What is cabinet refacing?

Refacing is a cost-effective way to give your kitchen or bathroom an entirely fresh aesthetic. By covering existing cabinets with veneer and replacing the doors, drawer fronts, and molding, you can cut the price of your remodel by as much as 30-50%. Cabinet refacing is a great way to remodel your kitchen without having to remove the countertops and risk cracking granite or quartz. But cabinet refacing isn’t only about saving money – it’s also about saving time. Nothing grinds the ebb and flow of a home to a halt quite like a long, invasive kitchen remodeling project. Not only does cabinet refacing make for a speedier remodel, but it allows you to retain the function of your sinks and counter space throughout. Finally, cabinet refacing saves the planet! Recycling and reusing are some of the most important ways we can help our environment, and refacing by its very nature cuts down on the costs of materials and transportation.

Cabinet Refacing Ideas for the Environmentalist

  • Experiment with water-based finishes. If you or a client have decided on wood species like cherry, maple, or alder, water-based finishes are typically recommended as the ideal choice for the cabinet boxes. Not only do their pure colors retain the appeal of a regular finished look, but water-based finishes protect indoor air quality because they emit no volatile organic compounds.
  • Remember NAUF wood. When choosing wood for your cabinet, reach for the “No Added Urea Formaldehyde” (NAUF) variety. These are readily available in the US.
  • Use veneered doors. With only 1/40 inch thickness and a NAUF core, veneered doors are a great option for the eco-conscious homeowner. Ask your Kitchen Solvers consultant how to get a wood shine!
