Cabinet refacing is basically a replacement of the “skin” of the cabinet. It is achieved by replacing the doors and drawer fronts and applying a new veneer over the existing surface of the cabinet body. Hardware such as the hinges, handles, and drawer pulls are usually also replaced during the process.
We remove the cabinet doors, take out the drawers and replace the front of the drawers (the rest of the drawers boxes remain intact). The front and side portions of the cabinet boxes are covered, either with natural wood veneer or RTF (Rigid Thermofoil), a melamine-based product. If necessary, new door hinges are added. Hinges in good condition can be reused if they are not visible or fit the style of the new look you want. We then install new doors and drawer fronts. New handles, drawer pulls, and other types of fixtures are usually installed but existing hardware can also be reused if they are in good shape and comply with the new look. We can also install optional accessories, such as crown molding, glass panels, lighting, or storage accessories. We usually require two to four days to perform this service, depending on the size of your kitchen.
