Painting, Refacing, or Replacing Kitchen Cabinets; Which Option is Right for You?

Are your outdated kitchen cabinets marring your enjoyment of the room? If so, consider remodeling options for kitchen cabinets that take antiquated fixtures from drab to fab with ease. This fairly quick and straightforward option for giving your kitchen an on-trend look may be as simple as adding a coat of paint, but cabinets with dated styling may require a bit more effort with refacing. However, if you want a totally fresh option, replacing outdated cabinets by using our kitchen design service in Bucks County may be the makeover your home requires. If you want help deciding which option works the best for you, read on to discover some of the pros and cons of each one.

Painting Kitchen Cabinets

In terms of time and cost, painting kitchen cabinets proves to be an attractive solution. Supplies required for this project are typically just sandpaper for giving your old paint or stain a good once over and paint and brushes to refresh your kitchen cabinets’ paint job. Keep in mind, however, that painted and stained cabinets do have some downsides as they draw dust and grease more than refaced options, so you usually have to clean them more frequently and pay more attention to maintenance.

Refacing Kitchen Cabinets

Refacing kitchen cabinets means replacing all of the front-facing portions, such as doors, drawers, and hardware. Typically taking just a matter of days, refacing is less expensive than replacing your kitchen cabinets as it leaves the basic structure intact and focuses more on cosmetic issues than the actual build. Be aware that refacing kitchen cabinets requires existing fixtures that are already in great shape. If portions aren’t in good shape, you likely need to replace your kitchen cabinets rather than refacing them.

Replacing Kitchen Cabinets

Replacing kitchen cabinets takes more time than painting or refacing, but the benefit is that you have entirely new fixtures that match your room’s overall look. Whether your cabinets have water damage, mold, or issues with closing, replacing them lets you start fresh. Another consideration includes keeping or making room for appliances that you plan on replacing or adding.
