If your cabinet boxes are in good shape but the outside is dated or falling apart, why replace the entire cabinet? This makes sense in so many ways. After all, you may consider it equally ridiculous and wasteful to buy a new car simply because your present car needs a paint job. Cabinet refacing is always less expensive than the usual cabinet demolish-and-replace process. With only the bare minimum of materials being sent to the landfill, it is also the greenest way to revitalize your cabinets, short of painting them.
