Find answers to some of the most common questions about cabinet refacing and the Renuit Refacing process.

General Cabinet Refacing Questions

Many people turn to cabinet Refacing when they'd like to update their kitchen, but don’t want to manage a total renovation. When you Reface your kitchen cabinets, you keep your existing cabinet boxes but upgrade the doors, drawer fronts, exterior surfaces and hardware with a brand new colour and style. Accessories like mouldings and a new countertop are finishing touches that can be added to complete the new look. With Refacing you can give your kitchen a facelift with minimal interruption to your busy life.

Renuit Refacing projects generally cost a fraction of the cost of a standard kitchen renovation completed by a licensed private contractor. Keep in mind that the cost of your cabinet Refacing project will vary depending on the size and scope of your project. The best way to get an accurate estimate is to schedule a free virtual or in-home consultation and we’ll provide a project estimate that is specific to your kitchen & vision.

If you like the existing layout of your kitchen and your existing cabinets are structurally sound and in good condition, then Refacing may be a good option for your kitchen. We’ll replace your outdated doors with new, trending styles.

We can provide new boxes and accessories as needed in your project.
