Cabinet Refinishing Fort Worth
Cabinet Refinishing is a quick, affordable option to update any home.
If you’re interested in modernizing and at the same time improving the
look of your kitchen or bathroom on a limited budget, then cabinet refinishing or resurfacing may be the perfect option for you! When refinishing or resurfacing your cabinets, you can avoid the high investment associated with buying and installing brand new custom cabinets. Not sure what the best option for your kitchen or bathroom is? We’re also always happy to give free consultations. Additionally, you can read on to understand a little bit more about what each technique involves and how to decide between the two.
Cabinet refinishing and resurfacing are similar in that both techniques can be used to update the exterior look of your cabinets. However, with cabinet refinishing you keep all the design and structural components of your existing cabinets and change only the color or the finish of the outer visible faces of the cabinets.
This is completed by hand sanding or chemically stripping the doors, drawer faces, and boxes of their current color. The inside of the cabinets remains the same. Once the old finish color has been removed completely, a new color of paint or stain can be applied. This is the most economical option that we offer for changing the look of your kitchen or bathroom cabinets. Generally, the process is also quite quick.
The entire process from planning to completion can be finished in as little as a couple of days.
Cabinet resurfacing, also known as cabinet refacing, is a technique where the face, or visible fronts of the cabinets, are removed and resurfaced with new laminate material, paint, or wood veneer. You may also replace the hardware, side panels, moldings, or face frames to match the new material.
This is a great method for covering previous finish problems, stains, or blemishes
on older cabinets. This method allows you to update the look of your cabinets
relatively cheaply and in a short amount of time. On average, resurfacing costs 60% less than investing in and installing new custom cabinets. And resurfacing can be completed in as little as 2-4 days. Our homeowners who’d like to update the look of their cabinets, but can’t afford a remodel or brand-new cabinets, usually opt for refacing or resurfacing.

How to Decide If You Should Refinish Your Existing Cabinetry or Resurface It?
Now that you understand a little more about the similarities and differences between cabinet resurfacing/refacing and cabinet refinishing, how do you decide which technique will fit your needs the best? Below we’ve created a simple checklist to determine whether your cabinets would be a good candidate for either technique.
Once you’ve determined that they would make a good candidate, it depends on your schedule, budget, and how much you’d really like to change the look of your cabinets. For additional advice on the right treatment for you, please give us a call.
- Inspect the interior of your cabinets for signs of structural damage, if you notice any rot, water damage, cracked panels, or loose joints, your cabinets most likely need complete replacing. Make sure that the area around and under the sink is still solid, and not warped or sagging.
- Check that the upper cabinets are securely hanging from the walls and are solidly stuck together. If they are separating from the wall or from each other, this is a sign that they need to be replaced.
- Make sure that each drawer opens and closes smoothly on its track (with drawer slides firmly attached). You should be able to slide it fully open and closed. Check that the corner joints are tight and that the bottoms of the drawers are not cracked or sagging.
