Kitchen Cabinets, Should We Reface, Replace Or Paint?
Kitchen cabinets are one of a great kitchen’s main components and are one of the first things people note and remember long after they visit your house.
Once replacing your kitchen cabinets, you can either reface, repaint, or simply remove the old cabinets from your kitchen and install new ones.
Without making any decisions, you need to weigh several variables and an expert’s opinion to decide which one is best suited to your preferential and budgetary needs.
Here are they:
- Refacing your kitchen cabinets
Refacing enhances the appearance of your kitchen cabinets 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 must look for expert installers to set and level your base cabinets.
- Painting your kitchen cabinets
Painting your kitchen cabinets is not a recommended option to modern cabinets that have laminate fronts since sanding and painting those will only end in bad results.
And even on a wood surface, putting the wrong type of paint could still lead to warping and peeling particularly if the surface wasn’t prepared correctly.
If you really are planning to paint your old cabinet, you must check with a reputable contractor to make sure you properly prepare the area and use the correct type or kind of paint.
