What to Do with the Kitchen Cabinets?

You can save money when you have your cabinets refaced instead of replaced. However, you want to make sure that your current cabinets are structurally sound before you do so. Here are some things to look for when trying to decide what to do with the kitchen cabinets.

It doesn’t matter if you want to simply spice up or kitchen or you’ve decided to throw everything out and remodel the whole thing; the cabinets are one of the biggest decisions to be made. Bringing in new ones can cost up to half of the budget you have set aside for the renovation of the entire room. However, you don’t want to replace what isn’t broken. Sometimes, you cannot afford to add more storage units or by the ones that have fancy styles and enhanced features. You can, however, make sure that the ones you have look great.

Many homeowners are able to save a good bit of money when the decide to choose re-facing over replacing. There are three ways that this can generally take place. First of all, you can have them repainted or refinished. Second of all, you can install new wood over the existing drawer or cabinet fronts. Finally, you can install brand new fronts and doors only. Choosing between the three typically is a matter of how much money you have. No matter which method you choose, you can ensure that the final touch looks complete when you replace the hardware. Knobs can make a huge difference in the overall style for your kitchen and be the key element to tying everything together.

When you go with re-facing, you might want to consider sprucing up the inside as well. You can sand or paint in order to provide a new look. You can even add a little bit of functionality to the traditional style you may have in place. Re-facing can not only reduce the amount of stress that you feel toward renovating the kitchen, but it can also save you a good deal of money. Re-facing can also reduce the time it takes to complete the renovation.

Re-facing isn’t not the right choose for all kitchens, and it is important that you keep this in mind. Before you decide to reface over replace, you need to consider a few things. The first thing is the condition your current cabinets are in. If they are low quality, it might make better economic sense to go ahead and replace them while redoing the rest of the kitchen. Make sure that you look for any type of damage done on the inside or outside before you decide to keep the ones you already have installed. If their bad, replace them. Finally, think about how old your kitchen is. Things age, and as they do they break. You don’t want to spend your money re-facing cabinets that have outlived their lifespan.
