Replacing cabinet doors and drawers?


As a contractor, I have seen many customers struggle with the cost of a Kitchen remodel. If your layout is good and you don’t want to spend a fortune, have you considered replacing cabinet doors and drawers vs replacing kitchen cabinets?

Cost Savings

Replacing cabinets is significantly more expensive than simply replacing doors and drawers, especially if you’re on a tight budget. By choosing to replace only the doors and drawers, you can save money without compromising the look and feel of your kitchen.

Less Mess

Replacing cabinets is a messy and time-consuming process. By replacing just the doors and drawers, the process is simpler and less disruptive. This means less mess and less time spent on the renovation, allowing you to get back to using your kitchen sooner.

Aesthetic Appeal

New doors and drawers can transform the look of your cabinets, giving them a fresh, modern look without a complete overhaul. You can choose from a variety of styles, materials, and colors to create a customized look that complements the rest of your kitchen.


In many cases, the cabinets themselves are still in good condition and just need updating. By replacing the doors and drawers, you can improve the functionality of your cabinets without having to replace them entirely. For example, you can add soft-close hinges or drawer slides, making them easier and quieter to open and close.

Environmental Impact

Replacing cabinets means tearing out and disposing of the old ones, which can have a significant impact on the environment. By opting to replace only the doors and drawers, you are reducing waste and doing your part to help the environment.


In conclusion, Replacing cabinet doors and drawers can save you money, time, and hassle while still giving your kitchen a fresh, updated look. As a contractor, I recommend this option to anyone looking to renovate their kitchen without breaking the bank or creating unnecessary waste.
