Kitchen Cabinets and Home Selling

The first thing buyers notice when they walk into a kitchen is the cabinets. If yours are worn, damaged or simply tired-looking, you’ll need to re-stain, re-paint or repair them. Choose tasteful and subtle hardware that complements the color and style of your cabinets. Good-quality hardware can be found online or at any home improvement store. Hardware doesn’t have to be the top of the line to make a good impression.

The most desirable cabinets are made of hardwood, so if your home is furnished with hardwood cabinets that are damaged, you should try to repair them. You should also wash hardwood cabinets with something that will make them shine. Murphy’s Oil Soap® is great for cleaning cabinets and leaves your kitchen smelling exceptionally clean.

Laminate cabinets can be a little more challenging to replace or repair if they’re damaged since it may be difficult to match the pattern. If only one or two doors need to be replaced and there are matching cabinets elsewhere in your house, you may be able to swap a damaged door in your kitchen with a door in good condition from a less visible room, such as the laundry room. If you need to update all of your cabinets, your best bet is to have them re-faced. Re-facing should cost about half as much as replacing the cabinets would cost, and the effect will be nearly the same.
