Stock cabinets have a major price increase with improved materials and they will be delivered and installed. The wood is generally ¾ inch hard board face frame and ½ inch particle board sides with hard board framed doors. Since you have a few more choices on finishes or stains, the price can range from $360 to $432 per linear foot or $3,600 to $4,320 for the standard measurements.

It is a few minutes work well spent. Next remove all cabinet doors marking each one is marked as to which cabinets they belong too.

Frameless Cabinets will have the doors meeting the other door and will have drawers against other drawers. Looking at the front of the cabinet, you will see only the door or the drawer not the cabinet box itself.

If you will be buying new hinges for you r cabinet doors you will need to measure the cabinet openings themselves and add the appropriate overlay of the hinge. The most common is ½” overlay hinges. There are 1/4″ and 3/4″ overlays as well. If you are using 35mm European style hinges then these overlays are most often times determined by the mounting plate that the hinge uses. So the part of the hinge that get drilled into the door remains the same and you can set the overlay by using a different overlay hinge plate that snaps into the hinge. There are literally hundreds of different types of European hinges for just about every application. The ones I am referring to here are face frame mounted overlay hinges.

One you have your cabinet door dimensions, you are ready to order your new custom cabinet doors. There are virtually endless styles of doors that can be made. But one of the more affordable types I see requested for quite often in kitchen cabinet refacing is the shaker style door. It is a inset or also called recessed panel cabinet door. These types of cabinet doors can be made from affordable MDF and also a combination of wood frame and MDF center panel for additional saving for those of you that want to paint them. Along with the popular shaker style are traditional raised panel, bead board, and applied moulding doors. There are even solid slab cabinet doors for that clean modern look. Another thing I would like to mention is you can also purchase cabinet end panels that will match your new cabinet doors, these are great for cabinet ends, island ends, or even can be used as wainscoting in areas of the kitchen or other parts of the home for that matter. It give a truly custom look to your finished project. The sky is pretty much the limit when it comes to doors. What you ultimately decide on is what will fit your decor and your cabinet refacing budget.

In planning your kitchen remodeling, the kitchen cabinets will give immediate eye appeal, provide functionality but can also be the biggest cost. Regardless of what your remodel budget is, the cabinet could easily be one half of that expense.

Kitchen cabinet design can be subtle or standout. Whether your find kitchen cabinets online [] or in the stores, let whichever style you choose reflect your personality. Remember, kitchen cabinets are the main feature in a kitchen, so pick the cabinet style that you want to see shine!

Kitchen Cabinets are by and large the core of any kitchen. They can be highlighted by appliances such as the refrigerator, stove, cooktop, dishwasher and microwave, or these appliances can be modified to blend in by using panels that match your cabinets.
