Should You Refinish or Replace Your Kitchen Cabinets?

Making updates to your kitchen is one of the easiest ways to increase home value but when it comes to your cabinets, making the decision to replace or refinish them can be overwhelming. With a lot of requirements that need to be met and taking into consideration the function and aesthetic of your space, the decision becomes much more difficult.

Refinishing Wood Cabinets

If your cabinets are in good shape and you like the current layout of your kitchen, refinishing your cabinets is a great option! Outdated cabinets will instantly look new by simply refinishing them with a new paint or stain color and by simply switching out the hardware. If you currently have solid wood cabinets, these are a solid candidates for refinishing (think maple, cherry, hickory, or oak) and this project can save you thousands of dollars and avoids a major renovation.

Replacing Kitchen Cabinets

If the kitchen cabinets in your home have significant damage, they will either need to be completed replaced or if possible, repaired before being refinished. This type of damage includes warping, water damage, and mold – covering up these issues is only a temporary solution! Another reason you would want to replace your kitchen cabinets is it you are adding on an addition to your kitchen or if the layout of your current cabinets does not work for you and your needs.
