Replace vs. Reface Your Cabinets

Kitchens are the most common focal point for people in need of a remodel. We spend so much of our life in our kitchens, and they affect our entire families.

Not only do we live so much of our lives in there, but we also give our kitchens the most wear-and-tear. They need updating and fixing more than any other area in our home, too.

Kitchen cabinets can grow rapidly out of date, and they can need some serious work to bring them back into the current century. There are so many different ways to go about a kitchen update or remodel. Tiny updates can take 20 minutes with some rearranging, and can be completely free. New decorations can be as inexpensive as $20 and only take an afternoon.

Refacing your cabinets is definitely a cost, but it’s a less extreme option that will still completely change the look of your kitchen. And finally you can spend a lot more money and time on a total and complete kitchen remodel, taking care of cabinets, appliances, extra space, and more. How do you know what’s right for you?

Rearranging or Redecorating – Are you generally happy with your kitchen? Do you have enough storage space? Are your kitchen cabinets in good shape? Is your budget small or nonexistent? If so then a simple deep clean, rearrangement, and a little redecorating could make a major difference in your kitchen.

Refacing Your Cabinets

Refacing your cabinets is an excellent option if you love your kitchen’s layout and are happy with your storage space, but your kitchen is really out of date and needs some help.

Refacing your cabinets is also the best choice for a dramatic change without breaking the bank. If your cabinets are in good shape but a little out of date, refacing with stains, paint, or new hardware can make a serious difference.

You can hire a cabinet expert to reface your cabinets, or if you have skill and confidence it is definitely a DIY project that can save you some money.

Replacing Your Cabinets

If your cabinets are incredibly old, warped, damaged, or dysfunctional then replacing them is the best option. This is especially true if you have an old or oddly shaped kitchen with poor storage space. Replace your old cabinets with custom cabinets and reap the benefits of a kitchen that works for you. Custom cabinets are built to specifically fit your exact kitchen dimensions, and to meet the day-to-day needs of your family.
