Rebuilding or remodeling your kitchen is not usually the most cost-effective renovation. If you want to make your kitchen look spectacular on an extremely low budget, then you should seriously consider kitchen refacing as an economical alternative. Although it is hard to tell exactly what the cost of refacing a kitchen might be, you can rest assured that it is far cheaper than remodeling or rebuilding.
One of the questions that inevitably arise whenever the topic of kitchen refacing is brought up is: What costs are involved in kitchen refacing? This can be a rather tricky question, more so considering that the kitchen in your house may not be the same size or design as someone else’s.
The best way to find out what refacing your kitchen will cost is to talk to an expert finish carpenter in your area. Keep in mind that several factors may affect the price that the carpenter quotes for you. Moreover, in order to give a price that is a close estimate to the actual cost, the carpenter might need to perform an onsite inspection of your kitchen.
A professional kitchen-cabinet refacing will cost anywhere from $1,000 to $2,500, depending on the cabinet’s base material. For real wood veneer, you can expect to pay anywhere from $2,500 to $6,000 for a perfect refacing.
Factoring in the other bits and pieces, such as handles, pulls and knobs, which run from $2 to $5 per piece, will add an extra $40 or $50 to the total price.
However, compared to kitchen remodeling, which will cost you $4,000 to $5,000 for the most basic renovations, refacing is obviously twice as cost-effective as remodeling.
