Having damaged kitchen cabinets can be frustrating, and it can detract from the look of your home and annoy you as you try to cook in the kitchen. Before you decide whether you want to repair or replace those damaged cabinets, you should look at the damage itself.
If it is a simple repair, such as replacing the hardware on the cabinets, you might be able to do it on your own. When you have severely damaged cabinets though, your options change.
If you enjoy the DIY method, you will probably be excited to start repairing your damaged cabinets on your own. If you want to take this route, make sure that you have read everything you can about working on cabinets similar to yours. Some damaged cabinets, depending on the type of wood used, may have different repair techniques, and using the wrong repair technique can simply damage them further.
Those who have very little experience with handiwork around the house might find that trying to repair damaged cabinets on their own is a bit intimidating. If this sounds like you, it’s always possible to call in a handyman to get an assessment. He or she will be able to let you know if repairing or replacing your damaged cabinets is the best option. You may even want to get more than one estimate.
It may very well be that the cost of repair is going to be comparable to getting new cabinets. If that’s the case, look at it as an exciting improvement to your home. In fact, replacing those damaged old cabinets with a modern new set can add value to your home, as well as beauty.
