If you are happy with the overall layout of your kitchen and they boxes are in good structural shape, then cabinet refacing is for you.
We remove all your old doors, strip them of all the old metal hardware and recycle all the components as much as possible. We also work with organizations like Habitat for Humanity Restore to minimize what is being sent to our landfills. We then replace them with new custom-sized doors for your space. You choose the colour and finish you want and add your choice of hardware, giving you a brand new look.
Cabinet refacing typically takes 1-2 days to complete depending on the overall scope of the job. The nice thing about refacing is you are never without use of your kitchen for more than a handful of hours while we are actually there working.
There are a lot of variables that will play a role in the cost and depends on the scope of the project but refacing is an extremely cost effective way to get a like new looking kitchen at a fraction of the cost of ripping everything out and starting over (cabinets, plumbing, backsplash, paint, countertops) and you won’t lose use of your kitchen for any length of time.
Yes, we are a dealer for countertops and can provide you Quartz, Solid Surface and Laminate countertops to complete your Reface.
Prior to arrival we ask that you clear counter area and all drawers. If we are replacing drawers no need to empty the old ones. No need to empty the cupboards entirely (unless we are replacing with drawers / pullouts) but we will need clear access to the front third of each cabinet.
Upon arrival we will prepare the area for install and begin removing the old doors and drawers and remove them from the workspace
Next we work on any add-ons, modifications to the cabinets that are needed and clean and prepare all surfaces for the vinyl or veneer peel and stick
Once the Peel and stick is applied and trimmed we work on installing new drawer boxes, kick material, plant on panels and crown molding that may be required
Now that the cabinets are all dressed up they are ready to receive the brand new doors / fronts with Blum European hinges and plates
Finally we put on the final touches by installing knobs and handles that you have chosen
Final cleaning and inspection is completed and a walk around is done with the homeowner
The least expensive option for refacing is a Raised Panel Thermofoil Door in a solid color such as white or antique white.
In our opinion yes, it will help to modernize the overall look of the kitchen which will appeal to a broader buyers market as well the conversion hinge is by far easier to install than trying to re-use face frame hinges and their holes.
Yes, as long as you are a bit handy you can install your own Peel & Stick. Just remember to cut your pieces using a sharp utility knife and apply it to a clean and debris free surface (anything that is on the cabinet will show through after the Peel & Stick is applied). And of course measure twice and cut once :)
No we are strictly a cabinet door manufacturing company; however we do work closely with many cabinet makers so if you need a small cabinet or island that you would like to install yourself we can provide it for you.
We have an experienced team of professionals onboard that are happy to help with your Reface project. Whether its staying exactly the same or you would like to add or modify your existing layout without replacing the whole kitchen call us and we will help.
If you have European Hinges already simply measure your existing doors and drawer fronts, pick a style of door you would like and we can give you a quote. Please include in the request whether or not you would like to reface your boxes and whether you will require knobs or handles.
If you have Face Frame Hinges and wish to upgrade to the European Hinge please follow the instructions below.
First you need to measure for the overlay that you will need. The easiest way to do this is to take a tape measure to the inside of the face frame to the outside of the door when the door is closed. Our standard Face Frame Hinge Overlay is 3/4" or 5/8", we also carry 1". 1 3/8" and 1 1/4" overlay. (Please see the drawing)
On the cabinets that have double doors in them measure your inside cabinet width (in the example it is 21"). We will use the 3/4" Overlay Hinge in this example. So add the overlay two times (for 2 doors). Minus 1/8" for the minimum gap you need between the two doors and then divide by 2.
21 + 3/4" + 3/4" - 1/8" / 2 = 2 doors at 11 3/16"
Keep in mind that if you have two hinged doors sharing the same face frame allow a minimum of 1/2" gap between the doors.
For the Height you can either leave it the same as your existing doors or add up to 1" where there is enough allowance. What you are trying to do by adding extra to the height is close up the gap between the top of your door and the drawer front or countertop edge, but be careful not to add too much and have your doors bind.
If you have a single door opening then measure your inside cabinet width and add the overlay two times. So again if we are using the 3/4" overlay as an example:
21 + 3/4" + 3/4" = 1 doors at 22 ½"
Follow the same rule as above for the height.
Measure your existing drawer fronts.
Visualize your existing Lazy Susan doors, they will be corner doors hinged together (usually with a Piano Hinge) to open as one. Measure each of the cabinet openings as the door would sit closed (meaning an L-Shape). See Diagram
There are a couple of different options for the ends of your cabinets. You can either re-skin it in a matching Peel & Stick product or you can create a plant on gable (which is essentially an oversized door that gets "planted on" to the exposed end. Simply measure your exposed end, but keep in mind that if the exposed end butts up against a wall leave enough of a gap to account for your walls not being 100% square (usually 1/8" gap is sufficient).
