Kitchen cabinets are one of a great kitchen’s main components and are one of the first things people notice and remember long after they visit your home.
Once replacing your kitchen cabinets, you can either reface, repaint, or simply remove the old cabinets from your kitchen and install new ones.
Without making any decisions, you need to weigh several variables and an expert’s opinion to decide which one is best suited to your preferential and budgetary needs.
To help you decide, here are some of the most essential things you need to know about refacing, replacing, and painting kitchen cabinets at your home.
- Refacing your kitchen cabinets
The easiest way of refacing is replacing new cabinet doors and drawer fronts of your existing cabinets.
The face frames are then covered with veneer or wood stain of your choice.
- Replacing your kitchen cabinets
Replacing your kitchen cabinets can solve rusting issues of metal cabinets and structural issues in your kitchen cabinets.
- Painting your kitchen cabinets
Painting your kitchen cabinets is the cheapest option – it is possible to save 60%-70% when you choose to paint your cabinets yourself compared to completely remodeling your entire kitchen.
It can also be done much faster but is a less convenient and risky option – especially for those who lack the skills and expertise.
