If you want to update your
kitchen, cabinet refacing can
save you thousands.

In most cases, we can expertly reface your existing cabinets and no one but you will know they’re not new! And that’s not the only benefit to refacing kitchen cabinets instead of buying new.

Benefits of Kitchen Cabinet Refacing

  • It’s fast! You can start using your kitchen in just a few days and the whole job can usually be done in about a week.
  • You won’t have tradespeople going in and out of your home for 3 to 4 weeks.
  • There’s no need to change or repair flooring, drywall, tile-work, or wall / ceiling paint.
  • You won’t need to get plumbing and electrical work done. This is often required with a complete kitchen renovation.
  • It doesn’t leave any wall damage that would have to be repaired.
  • You can keep your existing countertops.
  • There’s less mess and disruption for you and your family while the work is being done.
  • You can use custom colours that many store-bought kitchens don’t offer. (We are, after all, interior painting and staining experts. You might as well benefit from that!)

Refacing Cost

How much can you save if you go for kitchen cabinet refacing over buying new kitchen cabinets?

The cost of new kitchen cabinets depends on a number of factors: whether they’re store-bought or custom-made, size of kitchen, choice of door and drawer front materials, and the number of accessories. On top of the price of the cabinets, there is the installation cost, which can be as much as or even more than the cabinets.

To give you a general idea of the savings, let’s say a new kitchen, installed, is $40,000. It’s possible that refacing could be done for about 25% of the cost, or about $10,000. Think of what you can do with the money you save—like taking a nice vacation or two!

When Is Cabinet Refacing a Good Option?

If your kitchen cabinet framework is in good condition, refacing and adding other enhancements can give you the look and functionality of a new kitchen. The framework stays while the fronts and hardware are replaced.

Our customers choose cabinet refacing when they want a different style of door to modernize the kitchen or when they want to lighten up cabinets that have a dark stain. It’s a cost-effective, relatively easy way to freshen up your home and make it more comfortable for you and your family.

When you choose refacing, you have a lot of flexibility in terms of what your kitchen will look like. Our kitchen cabinet building and alteration specialist has years of experience and works closely with you to help you bring your vision to life.


Our process includes removing the cabinet doors, which we take to our spray shop. The spray shop allows us to spray the doors in controlled conditions to get the best finish possible.

For the rest of the kitchen cabinets, we set up a temporary spray booth around the cabinetry. This allows us to spray the cabinets without getting stain or paint on anything else. We use paper and plastic to completely protect your countertops and backsplash. We also use a portable on-site exhaust to create a negative pressure booth. This helps eliminate fumes and atomized paint inside the on-site booth and stops anything from escaping.

The shell/bones, doors, and drawers all get filled where needed, sanded, and degreased before any spray work is done. We do everything required for kitchen cabinet resurfacing, like installing soft-close hinges, replacing glass doors, replacing handles/pulls, and making minor alterations to cabinets.
