Our Step-by-Step Guide

 

While many people may turn to the professionals for help on a project like this, you can tackle this project yourself. We’ve compiled this general guide to help you learn how to reface a cabinet properly!

 

Prep the Area and Materials

 

After wiping down your bathroom vanity cabinet, remove any doors, drawers and hardware from the cabinet base. If you plan on reusing them, label them so you know where they go later.

 

Wipe down the cabinet surfaces, including doors and drawers, to thoroughly remove any dirt, grease, or other residue. Then, begin sanding to create a smooth surface for the new paint or finish to adhere to.

 

Optional: Apply Primer

 

Before you apply your new finish, you can apply a layer of primer. This will depend on the type of material your cabinet is made of and how you plan to finish it. Be sure to wait for the primer to dry before applying your finish.

 

Apply Your New Finish and Sealant

 

This step could involve painting, staining, or applying a laminate or veneer. Choose a finish that complements your bathroom aesthetic and decor. If you’re purchasing new cabinet doors and drawers, it’s essential to pick a finish that looks the best with your choices.

 

If you are painting, consider sealing the vanity, doors and drawers with a layer of non-yellowing, water-based polyurethane for added protection.

 

Finalize With Finishing Touches

 

When the finish is dry, you can add your doors and drawers to the frame. Make sure you put them in the correct positions. You can also add new hardware, like handles knobs or hinges, to elevate the look even further! It’s an inexpensive, easy way to upscale any bathroom cabinet.

 

Budgeting: Is it Cheaper to Reface or Replace?

 

According to Behind the Hedges, cabinet refacing is “less messy and disruptive” than replacing your cabinetry altogether. Doing the project yourself can save you the most money. The House Digest says cabinet refacing can run as much as 50% less than replacing the cabinets, plus save you energy ripping out the existing base!

 

If you decide to call in the professionals, take note that labor and material costs can add up quickly. If your cabinets are warped or damaged in any way, you may have to consider replacement as your main option to ensure the cabinets can stay functional.
