Refacing kitchen cabinets might be “superficial,” but the results and savings are dramatic.
Refacing your kitchen cabinets includes covering the exposed frames with a thin veneer of real wood or plastic laminate.
Doors and drawer fronts are replaced to match or complement the new veneer.
How do you fix peeling laminate cabinets?
Slide a corner of sandpaper between the laminate and substrate, and gently scuff up the wood or particle board. This will remove any excess adhesive and make it easier for the new adhesive to hold the laminate in place. Squirt a small amount of waterproof adhesive between the substrate and the laminate.

What is the difference between cabinet refacing and refinishing?
Cabinet refinishing involves removing the existing cabinet doors and drawer faces, sanding or stripping off the old finish, and applying a new paint or stain to the doors, drawer faces, and cabinets. As a result, cabinet refinishing or refacing are more affordable, quicker, and less disruptive than replacing cabinets.
