Kitchen cabinets play a prominent role in the look and feel of the busiest room in your home. Whether you’re considering kitchen cabinet refacing or new kitchen cabinets, Danville CA and Concord CA residents turn to the trusted craftspeople at Century Cabinets for all their cabinet and refacing needs.
Oftentimes, we find customers are not sure of the differences between refacing and replacing cabinets.
Here are some differences between cabinet refacing and cabinet replacing:
Cabinet refacing maintains your existing kitchen cabinets by refinishing or painting your current cabinets, adding a wood or plastic laminate veneer over exposed frames, or installing new door fronts. If veneer is the choice, drawer and door fronts are replaced to match while new molding, knobs, hinges and pulls complete the transformation.
Cabinet refacing is less expensive than cabinet replacement. Often the job takes far less time than building new cabinets, does not involve a tear-out of the existing cabinets and keeps your kitchen functioning during the project. Veneers are durable, especially plastic veneers, and come in a wide range of colors and styles.
If the existing cabinet boxes are structurally sound, refacing is a good choice. However, for those cabinets that have water damage or are warped or broken, replacement cabinets may be the best option.
What to know about choosing cabinets:
If you decide that new kitchen cabinets are the right choice, here are some things to consider:
Dark-colored woods (like cherry and mahogany) create a bolder, more furniture-like effect. Light-colored woods (like maple and oak) can make a kitchen look and feel larger and brighter.
