Cabinets: To Replace or Reface?

Tips for whether to replace or reface your cabinets

When looking for new kitchen cabinets, one of the biggest choices is whether to replace or reface.

  • Replacing means completely removing the cabinets, fronts, and boxes and replacing them with brand new cabinets.
  • Refacing (also called refinishing) means using the existing boxes and replacing just the cabinet fronts.

Refacing your cabinets may be an option if:

  • Your budget is limited.
  • You’re generally satisfied with the size, type, and location of your cabinets.
  • Your cabinets have a dated style.
  • Your cabinets have non-working elements, such as hinges or slides.
  • You want to improve the value of your home at a minimal cost.
