Are my kitchen cabinets worth painting?

When it comes to updating your kitchen cabinets, it may be hard to know if you should replace them, or if painting the cabinets is a good option. There are several things to consider when trying to decide if it is worth painting your kitchen cabinets.

Are the kitchen cabinet doors in good shape?

The first thing to consider is the type of material and the condition of those kitchen cabinets. It is usually apparent where the silverware drawer and cup cupboard are, due to the wear and tear those spaces can go through. You will want to make sure that the cabinets are solid wood and that there is no damage by the hinges. If there are cracks, there is a possibility it can be glued back together. Having solid wood cabinets is a plus when considering painting. If the doors have a lot of grime on them, that is an easy fix with a little elbow grease. Brush & Roll Painting will give the kitchen cabinets a thorough cleaning before the finish is applied.

Do you like the layout of your kitchen?

Do you have good countertops?

If you have granite or quartz countertops, then you probably would be better off keeping your current cabinets and having them refinished to an updated color. Replacing your kitchen cabinets would require also replacing the counter you already like, which only increases the cost of your kitchen remodel.

More often than not, it will be worth it to refinish your kitchen cabinets as opposed to replacing. If you feel that is the route you are interested in going, let Brush & Roll Painting give you a free estimate. You can book your appointment right here.
