4 Signs That It's Time for New Kitchen Cabinets

You don't need to wait until your cabinets are falling off the hinges to know it's time for an update! Newly installed cabinets give your kitchen new life while also providing function and beauty. The sooner you recognize the need for new cabinets, the sooner you can start your new project!

1. Lack of Functionality

Your kitchen is one of the most frequently used rooms in the home and it's frustrating when the cabinets don't work. If you find yourself bumping into counters, fussing with sticky drawers and running out of storage space, it's time to speak with a cabinet design expert for recommendations.

  • 80% of homebuyers say the kitchen is one of the three most important spaces in their home.

  • The national average ROI (Return on Investment) for a major upscale kitchen remodel is almost $54,000.

2. Outdated Design

Does your kitchen look like it walked out of a magazine from 1985? Don't let your kitchen become an eyesore! New cabinets will transform your space and provide you with the latest safety features.

  • Kitchen cabinets last an average of 10-15 years depending on their construction - interior design trends only last a few years.

  • 29% of your kitchen remodel budget should go to your new cabinetry and hardware.

3. External or Internal Damage

Cabinets take a beating and are subject to external, internal and water damage. When your cabinets warp, peel or crack, it's best to replace them rather than try to rework them.

  • It takes just 1 hour after your cabinets have been exposed to water for damage to occur.

  • Common sources of water damage are dishwashers, steam-releasing appliances, self-cleaning appliances and microwaves.

4. Style

Tearing out old cabinets gives you a clean slate. Choose from various cabinet heights, pull-out drawers and an accessible floor plan that meets your family's current needs.

  • Tall kitchen cabinet demand is projected to grow annually by 7.7% while base cabinets are projected to grow 5.2% annually.

  • Shaker-style cabinets are the most popular choice for today's kitchens because they're clean, modern and versatile.

Kitchen cabinets are not meant to last forever. And that's probably OK with you, as this gives you the opportunity to pick out something new, stylish and functional for your current needs.
