Both refacing and replacing bathroom cabinets can be beneficial, depending on your unique circumstances. Here are a few things to consider about replacing or refacing your bathroom cabinets.


An option to spruce-up your bathroom is to replace your cabinets. It is the most expensive choice. If there are structural problems with the cabinets, such as dents, holes, or broken doors, replacing might be the best option. If the only problem with your existing cabinets is the look of the outside finish, it may not be your best option.


The other option is to simply re-face the exterior. It is inexpensive and simple. Once you have sanded the finish, apply paint or stain. Many people are surprised by the results which can be achieved by refacing the outside of their bathroom cabinets.
