Kitchen Cabinet Refacing can be a good, cost-saving option for kitchen remodeling if the existing cabinets are well constructed and in good shape, and where a radically different look is desired. It is also a good choice where existing kitchen layout works well as it is.
Often an existing kitchen needs a little help to modernize the look as well as adding features such as drawer storage. The image below is a before picture of the initial kitchen cabinets that were installed when the house was originally built.
The following picture shows the condition of the exiting wall cabinets. Because of the fact that the initial installation was done poorly since day one when the house was built, cabinets were literally falling off the wall in the one section. Usually issues like this can arise while completing the project therefore you always need to ensure enough time is committed to fixing issues such as these so the cabinet refacing can be a long term solution for the customer.

Pros of Kitchen Cabinet Refacing
Retains the kitchen layout. Refacing is perfect if your current kitchen layout meets your needs.
Many style options. Many dozens of different veneer options exist, both for laminates and natural woods.
Cost savings. Refacing usually gives you the look of new cabinets for about half the cost of new custom cabinets. But costs need to be carefully considered.
Refacing is a green remodeling option. Refacing keeps cabinet boxes away from the landfill - Great advantage considering that many cabinet boxes are made of MDF, which contains formaldehyde, a hazardous chemical.
It also prevents more trees from being cut down to construct new cabinet boxes.

Cabinet refacing can be a good, cost-saving option for kitchen remodeling if the existing cabinets are well-constructed and in good shape, and where a radically different look is desired.
It is also a good choice where the existing kitchen layout works well as it is. But where the existing cabinets have structural problems, or where hardware is in poor condition or internal storage features are lacking, you may be better off installing all-new cabinets.
