Refacing allows you to resurface your cabinets with affordable new veneers, hinges, handles and drawer glides. Creative options
for glamorous new looks. You want to update your kitchen — brighten it up, make it look bigger, regain some of that lost space in the “dead” corners, perhaps even get some of those new fancy doors and modern countertops. But you can’t imagine really doing it.

Will I have to get a second mortgage to pay for it? How many months will it take? Can I live in a ripped apart kitchen?

Refacing is an option that remodelers may not be familiar with.

However, Essential Cabinet Refacing has been refacing kitchens for two decades. And, they can easily replace your existing doors with new ones and resurface the exterior of your cabinets with matching laminate or wood veneer.

You choose the style and composition of your new doors.

All the hardware is new, including the hinges, handles and drawer glides. An average job takes 8 to 10 working days, and
the cost is less than half that of new cabinets.

Get a new kitchen at a fraction of the cost of “new,” while adding value and beauty to the most important room in your house without breaking the bank.

Essential Cabinet Refacing has multiple options: lazy susans, convenient roll-out drawers, wine racks and a variety of countertop materials to choose from, including such brands as Silestone, Corian, Hi-MACS Staron, and granite.
