You want to update your kitchen but don’t want the hassles or expense of a renovation. What if you could upgrade to a fresh, new look inexpensively and quickly–in one to two days? You can. Just replace your cabinet doors. You’ll be amazed at the difference Kitchen Tune-Up’s redooring service can make!
What Is Redooring?
The name says it all: we change the cabinet doors and drawer fronts, installing new ones to match your current cabinet frames (or “boxes”). Thanks to our huge selection of doors and drawers, you’re sure to find colors to match your current cabinet boxes and fresh styles to upgrade your kitchen so it looks like new! If you need new hinges, we’ll install them too. New door handles and drawer pulls are the final touch on the transformation. Redooring is quick and easy.
Don’t confuse redooring with another popular kitchen cabinet upgrade, refacing. In refacing, we attach new veneers to the cabinet boxes, changing their look. Then we add matching doors and drawer fronts. With redooring, the boxes stay as they are. Your terrific new doors and drawers do the work of taking your kitchen cabinets from blah to beautiful.
Is Redooring Right for My Kitchen?
With lots of options for upgrading kitchen cabinets, how do you know if redooring is the best one for your kitchen? You could choose refacing, or a full remodel with new cabinets, or painting your existing cabinets. Why pick redooring instead?
- You like the current color or finish of your cabinets.
- You’re tired of the style of your existing doors and drawer fronts.
- The cabinet boxes are sturdy and in good shape.
- You’re happy with the layout of your kitchen and don’t need to change cabinets’ locations.
- The budget is limited. Redooring saves you up to 75 percent of the cost of replacing current cabinets with new ones.
- Your time is limited. Redooring takes only one to two days once the Kitchen Tune-Up team is in your home. You can change the whole appearance of your kitchen in time for a holiday gathering or dinner party.
- You don’t want the mess and hassle of installing new cabinets. With redooring, you can use your kitchen normally through the entire process. That’s not always an option with a full remodeling job!
- You like eco-friendly options. By keeping your cabinet boxes on your walls, you’re keeping them out of landfills. Redooring reduces waste.
Find Your Perfect Doors
Choosing just the right doors for your existing boxes is easy! Kitchen Tune-Up has over 30 years of experience working with cabinet companies. Those connections give us almost unlimited choices of door styles, sizes, woods, and colors. Oak, maple, cherry? We’ve got them, and more. Classics like white, or today’s trendy colors like sage or gray? They’re here too. Popular, versatile Shaker style doors, or raised panel doors with a timeless traditional look, or modern slab-style doors–you’re bound to find a style that works with your cabinet frames.
Our Door Catalog, a unique resource just for Kitchen Tune-Up customers, gives you a taste of what we can do. We’ll work with you to match your cabinet boxes even if you don’t see your exact match in our catalog. And you don’t have to guess at the outcome. You can use our online Design Tool to visualize just how your cabinets will look when we’re done.
Can I Redoor my Cabinets by Myself?
You can pick doors from a DIY store or online and install them yourself–some homeowners do! But working with Kitchen Tune-Up has benefits. You get a larger selection of door styles and colors than most home improvement retailers can offer. Our experts install the doors and drawer fronts quickly and efficiently, and clean up before they leave.
If you’re a do-it-yourselfer, and want to change the color of your cabinets, we can provide color-matched paint so you can paint the frames yourself. Then we’ll add your chosen doors and drawer fronts on your painted boxes. This option works well if you like a white- or bisque-colored kitchen. Of course we’ll also add new door handles and drawer pulls to create a polished look.
Remember, if you want a bigger change, check out our refacing service. Refacing adds new veneers to the cabinet boxes to match new doors. Refacing takes a little longer than redooring–three to four days in most cases–but as always, Kitchen Tune-Up cleans up each day and leaves your kitchen usable.
If swapping your current cabinet doors for new ones sounds like the cost-effective change you want, contact your nearest Kitchen Tune-Up today.

Kitchen Tune-Up makes homeowners’ dreams of beautiful, convenient kitchens come true. Sometimes all a kitchen needs is a fresh, clean look to seem transformed. If you like your current cabinets but want to change the color, or want to cover wear and tear, painting might be right for you. Here’s how cabinet painting works when you partner with Kitchen Tune-Up.
How Does Kitchen Tune-Up Paint My Cabinets?
First, we remove all your cabinet doors and drawers and whisk them away. We take them off-site to save you mess. We clean away built-up grime and residue and fix minor dings or defects. Then we prime and paint them. Back at your house, we clean, prep and paint the cabinet boxes. We bring back your freshly painted doors and drawers and install them, adding new hinges if needed. As a finishing touch, we can add new handles and knobs for a polished, modern look. Your cabinets will look like new after this affordable, easy transformation. The whole process takes about a week.
Is Painting My Best Option?
Painting is just one of the expert services Kitchen Tune-Up offers. How do you know which service to choose? Ask yourself:
Are my cabinets in good condition? This is always question No. 1, no matter what type of kitchen cabinet service you choose! Sturdy frames are essential to any upgrade that uses the existing cabinet boxes, whether you plan to add new doors or paint the doors you already have. We can help you assess whether your cabinets are good candidates for painting.
Do I like the style and placement of my current cabinets? If you want to keep your kitchen’s familiar layout, you don’t necessarily need new cabinets. If your cabinets’ style is still appealing and you just want a change of color, painting is a good option.
What’s the material? The most common cabinet that homeowners want painted is oak. Be aware: The heavy wood grain of oak and some other types of wood can be challenging to cover completely. Are you OK with that? If not, consider other options like refacing or redooring your kitchen cabinets.
How long do I need this upgrade to last? Painting does a great job of perking up your whole kitchen’s appearance! But we’ll be frank. Kitchen cabinets are in constant, daily use, increasing the probability that paint will show nicks and scratches over time. A kitchen cabinet paint job is a solution that lasts about two to five years. If you need a cabinet upgrade that lasts longer and is tougher, investigate our other services like redooring, refacing, or–if you have wood cabinets–our Original Tune-Up to recondition discolored or grimy wood surfaces.
What is my goal for this cabinet upgrade? Maybe you’re already planning a bigger update to your kitchen but aren’t quite ready for the disruption or the cost. Painting is a good choice to tide you over if you want a quick, inexpensive improvement before you take on a full remodel or refacing.
Painting kitchen cabinets is also an inexpensive option if you plan to sell your house and want to make the kitchen more attractive for prospective buyers. You might not want to invest in remodeling dinged or outdated cabinets, so painting might be your best choice.
Isn’t Painting a DIY Job?
Painting kitchen cabinets sounds like a simple project! Anyone can handle a brush, right? But we all know how do-it-yourself projects can gobble up more time and expense than we anticipated. When Kitchen Tune-Up paints your cabinets, you get these advantages:
- You don’t have to figure out the right paint for the job or spend time and money shopping for paint and tools.
- There’s minimal mess. We prime and paint your cabinet doors and drawers off-site. You won’t have any half-painted or wet doors sitting around your kitchen! We also clean up when we leave each day, so your kitchen is as usable as possible while the work’s going on.
- The job is finished in about a week.
- You get Kitchen Tune-Up expertise and troubleshooting. We do this all the time. We’ll be honest with you if painting isn’t right for your cabinets.
How Will It Look?
You don’t have to guess at how your painted cabinets will look. Use our virtual Design Tool to visualize your cabinets wearing their new color. Choose a virtual kitchen layout closest to the look of your own kitchen, then experiment with different colors on the cabinets with just a few clicks. You can try out other changes too. How would new flooring look? What about a new color on the walls as well as the cabinets? Would a kitchen island fit? Play with your kitchen’s look, without having to commit a dime!

Your kitchen has lost its lustre. It has gone from sleek or stylish to drab or dated. Or perhaps you are a homeowner looking for a sure way to boost your asking price. In any event, you know your kitchen could use a refresh. The question remains – do I go for a cabinet refacing or a redooring of my kitchen cabinets?
Should I Get My Cabinets Redoored or Refaced?
In both cabinet refacing and cabinet redooring, you keep your existing cabinet boxes while replacing the more visible aspect of your cabinets. To decide which service you need – refacing or redooring – you need to consider which style of cabinets you have.
In this style of cabinetry, the doors completely cover (or nearly cover) the entire surface of the cabinet. To give full-overlay cabinets a new revitalized look, there is no point in refacing (since the faces of the cabinets are not visible). Instead, consider cabinet redooring where your cabinet doors and drawer fronts are replaced with new ones, color-matched to blend nicely with your existing cabinet boxes.
Partial Overlay Cabinetry
In this style of cabinetry, the doors only partially cover the cabinet face frame. If the wood is worn or damaged, or you simply want to give your kitchen a brand new look, you don’t necessarily have to do a complete overhaul of your cabinets. Cabinet refacing allows you to keep your existing cabinet boxes while changing the doors and the veneer of the cabinet face frame.
In this style of cabinetry, the doors sit inside the cabinet face frame openings. This style is associated with Shaker, Craftsman, or Mission style cabinetry.
With inset cabinets, so much of the cabinet face frame is visible that a simple redooring is unlikely to leave you satisfied whereas a cabinet refacing will give your cabinets a complete makeover.
And the Winner Is?
Regardless of the overlay on your cabinets, most cabinets can be either redoored or refaced and comes down to your personal preference and expectations. While redooring works best for full overlay and swapping your original doors for a matching new door (think white to white), you do have the option to paint your cabinet boxes to match the new doors. By painting your boxes to match, you will save on material and labor cost over refacing, but you have to have the expectation that a painted cabinet box will not have the same look and feel as a veneered box. By painting you will lose out on any wood graining feature and will show wear overtime, where refacing will not.
The best solution is to talk to the experts at Kitchen Tune-Up so they can explain the difference between the two services and they can help you decide what is best for your space and budget.
