If your layout is decent and the cabinets are in good shape, then your kitchen is an excellent candidate for refacing, and saving you money!
We offer a full range of cabinet doors and drawer fronts, finished and ready to install. Everything is made to order to your specifications. All we require is a list of the doors you need and we can have them made for you. And, we can also order in all of the parts you’ll need to complete a refacing project from panels to fillers, mouldings, toekicks – the whole works. We can even get you thin veneer material to cut & fit to cover the existing sides of your cabinets.
Here are some tips on how to manage some of the trickier parts of a refacing project:
We can order doors or drawer fronts made to measure in almost any size. Our door and drawer front style and finish options are many and we will be pleased to help you decide what is best for you.
So, if you need a new door or want to add on to an existing kitchen design, we can also help you out there. We can order in new door or drawer fronts to replace an old, damaged one, or order new cabinets to match the ones you already have.
We make completing a refresh on your kitchen simple and easy. When you’re ready, fill out our form here to begin.
Create a list of all the doors and fronts you need, with the sizes. The standards we use are width x height, in inches.
List all of the panels, toekicks, fillers and other mouldings you may need to complete the refacing work. 5/8” panels are available in a few standard sizes, and are designed to be cut to fit on site. We’ll recommend the closest standard size to suit your needs.
Select the door style and finish you would like and send us your list! We’ll get a quote together for your new refacing project as quickly as possible.
If there is enough space the easiest way to handle exposed sides of cabinets is to apply a new 5/8” end panel. These panels are usually made deeper than the box and will end up flush with the front of the doors/drawers and so will completely cover the exposed end.
If there is not enough room for a panel, a thin sheet of veneer can be applied to cover the exposed cabinet ends.
We feel the easiest way to handle both exposed cabinet ends that can’t accept an end panel and the edgebanding on the cabinet boxes is to paint them.
If you are using a solid colour finish on your new doors, then a matching paint applied to those edges and sides will be the quickest and easiest way to keep the colour consistent.
Using a high quality high adhesion primer is key, your local paint store can help you out there. You can also look into local painting companies that specialize in cabinet refinishing.
You can also have your existing doors painted, although the costs are quite high, in some cases almost the cost of a new replacement door!
In the event that the standard hinge placement of our doors does not match your existing cabinets, we can order the door fronts without a hinge hole pre-drilled and you can drill the hinge hole to your own measurements.
The other option is to relocate the old hinge plate to align with the new hinge location.
If you decide to order the doors without hinge holes being drilled, we do offer our handy-dandy hinge hole drilling machine on a daily rental basis. It’s easy to use and small and portable.
Ask us about it when you come in to the store to look at the door styles! We’ll tell you all about it.
