Refinishing Cabinets vs. Buying New Cabinets

Refurbished kitchen cabinets

Are you considering rejuvenating the look of your kitchen? If you decide to renovate your kitchen, one of the most important decisions you have to make is whether to replace the cabinetry. Replacing cabinets is a significant expense, so it is important to carefully consider whether doing so is necessary.

Do You Need New Cabinets?

When cabinets get completely worn out, it’s time to stop using them. Similarly, if you are looking to give your kitchen an entirely new design, old cabinets might not work anymore. In these cases, a total replacement is probably the best option.

However, if you have well-made cabinets, a fresh veneer, finish, or paint job can give old cabinets a brand new look without the cost or inconvenience of replacing them. Things like hinges and handles can be replaced as needed as well. If your cabinets are still structurally sound, replacing them entirely probably isn’t necessary—a professionally done refinishing or refacing of your cabinets will get your kitchen looking brand new.

Benefits of Refinishing and Refacing Cabinets

  • Refinishing or refacing cabinets is more affordable. Replacing cabinets can often be more than twice the cost of refinishing or refacing.
  • It is a more convenient option. Replacing cabinets takes longer and can often make kitchen appliances inaccessible for days at a time.
  • Replacing cabinets is often needlessly wasteful. Reusing existing cabinets is not just more economical, it is usually a more environmentally friendly choice too.
