Interior Design Trend: Refinishing Cabinets

A popular trend for refreshing your interior is refinishing cabinets. Create and Construct is sharing with us how to bring out the best in what you already have!

Anyone remodeling their kitchen has the choice of either fully replacing or only refinishing their existing cabinets. If the existing cabinets are in good enough condition, refinishing them gives the option of an affordable facelift.

A home-owner may decide to refinish their existing cabinets when, for example, they are still in good condition but the doors are out of date or they want to go for a different style, color or finish. With interior design trends ever-changing, this solution allows for home-owners to keep their kitchen up-to-date without necessarily needing to have the disruption of a full remodel.


Cabinet doors are generally going to age quicker than the interiors because of simple wear and tear. Re-facing or refinishing existing cabinet doors also allows for a quicker solution than replacing the entire cabinetry. This can be a great solution for people who want to bring a new look to their kitchen, but may only have a short amount of time to do so. Replacing the cabinets fully can take 4-6 week, whereas refinishing cabinet doors can take 3-4 weeks.


The Create and Construct team of expert designers and contractors offer the initial on-sight consultation free of charge. They will send out one of their specialized cabinet designers to evaluate the state of the existing cabinets, and ascertain your design and budget expectations.


Updating the hardware on your existing cabinets is also a great way to give them a fresher look.
