Fresh kitchen cabinets in Raleigh, North Carolina

When it comes to renovating your home, the bigger things tend to take precedence -- exterior paint overhauls, a fresh front door, brand new floors, etc. As important as these improvements may be, though, don’t let them cast a shadow on other aspects of your home. Your kitchen cabinets, for instance, are worth just as much attention as these other features, even if they might not seem so pressing. Here’s why kitchen cabinet repairs and updates are more essential than you might think.

The Importance of Kitchen Cabinet Repairs

Your Cabinets Make Up Half of Your Kitchen’s Design

Take a look at your kitchen. Now, imagine what it would look like without cabinets. Seems empty, right? This mental exercise reveals just how much real estate your kitchen cabinets claim. Neglecting your kitchen cabinets, then, is akin to ignoring about half of your kitchen. Aesthetically speaking, these prominent features make painting a room two colors simple (i.e. one color for the walls and another for the cabinets). And in terms of functionality, your cabinets make it simple to store and organize your dishes, glassware, non-perishables, and more. The more well-maintained your cabinets are, the more beautiful and useful your kitchen as a whole.

Cabinet Problems Can Lead to Broken Dishes

You might not think much of it, but your kitchen cabinets might house significant value, especially if you have expensive dish sets, cookware, and glassware. It goes without saying, but the last thing you want is for these valuable objects to undergo damage or break altogether. If your cabinets are in a state of disrepair, though, the odds of this happening increase. Rotting wood, loose screws, dislodged hardware, etc. are recipes for disaster in this way. Kitchen cabinet painting alone won’t solve these structural issues, of course, but some Raleigh painting professionals also offer repair work and carpentry services to fix up, fortify, or replace your current cabinets.

Fresh Cabinets Can Greatly Increase Resale Value

Regardless of your plans to stay in your home or sell it, it’s important to maximize and maintain your property’s value. Generally speaking, a quality interior painting job can yield the highest return on investment (ROI) (up to 107%). Smaller kitchen remodels are nothing to scoff at either, presenting the possibility of an 83% ROI -- and a kitchen cabinet update makes up a significant portion of this value increase. Of course, the exact numbers vary from one situation to the next. The bottom line, however, is that most potential buyers care a lot about the kitchen’s condition and appearance. And, as we previously mentioned, your cabinets are about half of this equation. In other words, repairing and/or restoring your kitchen cabinets can greatly boost your home’s value for a relatively small investment up front.

Respect Your Crucial Kitchen Cabinets

If it wasn’t apparent already, perhaps now you have a greater appreciation for your kitchen cabinets. Without them, your kitchen would hardly be a kitchen, you’d have nowhere to safely store your supplies, and your home’s value would dip significantly. So, is it time to refresh these features?
