If you are unfortunate enough have your kitchen doors damaged in some way, you will know the despair you will feel at the thought of having to replace your entire kitchen. Not only is it very expensive, it is also time consuming and annoying. You may only have damaged one door, but the whole kitchen will need to be replaced – won't it? Not with replacement kitchen doors it won't!
We can replace individual doors if we have a matching style or just the fronts of all doors and your kitchen will be restored to its former glory. It will be as if the damage to your kitchen never happened and your kitchen will look brand new in just a few days.
Reasons Why Your Doors Could Be Damaged
- Fire – even the smallest fire on your hob, which is quickly extinguished will lead to door damage. At the very least the doors adjacent to the hob will be left scorched, buckled or warped.
- Flood – if your washing machine overflows, you leave a tap running or your home is flooded from outside, your lower cupboard doors could be easily damaged. They will absorb the water causing them to warp and to become discoloured. Even water coming from an upstairs bathroom and leaking through the ceiling can damage your kitchen doors if it is running onto them for long enough.
- Wear and tear – if you have children or pets you may find that certain doors in your kitchen become scratched and worn over time. Lower doors may be more affected by this type of damage and so it is great to know you can replace just the worn out doors if you wish.
- Heat – if your oven or dishwasher is very close to the doors on either side, they could possibly be affected by the heat. The paint may bubble or the door may warp out of shape. Simply buying new doors and adding heat protectors will avoid this happening again.
You are left with two very clear choices when you face a damaged kitchen. You can replace the entire kitchen (perhaps using insurance to pay for the cost) or you can simply add replacement kitchen doors. Obviously the second option is cheaper, quicker and could avoid hefty insurance excesses or increased insurance bills.
When choosing your new kitchen doors you may opt to replace just one or two doors. In most cases this is possible, provided your doors are standard and they can be easily matched. Thankfully we have a huge range of style options and the chances of you finding a match is very good. You may also decide to mix and match your doors by moving them around to add character to the room.
If this isn't possible or you fancy a total change, you can buy replacement kitchen doors for all of your cupboards. This is easy to do and will still work out cheaper than replacing your entire kitchen. In terms of cost you may only need to spend a few hundred and in terms of time it may take a week or two to receive your doors and just two days to fit them.
Damaging your kitchen doors need not be a disaster. It might be annoying and even sad, but it doesn't have to be costly and time consuming to put things right.
