Cabinets have stood the test of time and have always been the most significant component of a kitchen. After living with the same cabinetry for many years, you may become bored with them and crave something more modern or uniquet. This is when you must decide if a cabinet upgrade is worth it.

The Braemar designers are experts at kitchen design and product selection. We work with clients on an individual basis and strive to understand the homeowners’ needs and wants. Below are five reasons we feel a cabinet upgrade is worth the money and the time.

Changes the overall look: If your kitchen is starting to feel boring or outdated, you don’t necessarily have to remodel the entire space. Merely changing out the cabinets will make the entire room look more stylish and inviting. If you only have enough budget to do one thing in your kitchen, new cabinets are the way to go.

More storage and organization: Today’s cabinetry offers much more storage space than older cabinets. As families grow and evolve, they acquire more items and necessities. Instead of cluttering your tables and counter tops with everyone’s belongings, ensure each item has a designated place. Similarly, when you have more storage space, it’s easier to become better organized.

You can tailor cabinets to your needs: If you buy an existing property, rooms and layouts may not be to your liking. After living with the house as is for a while, you begin to realize things you’d like to change or update. When you replace old cabinets with cabinetry you select, it makes the kitchen more personable and functional.

Pair with DIY projects: Replacing kitchen cabinets is probably not something you can do on your own, unless you have building or contracting experience. However, if you get new cabinets professionally installed, you can achieve other updates on your own such as painting, replacing lighting and redecorating. Collectively, these changes will make your kitchen look like an entirely new space.

Transforms the configuration of your kitchen: Updating your kitchen cabinets gives you an opportunity to change the layout of your kitchen. With cabinetry taking up the bulk of space, changing them out will allow you to tweak the configuration, and after may years of the same exact kitchen, a change in design will add a little excitement.

Increases the home’s value: You can never go wrong by making a change that will add worth to your home. New kitchen cabinetry will increase your home’s value by thousands of dollars, and a full kitchen remodel will increase the value even more. Considering the importance of the kitchen, any type of update will be well worth it, not only for your own happiness but also for the value of the home. 

If you have a small budget and can only make one change, updating kitchen cabinetry is the way to go. This change will add storage, increase your home’s value, bolster the aesthetics and much more. When you’re ready to get started, call Braemar today.
