Cabinets are one of the premier features of your kitchen. They impact the overall look and feel of your kitchen so much. Their functionality is crucial as well, keeping your kitchen neat and organized. When cabinets are looking less than desirable, and it comes time to change their appearance, there are a few options available. You can reface the cabinets that you have, paint them, or replace the cabinets altogether. As with most home improvement projects, there are many factors to consider when updating your kitchen cabinets. To help break down the options for you, we’ve written this blog detailing how yo update your cabinets.
Refacing Your Kitchen Cabinets
Refacing is an excellent option for homeowners that don’t want to go through a total kitchen remodeling project. Whether you’ve got classic white, or darker wood cabinetry refacing your cabinets can prevent you from having to tear down your entire kitchen. It’s a lot less costly and won’t have your ordering takeout for a week. A refacing project typically consists of replacing the cabinet doors that you’ve got with the new ones, along with the drawer fronts as well. You can think of refacing your cabinets as “re-skinning” them, changing the look, and even feel of your cabinets without the expensive cost of new cabinets. It’s a cost-effective alternative for those on a tighter budget. The cost of refacing cabinets is typically about 30-50% of the cost of replacing cabinets entirely.
Replacing Your Kitchen Cabinets
Refacing isn’t for every kitchen, though, sometimes a replacement is needed. A replacement is needed once the structural integrity of the cabinet becomes compromised. You can’t simply replace cabinets that are falling apart! It takes experienced contractors to help replace your kitchen cabinets. It’s an important job that needs to be precise. You can opt for a totally different color and style if you replace the whole cabinet. It’s the correct move when you’re remodeling your entire kitchen.
Painting Your Kitchen Cabinets
If your cabinets are still in great condition, but you just want to switch up their color, painting your cabinets is a great option. It’s a cheap job to do in comparison. Make sure that your cabinets are totally clean before painting; otherwise, your cabinets can end up looking worse than before. Consult with a professional before painting your cabinets. Trusted contractors will help you avoid catastrophe with your kitchen. This is a good option for homeowners with a small budget.
