Do You Need New Cabinets? Here’s What to Look For

New Cabinets

New cabinets can revitalize your kitchen. Learn what to look for that may indicate your old ones need to be replaced.

If your kitchen is the center of life in your home, it’s understandable that you should want it to be the most beautiful room in the entire house. For those who are looking into a kitchen remodel or have recently bought a home with a kitchen that is out of fashion, the cabinets might be one of the first things you look at fixing. In some cases, refacing may be all that is needed to freshen up the look of the cabinets and make them look as good as new again. However, there will be times when a quick fix won’t be enough. Solutions for your kitchen cabinets should be taken with the long-term picture in mind. You might need to invest in new cabinets if you find these problems.

The Old Cabinets are Cheap

It’s true in many other areas of life, but especially with kitchen cabinetry: you get what you pay for. So if your kitchen is currently stuck with cheap cabinetry, no amount of care in refacing will make them look good again. However, this means that you can take great care to ensure that your new cabinets are of a higher quality so that they last a lot longer than your old cheap ones!

Damaged Structure

Superficial markings can usually be remedied through refacing, but internal structural damage is usually unsalvageable. This would include any damage resulting from mold, water, or pests like termites. Structural integrity is necessary for cabinets to be usable, as well as keep you and your family safe from the potential danger of them collapsing. If this is the case, it would be useful to identify the source of the structural issues and remedy it before having your new cabinets installed.

What’s that Smell?

Old cabinets tend to absorb bad odors right into the wood over the years. Unfortunately, bad odors are next to impossible to completely remove from the old wood, so it is more efficient to simply have the old cabinets replaced with new ones.
