Cabinet Refacing (or Kitchen Refacing) is the process of removing the exterior cabinetry (such as cabinet doors, panels, trim and hardware) replacing it with new doors to give your kitchen a completely new look without the added expenses of replacing the cabinet boxes and all the additional work that can come alongside a typical kitchen remodel (Unfinished flooring, repainting newly exposed walls, rerouting appliance outlets, etc).
In 2015, IKEA replaced their AKURUM system of cabinets with a new system of cabinets called SEKTION. Both systems are very similar in appearance, but there are many differences that are easy to miss. This can be especially frustrating when trying to replace doors for your AKURUM system with new SEKTION doors.
The IKEA AKURUM kitchen was discontinued in early 2015 with door fronts for the cabinet system being discontinued in October, 2015. After nearly 20 years in the market AKURUM doors had vanished to coincide with the release of the new SEKTION system taking its place.
Redecorating your room to accommodate a new style but it's clashing with your wardrobe cabinets? Instead of purchasing a brand new wardrobe, consider saving on your budget by purchasing replacement cabinet doors, or having your current wardrobe doors repainted to match your new look.
As a homeowner, you have many choices when it comes to sprucing things up. There are so many colours, textures and products to choose from, it can feel as though you have a dizzying array of selection. If you’re making changes to cabinet doors, one of those choices you may come across is choosing between Thermally Fused Laminate (TFL) -- which is known sometimes as Thermally Fused Melamine (TFM) -- or Thermofoil doors.
What is the difference, though? While the two are similar in some ways, they have distinct features.

As an interior decorator or designer, you know that the kitchen is one of the most important rooms in a home. It is a high-traffic area and families tend to congregate there to plan and make delicious meals. However, when it comes to designing the perfect kitchen, it’s easy to blow your clients’ budgets and force them to make decisions that may end up sacrificing the room’s sense of style. If that’s the case for you, this guide will help you make design decisions that will make the room stylish without making any design sacrifices -- and tell you how to do it inexpensively.
Consider the following scenarios: Your clients have just moved into a new home but find that they can’t live with the colour and style of their kitchen cabinets. Or maybe they’ve built their own home and just find that the kitchen cabinets aren’t jiving as they thought they would with the rest of the house. Or maybe they’ve lived in their home for awhile and are starting to get sick of the kitchen.
In any event, if you want to update the style of a client’s kitchen cabinets without making drastic changes to the room where they prepare food, refacing the cabinets and drawers may work for them. It’ll just take a few days and they’ll have an updated look without much hassle of the cost of installing new cabinets.
