There is no hard and fast rule here for estimating cost precisely. This is because it varies according to the materials and hardware you choose, the labor cost, the region you live in, the exact amount of cabinetry you’re refacing, etc. The typical range of costs is from $4,000-$10,000, in the United States, with the average estimated at around 7,000 dollars. On average, refacing cabinets costs about 40% lower than replacing them outright. And it can be even cheaper to refinish with paint or stain your existing cabinets. Refacing the cabinets depends greatly on your choices; for example, laminate material costs significantly less than natural wood.
Hardware choices can have a significant impact on the cost overall as well. That said, the typical ROI (return on investment) for refacing your cabinets can be as high as 75% and extend the life of the cabinets for many years. Generally, it’s always best to get a few quotes to see exactly how much it would cost to hire somebody versus doing it yourself, the cost for various materials, etc. That way, you have all the information you need to make an informed choice for remodeling your home with the most bang for your buck.
