There are many things that contribute to a kitchen’s overall functionality, such as the appliances, the lighting, and the layout. In addition to these examples, another key component of any functional kitchen is the cabinets–after all, if you don’t have enough space to store all your food items, kitchen tools, small appliances, and tableware, then it’s hard to actually get any cooking done. Here at Cornerstone Kitchens, we specialize in kitchen cabinetry, and we want to help you make yours the best it can be. Of course, replacing your kitchen cabinets is a big investment, so it’s understandable to be a little hesitant about the prospect. In this article, our team will go over a few ways to determine whether you really need new kitchen cabinets.
- One way to tell if it’s time for new kitchen cabinets is to look for signs of water damage. If the wood has started to warp, if the lamination has started to peel away, or if you see signs of mold, then you should start making plans to replace your existing cabinets.
- Deteriorating Box. Another way to determine whether you need new kitchen cabinets or if you can repair the ones you have is to look at the state of the cabinet box. If the box is too worn out for you to be able to drill new holes for new hinges, then it’s time to replace the whole structure.
- Poor Function. Lastly, if you find your current cabinet setup difficult or frustrating to use, then it’s time to spring for new kitchen cabinets. Our team will help you design a cabinet system that works for your individual needs and gives you the reliable functionality you deserve.
