Kitchen Cabinets & Counter Tops: Yes, No, Maybe. The decision to replace or reface the cabinets and counter tops during a kitchen renovation is not one to be undertaken without some serious thought. The time and expense required may be the deciding factors for many.

Many times a fresh coat of paint on your cabinets is all that is needed to spruce up your kitchen after years of use. Some may choose to stay with the existing color while others will change the color to give it a fresh feel. Some kitchens may not have enough cabinet space for your needs and so then the question becomes can you add cabinets that will match your existing ones or will you need to replace them all. Some of you will be lucky enough to be able to reface the cabinet fronts to completely change the style of your kitchen while also keeping the cost at a minimum.

The counter tops are more difficult to address, there are many options to consider none more difficult than replacing a worn out or out dated counter top. Deciding on the material you want is hard enough but there are experts at The Home Depot that can advise you on the options available and keep you informed on the benefits and advantages of the different materials.

Other alternatives you can do to change the look of your cabinets and counter tops is to consider updating other areas of your kitchen that adjoin them. Adding a tile back splash can completely transform the look of your both your counter top and cabinets. Add a little flash with a metallic tile back splash or really spice it up with a contrasting tile to your counter top.

There are so many great alternatives to choose from when you are considering updating your kitchen cabinets and counter tops.

  • I would keep my countertops, but replace all cabinets. They are the laminate kind, and they are peeling off in sheets.
