When updating a kitchen, you might think of a steep price tag to have your kitchen out of commission for several weeks while it is renovated. But did you know there is an option to update your kitchen that is less expensive and causes fewer inconveniences? Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of cabinet refacing.
Kitchen remodels can take anywhere from weeks to months, depending on your contractor’s schedule and how long it takes to receive materials and appliances. Cabinet refacing cuts this time down considerably, so you can have a fresh kitchen in a matter of days. The best part is your kitchen is still usable during the project.
What really sets cabinet refacing apart from a kitchen remodel is that there is less chaos. Kitchen remodeling involves removing cabinets completely, leaving your kitchen unusable. With refacing, only visible cabinet surfaces are replaced, such as drawer fronts and cabinet doors—however, small repairs can still be done to alter the layout and function of dated cabinets. During refacing, the rest of your kitchen is still accessible. There is also less stress because there is not nearly as much dust and noise in your home, which can disrupt your daily life.
When your countertops and appliances are in good condition, cabinet refacing is an incredibly cost-effective option for kitchen renovations. With refacing, only the cabinet doors, drawer fronts, hinges, and hardware are replaced. However, the impact on the appearance of your kitchen will be huge. You can completely transform the look of your space without the full cost of a kitchen remodel.
