3 Signs Your Kitchen Cabinets Need an Upgrade

Posted November 24, 2020

Your kitchen cabinets have a greater purpose than filling out your kitchen (though they do a nice job with that, too!). Cabinets are also crucial for storage and organization. Just think about how many times you open and close your cabinets each day to grab cups, plates, pots and pans, utensils and more.

Once your cabinets start lacking in beauty or functionality, it’s time to give them an upgrade. You’ll be happier using your kitchen and this space will look and function its best. So how do you know that it’s time for a refresh? Here are three signs that your cabinets could use a little love.

1. You’re running out of storage space.

It’s possible that all you need to do is clean out your cabinets, but it’s also possible that you’ve outgrown your kitchen. It’s common for a family’s needs to change over time, after all. Or maybe your cabinets don’t provide enough room for those larger items like slow cookers, waffle irons and warming trays.

When you purchase new cabinets, you not only get a new look but also innovative storage options. You can hand pick the features that will help you stay organized such as roll-out pantries, pull-out storage, spice drawers, corner carousels and even mixer storage cabinets. The possibilities are limitless!

2. Your cabinets don’t open and close properly.

This may not sound like a big deal, but cabinets that don’t open and close properly are usually a sign of something greater. The cabinet doors may be hitting up against something else or the hinges may be broken (which can be a complex operation!).

Either way, messing with stubborn drawers and cabinets is no way to live! Maybe we’re being dramatic, but we feel that with the amount of time people spend in the kitchen, it should be functional and enjoyable to use. New cabinets will fix this problem and take care of any additional eyesores like door sagging.

3. Your kitchen looks outdated.

How does your kitchen compare to your neighbors’? If it’s outdated and lackluster, it’s time for a change. When you go to sell your home, buyers will want an updated kitchen, so why not start this project today and have time to enjoy it yourself? In fact, you may fall in love with your home all over again!

Swap out traditional oak for sleek white cabinetry. White cabinets brighten up a space and pair well with popular styles, including the modern farmhouse trend. Gray, two-toned and even blue cabinets are increasing in popularity as well. Even if you do stay in your home long term, a cabinet upgrade has the potential to increase its value.
