Refacing of Kitchen Cabinet Doors

Refacing of Kitchen Cabinet Doors
There comes a time in the life of a kitchen with boxes will need a renovation. After all, are used constantly, day after day, and are exposed to all adverse conditions inherent to a situation of the kitchen, which include heat, grease and moisture. Finally, they will need attention, repair or replacement, but replacing kitchen cabinets is a major expense that everyone can afford. This is when people start to look for other solutions, more economical. Refacing kitchen cabinet doors is an option that is becoming increasingly popular among homeowners.

Refacing your cabinets will give you some options. You can call a professional to come and do the work for you, or you can buy the materials and take on the task yourself. Due to the fact that the work is hard enough work, you can save a lot of money buying and coating materials covering the door and drawer fronts on your own. Maybe you can even ask a couple of friends to help do the job. The first part of the process uses very basic, but time. You must remove all doors and hardware, even if a certain type of electric screwdriver will help you complete the task much quicker.

After removing everything from the frames of the cabinets, you must prepare wood surfaces. Start by removing any loose finish, then sand lightly to remove scale and scratches. Do not sand too much in any area, because it will make a noticeable depression in the wood. You may not want to sand to bare wood, because the adhesive sheets are designed to be used over existing finishes and does not adhere well to the unfinished wood.

To start grinding, first frames. Make each section in its own frame. With a knife, cut the sheet to fit each piece. Be sure to measure carefully. To cover the surface, pull some of the backing paper and press firmly into place. Work slowly and carefully so that all edges match. When you are finished with the frames, you can use the same process on the doors and drawer fronts. No matter if you cover the interior doors to you. You can find photos online that will help you put the sheet correctly.

Once everything is covered, you are ready to replace the doors and drawers and put new hardware or replace with new ones if you want to update the look. As you can see, it's a great job, but there is no reason that if you are working you can not do the work yourself. You will end up with cabinets that will be corrected again even if it did not cost a fortune.
