Remodeling a kitchen is one of the biggest project that a homeowner can undertake.
A successful renovation requires a significant investment of time, effort, and finances on the part of the homeowner, but can lead to some incredible results. When it comes to one of the largest kitchen renovation projects, the kitchen cabinets, it’s important to realize that a total remodel isn’t your only option. In many cases, refinishing your cabinets can accomplish the same goals as a total remodel, allowing the cabinets to fit better into your overall kitchen design scheme without completely replacing them.
If your kitchen cabinets are in good shape, still functional, and fit into the desired design plan of your kitchen, then refinishing them may be a cheaper and better option for you than replacing them. Refinishing your cabinets and staining them a new color can drastically alter the appearance and overall feel of your kitchen cabinets, helping them to appear fresh and new. Updating the hardware on your cabinets can also help to accomplish a fresh look for your kitchen without a full renovation. Opting for a refinish can potentially save you thousands of dollars as well as the headache of replanning and replacing your entire cabinet setup.
There are times when refinishing cabinets is not a viable option. Cabinets that have significant damage from chipping, mold, or water will need to be replaced. In many cases, these types of damage can warp the cabinets and compromise their longevity and integrity. If your cabinets have significant wear or damage, you will need to opt for replacing them, rather than refinishing them. Replacement should also be considered if the overall layout and design does not fit your vision for your kitchen space.
A kitchen renovation requires thoughtful planning, vision, and research. Make sure to assess the layout of your cabinets, their overall wear and tear, and level of damage before deciding whether to refinish them or replace them. If you aren’t certain which option is the best for you, make sure to consult a professional to assist you in making your decision.
