Cabinets are among the most important element in the kitchen. If yours are looking worn and dated, it’s time to take action.
One solution is to buy replacement cabinet doors. This project offers an economical way to restyle the most important visual element in the room. The result can be a dramatic transformation that helps boost your home’s visual appeal and resale value.
There are many options in replacement cabinet doors – from crisp laminates to rich cherry woods. When selecting replacement cabinet doors, think about the look you want to achieve. If your home has a contemporary feel, consider white laminate doors with a flat panel. If you have an older, more traditional home, then wooden replacement cabinet doors are a better choice.
Replacement cabinet doors come in several materials and levels of quality. Doors that are all wood or made from a solid plywood typically are more durable – and costly – than those made from thin plywood or a wood veneer.
Replacement cabinet doors also can be accented with interesting cabinet hardware. Among the popular styles are brushed chrome or white porcelain knobs, rectangular shaped wrought iron handles or whimsical knife and fork handles.
As with any remodeling project, look for a qualified carpenter to install the doors. This is particularly true if you live in an older house with cabinets that may not be level or plumb. You’ll need a good carpenter to make sure the replacement cabinet doors fit well with the existing frames.
If you’re looking to spruce up your kitchen without the hassle of a full scale remodeling, consider replacement cabinet doors. You’ll find a variety of styles and wood species that can give that important room a big boost.
