Reasons To Refinish Cabinets Over Replacing Them

Kitchen cabinets are a major investment for a good reason. They need to be high quality, durable, and flawlessly designed to ensure that their doors and drawers work as they should. Cabinets often require skilled workers to not only construct them, but to then transport and install them. When all is said and done, it takes a lot of people and a lot of time to get cabinets from the fabricator and into your home. It’s no wonder why now more than ever, many homeowners are opting to refinish their cabinets rather than start from scratch. There are plenty of reasons why this has become a popular choice. If you’re planning a kitchen remodel, consider these benefits before you commit to replacing your cabinets altogether.


It’s no secret that kitchen cabinets are expensive. In fact, oftentimes, a good chunk of a kitchen budget is devoted to them. Having your existing cabinets refinished can result in major cost savings for your project. Even with the cost of labor and materials to have it done, it doesn’t come anywhere close to how much you would spend on a brand-new product.

Easier to Manage

Kitchen cabinets can require quite a bit of lead time between ordering them and having them installed. This not only means that your whole project could be delayed until you can get the cabinets in, but it means that other contractors will need to try to schedule around the arrival of your cabinets.

More Convenient

Having new cabinets installed can have a big impact on the footprint of your kitchen, if not your entire home. By having them refinished, you don’t have to worry about as much of a mess or intrusion in your home.


Having cabinets replaced can be a timely and an expensive process. There are plenty of headaches you can run into along the way, which is especially frustrating for something you’re investing so much money into. Refinishing existing cabinets can be a far less stressful process for you and everyone in your home. It allows for a seamless renovation while saving money at the same time, making it a win-win for your home and your wallet.
