Cabinet refacing is essentially a replacement of the cabinet "skins"—replacing the doors and drawer fronts and applying a new veneer over the existing surface of the body ("carcass") of the cabinets. The hardware—the hinges, handles, and drawer pulls—are usually also replaced during refacing. 

Instead of spending top dollar on a complete remodel of your cabinetry, refacing will provide a brand new look to your existing cabinets and bring new life to your home.
