...and why a replacement kitchen will change your mind! Even for those of us with money to spare, time up our sleeves and impressive DIY skills, the thought of getting a new kitchen can be daunting. You keep saying "next year". Or "when the Summer comes". In fact, what you are really saying is "I don't want the hassle and I have better things to do".
There is a good chance that you haven't actually have thought about the ways replacement kitchen doors could could blow all of your excuses out of the water. But luckily for you, we have thought about it - a lot. We have heard all the excuses under the sun and these are just a few:
I really can't afford a new kitchen
To be fair, most of us can't afford to fully replace our kitchen. You can be looking at anywhere from £3,000 to £10,000 for a full kitchen makeover. And that doesn't even include the labour costs. With replacement kitchen cabinet doors, all you need to pay for is the doors, the handles, new hinges and possibly some trim such as pelmets, end panels and plinths. It will cost a fraction of the cost of adding in new tiles, worktops, redecorating and flooring.
Plus you can complete the work yourself - saving an extra £3,000!
I just don't have the time to install a kitchen
It is true that a full kitchen will take up to 3 weeks to be installed. During which time you will be eating takeaways and microwave meals, while washing up in the bath. And that is if the installer completes all the work. Several installers may be harder to coordinate, increasing the time scale.
Replacement kitchen doors can honestly be fitted in just a weekend - transforming your kitchen in no time. You may have to wait a few days for deliver. But you will be amazed at how quickly you can get a brand new looking kitchen. Time is money, remember.
I can't be bothered with the mess
We are with you on that one! Skips in the driveway. Broken tiles all over the floor. Dust settling into every available surface and workmen traipsing their dirty boots through the house. Installing a kitchen is an nightmare when it comes to mess and hassle.
That is unless you decide to go for replacement kitchen doors. You simply remove the old ones, pop them into the boot of your car and take them down to the recycling centre. Easy, tidy and incredibly quick. The installation of the new ones is even tidier. Without a speck of dust to be seen.
I like my kitchen how it is
This old chestnut? Do you really like your kitchen or are you trying to gloss over the cracks? If you take into account all of the above: the ease of installation, the cheaper prices and the lowered time scales - this excuse of being happy will soon be over ruled. This excuse is simply there because you are too scared of the above reasons.
Look closely at your room. The doors are wonky, the paint is peeling, the handles are filthy and you are fed up with the layout. You can change this through the use of replacement doors and maybe an added carcass or two.
Besides if you really love your your existing layout, you can probably find doors that will match perfectly. Just spruce up those that are looking a little old and faded.
We don't like excuses! We challenge you to come up with some that cannot be fixed with a little replacement kitchen door magic.
