If the thought of completely refitting your kitchen seems impossible due to time and money constraints, why not consider simply replacing your kitchen doors and drawer fronts. The benefits of this simple job? You can transform your kitchen from an old and tired looking room, into something sleek and modern and proud to show off.
The benefits of replacing your kitchen cabinet doors don't stop at improving the look of your kitchen. There are so many benefits that you will wonder why you waited so long.
Replacement doors are cheaper
Buying new kitchen doors is significantly cheaper than installing a new kitchen. Even if you purchase a new kitchen from a high street DIY store, you can expect to pay in excess of £3,000. And you may have to pay for it to be fitted on top of this. If you choose to simply replace your door fronts, you can spend as little as £50 per door. The difference in cost is staggering.
If you buy a new kitchen, the costs can be never ending. You have the addition of new tiles, worktops, flooring, plumbing, electrics and decorating; just for a kitchen which looks new. With replacement cupboard doors, the costs are upfront and nothing additional is likely to crop up. Plus, you still get a new looking kitchen.
Do it yourself
Replacing your kitchen doors is a DIY job which even a novice can do in no time. Think of the money you will save by not having to employ a tradesman to come and fit your kitchen. At £200 per day, a professional kitchen fitter is expensive. With replacement kitchen unit doors, the costs of fitting are kept to a minimum. You can even ask the door supplier to pre-drill the hinge holes for you.
Less waste, less mess
Replacement doors mean less mess and no hassle. Your doors are ordered online, they are delivered within days and you can have them fitted at your leisure. In addition you don't have to remove tiles, re-plaster walls, move around plumbing or repaint (unless you want to). You can even recycle your old doors yourself rather than having to get a skip.
You will save time as well as money. Getting a new kitchen installed can take as long as three weeks to complete. During that time you are without a kitchen and may have no access to water or cooking facilities. However getting your kitchen doors replaced can be completed in just a day or two and at no time will the kitchen be out of bounds. Most kitchen suppliers also have a long lead in time before you can even get started. You may also have to wait for your tradesman to be ready.
Replacement doors - guaranteed for up to 10 years
Replacement kitchen doors will still come with all the same manufacturers warranties you'd expect from any kitchen salesroom. But you have the advantage of being able to choose your doors online, specify the colour and material you want and you can simply wait at home until they are delivered.
If you are on a tight budget and can't replace your entire kitchen, just doing the door fronts will mean you can opt for higher quality doors rather than buying a cheap kitchen which may not last. Generally kitchen carcasses are perfectly serviceable and replacing the front can be all that is needed.
So, as you can see, replacing your kitchen cabinet doors is an easy job which will mean less hassle, a better finish and will save you money in the long run. It certainly seems that you would be mad to buy a brand new kitchen when these great options are available.
