Entertainment Magazine: Home: Kitchens: Refinish or Replace?

Considerations to replace or refinish

Resurfaced can improve your home value

By Mary Hobson

Resurfacing kitchen cabinets and counters is a way to improve your kitchen's look or when renovation is needed to help sell your home.

Kitchen cabinets and counters refinished with wooden or veneered doors can make a kitchen look entirely different, especially when new drapes, redecoration, and new flooring is added.

Resurfacing the cabinet doors and counters in a new material and style can change the whole look of the kitchen at a relatively low cost.

While the cost of the cabinets and counters is reduced, the labor to renovate the kitchen is much less than a total refit. Read ideas about resurfacing kitchen cabinets.

Replacement cabinets and counters instead of refinished

Complete replacement of either or both the cabinets and counters can increase that value since newer materials are installed.

New kitchen cabinets and counters can also be added to the present layout, and drawers can be reformed to make sure they are sound and long-lasting. Read consideration about kitchen cabinet and counter replacement.
