If you want to update your bathroom without breaking the bank, cabinet refacing can be a great way to transform your space. Refacing is a cost-effective option that offers stunning results. Are you ready to achieve a fresh, modern look in your bathroom without the expense of a full remodel? Here are some design ideas and a few installation tips to transform your bathroom with cabinet refacing.
Find a Design That Is Uniquely You
Before you even start planning your bathroom remodel, it’s important to consider the design of the space. You have a few options. You can choose a style that complements your existing fixtures and decor, or you can use your new cabinets to set the tone for a refresh.
We know that choosing just the right bathroom cabinets can feel like a daunting task. There are so many styles and color options, where do you start? One way to narrow your choices is to use the Granite and TREND Transformations 3D design tool. Select a bathroom that closely matches your space and start plugging in different cabinet options. This will help you quickly and easily narrow down some color choices.
While we strongly recommend trusting professional contractors for your cabinet refacing, we know some people love DIY projects. So here are a few tips if you want to try tackling cabinet refacing on your own:
- Measure your cabinets carefully to ensure your new doors and drawers fit properly.
- Remove all hardware and clean your cabinets thoroughly.
- Apply adhesive to the back of your new cabinet doors.
- Carefully position the new facings on the old doors.
- Use a nail gun to secure the new doors in place.
- Reinstall new drawer fronts and hardware to complete the refacing process.

We all love the idea of remodeling our kitchens. But let’s face it, there is a ton of waste that comes with a complete remodel. What if we told you there was a way to achieve your dream kitchen…and do so sustainably? Refacing countertops is a more environmentally friendly option that reduces waste and energy consumption. Below, we’ll explore how countertop refacing is the more eco-friendly overlay choice.
After replacing your countertops, the old ones usually get sent to a landfill. They will sit there for potentially hundreds of years before decomposing. Refacing countertops allows you to keep the existing structure. You are simply updating the surface. So less waste is generated. And the best part is that any materials removed can often be recycled or repurposed.
Reduced Energy Consumption
Complete kitchen renovations can be energy-intensive. They require the use of power tools, transportation, and heavy machinery. By refacing your countertops, you can reduce the amount of energy needed to update your kitchen. Refacing typically involves less demolition and installation work, so fewer resources are required to complete the project.
Many countertop refacing options consist of natural materials (granite) or sustainable options (recycled glass). These materials are often more environmentally friendly than other popular options like laminate. And using sustainable materials in your home can help reduce your carbon footprint, lowering the overall environmental impact of countertop refacing on the environment.
Refacing your countertops will also increase their lifespan. Opting for long-lasting, durable materials and maintaining your new countertops properly will ensure they last for many years. That means fewer resources are needed to replace them.
Granite and TREND Transformations is proud to offer multiple beautiful countertop materials suitable for refacing. To see how our granite, quartz, and recycled glass countertops may look in your kitchen, open our new 3D design tool. And if you need more guidance or inspiration, our design team is here to help.

If you’re planning to reface your countertops, you’ll need to consider which type of countertop overlay material is best suited for your needs. The good news is that there are many options available these days. Understanding the pros and cons of each will help you narrow down your choices. Let’s take a look at some of the different types of countertop overlay materials available for refacing.
This timeless choice is popular for good reason. It is a low-maintenance and durable material. The quartz countertops at Granite and TREND Transformations are handcrafted, can withstand heat, and offer a non-porous working surface. The downside is, while quartz countertops are stunningly beautiful, they don’t offer a wide range of colors. So if you hope to add a unique color to your kitchen, this option may not be for you.
A natural stone that is always a popular choice for kitchen countertops, granite is available in a wide variety of colors. Our durable, engineered granite is finished with ForeverSeal®, our proprietary technology that ensures your new granite countertops will never need resealing. However, granite does have a unique pattern. So another material is better if you’re going for a solid look.
Laminate is a cost-effective option for those on a budget. It’s available in many colors and patterns, including designs that mimic natural stone. Laminate is easy to clean and maintain and resistant to stains and scratches. The downside of laminate is that it is easily damaged by heat.
At Granite and TREND Transformations, we carry a gorgeous line of eco-friendly, recycled glass countertop options. They are produced from a combination of post-consumer glass and semi-precious stones to create unique colors and designs. The only downside is that this line won’t give you the classic look marble and quartz countertops are known for.
Granite and TREND Transformations offers exceptional quartz, granite, and recycled glass countertops! Feel free to add any of these surfaces to our new 3D design tool to see how they will look in your home.

Is your kitchen ready for an upgrade, but you aren’t sure where to begin? Why not start with the main showcase of your space—the cabinets? Stylish, updated kitchen cabinets are one of the essential elements of a modern kitchen. Finding a style, aesthetic, and color you like can set the tone for your entire kitchen. Thankfully, there are countless options available to choose from. Below we explore kitchen cabinet color trends that will help you achieve stunning modern cabinets.
Opt for a Sleek, Classic Look
Styles and popular color palettes change rapidly. But some classic choices will never go out of style. You can set a lovely neutral tone for your entire space when you select white or gray kitchen cabinets. Both options are versatile and work well with a wide variety of design styles.
Add a Touch of Drama
Black kitchen cabinets offer a sleek and sophisticated look that can add a touch of drama to the space. They work well with many colors and materials. So you can create a gorgeous monochromatic look with this kitchen cabinet color trend or contrast them with other elements in the kitchen.
Add a Pop of Color
Of course, you don’t have to settle for the tried and true cabinet colors. You can breathe fresh life into your space with a pop of color. Blue and green kitchen cabinets are both great choices. And the best part is that there is a tremendous range of shades to choose from with both colors.
Two-tone kitchen cabinets offer a perfect way to add contrast and depth to the kitchen. Use them to create a focal point or highlight specific areas like the island or pantry.
The best part is that you don’t need to demolish your current cabinets to pursue your design goals. Granite and TREND Transformations offers kitchen cabinet refacing services to help you achieve your dream kitchen. Cabinet refacing is even available for outdoor kitchens!
