We, homeowners, are faced with one dilemma when we are renovating our house especially the kitchen. Since kitchen cabinets form an integral part of the kitchen, we are faced with a challenge whether to replace the kitchen cabinet or reface it. Many choose Kitchen Cabinet Refacing from their trusted Cabinet makers.
So what is Kitchen Cabinet Refacing?
In the cabinet making and selling business, kitchen cabinet refacing is called kitchen cabinet resurfacing as well. Kitchen cabinet refacing predominantly include reinforcement of existing cabinet frames with durable plywood. Thereafter a layer of lamination is applied over the plywood. Subsequently, precise measurements are taken in order to ensure that refaced cabinets are smooth and continuous, with no apparent gaps or spaces between one part and the next. Simultaneously they are matched with the color of various other components of the cabinet which have a direct aesthetic impact on the cabinets, Viz. drawer fronts and new doors. Last but not the least, molding, knobs &/or pulls or hinges selected based on the choice of the homeowners, concludes the transformation of the kitchen, this home.
Kitchen cabinet refacing is simply a matter of switching out the doors i.e. of course after veneering all the exposed parts of the frame in accordance with the renovation. Cabinet Makers can make this technique work well with partial overlay doors, in which the face frame is visible. Nevertheless, being experts in their trade cabinet makers are capable of undertaking kitchen cabinet refacing with full-overlay doors sans flush-inset doors and face frame. If the cabinets have flush-inset doors it would have face frame on the same plane as the doors. In both the scenarios the consumers have to ensure that they approve the purchase of the same size doors that is being replaced. This is a better option rather than the method of measuring the cabinet openings in order to add an inch to create an overlapping joint.
When it comes to veneering, veneers that come with adhesives are preferred over the ones that don’t come with any adhesives. This is because the veneers that come with adhesive wouldn’t require any cement. However, the adhesive is quite strong and makes it very difficult for the cabinet makers to remove the veneer when it’s already applied. The aforementioned has to be considered during measuring, cutting and placing a strip on the cabinet. Kitchen cabinet refacing can be neatly executed of the veneer is trimmed with a utility knife after it has been applied. Please ensure that the kitchen cabinet makers are not compromising on the sharpness of the blade that is being used to trim the veneer.
