Cabinet Refacing Timeline

If you’re looking into a home renovation project that delivers the most bang for your buck, you might want to consider cabinet refacing. Because the kitchen is an integral part of your home, major renovations can be a significant time commitment and costly process that can take days to weeks to complete. That’s a lot to ask of a busy family who spends mornings eating breakfast together and evenings enjoying each other’s company around the dinner table. Fortunately, there is an affordable alternative that doesn’t involve your kitchen being out of commission for weeks at a time; cabinet refacing! 

How Long Does it Take to Upgrade Kitchen Cabinets?

During a cabinet refacing, only your cabinet doors and drawer fronts are replaced, usually with a veneer or coating, and the cabinet boxes are left intact, giving your kitchen a completely new look. While completely replacing your kitchen cabinets is a lengthy process, cabinet refacing is a quick project that can be completed in less than a week. Below we highlight several factors to consider when choosing to reface your cabinets.   

Factors Affecting Your Cabinet Refacing Timeline

Kitchen cabinet refacing can be completed much faster than a full kitchen renovation. However, there are several factors you should consider to determine your exact timeline. Typical time frames usually depend on: 

  • The size and number of cabinets you have – During the refacing process, your old cabinets are stripped of their skins, and new doors and drawer fronts are installed with a coating over the cabinet boxes. Therefore, the number of cabinets, size of your kitchen, and overall complexity of its layout determine how long this project will take. For a smaller kitchen with fewer cabinets, refacing can be completed in as little as two days. For a larger cabinet refacing project, expect it to take anywhere from four days to a week. 
  • The company you hire to install the cabinets – Not all cabinet refacing companies are the same. When you upgrade kitchen cabinets with Let’s Face It, you receive fast, affordable, and designer-quality work.
