Is Cabinet Refacing Worth It?
Reader John T. of Beverly, MA, writes: "I talked to my friends and neighbors and some people say cabinet refacing is substandard and others say they're happy with it. Is cabinet refacing worth it?"
All About Cabinet Refacing
John, as blues legend Jimmie Lunceford said, "It ain't what you do, but the way that you do it." Cabinet refacing is a generic term, and covers a multitude of methods.
You should not consider cabinet refacing if you are unhappy with the layout of your kitchen, or if you need to increase the amount of storage drastically. But if you are happy with how your kitchen works, you might consider cabinet refacing as a money-saving alternative to a full kitchen renovation. Cabinet refacing can save about half of what new custom cabinets will cost.
But there's cabinet refacing, and then there's cabinet refacing. Some companies will be happy to glue new laminate or veneer to your existing cabinets and call it refacing. When the laminate or the veneer comes loose, they're gone.
Kitchen Magic replaces your doors and drawers with new ones, including new hardware, from our selection of over 300 style and color selections. We offer an exclusive permanent double lamination process, in which thin wood substrate is bonded to the existing visible cabinet surfaces. All exterior cabinet surfaces are then covered with the final layer of laminate or natural wood refacing materials. The result is a stronger cabinet that looks brand new.
And because we are also a custom cabinet shop, if one of your cabinets is too far gone to reface, we can replace it with one that matches. Or we can add a cabinet that matches if one is needed.
And we back up our work with our Lifetime of Home Ownership Warranty. We guarantee you'll be happy with our work and the result.
