Cabinet Refacing Upgrades - What Options Are Available

Cabinet Refacing Upgrades – What Options Are Available?

Jun 24, 2023

Cabinet refacing isn’t a one-size-fits-all mold. Each kitchen is different and has unique challenges. Every homeowner has specific goals and preferences for their kitchen space. When we sit down to talk about your kitchen, we want to find out what matters most to you. A lot of homeowners aren’t aware of all the options for cabinet refacing upgrades. Here’s a peek into the options that are available, so you can choose what’s best for your home!


Cabinet Refacing Upgrades


  • New door profiles
  • Different wood species or paint color
  • Storage solutions
  • Additional cabinets
  • Upgraded, functional hardware
  • New moldings

These points represent the main options you have for updating your kitchen space with cabinet refacing. Not every homeowner chooses to update all of these aspects. In fact, some only choose one or two! Our goal is updating your kitchen in a way that fits your preferences (what’s most important to you) and your budget.

Let’s take a closer look at how each one of these options can impact your space.


New door profiles


New door profiles are one of the most common options that our clients choose when it comes to updating your space. The benefit of cabinet refacing is that you don’t have to rip out your entire cabinet units in order to make your cabinets look and feel brand new.

If your cabinet boxes are in decent shape and you like the overall layout of your kitchen, we can change the door profile, using any wood species or color you like, and use a matching veneer to update the existing cabinet boxes.

Check out the way that updating the door profiles (and counter tops!) to shaker style doors changed the entire look of this customer’s kitchen space!

Different wood species/colors


Did you know that it’s possible to choose a whole new wood species or color (for painted cabinets) without completely replacing your cabinets? Whether you hope to liven up your kitchen by going from a dark color to light, want to get rid of the outdated oak look, or just want to freshen up the yellowing and staining on your white cabinets, doing so with cabinet refacing gives you whole new look at a fraction of the cost of new cabinets.

Storage solutions


Many of our clients choose to make their kitchens more functional by adding new storage solutions in their existing cabinetry. Adjustable, pull-out shelving, pull-out trash can units, spice racks, lazy susans, and blind corner cabinets are just some of the available options.

When we come out to look at your kitchen, we’re happy to think through the options for increasing your storage with you. When we create your quote, we’ll price any optional additions that we talk about separately. This way, you can choose which upgrades fit best in your budget.


Additional cabinets


Another way to increase your storage space is to add additional cabinets. While we don’t rearrange existing cabinetry, we can provide new cabinet units in any available space. Some additions that our clients have chosen to add include new pantries with pull out drawers, a coffee bar, and more.


Upgraded, functional hardware


Next, the hardware in your kitchen can have a huge impact on the overall look and feel of the space. Updating your old, outdated knobs and drawer pulls with new, modern alternatives can have a drastic affect on how your kitchen feels.

In addition to updating knobs and pulls, many people also choose to upgrade to soft-close hinges and soft-close drawers.


New moldings


Lastly, moldings are an incredibly effective way to add elegance and depth to your cabinets. We work with crown molding, light rail molding, and applied faux panel molding to add interest and style to the space.
