Cabinet refinishing means you simply change the color or finish of your cabinets. There are multiple ways to accomplish this, from hand sanding to using a chemical solvent to take off any existing finish on your cabinets and then apply your stain or finish of choice.


Cabinet resurfacing, or refacing, is different from cabinet refinishing and is much more involved. Cabinet resurfacing is where you will keep only the framework of the cabinets, replacing everything else, from the side panels, moldings, and cabinet doors, in order to achieve your desired look. Resurfacing cabinets allow you to have almost brand new cabinets. You can change out the type of wood, the color, the doors, and the hardware. Usually the framework that you do keep is resurfaced with another material as well.


You cannot refinish cabinets that are laminate or thermofoil cabinets as these materials cannot be sanded down. This means whatever you try to use, such as paint or other substance, won’t adhere to the cabinets.

If your cabinets are made of wood, you can either invest in cabinet refinishing or resurfacing.


Cabinet refinishing is the more affordable option to make your kitchen or bathroom cabinets new again without replacing them entirely. Next up is cabinet resurfacing, which due to the extent of the work being done, is a bit more expensive. Ultimately, it all depends on what you are looking for in new kitchen or bathroom cabinets.
