Cabinet refacing is probably the most economical improvement you can make to your kitchen and the one that brings the biggest ROI (return on investment).
With cabinet refacing you completely change the color and/or wood grain, change the drawers and doors, and all the knobs, handles and hinges.
For those concerned about the environment, cabinet refacing is a great way to keep a lot of trash off the landfills.
A professionally done cabinet refacing job for a typical kitchen around 10 feet by 12 feet, starts at around $1500 for laminate.
Other materials like real wood veneer can cost anywhere from $3,000 to $9,000.
It's cheaper to reface your kitchen cabinets. The cost can be from 40% to 50% cheaper than the cost of replacing the cabinets.
