Ikea kitchen cabinets are a popular option for many homes in Australia. The company offers a range of kitchen options to create that sleek, European look that the Swedish company is famous for. Unfortunately, like every type of furniture, you can’t expect your Ikea cabinet doors to last forever, so here we’ll explore some signs that you’ll need to refinish your cabinets.

Your Doors are No Longer Functional

Ikea doors for cabinets are designed to operate smoothly, so it can be frustrating when they start to stick. If you find your cabinet doors are knocking into each other every time you open them, or they hang on their hinges, it is a sure sign you need to consider replacing or refacing your cabinets.

They Look Outdated

While your kitchen may have been the height of sophistication in the Ikea catalogue of the 1990s, it may now look a little dated. Even if you upgrade to new appliances, those old cabinets can make your entire kitchen look out of style. Fortunately, you can create a whole new look with new doors for your Ikea kitchen cabinets. You can choose a finish to complement your new appliances to bring your kitchen bang up to date.

Your Cabinets Are In Great Shape

Many of us get a little tired of our decor and want to update the aesthetics of our home. Buying a whole new kitchen can be a very costly process, but if your Ikea kitchen cabinets are in great shape, but you’re tired of the style, you can quickly replace the doors and drawers to change things up. If the actual boxes of the cabinets are not showing any signs of damage such as rotting or warping, cabinet refacing is a great solution.

You Like Your Kitchen Layout

For many people, a kitchen renovation is an ideal opportunity to change the layout and improve functionality. However, if you like the layout of your kitchen and are happy that everything is in the right place, then you can update your kitchen without needing to change the cabinets.

You Have a Tight Budget

As we mentioned above a full kitchen renovation can easily cost tens of thousands of dollars. Whether you’re unsure if you can recoup this with your resale value or you just have limited funds, it doesn’t mean that you're stuck with your outdated kitchen. Cabinet refacing is a far more budget friendly option, so you can create a whole new look at a fraction of the price. Additionally, you won’t need to go through the mess and stress of having all your cabinets ripped out of your kitchen.
