Five Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Kitchen Cabinets


Myrtle Beach Cabinets

Kitchen cabinets get a ton of use; think about how many times a day you reach for a plate, peruse the snack cabinet, or open a silverware drawer for a fork. Over time, kitchen cabinets can lose some functionality and begin to look worn, among other issues. Here are some top tell-tale signs that your kitchen could use a cabinet refresh.

1.      Cabinets and drawers don’t function properly. A well-functioning kitchen is a necessity in a home. If your drawers are hard to open and close or cabinet doors are falling off their hinges, a cabinet update is needed. You’ll be amazed at how much more you enjoy being in the kitchen when your cabinets and drawers work properly.

2.      The cabinets are damaged. Cabinet and drawer doors and interior boxes can also sustain damage over time. Water issues are common in the kitchen and can cause swelling, bubbling, and dark spots on cabinets. Mold can also accumulate on cabinets because of water damage. Not only can this cause your kitchen to smell, but it can also compromise the structure of the cabinets.

3.      Your cabinets are permanently dirty. Fingerprints, food splatters, and dirt not cleaned off cabinets promptly are especially hard to remove. If your cabinets remain dirty no matter how much you try to clean them, it’s time to consider replacing them. For your future cabinets, wipe them down regularly with a mild solution of warm water and liquid dish soap to prevent grease and grime build-up.  

4.      The cabinet style is outdated. Updating your kitchen cabinets to match current trends is another common reason homeowners replace their kitchen cabinets (especially for people whose kitchens have cabinets that are decades old). You can opt for a trending cabinet or classic style that will age well with your home.

5.      You need more storage. What may have worked once regarding cabinet storage may not be cutting it anymore. Adding new cabinets or reconfiguring your kitchen’s layout can free up space to store food, appliances, serving dishes, and more.
