The cost of kitchen cabinet refacing depends on many factors.
The most important consideration is the condition of your existing cabinets. If your cabinets are constructed of solid wood and plywood and the drawers work well, your kitchen may be a good candidate for refacing. If you have inexpensive particleboard cabinetry, you could be throwing money away.
Cabinet refacing is only one part of a kitchen remodel
Many people who are updating their kitchen cabinetry also want new countertops, sink and faucet, tile backsplashes, and new appliances. These products and services are typically not provided by a cabinet refacing company.
The type of refacing material you choose will affect the cost. For instance, if you choose a plastic laminate to cover the cabinets and square edge laminated doors the cost will be much less than a wood veneer and solid wood doors and drawer fronts.
The size of the kitchen and the location will affect the price as well. For example, a house with a backdoor entrance to the kitchen that is level with the driveway will be less expensive than a third-floor condo.
According to the Home Depot website, the average cost of a kitchen reface is $13,500. This cost only includes refacing the cabinets and does not include organizational accessories, hardware, moldings, or additional cabinets. It also does not include countertops, sink and faucet, and backsplash. If your drawers don’t work well and need to be replaced, that will add to the cost.
Remodeling Magazine’s yearly cost versus value report for 2020 states that the average mid-range kitchen remodels in the Greensboro area costs $20,785. If $13,500 of that is just the cabinets, that doesn’t leave a lot of money for countertops, sink and faucet, backsplashes, accessories, and appliances.
Consider getting an estimate on replacing your cabinets
The advantage to replacing your cabinets is you have the ability to modify your layout or design. It seems that most kitchens have some design flaw like a dishwasher door that hits the hardware on an opposing cabinet, poor workflow, or lack of storage. New cabinetry gives you the flexibility to improve the design, add storage, and add features like glass-front cabinets.
If you are planning on remodeling your kitchen, get an estimate for both refacing and replacing and compare them to determine the best value for you.
