Kitchen cabinet siding has many benefits. It’s certainly a lot less expensive than starting from scratch, but it also recycles old cabinets, making it the most environmentally friendly option. Of course, the deciding factor is the fact that the job can be completed in much less time with far fewer interruptions.
The main benefit, as with most things, comes down to cost. Cost is a defining factor for most things, which is why with kitchen cabinet siding, savings of up to thirty percent less than full replacement are great motivators that lead people to choose this as a option.
Another eco-friendly benefit is reusing old cabinets instead of ripping them out. It makes perfect sense when considering how sturdy older cabinets tend to be. Modern cabinets are mass produced in factories, with a design optimized to be light for transport and easy to assemble. Rather, things produced in the past were built to last. Breaking down such great cabinets seems like a waste, and replacing them with something inferior seems like a terrible shame
The key benefit of kitchen cabinet siding is the sheer choice and ability of the siding to look stunning, as if it has been completely replaced. Finishing is a key part of achieving this, and there are three options in regular use, from solid-color or wood-effect plastic laminates to the more realistic effects of rigid thermo films. For the ultimate in looks, the genuine wood finish of the wood veneer outperforms the other two.
While saving is a huge benefit, there are unfortunately situations where kitchen owners need to be careful to go for the cheapest option. Many kitchens do not have an optimal layout and, therefore, involve extra work for the people who use them. It’s a shame that those who are cooking or working in the kitchen are forced to trip over other people and weave around misplaced cabinets. The ideal solution in this case is to simply gut it and start from scratch. Some cabinet siding companies offer some cabinet replacements so that if only a few needs are done, customers can get the best of both worlds. Most will also fit in new cabinets.
Most beneficial is the cabinet liner’s ability to be done faster and with fewer interruptions. Unfortunately, there will be times when a full replacement is the best value, in which case a few days of disruption are unavoidable. Sometimes a fresh start for your kitchen may be the best option. Renovation work time is the perfect time to change a few other things, like drawers and accessories, like replacing granite kitchen countertops.
Kitchen cabinet siding not only saves costs, but its greatest benefit is its simplicity and ease, allowing you to get the kitchen you’ve always dreamed of at a reduced cost and less fuss.
