Like most parts of interior design, cabinets aren’t just about function—they set the mood and atmosphere of any given space. Whether you’re going for a classic design or a modern ambiance, cabinet style and color can be the final say on how your kitchen feels. For many homeowners looking to give their space a facelift, the cabinets are the first place to start.
However, replacing cabinets comes with a significant renovation project requiring substantial labor, time, and expense. Luckily, cabinet refacing has become widely available as a cost-effective alternative. Rather than tossing out the old cabinets, refacing preserves the basic structure of the original cabinets. Using veneer, laminates, and new cabinet drawers and doors, you still get a completely new look. It’s a budget-friendly way to update your kitchen without breaking the bank.
Keep it Cost-Effective
With limited demolition and material costs, refacing offers hefty savings. By keeping the basic structure of the cabinets intact, you save on unnecessary costs in designing, manufacturing, and installation. The difference is staggering; on average, refacing cabinets costs 30-50% less than replacement!
The money you save with refacing can be used to bring your renovation to the next level. It can provide the extra funds you need to add custom details, complete repairs—or even take on additional projects. Whatever you choose, you’re likely to save thousands by refacing rather than replacing cabinets during renovations.
Take the Eco-Friendly Initiative
Refacing is also more environmentally-friendly than replacing. Unsurprisingly, demolition waste from renovations big and small stacks up quickly, and cabinets are no different. Every year, 37 million tons of wood product waste enter landfills from renovation projects. Though there are some venues for repurposing old cabinets for new homes, the majority of wood from cabinet removal is likely to end up as waste.
Refacing conserves as much of the original product as possible. Plus, without the significant demolition required for cabinet removal, the doors and drawers from your old cabinets are likely to remain in good shape. Ultimately, refacing cuts back on unnecessary waste while allowing you to makeover your space.
Replacing cabinets is an arduous process. Cabinets must be designed, built from scratch, stained, and installed, a process that quickly turns a small project into a renovation hassle. Particularly in your kitchen, this commitment of time and energy can throw a serious wrench into your home life.
Unsurprisingly, refacing takes much less time than replacement. Less time is required for manufacturing and installation. Refacing is also much less invasive, so you can count on a more mess-free experience. With the professional service offered by Bordner Home Solutions, you can expect a refacing job to be completed in as little as a few days.

Reface vs. Replace
While refacing is preferable, there are certain situations where it won’t fulfill your needs. Refacing can’t fix underlying structural issues within your cabinet. Sometimes, replacing your cabinets is the best choice.
So, when do you replace instead of refacing? First, if you’re looking to change the layout of your kitchen, then a full removal and replacement is your best bet. Second, if the cabinets have experienced water damage, cracks, mold, and similar issues, then a replacement may be necessary. Unsure if you need to reface or replace? No worries. Our expert representatives can help you decide if cabinet refacing is right for you.
