What is Kitchen Cabinet Refacing?

Cabinet refacing is a process that involves removing all of the kitchen cabinet doors, drawer fronts, hinges, and moldings from your existing kitchen cabinets.  After we remove all of the exterior openings, we prepare and cover these surfaces of the cabinet box (sides, bottom and face-frame) to match the brand new cabinet doors, drawer fronts and moldings.

Then we install brand new kitchen cabinet doors and drawer fronts, custom-made to fit your kitchen cabinets, and brand-new hardware, pulls, hinges and moldings. You will choose the look and feel of your kitchen by selecting from a wide variety of door styles, as well as new hardware and moldings to suit your taste. So you may select any kitchen cabinet door or color that you desire, whether stained or painted.  Therefore, the end result will look like we have torn everything out and installed a brand new kitchen!

Why Choose Midwest Kitchens for Cabinet Refacing?

At Midwest Kitchens, we use only the highest quality kitchen cabinet doors and drawer fronts made of solid maple, cherry, birch, oak, and other North American hardwoods. Further, we offer a wide selection of custom kitchen cabinet door styles and finishes from Showplace Cabinetry.

All of the hardwoods are stained, sealed, varnished and oven-cured in a controlled manufacturing setting at the Showplace Cabinetry factory in South Dakota. For painted finishes, Showplace Cabinetry applies an additional top-coat, varnish, and oven-curing process for a long-lasting finish. Moreover, we are proud to offer a line of kitchen cabinets from Showplace Cabinetry that are made in the U.S.A. by an employee-owned company.

Is Cabinet Refacing Right for Me?

Cabinet refacing is an excellent option for kitchen cabinets that are structurally sound but that look worn or dated. The majority of kitchen cabinets that we reface are between 15 – 45 years old. With cabinet refacing, you get to choose the look and feel of your new kitchen without having to completely remodel it, and cabinet refacing is a fraction of the cost of brand new kitchen cabinets.

Therefore, if your existing kitchen cabinet “boxes” are in good shape, but your kitchen cabinet doors are showing wear, or if you are simply unhappy with the color or style of the doors, then cabinet refacing is right for you.

How Long Does Cabinet Refacing Take to Complete?

We complete most cabinet refacing projects within one week, depending on the size of the kitchen and the scope of the project. However, our customers often choose to make kitchen design modifications and replace countertops, sinks and tile at the same time. When you select Midwest Kitchens for your kitchen project, we guide you through the entire cabinet refacing and kitchen remodeling process. After we determine the scope of the project with you, we will provide a realistic estimate of the completion date for your cabinet refacing project.

How Do I Know Whether to Choose Cabinet Refacing or New Kitchen Cabinets?

Midwest Kitchens offers both kitchen cabinet refacing and brand new kitchen cabinets. So if your kitchen cabinets are over approximately 45 years old, it may be time to replace them with brand new kitchen cabinets. Therefore, when we come out for a consultation, we make an assessment of your existing cabinets and help you decide which option is best for you.

We will always give you our honest opinion, and never attempt to sell you something that you do not need. However, in many cases with kitchen cabinets over 45 years old, replacement may be the best long term option.
