Refacing Cabinets

janewagnerJune 21, 2013

Considering refacing our kitchen cabinets -- I like the layout, we have a big kitchen, and at this point in our lives, rather travel with the big bucks than invest in new cabinetry, electrical, etc. Anyway, shocked at the quote for refacing our cabinets and coating the end pieces with laminate or vinyl. Would opt for an ivory painted wood. Has anyone just replaced the doors & drawers so that they might match the painted end pieces and cabinet frames (50 units of doors & drawers)? Why cover wood w/ laminate or vinyl, we ask. Do contractors want to just install new doors/drawers? We like our tile backsplash, countertop and have new appliances.

We replaced only our cabinet doors/drawers with white raised panel doors. The people who built the house evidently thought it would be lovely to make kitchen cabinets out of living room paneling, complete with vertical grooves (70's). We only had them do the doors/drawers. We had paint matched to the door color and painted the boxes ourselves.

It made a huge difference in the look of the kitchen. Yes, we also thought it was quite expensive.
