“We recently hired The Cabinet Dr. Team to restain our cabinets and the front door. The service provided was excellent and our cabinets look as good as new. They were very prompt to come back and do some touch up as needed. Communication was great and they were always on time. Highly recommended!”

Who We Are
Cabinet Makeover Specialists
We make your kitchen look new and wonderful!!! We specialize in Cabinet Makeovers! So what’s in a name? The Cabinet Doctor…because we make house calls and bring sick cabinets back to health. We are able to refinish most kitchens in one or two days. While other cabinet re-finishers take weeks to work on a job, we focus on one job – – YOURS – – until its complete. We have a unique and simple way to accomplish this task, but this our guarantee to you……we will complete the job on time and on budget.
Many of our clients are finding it is very economical to get brand new doors and brand new drawers. This option usually includes new “soft close” hinges, new hardware and updated trim veneers and moldings. We can get you a brand new look without the hassle of tearing your kitchen apart. This can be done at a fraction of the cost of new cabinets. Much of this web page talks about cabinet refinishing…but this new door option is becoming MORE and MORE exciting and popular. NEW CABINETS at a price you can live with. Get the color and style you want – You can never feel sorry about getting precisely what you desire. PLUS we have financing!!!
When you buy a car or a house you get what you want – shouldn’t you have the dream kitchen that is the envy of the neighborhood?
Our most economical way of updating your cabinets is to refinish the existing ones. If they are in fairly good shape and have not been painted with wall paint we can make them look new again. Below are sample of some of the jobs we have done. Our Home Office is in Arizona so if you live near us we can visit you and show you samples. Outside of Arizona – A Cabinet Doctor Certified Affiliate – can come by and show you samples and discuss your project with you!
We Do Hundreds of Kitchen Cabinet Jobs Every Year
A Few Samples Are Shown Below
BEFORE -– Most of the people considering refinishing their cabinets have oak cabinets like these -– sometimes called “honey” oak or “golden” oak – these cabinets are perfectly good , just a little worn, dried out looking and out of style.We take these cabinets and enhance them and bring them back to life. We can either make them have a solid finish that is completely uniform like a high quality, painted piece of furniture or more of a traditional wood stained look. Both techniques produce wonderful results.
AFTER -– This is a sample of a restaining technique called “shading”. The cabinets now have an updated look that’s fresh and beautiful. This job took only 1 1/2 days and it was a total transformation. The Customer was very happy. Notice how these cabinets look stained and still have the variation that gives the cabinet the appearance of real wood. The color is a medium dark walnut.
BEFORE -– The people owned a home with expensive distressed cabinets -and they about ruined these cabinets by trying to do the job themselves – they wanted a rich looking walnut color with lighter highlights – here they stripped the doors down to bare wood and gave up.
AFTER -–We were able to transform this challenging situation into a beautiful cabinet job. This home was a custom, high-end home in the Pinnacle Peak Area. The customers were amazed and grateful to put this “do it your self” job behind them.

Some Other Samples of Our Work
SOLID STYLE – Smooth and Uniform…Many people like the solid look – this is a technique that produces a smooth, uniform appearance much like a fine piece of painted furniture. Still, we do not use paint. Paint looks cheap. Furniture grade lacquer looks rich.
MOST POPULAR – Dark Espresso with highlights – This coffee bean color has been a recent favorite and is popular in homes that are being upgraded or remodeled. This is a shading technique and not a solid style. To See Dark Espresso with no highlights(solid) click here
WHITE – This is very popular and never goes out of style. About 25% of out clients want white cabinets or slightly off-white shades. This is often used to brighten kitchen up a bit. This is a solid smooth finish. Beautiful.
Another shading job. Originally honey/golden colored. The customer wanted the cabinets to match their furniture in a shaded mahogany color.
Antiqued WHITE – This is a premium finish and costs a little more. There are extra steps involved. Many people like this look. This is on maple and is a bit more uniform than on oak. The entire surface is glazed – then wiped off leaving traces on surface and in cracks. Clear coat applied at end.
SOLID COLORS are getting more popular and coming back in style. Here is a cabinet refinished in Library Pewter by Sherwin Williams. You can pick and color you want! see Sherwin Williams Colors
What’s the NEXT STEP ?
STEP 1 – Pick a basic color scheme from the basic color scheme page and decide if you want it gloss, semi gloss or satin – most people want satin. When we start the job we will make a sample board for you before the project starts. So you get what you want. If you are still unsure you can call us and discuss your options.
STEP 2 – Count all the cabinet doors that you would like to have refinished. This helps us to determine the scope of the job and establish pricing. Count all doors – big and small – also the drawers.
STEP 3 – Contact us with questions and we will give you a price right over the phone. We also need to know what type of cabinets you have. Oak has a texture that tends to be a little rough – most other woods or laminates are smooth and have less grain. If you are still just kicking tires and are wondering about price, that’s OK…check out our cost estimator. We will answer any of your questions – we are easy to talk to but if you feel more comfortable using our on-line form click the easy button.
