Cabinet Replacement: The Pros And Cons
For many homeowners who have never heard of cabinet refacing, full cabinet replacement will be the first option to come to mind. This process involves tearing out the existing cabinets in their entirety. These old cabinets are then tossed and entirely new cabinets are installed.
This option is excellent if you want to change the entire layout of your kitchen. It will allow you to completely redesign your space and implement any new appliances you wish. It also is appropriate in situations where your existing cabinets are truly beyond repair (i.e. rotting wood, sagging frames).
The biggest drawback to full cabinet replacement for most homeowners is the price tag. Because you are replacing the entire structure, you will spend quite a bit in both materials and in installation services. Another con to this process is that it is extremely involved, which means your kitchen space will be out of commission for possibly weeks. You will need to remove everything from countertops and everything stored in your cabinets during the project. Any appliances affected by the new design will need to be moved and stored during the project as well.
Cabinet replacement might be for you if you want to restructure your kitchen, budget is not an issue, and you have the ability to go without the use of your kitchen for a little while. Learn more about kitchen cabinet replacement here.
Cabinet Refacing: The Pros and Cons
Cabinet refacing is another option for homeowners looking to change the style of their kitchen or give the space a facelift. Cabinet refacing is less involved than replacement. Instead of tearing out the entire cabinet structure, cabinet refacing is done by removing cabinet doors, drawer faces, molding, and hardware and then by replacing these items.
Because cabinet refacing does not involve replacing the entire structure of your cabinets, it is a much more affordable option. It also means that your kitchen is completely operable during the project. For those who are environmentally conscious, cabinet refacing is the best option as, unlike replacement, it does not involve throwing out entire cabinet systems into landfills.
Because you are not tearing out the entire cabinet system, cabinet refacing does not allow for a change to the layout of your kitchen.
Cabinet refacing might be the perfect choice for you if you like the current layout of your kitchen, your existing cabinets are structurally sound, you want to improve the style of your cabinets, and you have a limited budget. You can learn more about cabinet refacing here.
