With white painted cabinets being ultra trendy right now, there are times you can get away without needing to do a complete renovation. Sometimes a simple paint job will do the trick. However, there are times when a complete renovation is called for. Let’s discuss 5 sure signs that you should renovate your kitchen cabinets instead of repainting.

1. You’re Out of Storage Space in the Kitchen

A new coat of paint won’t help you conjure up more space to put your kitchen gadgets and pantry essentials. Renovating can help you acquire the additional cabinet space you need.

2. The Wood in Your Current Cabinets Has Deteriorated Beyond Repair

If the wood in your kitchen cabinets has split, rotted or otherwise deteriorated, it’s definitely time to renovate them.

3. Your Current Cabinets Aren’t Strong Enough to Support the Kitchen Countertops You Want to Install

If you want to install granite countertops or other natural stone countertops in your kitchen, you’ll need cabinets that are robust enough to support the heavy stone.

4. Your Cabinet Doors Feature Outdated Details That Paint Won’t Camouflage

Simple Shaker-style cabinets are one of the hottest current trends. If your kitchen was built or last remodeled sometime in the 1990s or earlier, you likely have exactly the opposite of this; your cabinets could have ornate details that just look wrong in a contemporary kitchen environment. In that case, painting the cabinets white won’t help much. Your best bet is to remodel the cabinets completely; however, if that’s not an option you can afford, you do also have the option to replace your cabinet doors, assuming the underlying structure of your existing cabinets is sound.

5. You’re Remodeling the Kitchen in a Brand New Style

If you’re remodeling your kitchen in a style that’s drastically different from your current kitchen design, the old cabinets simply won’t work with the new style. In that case, it makes sense to start over with a brand new set of cabinets that will harmonize well with the kitchen’s new décor.

If any of these 5 situations is a reality at your place, you’ll definitely want to consider remodeling your kitchen cabinets. We hope you’ll find this brief checklist helpful when you prioritize your home and kitchen renovations.
