What is Cabinet Refacing?

Cabinet refacing, unlike a full cabinet remodel, leaves the original structure of the cabinet box intact. The full process involves replacing all old cabinet doors and drawer fronts, hinges, mouldings and covering the exterior boxes with a ¼ inch wood skin. Some spaces in the cabinet box can be modified during this process. Cabinet refacing is the ideal choice if you are already happy with the layout of your kitchen and will dramatically cut down on cost.

Should I just get all new cabinets?

Replacing cabinets entirely can cost up to 50% more than refacing alone. The costs of rewiring electrical connections, replacing flooring, painting, countertops, and other possibly unforeseen obstacles can make a project become expensive quickly. If you are happy with the layout of your kitchen, cabinet refacing is the better choice to create your dream cooking space, master bath, mantle, or other custom cabinet project.

What if I want to increase my kitchen size/footprint?

Cabinet Cures now offers custom cabinets: all the same great finish options you have come to expect from Cabinet Cures now with endless design possibilities. With custom cabinets alongside cabinet refacing, you can easily increase cabinet size with our custom cabinets. Any new cabinet boxes added will blend in perfectly alongside the cabinets you already have once the reface is complete.

How long does it take to complete a cabinet refacing project?

Most projects are completed within 3 to 5 days.

After receiving a bid from an dealer, you will be helped with choosing your new door style, wood species, and color. Measurements are then made, a custom order that is tailor fit for your project is placed by the dealer to be manufactured in our facility, and once completed sent back to be installed in your kitchen.

What materials are the cabinet doors made of?

Cabinet Cures only uses solid wood for all of our cabinet doors in a variety of wood species, cabinet faces, and colors.

How many colors can I choose from?

You can choose from over 35 colors using the proprietary finish system, and other finishes. Cabinet Cures never uses paints to finish the cabinet doors as it does not hold up long term.

How are the new sides applied?

Cabinet Cures produces ¼ inch wood facing material for the cabinet boxes that match the doors in style and color. All of the materials are applied with pin nails and a wood glue to ensure that your finished look is not only breathtaking, but also built to last.

Do you ever use veneers on the exterior of the cabinets?

Cabinet Cures does not use veneers on cabinet exteriors because they tend to bubble and chip over time. We only reface cabinet boxes with the ¼ inch wood facing material.

What is a corbel?

A corbel is a decorative wall bracket designed to support a shelf or countertop overhang.

What is a distressed look?

Distressing is a popular technique that can be applied to cabinets to give them a rugged and antiquated look.

How long will the refaced cabinets last?

With proper care, the cabinet reface will last decades. Cabinet Cures Products pride ourselves in the quality of the doors, drawers, hardware, and in-house craftsmanship. Each finished product meets the same high quality standards and comes with Cabinet Cures’ 5-year warranty.
