Should I replace or reface my tired kitchen cabinets?

My kitchen needs a refresh. What are my options?

A space for sharing, kitchens go beyond their practical use, often the heartbeat of a home and the setting for many a special meal or conversation. We’d all like the perfect kitchen, especially those who love to cook, but kitchen costs are almost certain to make you wince. So, it’s time for a change, but what exactly is your best bet?

Well, a whole new kitchen is always an option. However, it’s not always a viable one, especially at this time of year! Often a big project at great expense, a whole new kitchen installation can take a considerable amount of time and leave you without a functioning kitchen for a sustained period. Also, is it really worth the money with other avenues to upgrade your kitchen available?

We believe you don’t always have to gut your existing kitchen to end up with your dream kitchen. If a fresh new look is what you’re after, perhaps simply refacing your kitchen with new doors is the more sensible option? After all, if you’re happy with the functionality of your kitchen, you don’t want to throw the baby out with the bathwater.

If you’re also looking for new and improved functionality, replacement cabinets may be the solution for you. Without messing with the sizing and worktops, new cabinet installation can improve kitchen usability and design without breaking the bank.

Here at Beautiful Doors, we can replace or reface your kitchen to give it a new lease of life without having to start it from scratch.

Is cabinet replacement worth it?

It may not be as cheap as just replacing the doors, but cabinet replacements can offer truly exceptional value for money. New cabinets and cupboards can make all the difference and leave your kitchen feeling as good as new.

Here at Beautiful Doors, we offer both new kitchen units and new kitchen drawers that can be installed to your existing kitchen measurements and specifications. We are proud to offer a revolutionary range of click together kitchen units that require no tools or fittings. Off the shelf from our factory with just 48 hour dispatch, ClicBox by Beautiful Doors uses patented UNICLIC for furniture technology, meaning the different components just simply click together. 

Tested at FIRA International Ltd and successfully meeting structural performance requirements of heavy domestic / contract kitchen furniture, this technology makes it possible to assemble flat packed kitchen cabinets by simply clicking the components together, without requiring any tool, screw or glue! 

So if you’re keen to replace your kitchen but concerned about costs, we’ve got you covered.

What are the benefits of refacing instead?

If you’re happy with the functionality of your kitchen but in search of a fresh new look, refacing is a fantastic option for you. It allows you to give your kitchen a facelift without surrendering functionality and storage that you’re happy with.

At just a fraction of the cost of a whole new kitchen, our wide range of doors and drawer fronts are compatible with existing kitchen cabinets from just about all leading DIY chains such as IKEA and B&Q. Whatever style door takes your fancy, whether that be handleless, flat or shaker, our impressive range means we’re sure to have the perfect style for you. We’re not kidding, our stylish replacement kitchen doors come in over 50 different finishes!

Another benefit of refacing is the turnaround. With Beautiful Doors, you could have your stunning replacement kitchen doors within 2 working days of placing an order, meaning there’s no need to sacrifice time or put off your itch for a fresh kitchen any longer.

What’s the impact on the value of my home?

If done correctly (and by that, I mean choosing us, of course!), kitchen renovation can be a great way to increase the value of your home. On average, renovated kitchens can increase the selling price of your property by 5-6%. This is because when visiting your kitchen, prospective buyers will ask themselves if it’s going to need work, a factor which will considerably impact their financial outlay when buying the house. Sprucing up your kitchen can boost your home’s value and appeal.

Whatever option you choose, whether replace or reface, here at Beautiful Doors we can take your kitchen to the next level and improve your home’s style, practicality and value in the long run.
