Should I replace my kitchen cabinets or refinish them? While there are some benefits to cabinet refinishing, the cons often outweigh the pros. Most of the clients we work with opt for replacement cabinets because they provide the best overall results. Let’s take a look at the top five reasons to replace your kitchen cabinets.
The Cabinets Are Damaged
This is a no-brainer reason to replace your kitchen cabinets. The cabinets may have been damaged by water, mold, smoke, termites, or a number of other issues. This is true even for fairly new cabinets. If the previous owner used low-grade materials, they may already have significant signs of wear and tear. That is why we use high-end cabinetry in all of our kitchen remodels, to ensure you get a maximum return on investment.
You Want a Different Cabinetry Style
Your current cabinets may not fit the style of your home or the style you want for the future. You may want a sleek, modern design for your kitchen. You may want traditional cabinetry in a different wood finish than what you have. Whatever your design goals are, there is a cabinetry style out there to accommodate them.
The Kitchen Cabinets Don’t Function Well for You
Every family has unique needs. Your kitchen should align with yours. For instance, you may prefer drawers instead of lower cabinets in the kitchen. You might want a lazy Susan in the corner, rather than a tight cabinet with useless storage. Your existing upper cabinets may be difficult to reach, or your shelves may not be adjustable. All these factors affect your experience in the kitchen.
With new kitchen cabinets, you can choose ideal storage solutions for your lifestyle. If you want a whole wall of drawers, you can have that! If you want floating shelves for your upper storage, you can have that too. Every aspect of the kitchen can be personalized for your needs.
You Need a Better Kitchen Layout
If you’re changing your kitchen layout, it will be difficult to modify your existing cabinets. This is especially true if you are adding an island or changing the footprint of the kitchen. In this case, you will be better off selecting new cabinets that accommodate the layout.
During the design process, we will help you select the best cabinetry for your home, your lifestyle and the architectural features in the kitchen. Example: If you have a large window you want to preserve, we may recommend placing your sink in front of it or creating a prep space with lower cabinets. Even the smallest details can have a big impact on your happiness – and we want you to love working in your kitchen!
