While you could certainly replace your old cabinets with new ones if they seem old and worn out, there is really something to be said for refinishing your current kitchen cabinets. As many people realize, your kitchen and kitchen cabinetry can dramatically improve the value of your home. This doesn’t mean you need to spend a fortune on your cabinets in order to accomplish the goal.
Refinishing your current cabinets, especially if they are in good conditions structurally, can be the best way to get a new look. It can improve the overall feel of the kitchen, make the kitchen seem bigger and improve the value of your home. The cost for doing this is far less than replacing the cabinets all together and a good contractor could do the job fairly easily in a shorter amount of time than replacing the cabinets.
Another reason you might want to consider refinishing your cabinets is to keep the original charm of the kitchen. If you have an older or classic home, you may want to keep the original look of the home by simply updating the cabinets with a new finish, paint and maybe hardware to get a combined look of modern day with classic charm.
“You may also want to consider refinishing your current cabinets if you need to complete the work fast and if you want to get a look that is more fitting the style of the rest of the home,” said Collins Tile & Stone, a provider of bathroom and kitchen remodeling in Virginia. “If you want a more modern feel paint, stain and knobs can do a great deal for the look. Hiring a professional to refinish your cabinets can bring them up to date and help you to compliment the overall look of your entire home without spending a great deal of money on completely starting over in your kitchen.”
