Summer is the perfect time to tackle your kitchen remodeling and tidying projects, and many homeowners have cabinets on their to-do lists. While many homeowners worry about the cost of replacing cabinets and others put off the project altogether, it’s important to keep in mind that refacing is often an option. As long as your cabinets are structurally sound, you should be able to reface the cabinets in your Severna Park kitchen. How can you tell whether or not you should replace or reface?
Replace Your Cabinets
Replacing your cabinets involves completely removing the cabinets currently installed on your walls. The new cabinet installers will level your base cabinets and hang wall cabinets with new doors and hardware. The finished product is totally new and less difficult than refacing what is already there. The most critical part of replacing cabinets is properly leveling the base cabinets. However, a cabinet replacement for your Severna Park kitchen will cost much more than refacing the cabinets. It’s best to save cabinet replacement for when you are remodeling your entire kitchen, changing the layout, unable to structurally use your cabinets, or when they are damaged.
Reface Your Cabinets
Cabinet refacing is often a fantastic option for homeowners who do not have as much money to invest in their cabinetry. The doors and hardware will be removed from your existing cabinets and new drawer faces and doors will be installed. Next, the installer will replace any damaged drawers or elements for a fully upgraded cabinet. The cost is about 40-50% less than the cost of replacing the kitchen cabinets altogether. It’s great for updating cabinets that are otherwise in great shape, when you don’t have as much money to spend, or when you love your current kitchen layout but just want to spruce it up.
