Most homeowners will be able to use this process to transform their kitchen into something brand new and unique, but there are some stipulations. For example, cabinet refacing can only be done when the cabinetry within the kitchen is in good condition. If you have any broken cabinets, fix them before attempting this project.

There are several reasons why you should consider this project. Those with decent cabinets and some time on their hands will benefit in several ways.
