If your kitchen is starting to look a little (or a lot!) dated, or you just don’t like the finish of your existing cabinet doors, it can start getting expensive when you begin pricing up replacing all of the cabinets. A fantastic budget friendly alternative is to keep the cabinets as they are, and simply replace the doors for an instant makeover. If you’re thinking of investing in some new cabinet doors, we’re here to share our top tips on making this process as easy as possible.


1.Consider the look you want

When it comes to your new kitchen cabinet doors, don’t just replicate the same look you already have. Instead, take the time to consider what style you love in kitchen designs and work that into your new doors – you can get easy inspiration from the internet. There are plenty of colours and styles available so you can really inject your own personality into the space. Even if you opt for a neutral colour, you can mix it up with interesting handles.


2.Choose a quality product

Although it’s important that you stay within budget, you also want to be confident that you’re using a product which will last the distance – you don’t want to have to replace your doors in a short space of time due to poor quality. Look for durable, hard wearing materials which will stand up to the heavy use of the kitchen area. If you’re not sure, contact the kitchen door company and ask some questions about their products.


3.Look for a DIY friendly option

Of course, you can always get a cabinet maker or carpenter in to do the actual installation of your cabinet doors. However, this is often a project that the DIY home renovator can successfully complete. With that in mind, make sure you use a DIY-friendly company which has an easy ordering system, fast delivery, plenty of colours and styles, and good quality hardware such as soft close hinges.


4.Measure accurately

This is probably the most crucial component of your new cabinets – making sure you get the measurements right. The last thing you need is to go to install your cabinets only to find they don’t fit! Make sure you measure, and then measure again, so you can be confident and always clearly note length and width so you don’t get the two mixed up when it comes to ordering.
