If your cabinets have seen better days, updating them can give your kitchen a whole new look. To determine if you want to transform your cabinets with a facelift or replace them altogether, compare the advantages and disadvantages of refacing.
What is Refacing?
Refacing your kitchen cabinets entails keeping your existing cabinets and simply freshening them up. This is accomplished by removing the old fronts from the cabinets to expose the framework, which is then refaced with a veneer made from real wood, Rigid Thermofoil (RTF) or plastic laminate. New knobs, pulls, hinges and molding are installed on the cabinets at the time of refacing.
