Whether a homeowner is tired of their dull and dreary kitchen or a new buyer wants to make their house into a reflection of their personal style, one of the simplest approaches to an update is through custom cabinet refacing. This uses the existing "boxes" and simply replaces doors and drawer fronts, while also resurfacing the remaining cabinet areas.
For this discussion we will consider the materials and requirements of a custom cabinet refacing project for the "average" kitchen. The average kitchen, which stands at roughly 200 square feet, will have approximately 30 linear feet of cabinetry. This means that there is going to be around fifteen linear feet of base mounted cabinetry and another fifteen linear feet of wall-mounted cupboards and shelves. Every surface that is matching in design and style to the pre-existing cabinetry will also have to be refaced as well. This might mean a refrigerator surround, a kitchen island, and free-standing cupboards elsewhere in the space too.
Is this a DIY project? Not really, though there are kits and materials sold for this sort of work at many home improvement stores, the veneering techniques used are extremely advanced. Most homeowners hire professionals to perform this sort of work.
The average costs and materials associated with this project include:
