We have made a list of pros and cons of replacing your cabinets for you to evaluate which option is right for you!

PROS

  • You will increase functionality with custom cabinets built for your needs.

  • You will have a lifetime warranty when selecting new cabinets.

  • New cabinetry is not as costly as you may think. It is just slightly more than refacing your cabinets properly.

  • You have dozens of cabinet design, colors and finishes to select from.

CONS

  • Refacing your cabinetry will not provide a lifetime warranty.

  • Refacing your cabinets will not improve the quality or functionality of your cabinets.

  • It is costly to reface your cabinets correctly. It usually comes out to ⅔ the cost of new cabinetry.

  • Some cabinetry cannot be resurfaced in your desired color selection.

There are pros and cons with every comparison, but in this particular situation purchasing new cabinets has a lot more pros than cons. If you need new cabinets because the existing cabinets are low quality, there is no way around it. Refacing your cabinets would be like putting a pretty bandaid on a huge wound. However, if your cabinets are functional, have plenty of space and are in excellent condition refacing your cabinets would be a great option!
