5 Signs It May Be Time to Replace Your Kitchen Cabinets

Cabinets are a necessary feature for any kitchen. After all, where else will you store your dishes and cups? Can you imagine offering one of your guests a glass of water and then having to run to the basement to get the glass itself? Kitchen cabinets, on top of being extremely functional, can also have a unique aesthetic vibe to them that can either make or break the look and feel of the area. However, like most things, they will need to be replaced over time, and many reasons exist. Here are some signs to look out for that will let you know when to replace your kitchen cabinets.


Yeah, damage to the wood is a simple reason to start replacing your cabinets. Maybe the wood was damaged due to your kids wanting to play baseball in the kitchen. You could even notice that the wood is warped and/or decaying due to years of water damage. Whatever the cause, if there are signs of damage, it may be time to start replacing the cabinets.

It Looks a Bit Outdated

As we mentioned in the introduction, the look of cabinets can either make or break the look and feel of the kitchen. If your cabinets look like something out of the Brady Bunch’s kitchen (70s style, then it might be time for an update.

New Appliances

Picture this: you just got a new state-of-the-art smart fridge with a built-in camera to look at the inside of your fridge whenever you’re wondering what to get at the grocery store. However, when you install it, some of the cabinets above where the old fridge went are in the way because you got a bigger fridge. Remove them and move that space up a few inches to accommodate the new fridge.

Need a New Layout

When you move into a new place, there may be times when you’re looking at the layout of a particular room and wondering, “what the heck were the previous tenants thinking”? If you’re thinking the same about your kitchen area, it might be time to redo your cabinets and the entire kitchen layout.
