Can you reface cabinets a second time?
Correspondingly, how long does cabinet refacing last?
Many older cabinets are made of solid wood, and these can make great refacing projects, producing cabinets that will last another 20 years or more.
Also question is, is it cheaper to refinish or replace cabinets?
Refinishing these hardy cabinets, instead of replacing them, can both conserve wood and money. Opting to refinish, rather than replace, kitchen cabinets is more cost-effective, too; Ballard says it can save you up to $5,000. Of course, if your cabinets aren't wood, refinishing may not be an option.
Metal kitchen cabinets are difficult and expensive to replace outright. However, if you want to improve and change the overall appearance of your kitchen or other part of your home with metal cabinets, you can easily replace the facing material on the cabinet in order to achieve a new look.
