Back To OLD SCHOOL Refacing

Do you want the old world look of hand crafted custom kitchen cabinets without the expensive price tag?  Most will agree that you can only achieve that when real high quality wood products are used.

By old school I am referring to the use of real wood cabinet refacing products rather than synthetic materials commonly thought of when you hear “refacing.” Nu-Look Kitchens is “old school”, using exclusively actual real wood refacing products to deliver what most folks would like but think they can’t afford. Our goal is to deliver truly high quality results that you can be proud of at a very affordable cost.










There are several companies who provide imitation wood materials in place of the genuine article probably in order to be priced competitively. For example, a couple of close friends who reside on the other side of the country had their kitchen cabinets refaced with what they thought was real cherry wood only to discover that it was not authentic.  To their dismay, what was sold to them as real cherry wood was actually a plastic material called Thermo-Foil. Thermo-Foil in some applications might suffice for the purpose of changing the look of a kitchen but, any way you slice it (no pun intended), it is not the real deal.  One more fact about Thermo-Foil is that it may have the look of real wood but what you are seeing is a photograph of wood grain adhered to p.v.c plastic (you’ve heard of its use commonly in plumbing).  This makes up the plastic sub straight material which is then laminated to the doors, drawer fronts, molding etc.

When natural products are used, the difference is very noticeable. Natural wood products provide a very distinct appearance because every tree is different.  Climate, location, and even soil type where the tree is grown all have an impact on the wood harvested to create cabinet doors and other parts that go into the construction of your cabinets. The resulting variations provide the unique look of natural wood which transfers to a one-of-a kind new-look kitchen.

If you desire the beauty of a kitchen that is truly memorable, my best advice is to settle for nothing less than “old school,” natural wood.
