How Can Upgrading Your Cabinets Transform Your Kitchen?

March 31, 2023

If you want to transform your kitchen, you might assume you have to rip everything out and start fresh. This can be expensive, time-consuming, and disruptive, so it’s not something everyone is going to want to go through.

The good news is that there are other ways to make your kitchen look better that are much easier to deal with, and one of those options is to upgrade your cabinets by refacing them. Here are some of the reasons why this can work so well.

Brighten Things Up

If your kitchen is quite dark because there isn’t a lot of natural light that can get through the windows (perhaps they are small or there is a lot of obstruction outside or it could even be that the position of the house is not helpful when it comes to getting the most sunlight), then contacting a cabinet refacing company to change your kitchen cabinets can be an excellent way to brighten things up.

If you have your kitchen cabinets painted a lighter color – it doesn’t have to be bright white, although this will work well, of course – you will instantly make the room much brighter because any light that can get in will reflect off the light surfaces.

Make It More Modern

Nothing is going to age your home more and make it look outdated than an old kitchen. Even if everything else is brand new, if your kitchen is older – and looks it because the style is not up to date – you’ll find that this is all anyone will think about. That’s perhaps not such an issue if you just want to live in your home (although it’s nice to be up to date anyway), but if you want to sell, an old kitchen could let you down.

By having your cabinets resurfaced, you can ensure everything looks a lot more modern for much less than it would cost to install a new kitchen. Choose a modern color, like blue or gray, and your kitchen will look wonderful and as good as new.

You Can Make It Traditional

There is a big difference between an old kitchen and deliberately choosing a traditional style. The former should be avoided, but the latter is a great style choice, especially if you live in an older home.

The great thing about resurfacing your cabinets is that you can choose any style you want, so it’s entirely possible to have your cabinets changed in this way to look traditional. This could be a real talking point in your home, and it will usually come as a surprise to people that you didn’t have to change the entire cabinet to achieve the look.

Cover Problem Areas

Sometimes, it is necessary to install new kitchen cabinets, especially if they are damaged in some way. However, if the damage is purely cosmetic, such as a scratch in the surface of the door, resurfacing means you don’t have to replace it at all. By the time the work is done, your cabinets won’t look damaged at all.

Of course, resurfacing can’t make a dent or hole look better, so you will need to consider the alternatives if the damage is too bad.


I believe in making the impossible possible because there’s no fun in giving up. Travel, design, fashion and current trends in the field of industrial construction are topics that I enjoy writing about.
