10 Signs Your Cabinet is Overdue for Replacement
Are you wondering if it’s time for a cabinet replacement project in your home? Sometimes it’s a matter of preference and sometimes your cabinets are sending clear signals that it’s time. Here are ten signs your cabinet is overdue for replacement.
- Sagging, Leaning, or Deteriorating Cabinets
If your cabinets are visibly falling apart, leaning, or sagging in any way, this is a sure sign you need to have them replaced. The last thing you want is for your upper cabinets to come crashing down, breaking everything inside of them. These are all key indicators that it’s time to consider a cabinet replacement project ASAP.
- Outdated Aesthetics
If your guests can take one look at your kitchen or bathroom cabinets and know exactly when they were built, their outdated aesthetic may be detracting from the rest of your home. If your cabinets scream “the 80s” or any other decade, it’s time to consider a cabinet replacement to get back to modern day.
- Wear and Tear on the Cabinet Doors
Scratches, knicks, and dents on your cabinet doors can quickly add up to a worn out and dated aesthetic in your kitchen or bathroom. It’s natural for your cabinet doors and drawer fronts to take a lot of wear and tear from constant use, but if the dings and dents are taking center stage, you’re probably overdue for a cabinet replacement.
- Functional Issues with the Cabinets
Have a cabinet door that doesn’t close all the way? Or a drawer that’s always getting stuck? These are also signs of wear and tear that indicate some of the hardware needs to be replaced. But if you’re planning to replace any cabinet hardware, you may find it more worthwhile to replace the whole set of cabinets at the same time.
- You Hate the Layout of Your Cabinets
A cabinet replacement project is a great opportunity to reconfigure the layout of your cabinetry to make your space more functional and convenient. Whether the current layout has been driving you crazy for years or you have ideas for how you could make better use of your space, you can make it all happen with a cabinet replacement project.
- The Cabinets Don’t Match the Rest of the House
If you’ve updated other parts of your home and the kitchen or bathroom cabinets simply don’t match anymore, it’s time to consider an update. You don’t want to leave your cabinets behind and leave your home feeling dated or haphazard due to an aesthetic mismatch.
- Stained, Peeling, or Faded Cabinets
Stained, peeling, or faded cabinets are another indicator that your cabinets are past their prime—and a quick paint job may not be sufficient. This also indicates that you’re better off replacing the cabinets rather than trying to salvage them.
- You Have Older Cabinets Made of Melamine
Melamine is a durable and economical cabinet material, but it’s also prone to chipping in the corners and highly vulnerable to water damage. Further, melamine can’t be refinished, so if they’re showing any signs of wear, you’re better off considering a cabinet replacement project.
- They Don’t Offer Enough Space
Are your cabinets short on storage? If you feel like you need more space, a cabinet replacement can go a long way in making your kitchen or bathroom more functional. A cabinet replacement offers opportunities to add more cabinets, install taller cabinets, and more so that you can add more functional storage space to your home.
- You Just Don’t Like Your Cabinets
You don’t have to wait for other problems to crop up. If you simply don’t like the look or style of your cabinets, a cabinet replacement can provide you with a solution that will help you choose the options you do like so that you can enjoy your home more fully.
