Why Change Your Cabinets When Replacing Your Worktops

Worktops tend to take over the entire look and feel of your kitchen. If you have placed a stunningly designed worktop, hardly any people are going to stare elsewhere.

This is true to almost every household, thus, most homeowners don’t pay much consideration to their kitchen cabinets. In reality, they suppose that they would be able to escape with just resurfacing their cabinets in order to save significant amount of cash.

Cabinets can truly take about 50% of your total renovation expense. Nevertheless, merely resurfacing your cabinets isn’t always the ideal thing to do.

Fitting new worktops over old cabinets
It’s definitely a bad idea to install new worktops over old counters and cabinets. Worktops, once fitted, should not be moved elsewhere. If you do, there’s a big possibility that you might damage them. That’s particularly accurate if you’re fitting genuine stone worktops. It’s true, you might save some money for now, but then again you might come to regret it sooner or later as your old cabinets might need to be changed in due course.

If you mount new cabinets along with striking new worktops, you will then have a newly rejuvenated kitchen that will last for quite a long time. Installing high-quality cabinets might be able to withstand and hold up your new worktops for a number of years.

The Cost
Most people decide on to resurfacing their current cabinets and counter because they are quite certain that it would be economical. Nevertheless, that’s not always the case. If you must replace the cabinets after a couple of years, you’re really not saving any money. In reality, you’re just paying more than you need to and endangering your newly purchased worktop as well.

After all, a pristinely new kitchen will last a few decades if it’s appropriately maintained. While placing new worktops over old cabinets might cause you some complications after only a few years. Which means you will still have to spend time and money changing worktops and then spend even more cash, time and effort by substituting your cabinets after about 2 to 3 years.

That process will take too much money and time and it just doesn’t make any sense. Most contractors will agree on giving big discounts for a complete kitchen renovation that could possibly save you loads of cash. That’s a realistic one-time investment for a kitchen space that you won’t have to revamp for another decade or so.

The Hazards of Resurfacing
If your current counters and cabinets are sturdy enough and might withstand few more years of service; then resurfacing might be a worthy idea. However, that’s hardly ever the case.

In most scenarios, cabinets are already too worn-out and dented to last a few more years, even after resurfacing. Eventually, homeowners are then required to change them after very few years. If you do a complete kitchen revamping and mount new cabinets as well as worktops, you won’t have to be concerned about it for several years.

Changing your work surfaces and cabinets, as well as doing a full kitchen makeover will certainly save you lots of money. It’s always a great idea to pick quality and stability rather than the cost.
