Do Your Cabinets Need Replacing (Or Just a Fresh Coat of Paint)?

Everyone wants their home to feel current and comfortable. If the cabinetry in your home feels out of date or needs work, both of these things will suffer. Plus, the value of your home may end up significantly lower if/when it comes time to sell.

Built-in cabinetry is often found in kitchens, bathrooms, and some living spaces such as man caves, reading rooms, living, and dining rooms. One popular interior home remodeling option is to improve the state of cabinetry throughout your home.

The three main ways of freshening up a cabinet are through painting, refacing, and replacing. Let’s take a look at each of these options.

Painting the Cabinets

When your cabinets are in good condition, a fresh coat of paint may be all you need to spruce them up. When it comes to color options, the sky’s the limit. Currently on trend, however, are darker and moodier hues in a matte finish.

But don’t pick up your paint brush just yet! Unless you are an experienced painter, this is a job better left to the experts. Painting on cabinets can leave streaks and brush marks. As cabinets are a high dollar item that affect the value of your home, you don’t want to do anything that will diminish their value. Contact a professional contractor about how to carry out this task. If the project is too small for them, they will have the right contact information for a reputable home painter.

Reface the Cabinets

If your cabinets are in great condition but the wood shows some wear, you can reface them if you still want the natural wood appearance. Once again, this is not a project to take on yourself unless you know what you are doing. For this home remodeling project, a renovation contractor is advisable. You will be able to choose from many finishes and the results will instantly add value to your home. Choosing a finish that also appears elsewhere in your home will show consistency, a quality that many house buyers are looking for.

Replacing Your Cabinets

When the cabinetry in your home is in poor condition or too outdated to revive, you may want to consider replacing the cabinets. For this home construction project, seek a remodeling contractor who can help you from start to finish. When replacing cabinets, you can even reconfigure the layout of your existing kitchen or bathroom to completely change things up.

When choosing new cabinetry, choose a style that will stand the test of time and isn’t a fad. As cabinetry is expensive, you do not want to have to replace it anytime soon simply because it is outdated. A home contractor will work alongside a team of architects and designers to provide you with a timeless yet trendy cabinet replacement.
