Refacing is a way to refresh the look of your cabinets instead of replacing them. This, of course, will save you money. Even if you only have basic carpentry skills, you can do a nice job on refacing your own cabinets.
To reface your cabinet you can buy a kit. The kit contains doors, drawer fronts and wood veneer covering for the sides. You can also replace hinges and other parts of your cabinets.
Repair, replace or adjust hinge screws. If the door to your cabinet has swing problems, you many need to repair or even replace the hinge mounting screws.
Repair damaged cabinets. Cut a new piece of wood from the same species and fasten it to the cabinet. Use glue, screws or dowels. Sand it to match the original, or retouch it so that it blends with the cabinet.
