Is refacing right for me and my home?

  Of course that's a question only you can answer, but here are some guidelines.

  First of all, your existing cabinetry must be structurally sound. If it's not, it really makes no sense to give a new face to a wobbly or worn-out structure. 

  Just as important, does the basic layout of your kitchen meet your needs? Not too long ago, most homes were designed with the kitchen closed off from other areas of the home. Today, people like kitchens that are more open, more of a "public space," often bounded by an island or peninsula. If your current kitchen is closed off and you want to open it up, you most likely will have to remove a wall or two, and add some entirely new cabinets. That means Renew's highly-flexible nature is uniquely suited to your project. 

This kitchen took on an entirely new personality with a painted finish.

There are also practical factors to consider. A refacing project often can be completed much quicker than a full remodel, with less disruption to your life. If that's important to you, Renew is a great choice. (For more on full-remodel vs. Renew, click here.)

If you've recently done other upgrades to the kitchen, like new counter tops or flooring, refacing lets you retain them. And if you're hoping to sell your home soon, Renew gives a kitchen or bath an entirely updated look, at a lower total project cost that does not bite off too much precious equity.

What are my Renew choices?
The short answer: pretty much unlimited. Unlike most other refacing options, Renew does not constrain your creative choices. The possible combinations of door style, wood, finish, sheen, and specialty finish options number in the thousands. It's a good bet that you'll be able to express your personal vision perfectly.

Renew offers almost unlimited creative choices.

How do I get started?

  The best way to get your project off on the right foot is to talk it over with a Renew dealer. They're good at this stuff, and will be able to assess your current cabinetry and spaces with a pro's eye. They'll get a feel for your desires and ideas, guide you through the options, and help you realize the full potential of your space and budget. And if you do decide to go the full-remodel route instead of refacing, they can help you with that, too. Find the Renew dealers near you in the Get Started section of the site.
