Two Great Ways to Refresh Your Worn-Out Kitchen Cabinets
The kitchen is called the heart of the home for a reason. You spend a lot of time there if you do cooking, and even if you don’t, you’ll often sit down there for family dinners. Also, the kitchen is a central area for entertaining guests. Spending so much time in one place, it gets a lot of wear and tear. Also, even the most beautiful kitchen can feel stale after too many months and years without change. Wouldn’t it be nice to give all the cabinets a fresh new look without having to replace them?
If your cabinets are in fairly good shape, definitely consider repainting or re-staining them! But which one should you do? Both are great options, and there are pros and cons to each. Read on to see which one is right for you and your kitchen.
Repaint Your Kitchen Cabinets
Clean and Sharp
Kitchens with painted cabinets tend to look sharper, cleaner, and more modern than stained cabinets. So, if you like clean, crisp spaces you might lean towards painting your kitchen cabinets.
Potential for Color
One of the great things about painted cabinets is that you can choose any color you want. You can go with white, but there are many other options!
It is generally a little more expensive to repaint your kitchen cabinets.
It can be difficult to touch up a paint job when the inevitable scratches happen.
Restain Your Kitchen Cabinets
Staining cabinets is generally less expensive.
Having a wood finish allows the natural beauty of your wooden cabinets to show through.
Stained cabinets are pretty easy to touch-up.
Unfortunately, especially with darker stains, dust and dirt may be fairly obvious.
Stained kitchen cabinets will show the blemishes of the wood much more than painted ones.
To Hire or Not to Hire…
That is the question. Well, although it is great to try to do projects on your own, this is not one to attempt that with! If you want your cabinets to look good and hold up for more than a few months, it is necessary to hire a professional painting company.
