Are your cabinets worn out, scratched, scuffed, or dull? You might be ready to slap a coat of paint on them and call it a day. Or, in contrast, you could rip them out and start from scratch. However, there is a simpler, more affordable option that will restore them to like-new: you can refinish your kitchen cabinets.

When you choose this approach instead of painting or replacing, you can give your cabinets a beautiful new boost. Since they’re a mainstay and the cornerstone of your kitchen, this is vital because refinishing can upgrade the whole look of this room and increase the value of your home, all for a small investment when compared to replacing. Meanwhile, you can maintain the charm and richness that only hardwood offers. 

How Can You Tell if Kitchen Cabinet Refinishing Is Right for You?

On the fence about whether to stain, paint or replace? There are several advantages offered by refinishing your kitchen cabinets

For instance, if you like the way your cabinets function and they simply look tired and worn out, then refinishing gives you the opportunity to reuse them. Plus, you’ll be completely on-trend by keeping the natural wood look.

Refinishing your kitchen cabinets brings out the beauty of the hardwood, so you can see the grain and texture. This adds more depth and dimension to your cabinets and the kitchen overall. You can even opt for a darker or richer stain if it better suits your vision, while still maintaining the warmth of the hardwood. 

In addition, if you have solid hardwood cabinets that were installed many years ago, then they are likely higher quality and more durable than what’s currently manufactured. Even custom-built cabinets today aren’t up to the same standards as hardwood cabinets from decades ago. It, therefore, makes sense to try and retain them – maintaining their value in the process – and simply refinish them to improve how they look. 

Another advantage only refinishing your kitchen cabinets can offer is low-maintenance. They won’t peel, crack or wear away, like painted cabinets can do, especially in high-touch areas. The finish will last longer, as a result. Nor will you see the fingerprints, dust, grease and grime that is more visible on painted cabinets. 

Refinishing even requires less downtime when compared to DIY kitchen cabinet painting. Painting is more labor intensive, translating into more time and manpower. Refinishing, on the other hand, can be completed faster, so there’s less disruption to your busy life. 

Finally, if cost is a big consideration, then refinishing your kitchen cabinets offers the most affordable way to refresh them without taking a large bite out of your budget. Your cabinets can get the facelift they need, quickly, and you don’t have to worry about the large price tag associated with a complete replacement. In fact, Home Advisor estimates the average refinishing project to be around $2,880. 

One note of caution: If your cabinets are not hardwood and are medium-density fiberboard (MDF) or high-density fiberboard (HDF) instead, then painting is the way to go. These don’t have the same natural grain as full hardwood kitchen cabinets and therefore aren’t good candidates for refinishing.
