Cabinet Redooring – Making Your Kitchen Cabinets Look Brand New

Upgrading your cabinet doors and hardware is one of the most cost effective ways to make your kitchen feel more updated. It’s not as time consuming as a full blown renovation, and it can be done in just a few hours! It can make a huge difference in the overall appearance of your kitchen. This is especially true if you’re tired of the original knobs and pulls. It’s also a great option if you’re trying to achieve a farmhouse style in your kitchen.

Another easy way to update your cabinets is by changing out the hinges that attach the doors to the wall. This can be a little more time consuming than just swapping out the doors themselves, but it can still be completed in just a few hours. It’s worth it to me for the added functionality that comes with being able to open the cabinets wider, and I’ve found that Schoolhouse hardware holds up really well over time.

If your cabinets are in good shape, you can also consider refinishing them. If you have wood doors that are starting to show signs of wear, it’s a relatively simple process to strip them down and stain them darker. A few coats of polyurethane will give them a nice sheen and make them look brand new again. This is a much cheaper option than buying and installing new cabinets, and it will save you the hassle of disposing of your old ones.

While refacing is a very popular option, there are many things to consider before investing in this project. Unless your existing cabinets are in great condition, you’ll likely end up with a lot of waste from the process. If they’re built from cheap grades of particle board, it’s very unlikely that the glue used for refacing will be able to hold up to the water and humidity in your home.

In addition, refacing is usually the more expensive of the two options, and it’s important to keep in mind that it will not cover up any scratches or dents on your cabinet boxes. Lastly, it’s not recommended to try to reface or redoor cabinets that are inset or have a flat-front style. This type of cabinetry covers almost all of the face frame and can cause warping over time due to moisture and temperature changes in your home.

Whether you choose to reface or redoor your cabinets, both of these projects can make a significant impact on the look and function of your kitchen.
