Cabinet Refacing FAQs in Riverside, CA

Most people think the only way to update their cabinetry is to invest in costly and time-consuming replacements, but this is far from the truth. In reality, cabinet refacing is a less costly, less wasteful, and quicker option. With Built by Design, cabinet refacing has never been easier. Check out the FAQs below to learn more about the cabinet refacing process.

What is cabinet refacing?

Cabinet refacing is an upgrade to your existing cabinet boxes. The process involves removing the doors, hardware, and drawer fronts from your existing cabinets, refacing the boxes with veneer, and replacing the doors and drawers with new products.

What is the veneer made from?

The veneer that is applied to the existing boxes is a thin layer of 100% real wood skin.

Why shouldn’t I simply replace my cabinets?

Refacing your cabinets can save you 40-50% on average, compared to the cost of entirely replacing your cabinets. In addition, refacing creates less waste and will allow your project to be completed weeks, handily before a full renovation would normally be finished.

Additionally, if you’re considering putting your house on the market and your cabinets look a bit tired, cabinet refacing can greatly increase your chances of selling quickly.

How long does cabinet refacing take?

Not long at all! The cabinet refacing process is much quicker than a full renovation. The average project can be completed in 2-5 days.

Does cabinet refacing cost as much as new cabinets?

Compared to replacements, cabinet refacing can save you 40-50% on average.
