The Benefits of Kitchen Cabinet Refinishing

Debating whether to replace your cabinets or just refinish or resurface them? Here is why many refinish their cabinets instead of replacing them

Cabinets Refinishing – Timing Is Key
A full-scale kitchen remodeling, where cabinets are removed and new cabinets installed, can take weeks or months to complete. Compare that with cabinet resurfacing, which often takes just a few days. By going the cabinet refinishing route, you save:


Inconvenience is major factor with cabinet replacement. For example, when replacing kitchen cabinets, you are forced to live without cabinets for weeks, depending on the scope of the project. This means you have to:

Live with dust and dirt
Put your food and items in temporary holding places.
Set up a temporary kitchen
Replace the floor if it gets damaged during the demolition
Repaint areas that get nicked by the demolition
Eat out frequently, which increases your costs

With kitchen cabinet refinishing, the project often is completed in a few days. There is little disruption to your daily routine. In addition, the dust and dirt is kept to a minimum.

Low Cost of Cabinet Refinishing
Cabinet refinishing is much less costly than cabinet replacement, which can cost from $25,000 to $40,000, as it typically involved remodeling the entire kitchen. The cost varies based on:

The room size
The extent of the work
The type of wood and kitchen cabinet style
The use of crown molding and other details on the kitchen cabinets

There are many reasons to complete a kitchen cabinet resurfacing project. When compared with cabinet replacement, cabinet resurfacing offers a low cost alternative for bringing a new look to your kitchen.

To complete repainting or refinishing cabinets, or if you do a complete resurfacing, there is nothing like new cabinet hardware to make the cupboards look as though they’re newly installed. New cabinet hardware is easy to install, especially since you undoubtedly have the old hardware off already.

The surface preparation is the most important part of painting cabinets. Sometimes we have to strip the old paint in preparation for painting cabinets and other times a good cleaning will do the trick, while leaving the old paint or finish as a base for repainting your cabinets.
