Replace or Reface Cabinets? Cost Considerations.

Refacing kitchen or bathroom cabinets costs considerably less than replacing them. Depending on the size of the kitchen and the materials you choose for refacing, you may spend between $3,000 and $12,000 (Savings of 50% or more). Even at the highest cost range, however, you would spend more than twice as much to replace the cabinets because there are several hidden costs that must be included in a full remodel. For example, if you get a quote on the cabinets, you must then add the cost of handles, molding, delivery charges, molding and trim, and refinishing any walls that are left exposed or damaged after the replacement.

General timeline for your kitchen remodeling project for cabinet refacing

The cabinet refacing process overall is a faster and simpler project to complete, generally with far fewer elements involved. However, larger or highly custom projects may take slightly longer than the estimated times provided here.

Design & Selections

The first step on your journey to a beautifully refaced kitchen is your first meeting with your Kitchen Solvers designer. Either in-home, or in the showroom, materials and selections will be discussed and chosen and your designer will begin to engineer your cabinet refacing project.

  • Initial design consultation: Initial cabinet measurements taken, selections discussed/decided.
  • Engineer your kitchen: Based upon the measurements taken of your existing cabinetry, your kitchen designer will set to work engineering measurements for your new cabinet doors, refacing materials, end-panels, and moldings.
  • Order materials: Once the engineering is completed, selections finalized, and everything is given another review for accuracy from your project manager, your materials will be put on order and your installation will be scheduled.

Project Planning

While your new cabinet doors are being crafted, depending on the scope of your project you may have some minor electrical or plumbing work done prior to your installation. Any other upgrades being done can also be completed in the time between ordering materials and installation.
