Kitchen Cabinet Refacing is an economical alternative to replacing kitchen cabinets. We at Ideal Cabinet Refacing has been transforming kitchens across Boston MA area and surrounding towns into dream kitchens since 1999.


Cabinet refacing is a quick and hassle-free way to give a great new look and feel to your outdated kitchen. We simply replace all the existing doors and drawer fronts with a door style, wood species and finish of your choice. We apply a matching real wood veneer to all exposed end panels and face frames of your existing cabinets.

Best of all, Ideal Cabinet Refacing can do this in just 3 to five days! Refacing your kitchen cabinets instead of having new cabinets installed provides stunning results and will put money in your pocket.

There is no limitation when refacing kitchen cabinets. If you need a wider space for a larger refrigerator, remove or add more cabinets for added storage, we can reconfigure your cabinets. We can also modify the cabinet above the stove to add a microwave. If there is enough room, we can add a pantry or an island. Once the cabinets are refaced the new and old cabinets will look exactly the same.

New cabinets are custom built for an exact fit, no fillers needed. We can also add pull-out drawers for easier access to stored items.

Installing a new kitchen can be a daunting project, it is disruptive to family lifestyle. Even the best-planned construction project can obstruct the normal use of your kitchen for 1- 2 months or more.

Legal Research and Writing
  • What's the cabinet refacing process - what's involved?
    First you select new cabinet doors from our wide variety of styles and finishes. Then, we get to work! Our methods have been proven over the years and have set us apart from our competitors. We begin by removing and discarding your old cabinet doors and hinges. Then we strengthen and repair cabinet frames where needed. The next step is to carefully prepare the exposed frames to ensure a solid bonding. This may include sanding the frames. Next, we laminate all exposed frames with a matching wood or laminate, depending on the door material you've selected. Our special "two-part bonding system" includes the use of a special manufacturer-recommended glue, which, when applied to both panel and frame, ensures a unique bond. Finally, we conclude with the installation of your new cabinet doors, drawer fronts and hardware.
