Refinishing your cabinets can be a good alternative to investing in new ones. According to Real Simple, cabinet refinishing can be up to $5,000 cheaper than replacing your cabinets. If you're a homeowner, keep an eye out for these five signs that you need to have your cabinets refinished.
Even if you choose the best paint for your cabinets, you can't expect that paint to last forever. Paint can start to fade over time as a result of prolonged exposure to moisture and light, so fading paint is a sign that it's time to get your cabinets refinished.
Keeping the paint on your cabinets pristine is hard work, and it's nearly impossible if you have a large family. If there are several spots where paint is starting to chip or peel away, painting your cabinets can make them look new again.
When too much moisture accumulates on a painted surface, it can cause the paint to blister. Bubbles in your cabinets are a sign of paint blistering, and those blisters won't just go away. If the paint on your cabinets is starting to blister, you should have them refinished and address any potential moisture problems your home may have.
Popular cabinet styles change all the time, and keeping up with the latest styles keeps your home looking its best. If your cabinets have paint or stain that's outdated, you can update them without having to invest in entirely new cabinets for your kitchen.
Minor cabinet damage isn't uncommon, whether your pets damage lower cabinets and drawers or you scrape a cabinet door while putting dishes away. The good news is that most minor cabinet damage can be fixed without replacing your cabinets. Cabinet refinishing is a great way to give them a fresh new look and repair minor paint damage. You can even fill in small spots where the wood has been damaged.
