Is It Worth It to Reface Kitchen Cabinets? Our AZ Experts Explain

Installing new cabinets can be time-consuming, not to mention the whole process can take up nearly half of your renovation budget. So, it’s no surprise that many people look to more affordable options for their remodeling needs, such as refacing

So, is refacing worth the hype?

The short answer…? Yes (if you choose a process similar to ours!)

At Cabinet Coatings, our refacing process is a great option for homeowners who want to dramatically change the look of a room at a fraction of the cost of a full cabinet replacement. 

Refacing with Cabinet Coatings is worth it, and here’s why…

  • We only use high-quality, long-lasting products – unlike other companies that use cheap “peel and stick” veneers.
  • We replace old cabinet doors with new, custom-designed ones and apply our ultra-durable coating process with a new color of your choice.
  • Our process is simple, budget-friendly, and can be completed in less than a week.

*Note: It’s important to do your research, as not all refacing jobs are done equally. 

In this article, we’ll go over why refacing your cabinets with Cabinet Coatings IS worth it and how our process dramatically differs from our competitors.

Our refacing process is worth it, and here’s why…

No veneers here

When it comes to refacing, most companies go the cheap route and apply a plastic or wood veneer over existing cabinet doors, boxes, and drawer fronts. If you’re not familiar with veneers, it’s important to note they damage easily and don’t last. This process can leave your doors damaged and cracked within a year or two, in which case it may not be worth the time or cost of the project.

Unlike our competitors, we never use veneers. Instead, we work with a local cabinet maker to provide completely new doors and apply an ultra-durable coating that lasts much longer than veneers. 

More on that below… 

Custom doors and finishing

During our refacing process, we’ll use your existing cabinet boxes and layout, but completely replace your doors with brand-new, solid wood doors from a local Phoenix-based cabinet maker. 

Once your custom doors are ready, we then apply 2–3 layers of our ultra-durable acrylic coating—and, unlike veneers, our factory-grade coating won’t crack or peel when the wood beneath it naturally expands and contracts. 

Our coating process is guaranteed to give your cabinets a smooth, timeless look – keeping them looking new for years to come.

We keep things simple

All of our customers receive a free, in-home consultation where we walk you through the entire refacing process and answer any questions you may have. We’ll help you design the kitchen or bathroom you’ve been dreaming of and give you multiple cabinet door designs and color options to choose from. 

Once you choose your new cabinet doors and color, we’ll give you a fair, written quote immediately. 

When your cabinet doors are ready, our team can typically finish your cabinet refacing project in less than a week. We’ll install your new cabinet doors, along with any other upgrades, like new high-quality soft-close drawer tracks and hinges, hardware, knobs/handles, and more. 

We’ll also teach you how to properly care for your new cabinets, so you can help them retain their high-quality look for longer.
