Kitchen Cabinet Refacing

Is It Worth It To Reface My Kitchen Cabinets?

The kitchen is the most communal room in your home. It can be a place where you and your family gather to play games, eat meals, or have important talks. When you throw a party, the kitchen is often the place where everyone congregates.

And every so often, you’ll want to give this most important room a new look, perhaps by refacing your kitchen cabinets.

But is kitchen cabinet refacing worth it?

To answer that question, Let’s Face It Inc. typically has its customers to ask themselves a few more questions:

  • Do you want to keep the footprint and layout of your existing kitchen?
  • Do you want to preserve a certain element of your kitchen? (The floor you had installed last year, or the granite countertop that took forever to find.)
  • Are you on a tighter budget, but still want your cabinets to look nice?
  • Are your cabinets still in good, solid condition?

If you said “yes” to any of those questions, then kitchen cabinet refacing makes sense.

Let’s Face It transforms your kitchen

At Let’s Face It, we transform your kitchen using wood doors and drawer fronts made by Pennsylvania Dutch cabinet craftsmen.

If you decide to work with us, we’ll tailor your project to your aesthetic and budget considerations. Typically, the cost of kitchen cabinet refacing is under $10,000 for an average premium wood kitchen.

We work with everything from exotic hardwoods with hand-rubbed artisan finishes to thermofoil products for more budget-conscious homeowners.

Pick a material that works for you while choosing to preserve your existing countertop, floor, or backsplash. You can have any color, look, or feature you want. We use only the finest real hardwoods. Our doors and drawers come with self-closing, fully concealed hinges that will never come apart.

At the start of the project, one of our certified engineers will measure your kitchen to ensure you have the right fit and finish. We’ll remove your doors and drawers and replace them with ones that are handcrafted in our studio in Lancaster.

When the installation is finished, one of our managers will inspect the work to ensure that it meets our standards.

If you’ve chosen thermofoil for your cabinets, we’ll reface them with a thermally-fused membrane made from a moisture-resistant vinyl that gets heat shrunk to the wood material underneath. This vinyl comes in almost any color or wood pattern.

What are the benefits of kitchen cabinet refacing?

1. It’s more convenient than a major kitchen renovation

When you have your kitchen renovated, you may not be able to use that space while the project is underway. When you have your kitchen cabinets refaced, your kitchen remains in working order. You’ll still be able to use/eat in your kitchen while the project is underway. You’ll have less dust and mess to deal with because most of the work will be done outdoors or off-site

2. It will save you money

The cost of refacing kitchen cabinets is considerably less than the cost of replacing them. New cabinets can take up as much as half of your budget for a remodeling project.

3. You’ll have many attractive choices

With the number of materials and stains available to you when you reface your kitchen cabinets, you’ll have a chance to express your individual tastes, whether it’s for traditional or modern kitchen decor.

4.  You’ll increase the value of your home

Updating your kitchen’s look can add to the value of your home. But spending too much on the project will mean you won’t be able to recoup that money when you sell. By refacing your cabinets, you’ll be making your kitchen – and thus the rest of your home – more attractive to potential buyers without spending too much.
