Fine Cabinetry: Re-Stain or Replace?
Posted by Sam Sundeleaf on Saturday, March 17, 2018
What Should You Do when High-End Cabinets Look Worn or Aged?
Kitchen cabinets that are well-made and elegant should last for many decades, at least structurally. The finish and style, however, will probably wear out before the wood does. While you may look at your kitchen and feel the urge for a complete remodel, there is a lot to say for restaining or refinishing your existing cabinets. So, how should you decide? Should you replace your kitchen cabinetry, or can it be restored to a brilliance you can be proud of?
Advantages of Refinishing Fine Kitchen Cabinets
Cost: One of the primary reasons many people choose to refinish their kitchen cabinets rather than replace them is the cost. Hiring a quality wood restoration company to renew your cabinets is only a fraction of the cost of buying new cabinets. Why spend money unnecessarily, when you could have the same result for less?
Environmental Care: Refinishing your kitchen cabinets is generally a better environmental choice, since the wooden structure of the cabinets is probably still in great shape. By having your cabinets re-stained, you can save a few trees and avoid the overall production footprint caused by new cupboards.
Time: New kitchen cabinetry takes time to choose and plan, and then there is the time delay for the company to build your cabinets, plus the installation time. You can have kitchen cabinets that look like new in much less time by going with the refinishing route.
