Just like a well-used car that constantly needs repairs, our kitchen cabinets get to a certain point too where we find ourselves asking “does it actually make more sense to just buy a new one rather than continue to pay for repairs?”
Due to their extensive use and exposure to water, steam, and other damaging elements, it’s no wonder that cabinets soon begin to show signs of ageing. For the most part, you can continue to resurface and restore cabinets with a bit of work, but over time, the harsh conditions that they endure on a daily basis will make sure that they need to be replaced. Here are 4 signs that you need to invest in new kitchen cabinets.
You may think that the older your cabinets, the more likely they will need to be replaced but age alone isn’t an indication. Think about it, if you buy your house used, you may not even know the exact age of your cabinets!
Just like cars, the number of years your cabinets have been in use don’t determine the condition. Other factors such as material, quality, durability, and exposure to certain factors that cause wear and tear do.
Some cabinets hold up better over time than others, but if you are experiencing any of these 4 issues below, it is better to replace your cabinets rather than trying to repair them.
Did you know that top-quality cabinets can last for up to 50 years? If you pair them with marble countertops which last 20 years or natural stone which lasts a lifetime, your kitchen may just outlast everything else in your home!
