Cabinet Redooring/Refronting: This is a 1 to 2 Day Process
Redooring or Refronting are terms used in our industry when only the doors and drawer fronts are being replaced on a cabinet. This is an environmentally and budget friendly option, as less material ends up in a landfill, and a cost effective alternative to refacing or total cabinet replacement.
1. Remove old doors and drawer fronts and haul away.
2. Clean cabinets with an eco friendly cleaner.
3. Install custom color matched doors in the same wood species.
4. Install new drawer boxes and pull out trays. (Option).
5. Install new drawer fronts.
6. Install handles and knobs.
Change the kitchen layout by reusing all or part of your existing cabinets. Add new cabinets of your own design. Add a pantry, bookcases, shelves or even an island if room allows. Once the old and new cabinets are refaced the look exactly the same.
1. Modify the cabinet above or next to the refrigerator to allow for a taller or wider unit.
2. Modify the cabinet above the stove and add a microwave.
3. Modify the oven cabinet to allow for a different sized unit or add a build-in microwave.
4. Modify a base cabinet and replace two doors with two heavy pan drawer boxes, etc.
If you decide you want to paint the cabinets yourself or have them done professionally, we can do the Redoor with color matched Paint Grade Doors. We use a hardener in our process so that the doors are more durable. We also offer Rigid Thermofoil doors in several solid colors if you are looking for a more affordable option. * We do not offer painting services.
Cabinet Restoration/Reconditioning: This is a one day project.
1. Wipe cabinets clean.
2. Hand rub a matching stain color onto the wood. Doors drawer fronts and hinges are not removed.
3. Spray 1 to 3 coats of clear varnish. Fans are set up by the exit door to suck out the residue. No masking or tarping is
done for this quick fix. You can go with a darker stain color or have the cabinets whitewashed. This is a two day project.
In this case, masking and tarping is done. * We do not provide this service.
Cabinet Resurfacing: This is a 3 to 5 day project.
This process only works with euro-style flat doors with edge banded squared edges.
Remove old laminate and edge banding.
1. Sand doors to remove old adhesive.
2. Install new laminate with fresh glue on flat surfaces.
3. Install color matched edge banding.
4. Reinstall doors and drawer fronts.
* Sometimes it is less expensive to replace the doors, depending on their condition. * We do not provide this service.
Cabinet Refinishing: This process can take up to 10 days if done properly.
1. Remove old doors and drawer fronts and remove hardware.
2. Take removable parts to the shop for processing.
3. Strip off old stain, sand, re-stain and add finish.
4. The same process is used on site to refinish the cabinet boxes. There are harsh chemicals involved with this
method. Reinstall hardware, doors and drawer fronts.
* Although this method will cost less than Refacing, you end up with a shiny kitchen with the same outdated style.
* We do not provide this service.

Once again, the best performing Kitchen and Bath project was Minor Kitchen Remodel, which includes new appliances and countertops, and a facelift for existing cabinets. At $21,899 (average cost), it is not the least expensive K&B project, but it offers a lot of bang for the buck. The national average cost for refacing is from $7000 to $9000 for a 200 square foot kitchen with 30 lineal feet of cabinets. The average ROI (return on investment) in the greater Seattle area at resale in 2016 was $104.3%.
