Your cabinet doors play a large part in the style and function of both your cabinets and your kitchen.
As they become old and outdated, you're left with the choice — replace or reface. If you are looking to save a little money, then re-facing is definitely your best bet.
All you'll need is a little plastic laminate and your kitchen will show an amazing transformation for a fraction of the cost of buying new doors.
Plastic laminates are also highly durable, stain resistant and easy to clean. This laminates offer a sleek contemporary look and are a perfect alternative to wood. The only prerequisite is that you have flat panel doors as the laminate won’t stick well to doors with inset panels. Before you begin, strip the doors of their hardware and take them off their hinges.
You want to start re-facing with the sides of your doors since you want to use the face to cover the edges of the laminate creating a nice, clean look. Cut a piece of laminate a bit larger than the section you are going to start with. It is always a good idea to first dry fit the laminate before you adhere it.
Once it is glued in place, the veneer is tough to remove. Spray contact adhesive on t he door and laminate in a thick even coat. And don’t forget to put on a heavy-duty respirator to protect yourself from the fumes.
Let the adhesive setup until it is tacky then apply the laminate to the door running a roller over the laminate to create a tight uniform bond.
Remember, this stuff is pretty sturdy so you will need router to trim away the excess then finish off the edges with a belt sander.
Now it is time to tackle the door face. Again, start by spraying adhesive on the door and the laminate. Here is a little tip for smoothly and accurately placing the laminate. Put a series of round dowels on top of the door and place the laminate on top of the dowels.
These dowels will let you roll the laminate back and fort as you accurately line up the edges. Remember, this glue is strong. So once the laminate is down, it is hard to peel back up.
Once you have the laminate right where you want it, start sliding out the dowels pressing the laminate firmly to the door surface. Now, just let everything dry before replacing your doors. That's it.
The difference is so spectacular your friends will never believe that they are looking at the same kitchen.
