What is Cabinet Redooring?
If your family is like most, the kitchen is the primary gathering place of your home, which means it probably receives a lot of wear and tear. Damaged or outdated cabinets can quickly ruin the look of your kitchen, even if you remodel or update the other areas. If you want new cabinets, but replacing them isn’t in your budget, redooring is a simple, effective and attractive solution.
What is the Cabinet Redooring Process?
Cabinet redooring means installing new cabinet doors and drawer fronts while keeping the cabinet box in place. All of the cabinet doors and drawer fronts are removed and replaced with new fronts and new hardware. If the cabinet boxes are still in good condition, this is a quicker way to get the look of new cabinets, without the hassle of ripping everything out. The color and design will be as close to your previous cabinets as possible, or you can opt to have a different color and design that will blend well with the existing boxes.
What are the Benefits of Cabinet Redooring?
Along with having a new look for your kitchen, one of the best benefits of choosing redooring instead of replacement is that you will be doing your part to help the environment. The cabinet boxes don’t get taken to a landfill, and there is less energy and materials used than what new cabinets require. Other benefits of kitchen cabinet redooring include:
- Less mess and inconvenience
- Installation typically just takes one to two days to complete
- The door style and hardware options are virtually endless
- In many situations, you can still use your kitchen during the installation
- No need to be concerned about the placement, because the original layout doesn’t change
Redooring your kitchen cabinets costs considerably less than replacing them. Depending on the size of the kitchen and materials you choose, it can be as much as 75 percent less expensive than completely replacing your existing cabinets. Even in a medium price range, you could spend a significant amount of money to replace all of the existing cabinets, because there are hidden costs included in a full remodel. For example, when you get a quote for the cabinets, it doesn’t cover the cost of molding, handles, delivery charges and refinishing any walls that have been left damaged or exposed after the cabinet replacement. Cabinet redooring is less time-consuming, less expensive, doesn’t interfere with the kitchen layout. You'll get a whole new look for a cost that is significantly less than cabinet replacement.
