Should You Replace or Paint Your Kitchen Cabinets?

Should You Replace or Paint Your Kitchen Cabinets?

Aug 18, 2017

Is your kitchen feeling a little dated, tired, or both? Or, maybe you’re just restless for a change?

Kitchens are worthwhile spaces to update, offering not only a lot of satisfaction through the transformation, but also a tangible return on your investment. Bathrooms and kitchens both tend to dominate the top of the list of high-value home improvements year after year. It is important, however, to plan your improvements carefully, ensuring that your time and dollars are spent just as wisely as possible.

Today, let’s take a look at a common question: should you paint your kitchen cabinets or replace them?

If You Answer “Yes” To These Questions, Cabinet Painting Is Right for You

  • Do you like the overall layout, function, and storage within your kitchen?
  • Do you like the structural style of your cabinets?
  • Are you interested in updating your cabinets without the disruption of an entire replacement?
  • Does the work need to be completed on a shorter timetable than an entire remodel would allow?

In most cases, painting kitchen cabinets is more cost-effective than a full replacement as well. Just another benefit to consider!

Should You Hire a Professional to Paint Your Cabinets?

We’re all for fun, DIY home improvement projects, but in this case the risk outweighs the reward.

Cabinet painting offers little margin for error, and requires a flawless, durable finish that can stand up to the strain of a busy home environment. It also is a labor-intensive process that requires the proper tools, product knowledge, and experience to get just right. Many homeowners tackle the work with the best of intentions, only to find themselves with a real mess on their hands after countless wasted hours.
