Kitchen Refacing

Remodeling has many myths and misconceptions that surround cabinet refacing. With over forty years in the industry and a strong desire to share our experience with our community we wanted to take the time to explain the benefits of a kitchen reface.

Many people think a kitchen reface is a band-aide until you can save enough money to have a full-blown remodel, but that just isn't the case. 

The result of a reface can dramatically affect your kitchens overall appearance. If not done properly you will only regret the time and money by not having a professional do the job correctly.

 

Let me tell you what a Toupin reface is like.

If you have a kitchen with a good footprint, meaning you do not want or need to remove any walls or change the layout of your cabinets, a reface might be just the solution for you. 

  • The box frames will remain, and the doors and drawers will be replaced, and new hinges and glides will be added. 
  • 3/8" solid wood stained to your preferred color choice is then attached to the box frames. 
  • If desired, cabinets can be professionally painted to reduce the cost. Quality painting requires 90% prep and 10% painting.

Some additional options that clients have chosen to include are: 

  • crown molding
  • toe kick drawers
  • light rail 
  • under cabinet lighting

Picking out new knobs or pulls for you cabinets can reflect your own personality and style.


 

 

Other Great Benefits:

Permit: Cabinet refacing or replacement without changing walls, plumbing, or electrical configurations does not usually require a city permit.

Cost: New cabinetry is expensive, and you can dramatically cut your cost by refacing your current cabinets instead of purchasing new ones. 

Time Frame: Remodeling is time consuming and can be very stressful. A kitchen remodel can take six weeks and most of that time you are unable to use your kitchen at all. A reface can be completed within five to ten days and you are still able to use portions of your kitchen.

Value: A remodeled kitchen can add value to your day to day life in addition to your home value. A remodeled kitchen is listed in the top three items that the majority of home-buyers look for.
