How Much Does it Cost to Reface Cabinets?

Cabinet makeover cost guide

If your existing cabinet boxes are in good condition, cabinet refacing, also known as cabinet makeover, can be an ideal, time-saving kitchen renovation option. The average cost for a cabinet refacing project is approximately $13,500. This cost estimate includes materials, certified and insured installers as well as project management. 

This estimate is based on 30 linear feet of cabinets (200 square foot kitchen). Additional upgrades such as in-cabinet organization, hardware, crown molding, and additional cabinets are also available.

Benefits of Cabinet Refacing

Extensive options 

Choose exactly how your new doors and hardware will look and feel. Cabinet doors are available in an array of colors, textures, and stains to create your ideal kitchen. 

Speedy installation 

Most cabinet refacing projects are installed in as few as 3 to 5 days. 

Environmentally friendly 

Because you are not changing walls, replacing cabinet boxes or updating your kitchen layout, cabinet refacing has a much smaller carbon footprint compared to a complete kitchen remodel. 

Kitchen access 

Your kitchen remains accessible while the project is underway. This means you will avoid the additional cost involved in dining out.
