Laminate cabinets are a popular option in modern kitchens, and for good reason. When compared with other materials, such as wood, laminate is often more affordable and easier to maintain. However, when laminate becomes damaged or begins to peel or blister due to age or heat exposure, it can quickly become an eyesore. In these situations, homeowners often wonder what their options are. Can you change laminate cabinets without having to deal with the hassle and expense of a full replacement? While some options, such as refinishing, aren’t possible with laminate cabinets, there are indeed more affordable and efficient updates available.
Refacing Laminate Cabinets
Cabinet refacing is perhaps the best option for homeowners who want to change their laminate cabinets. Typically, this process involves:
- Removing cabinet doors and drawer fronts while leaving cabinet boxes in place
- Applying a laminate or veneer over your existing cabinet boxes
- Installing new doors, drawer fronts, and hardware
By leaving the cabinet boxes in place, refacing requires far less labor and fewer materials, which significantly shortens the timeline and reduces costs. Most importantly, cabinet refacing can make your laminate cabinets look brand new. However, it is important to keep in mind that the quality of refacing materials varies widely, as does the workmanship of the companies that install them. Choosing the right company can mean the difference between enjoying a beautifully updated kitchen that looks great for decades and cabinets that quickly begin to peel and blister, bringing you back to square one.
