Cabinet Refacing vs. Cabinet Refinishing

Cabinet Refacing vs. Cabinet RefinishingSo, you’re planning on giving your cabinets some TLC? There are many ways to upgrade your cabinets. As you begin your research, you’re sure to come across these two popular remodeling options: cabinet refacing and cabinet refinishing. While both services focus on the cabinet doors and sound similar in nature, there are some big differences between the two! And in this article, we’re helping you tell the difference:

What is Cabinet Refacing?

The process of refacing your cabinets involves layering a new material onto your existing cabinet frames, replacing both the cabinet doors and drawer fronts. This service is a bit more involved than the typical refinishing process, and it’s ideal for homeowners who are looking for a way to upgrade their wood cabinets. For example, if you have dark wood cabinets and want a lighter stain, refacing will give you the surface you need to complete the lightening process. 

What is Cabinet Refinishing?

If you are only interested in making small cosmetic changes to your cabinets, refinishing the doors is the best service. When a contractor refinishes your cabinet doors, they focus on upgrading the finish and color of the existing cabinetry material. This could include sanding down the existing doors to remove nicks, patchy paint, etc.
