Refacing Cabinets vs. Replacement | Save Time and Money by doing this One!

Cabinet refacing and cabinet replacement are two very different things. There are many similarities and many differences. However, if someone walked into your kitchen after both were completed they would not be able to tell whether it was a replacement or a refacing.

In this article, we will explore the difference between cabinet refacing and cabinet replacement. We will determine which one of these saves you both time and money when it comes to your kitchen remodeling.

Cabinet Replacement

Replacing kitchen cabinets or replacing bathroom cabinets can be a costly endeavor. With replacement, everything is removed from your kitchen or bath including the base cabinets. Typically in a bathroom, the vanity cabinet is replaced and a new vanity is installed.

With a kitchen remodel, one of the benefits is that you can redo the layout of your kitchen. If you are unhappy with the flow or function of the kitchen you can rework the floor plan.

However, there is always a cost involved. Additional costs may include things like a designer and construction permits.  Architectural assistance may also be required to make sure that load-bearing walls are kept in place. Plumbing costs are also a consideration because a plumber may be needed to make sure that water supply lines are intact or relocated.

In replacing your kitchen cabinets, you can do things like replacing your sink and faucet, replace countertops, and also hardware. All of these things will give you a custom look and make your bathroom or kitchen even more beautiful.

Refacing Your Cabinets

Refacing your kitchen cabinets or re-facing your bathroom cabinets can save up to 50% of the cost of replacing them. Not only will it save you money but you will also save a considerable amount of time as well on the entire project. While cabinet refacing takes just about a week, cabinet replacement can take up to six weeks. If there are delays in production or permitting, it could be longer.

Although cabinet replacement has, for years, been seen as one of the best ways to get a new look for your kitchen, cabinet refacing can achieve almost identical results at a fraction of the price. Customizing countertops, sinks, faucets, hardware, cabinet doors and drawers, and shelving can give you a brand new kitchen. Combine those options with numerous finish choices and you have an infinite number of possibilities for your kitchen redesign.
