KITCHEN CABINET REFACING
Many of today’s homeowners prefer kitchen cabinet refacing instead of completely replacing their kitchen cabinets. Many of our customers don’t have the time and often don’t wish to make such a large investment in their kitchen. It’s a good idea to decide on the scope and magnitude of the update you want. There’s no sense in doing a complete makeover if you’re happy with the layout of your existing kitchen and quality of the existing cabinet box frames.
The Cabinet Refacing Process:
- Remove and dispose of your old cabinet doors and drawer fronts
- Install new doors, drawer fronts, hinges, and handles in the style and color of your choice
- Cover your existing cabinet box frames with new wood panels, veneers or lacquer finish.
- Install new countertops and backsplash
- We can also add any custom carpentry to the existing kitchen such as:
- Extending the upper cabinets to the ceiling
- Adding additional cabinets to the existing kitchen layout
- New custom islands
- Wine racks
- Decorative Mouldings
KITCHEN REFACING CABINET STYLES & FINISHES
Cabinet Doors – Our kitchen cabinet doors and drawer fronts are 100% custom built to your exact specifications. Reborn Kitchens offers over 2,000 variations of cabinet door styles and can color match any stain or solid color in our spray shop facility.
Solid Color Doors - Maple and MDF cabinet doors & drawers are most commonly used when we are finishing them with solid colors such as off-whites, greys, dark browns etc. Since you cannot see the grain in the door once the solid color finish has been applied, there is no need to use more expensive cabinet door wood types such as cherry or walnut. We can color match any physical sample piece you have or any color you select from a paint supplier.
Stained Doors – When staining new cabinet doors and drawer fronts, it’s important to consider the type of grain patter you want to see, each wood species has its own grain pattern and fingerprint. Some wood types also are natural darker in nature such as a walnut compared to a maple door. No matter what stain finish you have in mind, we can deliver it with our custom finishing shop.
Thermofoil or Polyester – These types of cabinet doors are laminate/polyester which comes in either solid colors or in finishes that look like wood with stain. A benefit to using these products when refacing is they eliminate the need to have any onsite spraying done because they already come pre-finished from the cabinet supplier. The drawback is they can never be refinished to another color or stain down the road and if a cabinet door gets scratched or damaged, the entire door will need to be replaced if the supplier still stocks that particular type of door.
