Kitchen Cabinets, Should We Reface, Replace Or Paint?
Kitchen cabinets are one of the main components of a great kitchen, and are one of the first things people notice and remember long after visiting your home.
Once you have replaced your kitchen cabinets, you can either reface, repaint or simply remove the old kitchen cabinets and install new ones.
You need to consider multiple factors without making any decisions, and the advice of an expert to determine which one is best suited to your preferred and budgetary needs.
Here are they:
- Refacing your kitchen cabinets
Refacing enhances your kitchen cabinet appearance without wasting your time and money on buying new cabinets.
- Replacing your kitchen cabinets
When you have decided to replace your existing kitchen cabinets, you need to look for expert installers to set up your base cabinets and level them up.
- Painting your kitchen cabinets
Painting your kitchen cabinets is not a recommended choice for modern cabinets with laminate fronts because sanding and painting would result in bad results only.
And even on a wooden surface, if the surface was not prepared correctly, putting the wrong type of paint could still lead to warping and peeling particularly.
If you’re really planning to paint your old cabinet, you’ll need to speak with a credible contractor to make sure you’re preparing the area properly and using the right kind of paint.
