Whether you are looking to love the kitchen in the home you have or are looking to sell, a beautiful updated modern kitchen is the way to go. Cabinets can make a huge impact on the overall aesthetics of your kitchen, and for a room that is usually the heart of the home, it’s worth evaluating if you need to replace or refinish your cabinets.
2 Reasons to Replace Your Cabinets
- You should replace your kitchen cabinets if there has been significant damage to them. This might include water damage, mold/rot, warping, etc. Basically anytime the actual cabinet material has been compromised, they should be replaced.
- You should replace your kitchen cabinets if the physical layout of your kitchen doesn’t flow. Have you ever thought, ‘I don’t have enough cabinets’ or wished for cabinets to be in different spots? Then replacing is your best bet.
While replacing cabinets is typically more expensive than refinishing, it’s a must if your cabinets are worn out or aren’t functional. Remember, cabinets should have excellent craftsmanship so that they can be durable and stunning with a spectacular layout.
2 Reasons to Refinish
- You should refinish your kitchen cabinets if they are high-quality wood, like cherry, maple, or oak, and are less than 10 years old. Not only will refinishing help you be a little more eco-friendly, but refinishing means less downtime than a full remodel and can save you a lot of money.
- You should refinish your kitchen cabinets if the layout of your kitchen is functional. If the set-up of your kitchen is ideal, then refinishing is a great choice. You can easily dress up doors, drawer fronts, and even frames can get a spruce!
Refinishing is an affordable way to give your kitchen a face-lift with a wide range of new colors and new stains. You can also pick out new hardware to give your kitchen that luxurious feel without going over budget.
