If you’re planning to remodel your kitchen in the near future, you’re no doubt wondering what to do about your cabinets. After all, they are a major part of any kitchen, both for practical and aesthetic reasons, and they do show their age after a while. Perhaps you want to keep the basic look of your cabinets while getting rid of the old finish or color, or maybe you want to give them a more updated look. In any case, your options are usually to buy and install all new kitchen cabinets or refinish the ones you own. While installing all new cabinets will certainly give your kitchen a new look, refinishing your existing cabinets is often a better option. Here are just a few reasons to consider cabinet refinishing instead of cabinet replacement.


Even though there is no way to avoid spending a decent amount of money on a kitchen remodel, you will almost certainly want to find ways to reduce the overall cost. If you were to replace your cabinets, you would have to purchase a whole new set and have it installed, both of which will cost a lot of money. You would also have to have your existing cabinets removed and hauled away, which would increase your final price tag even more. As well as a new counter top, sink, backsplash, that all adds up to extra costs.

On the other hand, contacting a cabinet refinishing service to have your existing cabinets redone would involve much less work and much less money. All you would need to do is pay for having the cabinets themselves refinished. You wouldn’t have to purchase all new cabinets or have them installed, and you wouldn’t have to pay to get rid of your old cabinets. Your kitchen cabinets would look great and go wonderfully with your newly remodeled kitchen, all at a fraction of the price of buying new cabinets. The biggest bonus is you could use the savings to upgrade countertops, or replace your flooring, or you could keep it in your pocket.


With all this talk of having old cabinets hauled away, you’ve probably figured out that installing new cabinets can create a lot of waste. While you can and should recycle at least some of the components of your old cabinetry, there would still be a lot of waste that would end up in a landfill. If you’re striving to be more environmentally-conscious as you remodel your kitchen, cabinet refinishing is certainly the way to go. If you don’t have to worry about throwing your old cabinets and cabinet doors into a dumpster, you won’t have to worry about creating that much more waste. A good Albuquerque cabinet refinishing service will be able to refurbish all of your wooden cabinets while creating as little waste as possible.

A Much Easier Remodel

Finally, having your cabinets refinished as opposed to having them replaced would make your remodel that much easier. A good cabinet refinishing service can have your cabinets looking great again in a relatively short amount of time. In most cases, you won’t have to have your cabinets removed to have them refinished; the project can be done in your own home. It’s still a step that you will have to take during your remodel, but it is a much smaller step than tearing out existing cabinets and replacing them with new ones.
