Refacing Kitchen Cabinets: What Style Is For You?
When it comes to choosing from cabinet refacing styles for your kitchen, it’s a personal choice. Whether you’re into shaker-style, mid-century modern, contemporary or traditional kitchen cabinets, they’re all well-loved by designers. And if you’re looking for a seamless cabinet refacing option, inset cabinets may be an ideal choice.
Yes, there are many options, but we’ll expertly guide you through various refacing styles for your kitchen to help you choose the right one for you.
Your Cabinet Renovation: Reface or Replace?
You have two options for upgrading your kitchen cabinets: refacing the fronts, or completely replacing them. With replacing, all of your existing cabinets are removed, then new upper and lower cabinets are installed. Refacing doesn’t replace the entire cabinet, just the front (plus hardware and backsplash, if you choose).
Don’t like the look of your current kitchen? Is it far from the style of the rest of your home? Luckily, there are dozens of cabinet refacing styles to choose from. One of the best reasons to reface your cabinets is the ability to change the style of your existing cabinets to something fresh and new — without completely removing the entire cabinet.
Some of the most popular cabinet refacing styles right now are flat-front cabinets (also called slab doors), shaker cabinets, and raised panel cabinets. If you want to jump on current trends, choose cabinets in bold colors or deep stains like walnut, and ditch the hardware for an ultra-modern look.
No matter which cabinet refacing style you choose, you’re going to love the finished product.
With refacing, you keep your existing kitchen cabinet frames intact. Your kitchen is given an updated look by either adding a laminated veneer to your cabinets or replacing cabinet fronts.
Because refacing involves using the frame of your existing cabinets, they must be in decent condition. Minor wear and tear are expected, but if the frames have water damage, deep cracks, or termite damage, you’ll need to install all new cabinets.
