Replacing Kitchen Cabinets
If your kitchen cabinets are structurally sound and physically appear to be in good shape, refinishing or refacing them could be better options rather than replacing them all. Cheap kitchen cabinets are usually made with press-board, which is comprised of ground-up sawdust, and may show physical signs of deterioration if the edges appear to sag. This can signify structural instability, and replacing your cabinets may be necessary - and may prove more economically feasible in the long run.
If you dislike the layout or design of your cabinets, replacing them is most likely the only option to fix this.
About Kitchen Cabinet Refacing & Refinishing
Refacing primarily includes replacing doors and veneers on the existing structure of the kitchen cabinets. This can be a more economically viable option compared to replacing the cabinets, but only if they are structurally sound - otherwise, replacing the doors and drawers will serve little purpose if the structure is falling apart.
Refacing is a reasonably difficult task for novice craftsman or new homeowner, so hiring someone to professionally reface your cabinets may be necessary. This can make refacing a pricier option if hiring outside help is required, so it may not be the best idea if you're on a tight budget.
Refinishing Can Be the Best Option on a Budget
To change the appearance of your kitchen cabinets, refinishing is usually the best choice on a tight budget. Refinishing is only worth the time, effort, and money if your existing cabinets are in good condition. Refinishing includes paint stripping, staining, painting, and/or sanding.
If your current kitchen cabinets are aesthetically unappealing, they can always be freshened with a new coat of paint to make them look newer, or for their color to better suit the kitchen's desired color scheme or ambiance. The hinges and knobs can also be replaced to change the appearance.
