Kitchen refurbishment experts often hear the comment: "I love my kitchen. I just wish it had a bit more... pizazz?" If you're happy with your present kitchen layout but just fancy giving it a bit of a refresher, then the easiest way to do it and give it that 'pizazz' back is to simply replace the kitchen doors!
Surely it can't be that easy though? Well, actually, yes, it can. Just by removing the old doors and drawers, and replacing them with new ones you can transform the look of any kitchen almost instantly. And it's a cost-effective option that more people are choosing every day.
The Pros and Cons
The pros of replacement kitchen doors are practical, as well as financial. Rather than ripping out an entire set of kitchen units and replacing them with ones that are almost identical but 'just a bit newer', replacement kitchen doors allow you to work with what you already have. Unless you are desperately unhappy with your current kitchen layout, it probably works quite well for you and by now you know where everything is and where everything is supposed to be! Replacement doors allow you to keep the status quo in your kitchen whilst bringing a new look to the room that's quick and easy to do.
There's far less interruption to your daily life too, and as the kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the house that's a big plus for the replacement doors option! A kitchen replacement could mean weeks of upheaval (and takeaways), whereas simply replacing the doors could be done by a team of kitchen refurbishment experts in as little as a day - less mess, less fuss and less disruption.
Replacement kitchen doors are far more cost effective than opting for a completely new fitted kitchen. However, if your units are falling apart or you want to make major alterations to the lay out of your kitchen, you will need to go for a full kitchen re-fit. Short term, this will cost more and be more disruptive, but in the long term may add more value to you property than if you just replace the doors.
Changing Your Look for Less
Whether you're planning to go traditional with a Shaker style kitchen, or prefer ultra-chic and modern, replacing the doors and drawers can help you achieve an almost-instant transformation.
Interior design trends change almost as quickly as couture clothing styles, and if you want to bring your kitchen bang up to date and on trend, changing the door fronts is the easiest way to do it. It's comparable to putting on a new dress - the body underneath is still the same, but simply by changing your exterior look the effect can be show-stopping! Why not treat your kitchen to the same, and get a designer look for less, simply by changing the doors?
