Refacing Kitchen Cabinets
You can give your kitchen a whole new look without having to replace all of your cabinetry. As long as your cabinets are in good shape, built strong and you like the layout of your kitchen, you can choose an easier and far less expensive option: refacing your kitchen cabinets.
Cabinet refacing is when you keep all of your existing cabinet boxes but replace the cabinet doors and drawer fronts. In many cases, older cabinets built 20 or 30 years ago were more solidly constructed than some newer, modular pre-built cabinets you find today. Refacing allows you to change the style, colour and even the material of your cabinet faces and produces an entirely new looking kitchen. It doesn’t make financial sense to start from scratch if you don’t have to.
Reface Your Cabinets
If you choose to reface your kitchen cabinets, exposed side panels, mouldings and face frames… will be replaced as well to match your cabinet doors. The toe kick is replaced and new panels are used to trim exposed undersides of the upper cabinets to give them a matching finish. Once the doors and drawer fronts are installed on the original cabinet boxes, new hardware is mounted to complete the job.
A cabinet refacing company in Edmonton will have a large selection of cabinet doors, cabinet components, hardware and other accessories. They have a large range of colours and combinations to choose from. You can do the work yourself and save the labour expense or hire an expert craftsman to take care of the remodel.

If you want to add cabinets to the layout, they can help you choose and install and finish these units so they match the rest of your cabinetry. Other options include kitchen islands, built-in wine racks, pull-out garbage bins, shelves or any other additions you would like.
