Many people worry that refacing kitchen cabinets cost is going to be too high to make it worth it. But I think as long as you plan ahead and do it right then it can actually be pretty inexpensive. What I would do is lay out a comparison chart and compare refacing kitchen cabinets cost with what it would cost to replace them entirely. Most likely you will find that refacing them is cheaper. now, you can do the work yourself which can be cheaper, but at the same time it could cost you more if the job takes too long.
