If you are like most people, you spend a decent portion of time in your kitchen every day. There is a reason it is often referred to as the heart of the home. When your kitchen is outdated or the style doesn’t fit your home any longer, it can leave you wanting to make a big change. You have a couple of options as to how to approach this; you can repaint your current cabinets or replace them all together. Ciarlanti Painting – Jeff The Painter is here to talk about each of these options so you can decide which one meets the needs for your kitchen.
Painting Your Cabinets is a Budget Friendly Choice
For those that want to change up the look of your kitchen without breaking the bank, painting your cabinets or re-staining them is going to be the best option for you. When you choose to paint your cabinets rather than replace them, it can save you as much as half the cost that it would if you were to decide to replace them all together. Another option to change up the style of your cabinet after they are painted is to consider changing the hardware as well.
Wood Kitchen Cabinets Work Best for Painting
If you have solid wood cabinets rather than a pressed wood, they are a great candidate for refinishing or painting. When your cabinets are made from a high-quality wood, you don’t have to replace your cabinets nearly as often as you would from a cheaper, low quality cabinet. By refinishing or painting them, you can get several years out of them yet.
Damaged Kitchen Cabinets Need to be Replaced
Unfortunately, there are times that cabinets have sustained significant damage or are made from low quality materials and need to be replaced rather than painted or refinished. If you notice that your cabinets are starting to look warped or have soft spots, you may need to replace them rather than refinish or paint them. If there are only one or two cabinet doors that have damage, you can sometimes get away with only replacing them when you can find the safe style and finish.
Kitchen Layout Planner
There are many kitchen designs out there that are simply not functional. When you live with a kitchen that isn’t laid out in a function design, it makes more sense to replace the kitchen cabinets rather than try to stain or paint them. Even though it costs more to replace them, you will be happier to have a functional layout rather than a kitchen that is eternally frustrating.
