The Complete Guide to Refacing Your Kitchen Cabinets with TMAK Restoration

An Introduction to Cabinet Refacing

We are TMAK Restoration, your go-to experts for kitchen makeovers! For over 20 years, we’ve been passionate about remodeling kitchens and bathrooms, with a special love for working on kitchen cabinets. We’re really good at what we do, and we enjoy every bit of it. This guide is all about one of our favorite things to do – refacing kitchen cabinets. Refacing is a great way to change up your kitchen without a full remodel. It’s about giving your cabinets a new look, making your kitchen feel brand new. Let’s dive in and see how TMAK Restoration can transform your kitchen cabinets with some smart refacing.

Understanding Cabinet Refacing

Cabinet refacing means changing the outside parts of your cabinets to give them a new style. It’s different from buying all new cabinets because we just update the parts you see. This can be the doors, drawer fronts, and the sides of your cabinets. It’s like giving your kitchen a new outfit!

Refacing has some great benefits. First, it saves you money compared to getting all new cabinets. It’s also quicker, so you won’t have a messy kitchen for too long. Plus, it’s better for the environment because we use fewer materials.

This option works best if your cabinets are still strong and in good shape but just need a style update. If the structure of your cabinets is damaged, then you might need more than just refacing.

Planning Your Cabinet Refacing Project

Before starting, we need to check your cabinets. Are they strong enough for a refacing? If yes, then we can start thinking about the new look. What style do you want? What colors and materials do you like? We’ll help you pick out the perfect new doors and drawer fronts that match your kitchen’s style.

At TMAK Restoration, we work closely with you to plan your project. We’ll talk about what you want and how we can make it happen. Our team is great at understanding your ideas and turning them into a beautiful kitchen. Together, we’ll plan every step, from choosing the right materials to finishing up the project.

Material Selection

Choosing the right materials for your cabinet refacing is crucial to achieving the look you desire. At TMAK Restoration, we offer a wide range of materials to suit every taste and budget. You can choose from classic wood veneers, which give a timeless, elegant look, or modern laminates that come in various colors and patterns. We also provide different finish options – from glossy that adds a sleek touch to matte for a more understated elegance.

Moreover, the hardware – handles, knobs, and hinges – plays a significant role in the overall aesthetic. Whether you prefer a contemporary look with brushed nickel handles or a more traditional style with brass knobs, we have an extensive selection to complement your new cabinet fronts. We also consider functionality, ensuring that the hardware not only looks good but also feels right and operates smoothly.

Our team at TMAK Restoration is skilled in helping you navigate these choices, ensuring a harmonious blend of materials that will breathe new life into your kitchen.

The Refacing Process: Step-by-Step

The cabinet refacing process at TMAK Restoration is thorough and tailored to ensure the highest quality results. Here’s what you can expect:

Step 1

  • Removal: We carefully remove your existing cabinet doors, drawer fronts, and hardware. This step is done with precision to protect the existing cabinet structures.

Step 2

  • Surface Preparation: Our team prepares the cabinet surfaces for refacing. This involves cleaning, sanding, and making any necessary repairs to the cabinet boxes to ensure a smooth and flawless finish for the new materials. 

Step 3

  • Applying New Material: We then apply the new veneer or material to the cabinet boxes. This process is crucial as it sets the foundation for your kitchen’s new look. We ensure that the application is seamless and the finish is consistent. 

Step 4

  • New Components Installation: The most exciting part – installing your new cabinet doors and drawer fronts. Our skilled craftsmen ensure that each piece fits perfectly and aligns with the overall design of your kitchen. 

Step 5

  • Hardware Installation and Final Adjustments: We install the new hardware you have selected and make any necessary adjustments to ensure everything is functional and aesthetically pleasing. Our team takes the time to inspect every detail, ensuring that the finished project meets our high standards and your expectations.

Post-Refacing: Care and Maintenance

Maintaining your newly refaced cabinets is key to preserving their look and extending their lifespan. We recommend regular cleaning with mild soap and water to keep the surfaces looking fresh and new. Avoid harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners that can damage the finish.

For wooden veneers, occasional polishing can help maintain their shine. It’s also important to address any spills or stains immediately to prevent damage. We’ll provide you with specific care instructions based on the materials you’ve chosen. With proper care, your refaced cabinets will continue to beautify your kitchen for years to come.
