The Savings!

According to Better Home and Garden, removing and replacing existing cabinets in a standard sized kitchen could cost anywhere between $15,000-$45,000. Now compare that with the cost that HomeAdvisor.com found that showed the average homeowner paying around $6,600 to refinish their existing cabinets. That’s a huge savings!

Refinishing Cabinets

Refinishing cabinets involves a process of bringing a whole new look to the doors and front drawers of your cabinets. At A Dash of Splash you can bring in the doors and drawer fronts to work on them alongside Marianne, while the base of your cabinets can be refinished at your home. Think of refinishing cabinets like giving them a much needed facelift, and there are a ton of great ways to do it! Here's a quick list of some of the things you can do while refinishing your cabinets:

  • Paint
  • Glaze
  • Distress (light or heavy)
  • Stain or re-stain to change
  • Add raised stencils
  • Add textures
  • Add trim to change look
  • And so much more!









Refinishing your cabinets is a great way to save some money while giving your bathroom or kitchen a facelift. It’s a cost effective alternative to pulling down old cabinets and installing brand new ones. Even if you feel like your current cabinets are too dated to be refaced, give A Dash of Splash a call at (217) 855-7123 for a consultation to see if refacing them might be able to bring them back to life. 

Not only is refinishing your cabinets less invasive on your living or working space, it’s also a more affordable option, with homeowners spending on average about $6,600. Refinishing cabinets is also much more eco-friendly than a full cabinet replacement because you’re able to produce much less waste by keeping the layout and structure of your cabinets the exact same. While you’re in the process of refinishing your cabinets, you could also take it as an opportunity to do a few other upgrades to your kitchen. 

How much time does a typical cabinet refinishing take?

Even though your cabinet refinishing could depend on the company or designer that you hire, a typical cabinet refinishing job could be done in as little as 2-4 days. Since this is a quick process and it’s much less invasive than full cabinet remodel, you’ll also be able to continue to use your current cabinet space while they are being refaced. So you won’t have to clear out all of our cabinet storage areas to do this project! That saves you quite a bit of time and frustration.

Replacing cabinet hardware.

The handles, knobs, and other hardware you choose will go a long way to help bring in the new look of your cabinets. There are a lot of very affordable options available, which makes the hardware for your cabinets one of the least expensive parts of the entire refacing project. You can find a variety of low-cost options, starting even less than $5 per cabinet handle at Home Depot, Lowes, or other local hardware stores. If you do want to add a bit of luxury, you can always opt for some of the more ornate handles and knobs which could cost around $15 each. But if you’re not sure which direction to go, A Dash of Splash can help you find the best option for your style and your budget.

Private & Group Custom Workshops

Whether it's for a birthday party, a special celebration, or just to finish that decorating project you've been putting off, you can take advantage of a private or group custom workshop with Marianne to learn your favorite decorating and refinishing techniques. These workshops can be tailored to the specific needs in your work and living spaces. A few of the techniques in your workshop could be:

  • Faux stone finishing
  • Faux limestone finishing
  • Concrete finishes
  • Dimensional stenciling
  • Chalk paint decorating
  • Refinishing cabinets, tables, chairs, and other wood pieces
  • And so much more!​
