, bathroom, or any room where your cabinets are being replaced.

Refacing cabinets, on the other hand, lets you keep the bulk of your original cabinets and replace only the doors, drawers, and hardware. Refacing takes less time than replacing cabinets, doesn't disrupt your routine, and saves money.

Can all cabinets be refaced?
Unfortunately, not all cabinets are good candidates for refacing. If the underlying structure (your current cabinets) is made cheaply or in bad condition, refacing your cabinets isn't the answer. It will improve the appearance, but what's underneath will still be cheaply made or in bad condition. In these cases, a reputable cabinet reface company would recommend you have your cabinets replaced.

Refacing is the best option if your cabinets are in good shape and you want to change their appearance. Even if you want to add to or change storage layout, refacing might be your best approach. A good cabinet refacing company can help you decide.

Is cabinet refacing eco-friendly?
While cabinet refacing isn't often marketed as an eco-friendly option, it does help in some ways by default. When you replace cabinets entirely, all of the materials go straight to the dump. With cabinet refacing, since you're using the bulk of your cabinets, there's less to throw away. That means that cabinet refacing is an eco-friendly approach by default.

Does cabinet refacing add value to your home?
Yes, refacing cabinets can add value to your home, and in many cases, having your cabinets refaced is a great way to interest buyers. As we mentioned earlier, cabinets in your home are often a focal point. They are the first thing many homebuyers look at, so ugly cabinets are not likely to help make selling your home easier, especially if the prospective buyer is factoring in the cost of replacing the cabinets if they buy your house.

Does cabinet refacing offer style and color selection?
Cabinet refacing is available in various styles, including the most popular shaker, slab, and raised panel. Additionally, there are many different colors and textural options. This allows consumers to customize their cabinets to fit their needs and tastes.

How Long Does Refacing Take?
Besides the cost, one of the best things about cabinet refacing is the convenience. Having your cabinets refaced takes a few days as opposed to the weeks it takes to have cabinets removed and new ones installed. You can even still use your cabinets while they're being replaced, and you don't need to worry about major disruption to your daily routine.
