Replace, Reface, or Update?

Cabinetry is a major part of your home, even if they go unnoticed by the people who live there permanently. You tend to get used to the everyday facets of your home, taking them for granted and accepting them as permanent. The problem here is that you can easily accept damaged, out-of-date, or otherwise sub-par cabinets as a given in your home.

Cabinets are arguably the first thing people will notice about your kitchen or bathroom, so even if you don’t notice the problems – they will. Alternately, when you take the time to update your cabinets you will notice what a huge impact they have on your home. Whether you do a complete renovation or a small face lift, improving your cabinets is a step that you will never regret taking.

It seems like a big commitment to change or update your cabinets – and it might be depending on your situation and budget. There are also small and easy updates that you can even do yourself to improve the look at value of your home. Regardless of your situation, home size, budget and kitchen orientation there is a right option for you

Update: Take a look at your cabinets. Are they well-constructed? Is there any structural or functional damage that keeps them from doing their job? Are they built-ins or load bearing in any way? Were they custom made for the space? If your cabinets are well-made, not damaged, and basically in pretty good shape then there is no real reason to remove them. If you simply need to part with the 90s look of your kitchen, then a quick DIY update might be in order. Sand, paint, and replace the hardware for a cost-efficient change that will bring serious “wow” factor to your kitchen.

Reface: If your cabinets are well constructed, custom, or for any other reason cannot or should not be removed, you can still make a major change without ripping out the whole set. Cabinets can be refaced. This means the doors are taken off and discarded, or a new surface is mounted onto the exterior of the cabinet doors. This is helpful if you want to change the material of your cabinets (wood, metal, plastic, etc.) without removing and buying an entirely new set of cabinets.

Replace: If your cabinets are damaged, ill-fitting, made with cheap or less-durable materials, are structurally displeasing to you in any way, or if you are remodeling your home your best option is to replace your cabinets.
