Refacing Versus Replacing Kitchen Cabinets
There are still situations when refacing isn’t the right option. If your kitchen cabinets aren’t high-quality wood, we may recommend replacing the cabinets over refinishing them. If they’re too worn to refinish and reface, it may make sense to spend your money on a new, high-quality solution. You’ll have the opportunity to optimize the layout of your space as well. There are other considerations when deciding whether to refinish or replace cabinets. If your current kitchen layout just doesn’t function for you, you may want to consider adding additional cabinets or replacing them entirely. Anytime you need a major redesign or layout change for your kitchen, replacing your kitchen may make more sense.
