If your cabinets are outdated and you’d like to rejuvenate your kitchen or other living spaces, CPOS Refacing offers an exciting solution. Cabinet refacing is an opportunity to reimagine your existing cabinets in a modern style that you’ll love, and not having to install new cabinets results in your expenses and time to complete the project being much lower. Many homeowners have trusted CPOS Refacing to help them realize their dream homes, and we’d be happy to provide you with a free in-home design consultation and answer any questions you may have regarding refacing vs refinishing cabinets.
What Is Cabinet Refacing?
Cabinet refacing is a process through which we use to give cabinets a visually & functionally pleasing makeover. By selecting a brand-new, factory-finished cabinet door & drawer front, you have the option to not only change the color but also update the style of your cabinetry as well. You can choose from our wide variety of profiles and colors for your kitchen refacing project, or even use a custom color of your choosing. With the new factory-finished material being installed we can ensure the color is consistent and accurate throughout all elements of your cabinets so that the installation is seamless. New concealed soft close hinges & soft close dovetail drawer boxes make the kitchen not only look like new but also function like brand new cabinetry. We even incorporate new knobs and pulls of your choosing to finish off your cabinet refacing project.
What Is Cabinet Refinishing?
Refinishing is a process through which you only update the color or finish of your existing cabinets. At CPOS, we do not provide refinishing services. That said, the process typically involves stripping the existing finish using a chemical remover or sanding, or a combination of both methods. Once that prep is complete, the new stain or paint of your choice is applied. Your cabinets will retain the same profile and it can be difficult to go from a dark finish to a lighter appearance while retaining the wood grain.
Refacing vs Replacing Cabinets
Refacing cabinets is a popular alternative to cabinet replacement because it is less expensive and time intensive. The main difference when considering refacing vs refinishing or replacing is that refacing involves putting new material on the cabinets to create a new look whereas refinishing is essentially just paint and replacing is quite an undertaking and investment. Virtually all cabinets can be refaced, and refacing gives you more options.
How Materials Matter
Another point to consider when thinking about refacing your cabinets is the cabinet material. At CPOS we work with all wood materials whereas other cabinet refinishers may use plastic laminate or vinyl thermofoil. By using wood veneers and custom-cut wood to reface your cabinet doors and drawer fronts, we retain the elegant look of quality carpentry. We’ll never simply strip and stain or paint your cabinets so you will know you have a quality, American-made finished product in your home.
Reasons to Reface Your Kitchen
A new and more modern style for your cabinets is an effective way of transforming your kitchen, which is among one of the most important rooms in your home. Refacing is an ideal choice for homeowners who like their existing kitchen layout but want a new style. It’s not only an affordable choice, but also an environmentally friendly one as you’ll continue to use the same cabinet materials. Refacing is also an excellent option for people selling their homes as it lets you modernize the space with minimal investment.
The Advantages of Refacing Cabinets
Perhaps the best reason to choose refacing vs refinishing cabinets is that refacing gives you the ability to change the look of your cabinets at an affordable price that paint alone simply can’t do. Refacing projects are usually completed in your home between 3 to 5 days and involve the installation of new wood doors that can totally revamp the look of your kitchen.
