Kitchen Cabinets – Should We Reface, Replace or Paint?

Kitchen cabinets serve a very special purpose in today’s modern kitchen. Aside from their practical function as storage units, kitchen cabinets are also the centrepiece in this particular part of the house as they are often the first thing that people when they enter the kitchen space. This is why it is important to give your kitchen cabinets ample attention; to ensure that they remain useful and aesthetically pleasing for the years to come.

When your kitchen cabinets start to look worn-out and unattractive, or simply look too boring and dull for your current kitchen theme, then you know it’s time to either replace them or give them a much-needed facelift. Regardless, each of these methods will cost you at different price points, so before you decide of whether you will reface, replace, or paint your existing cabinetry, you first need to know how much are you willing to spend for the project.

Obviously, the most expensive option to spruce up your kitchen cabinets is to replace them. New kitchen cabinets can cost you around $12,000-$20,000 depending on the size of your kitchen. This price range may or may not include the service fee of having the cabinets delivered to your house, so you also need to take that into account when you choose this option.

That being said, if your budget is on the lower end of the spectrum, you can either choose to reface your cabinets in the kitchen or just give them a fresh coat of paint. These two options are very popular these days. However, they also have their own pros and cons, so you also need to consider them first before you decide which method is the best fit for your needs and budget.
