Why Cabinet Refacing is the Best Value for Remodeling Kitchen Cabinets

By Vince Nardo, President Reborn Cabinets

A beautiful modern kitchen with sparkling white countertops, light-brown wood cabinets, and a textured backsplash.Signature Refacing from Reborn Cabinets is an affordable option to update the look of your existing cabinets without the hassle of a complete tear out or full scale remodel. In fact, of the 2000 kitchen projects we complete annually, more than two thirds of our customers opt for cabinet refacing over a kitchen remodel. And that’s not due to the affordability of this project. Cabinet refacing also provides exceptional results, making cabinets look brand new. Ultimately, cabinet refacing simply provides the best value for local homeowners’ remodeling dollar.

Why Does Cabinet Refacing Cost Less Than a Major Kitchen Remodel?

The primary reason people want to remodel their cabinets is because the finish has started to wear and the look is outdated. Cabinet refacing is an innovative process designed to renew cabinets with minimal material alterations and labor requirements, thereby costing much less than a replacement or floor-to-ceiling remodel. We start by removing the doors and drawer fronts and replacing them with new, custom-crafted components at our own state-of-the-art facility. Then, we apply a durable hardwood veneer to the existing cabinet boxes. The result? A completely refreshed look for your cabinets that allows you to choose from myriad style and color combinations.

Reborn Cabinets Signature Refacing is a factory pre-finished product. Using our automated state of the art equipment ensures a uniform coating of our Pro-guard system that resists moisture and even nail polish remover.

Comparing the Value of Cabinet Refacing & Major Kitchen Remodeling

There’s a lot to consider when determining the value of a home remodeling project. Primarily, you’ll want to factor in the cost, your overall satisfaction with the results, and, finally, what the project does for the resale value of your home.

As we’ve already discussed, cabinet refacing costs much less than a major kitchen remodel and provides truly stunning results. But what does this project do for resale value? It turns out that Signature Cabinet Refacing is a great investment.

Cabinet Refacing & Minor Kitchen Remodeling Return on Investment

According to the annually published Cost vs. Value Report in 2021, a minor kitchen remodel, such as cabinet refacing, costs an average of $28,729 and, upon selling your home, you can expect to recoup 78.8% of your investment.
