Should You Refurbish Or Replace Your Kitchen Cabinets?, Mountain Home, Arkansas

Kitchen cabinets not only play an important functional role in the high-traffic room, they also contribute significantly to its aesthetic. If you are preparing for a kitchen remodel project and are wondering whether to reface or replace your current cabinets, read on. There are numerous factors to consider before you make your decision.

Should You Replace or Reface Your Kitchen Cabinets? 

When to Reface

Refinishing your cabinets helps you save on your kitchen remodel, especially if you are funding an extensive home remodeling project or want to invest in another kitchen feature such as an island or granite countertops. A refacing project also saves time because there is no need to remove the cabinets’ contents and sacrifice kitchen use for several remodel

Other reasons to reface instead of replace include liking your current kitchen layout and the cabinets themselves. High-quality wood looks brand new with the right paint or staining products and hardware to instantly improve the look of your kitchen. Veneer coverings are yet another refacing possibility.

When to Replace

Perhaps your kitchen remodel vision includes a complete makeover of the space from top to bottom and you have the budget and time to make it happen. Maybe the current floor plan is too cramped or inefficient, or there is unused wall space extra cabinetry would easily fill. It is also a good idea to replace rather than refinish your cabinets if they are so damaged no paint or stain can save them. Rusting metal cabinets, for example, should be replaced, as should cabinets that are out of frame due to house settling issues.

Poor wood quality is yet another reason to replace your cabinets, especially if you intend to put your home on the market in a few years. The kitchen is one of the rooms in the home that sways buyers one way or the other.
