Is your kitchen looking dull and outdated? Replacing your kitchen cabinets is probably the right idea, but can be a costly option. Cabinet refinishing is an alternative way to transform your home kitchen without completely emptying your pockets. 

Here are five reasons why refinishing your kitchen cabinets is a great way to revive your home kitchen.

1. Updated Appearance with Refinished Cabinetry 

You won’t realize how much of a difference updated cabinets make until you get them. Over time, existing cabinets deteriorate and fade in color, but refurbished cabinets can bring them back to life. With new colors, designs, and textures, La Clave Improvements can completely change the style and atmosphere of your kitchen.

2. Cabinet Refinishing Invites Customization

Completely replacing your cabinets opens you up to plenty of options but for a much greater cost. Refinished cabinets give you more options than you may think. The biggest choice to make is whether you want painted or stained cabinets. Stained wood cabinets display the natural color and texture of the wood and require little maintenance. Keep in mind there are still color options available for stained cabinets but they are more limited than paint. 

Painted cabinets have a wider range of color options available allowing you to really mix and match with the rest of your kitchen. Painted cabinets will not reveal the natural look and color of your wood and instead provide a sleek, clean finish. One of the downsides of painted cabinets is the chance for cracks or witness lines to appear, which could result in needing periodic touch-ups. 

3. Improved Durability

Updating your cabinets will improve their durability and life span by several years. Each cabinet will receive a protective finish, which helps protect the wood from moisture, stains, and other types of damage. If your original cabinets were already constructed from high-quality materials and remain in good shape, refinishing them is a smart way to preserve them for the long-term so replacement doesn’t become necessary sooner. 

4. An Updated Kitchen Increases Property Value

Refinishing your cabinets can have a big return on investment. New, updated cabinets will go a long way in boosting the value of your home. For a nominal cost, you can give your home a facelift and make your kitchen a desirable feature for potential homeowners. But it’s very important to make sure you work with a reliable cabinet refinishing company that does the job right. La Clave Improvements has earned lots of 5-star reviews from satisfied clients on both Google and Angie’s List.

5. Refinishing Saves You Time and Money

Refinishing cabinets is more cost-effective than completely remodeling your kitchen or buying brand-new cabinets. According to Home Advisor, installing new kitchen cabinets can cost anywhere from around $2,000-$10,000. Comparatively, refinished cabinets only cost around $1,000-$4,000. 

Additionally, getting your cabinets refinished is a big time saver as opposed to a complete remodeling. From design to completion, a kitchen remodel can take several months to complete. La Clave Improvements will refinish your cabinets in just a fraction of the time it will take to completely replace them.
