Looking To Update Your Kitchen Cabinets?

N-Hance Wood Refinishing of Ann Arbor, MI can give new life to your cabinets, renewing their natural beauty or updating them with a more modern look. Refresh your current finish, go for a deeper color, or change the look of your cabinets completely. Our technicians follow a specific set of steps to transform tired and outdated cabinets into modern versions with style. We offer a gorgeous, factory-style finish that’s designed to withstand years of wear and tear.

Cabinet refinishing is the most convenient and affordable option when it comes to updating your kitchen. The complete process takes place in your home and does not require the removal of your cabinets. Refinishing can be completed within a few days and is much less expensive than cabinet replacement or refacing. We are the #1 cabinet refinisher in the USA!

First, we clean your cabinets, removing whatever has accumulated over the years—food, grease, fingerprints, wax, you name it. We patch up any dings and smooth out whatever blemishes were hiding beneath that chipped finish. After repairs come priming, to ensure the stain gets a good hold on the wood. With tons of cabinet refinishing color options, your cabinets can go from white to dark, to red to brown, or anything in between.

Whatever you’re loving, we can create it for you at your Ann Arbor, MI home. If you don’t know which cabinet refinishing stain to choose, maybe head to Gallup Park or Bandemer Park and take a cue from nature.

After applying the stain of your choice, we seal everything in and use our Lightspeed® ultraviolet curing system for an instant finish. We get the job done right.

Don’t Replace.

Cabinet replacement is a large-scale kitchen renovation that carries the largest price tag between refinishing, refacing & replacing. For this process, your existing cabinets will be removed and replaced with brand new cabinets.

You can make significant changes to your kitchen layout and adjust the number of cabinets you have. Replacing your cabinets offers you new possibilities, but it is not a cheap option. According to current market trends, the price of a standard full kitchen renovation costs around $50,000. Of course, various factors will affect that price.

Don’t Reface.

Refacing your cabinets involves completely replacing the existing cabinet doors, fixtures and visible surfaces with a new face or veneer. Some cabinet refacing projects can take as long as five days, and that’s not even including the week or more it can take to order the doors and veneers. This works well for homeowners who want a new shape for their cabinet doors and drawers but don’t have plans to change the existing kitchen cabinet layout.

If you plan to reface your cabinets, you can expect to pay somewhere between $10,000 and $15,000. The final cost will ultimately depend on the size of your kitchen and the various options you choose.

Wood Refinishing – Done Right

Cabinet Refinishing is an innovative process that costs much less than cabinet replacement or refacing.

Our third service is perfect for those who feel like they need a bit more of an upgrade but don’t want to spend the big bucks. Cabinet refacing lets you keep your current cabinet boxes and replace just the faces—in other words, those outdated doors. Whether you love Shaker style, glass-fronted, beadboard, slab, arched, or something else, you’ll have an entirely blank canvas available.

Now, we know what you’re thinking: “New cabinet doors mean installation, painting, and staining—so you’ll be in my kitchen for days!” Thankfully, that’s not the case.

We often paint and stain new cabinet doors offsite in our workshop, which means we won’t be in your way at all. Installation is fast too. Our onsite tasks are no different from our other services, where we clean, prep, and finish the cabinet boxes to match the luster of new doors.

We’re completely happy to match the new doors to your current stain if you love it. Not all things need to change! New doors, old color—it’s a great combination. If you want to go for a dramatically different color, we can do that too.

As always, we finish your cabinets in our proprietary clear coat and cure it instantly with our Lightspeed system. Satin, matte, gloss—take your pick.

Our process is typically 1/3 the cost of cabinet refacing and 1/5 the cost of replacing your cabinets.

N-Hance takes a unique approach to the cabinet refinishing process. Our products and techniques are made specifically for kitchen cabinets. Thanks to our comprehensive research and development, we possess preparation & finishing methods that give our projects optimal effectiveness, efficiency, and durability.

Step 3: Apply Finish

  • We “remove the grain raise”, which simply means making the wood smoother, and remove contaminates.
  • Sealer is applied
  • For a color change, we spray 3 to 5 coats of stain on each piece. (With color shift jobs, color coats are applied by hand.)
  • Cabinets are then dried (often with a fan).
  • We polish the cabinets before adding a finish. This is also known as burnishing. Here we remove dust and debris on and around the cabinets. We use our unique cleaning solution to clean the surfaces.
