Kitchen Cabinet Refacing in the Bay Area

Refacing Kitchen Cabinets can save you thousands of dollars on new cabinets! With Cabinets Bay Area’s exclusive refacing technique you will have brand-new looking cabinets in just a few days.


What Make Our Kitchen Cabinet Refacing Better?

  • Cabinets Bay Area offers refacing like no other company will–we take the extra step of replacing the existing cabinet face frames with brand new solid wood frames made to the specific dimensions of your cabinets and secure from the back of the frame with pocket screws.
  • While other companies use a thin layer of veneer with wood adhesive to cover existing face frames (a layer that peels over time), we make new face frames  in order to reinforce existing cabinet boxes and create a more solid foundation for new hardware, doors, and pulls.
  • New face frames allow us to make cabinet adjustments in order to update the functionality of your kitchen which can create more space and allow for new appliances.  
  • You can select any wood type for your frames, exterior panels, and doors (ie. Maple, Cherry, Birch, Hickory, Douglas Fir,etc.)
  • This is one of the most cost effective solutions for your kitchen remodel

Since 1985 we have specialized in the Art of Cabinet Refacing. With this unique process we can craft a contemporary or traditional kitchen.
Whether dramatic, or simple elegance, your design can be achieved with the use of solid wood face frames (wood species of your choice) wood veneers, or laminates.
To enhance your storage & ease of use, Custom cabinets, new drawer boxes, & roll-outs can be added to your existing kitchen lay-out.

If you want just want to change the color and the finish of your kitchen cabinets, we highly recommend you our Cabinet Refinishing Service.

Kitchen Cabinet Refacing in Mountain View

Our client’s kitchen in Mountain View, California is a perfect example of how to maximize space. We refaced all of their cabinets, but were able to add and delete cabinets in order to make the kitchen more functional. For instance, the pantry is behind the built-in refrigerator. We also removed some hanging cabinets and a peninsula in order to give the kitchen a more open feel. We added extra cabinets to “dead corners” and created a small but very functional island. This refacing was inspired by the need to save money and to create a new and modern look for their home.

Our Cabinet Refacing Complete Process Step by Step:


Cabinets Bay Area focuses on a specialized technique that allows for a more efficient and durable refacing.  Cabinets Bay Area focuses on 3 distinct techniques for a lasting & beautiful cabinet refacing.

1. Solid for Solid ( face frame replacement )
2. Veneer application
3. Plywood application
Note: all of the above are achieved with wood species of your choice.
Now continue with the best technique

The best technique to use is to replace what we call: “SOLID FOR SOLID.” We replace the entire face frame of your cabinets with solid, new, wood face frames.  You can choose from a wide variety of wood species to change the look and feel of your kitchen.  It is almost like having a complete kitchen remodel without all the expenses.

This specialized technique has evolved over 30 years that Cabinets Bay Area has been working in San Jose and the surrounding cities.  This system allows us to make some adjustments on your cabinets.  For example: we are able to make deeper drawers, we can create a space for lazy-susans, or corner cabinets, and in some cases creating a cabinet above your refrigerator as deep as the refrigerator itself! Replacing the face frames with solid wood frames allows for dozens of ways to customize your kitchen.

The process begins like this:

  1. With our FREE in-home consultation we will be able to examine your cabinets.  With this evaluation we will determine if your cabinets are the right candidates for refacing.
  2. Once the choice has been made to reface your cabinets. We will begin by choosing the type of wood and style of door and drawer that best fits the look and feel you want to create in your kitchen.
  3. A designer will then take precise measurements of your existing cabinets, and during this process we will determine which cabinets will be customized.  You may want to add a lazy-susan to an unused corner cabinet or you may want to add roll-out drawers or deepening your drawers or even pull-out spice racks to your existing cabinets.
  4. We begin to create new, solid, wood face frames out of your desired wood species.  We also order all doors and drawers.
  5. The demolition in your home begins.  We pull off all of the existing doors, drawers, and face frames.
  6. We begin to prep your cabinets for their new look. We cover the bottoms & sides with custom finished 1/4” plywood material, & install your solid wood face frames to cabinet boxes.  WE DO NOT USE VENEER IN ANY PART OF THIS PROCESS. THIS IS A VENEER-FREE TECHNIQUE. (With over 30 years of experience, we have first-hand knowledge that with time veneer WILL peel, bubble, and eventually come off, thus solid wood is the only way to go.)
  7. We install the appropriate sized crown-molding to all upper cabinets and base molding around all the lower cabinets.  Always trying to use at least 2/3” wide for the upper cabinets.
  8.  Install drawers on undermount, self-closing, full extension slides.  Roll-outs will be installed on self-closing, full extension glides.
  9. Install all doors on European, self-closing, hidden hinges. Install all drawer fronts.
  10. Enjoy your beautiful, new refaced kitchen.
