The N-Hance Cabinet Refacing Process vs. the Traditional Approach
When your cabinets are old, worn-out, or chipped, you might think it’s time for a total renovation. But the reality is you can get better results with our cabinet refacing in Elmhurst, Schaumburg, Naperville, and surrounding Chicago areas.
With our cabinet door replacement service, we offer a wide range of styles and options to choose from to replace your existing cabinet doors. While your cabinet boxes remain in place, we replace the doors and drawer fronts to a new style, so your kitchen looks and feels like new, at just a fraction of the cost of a remodel.
How Our Cabinet Door Replacement Works
With a complete renovation, a contractor will come in to remove and dispose of your old cabinets, replacing them with new ones. Oftentimes, though, existing cabinets get replaced with ones made from inferior products, which are therefore lower in quality.
The truth is your cabinets probably still have years of life and use in them. They simply need to be refreshed. That’s where N-Hance’s cabinet refacing in Elmhurst, Naperville, Libertyville, Barrington, Schaumburg, Highland Park, and surrounding areas comes in.
We offer cabinet door replacements that will leave your existing cabinet boxes in place and replace the doors and drawer fronts. You’ll have a wide selection of cabinet door styles to choose from, so your kitchen can quickly transition from outdated to stylish. We offer many stylish design options that can be paired with a variety of wood types, stain or paint colors, finishes, and specialty options.

The wood you choose can have a big impact on the final look of your kitchen cabinets. Wood comes in numerous shades, grains, and densities, which means colors and stains appear differently depending on the type.

What Steps Are in the Cabinet Refacing Process?
With N-Hance of Chicago, you’re not only getting an approach that’s easier and more affordable, but completely innovative too. Our process for cabinet refacing includes:
- Consultation: We will work with you to learn about your needs and your preferences and also educate you on your options. From start to finish, we’ll help you make decisions, large and small, that will lead to a beautiful end result.
- Preparation: Our team will mask and drape your project site first to ensure your home is kept safe and protected from stains or damage. You don’t need to sweep or do anything other than clear the countertops, empty cabinets and drawers, and lead the way to your kitchen.
- Cleaning & Patching: Current doors and drawer fronts are removed. We then use a proprietary cleaning solution to ensure there aren’t any contaminants, like grease or wax, on the cabinet boxes that could prevent the color or stain from adhering. If there are any dents or scratches on the cabinet boxes, we will repair and fill those in, as well.
- Priming: Before applying a new paint color to your cabinets, they will be primed with primer specially designed for cabinets. The application of primer will help to ensure proper adhesion with the final paint color you have chosen. It also prevents bleed-through and creates a superior, even look.
- Protective Finish Application. Finally, the N-Hance technician will add a layer of our Protective Clear Coat Finish. N-Hance’s Lightspeed® process instantly cures the coating, meaning there is no drying time. The technician may also apply a second coat of finish in order to ensure that your cabinets are well-protected and look new for years to come.
- Color Application: We will apply the paint or stain color you have chosen using a color match system where we match your approved sample to the work being completed. Cabinet doors and drawer fronts are typically completed at our offsite workroom. We’ll use the same technique at your home to update the cabinet boxes.
- Protective Finish: We then apply our Lightspeed® clear, protective coat to seal and cure cabinet doors, drawer fronts, and boxes.
- Installation: Once the color application stage is complete, your new doors and drawer fronts will arrive at your home, painted, finished and ready to be installed. We can then install any cabinet pulls or handles you prefer.
- Inspection: Once the process is complete, you can inspect your new cabinets with one of our technicians to ensure you’re completely satisfied..
