How to save the kitchen cabinets you have now- You can save thousands on a kitchen remodel by refurbishing your cabinets and it's the green way to go. To be fit for reuse, the cabinets must work with your layout, and the units must be plumb, square, and sturdy. Delamination, either from peeling veneers or plywood layers coming apart, is a sign that the cabinets are too far gone. Assuming the cabinets are structurally sound, they can be refinished or refaced. Here's how.
10 Smart Remodeling Tips From Amy Matthews: If your cabinets need an update, consider refacing or resurfacing them rather than replacing them.

Refurbish what's already there, and you'll get a whole new look while saving a bundle. From DIYnetwork.com
