Painting kitchen cabinets versus refacing kitchen cabinets…which is the best way to go?
Painting kitchen cabinets is the more affordable option out of the 4 ways to update your cabinets, and when cabinets are professionally painted, by an experienced painting contractor, they can look completely brand new!
Painting Kitchen Cabinets
In the cabinet painting process, we remove your cabinet doors and cabinet drawers, clean them up, prep them and then paint them. Before we remount the doors and reinsert the drawers, we also hand paint the cabinet boxes / frames. Add new hardware (hinges, knobs, cabinet latches), and virtually overnight, the kitchen cabinets look brand new! One of the best benefits of cabinet painting is that you can choose any color you want – as a complement to your island or countertops or as a dramatic accent color. We even offer a free color consultation to help you find the perfect look that works with your appliances, counters, or even an adjoining room.
Refacing Kitchen Cabinets
With cabinet refacing, you actually go through the process of replacing the cabinet doors and drawer fronts, keeping the existing cabinet boxes / frames in place. By doing this, you can change your door design, change out the types of wood, and/or change the type of finish. But cabinet refacing can be expensive, far more expensive than cabinet painting. In fact, the cost will probably be about 50%-70% of the cost of actually replacing the cabinets (which is no cheap solution). In addition, with cabinet refacing, you will be more limited with color options.
