Quick Low Cost Tips: Cabinet Fronts

Home owners should consider updating tired looking kitchen cabinets. Reconditioning is the least expensive move for under $1,000. If the wood is starting to look shabby from use or contaminants in the air, you can take out nicks and scratches, recondition it with oil, and put new hardware on. For $1,500 to $4,000, owners can replace the cabinet doors and drawer fronts, and for $4,000 to $10,000, they can have all the cabinets refaced, all depending on the style and decor the owner chooses.

This is far cheaper than replacing old cabinets with a completely new set which can cost $15,000 to $20,000 and up depending on the size kitchen, style cabinet, and quality. With refacing, owners can change the color of the cabinets by replacing the door and having a new skin put on the boxes. If you have oak cabinets today, you can have cherry the next day!
