Reasons Not to DIY Cabinet Refacing

Remodeled kitchen with gorgeous cabinetsIf you’re looking to redesign your kitchen cabinets on a budget, consider having them refaced. Kitchen cabinet refacing consists of replacing your kitchen cabinet’s doors and the veneer around them. Cabinet refacing can completely transform the style of your kitchen without breaking the bank or taking weeks to complete. While this can be done as a DIY project, there are many reasons why you should consider hiring a professional contractor.

Problems With DIY Cabinet Refacing

There are multiple problems you can run into while completing your DIY kitchen cabinet refacing project. Some of the most common issues homeowners encounter include: 

Tools & Techniques

Without the proper tools and techniques, you can easily damage your kitchen cabinets while trying to dismantle your old doors and install your new ones.


If you don’t measure your cabinets correctly, you may not order the correct size doors to replace your old ones. If the sizing is off by even a tiny bit, it can make your cabinets look uneven or have gaps.


Trying to find the perfect material to match your existing cabinets is trickier than it looks. While purchasing materials online, the doors and veneer may look right but then in person may look completely wrong. Another problem is not ordering enough veneer to cover the edges of your cabinets. If you don’t have enough materials, you won’t be able to finish your cabinet refacing project and may need to additional purchases.
