Should I replace or spray my kitchen cabinets?

Deciding whether to replace or spray your kitchen cabinets will depend on various factors such as your budget, the condition of your current cabinets, and whether you want to change the style or layout of your kitchen. Refinishing or spraying the cabinets can be less expensive than replacing them and can give them a fresh look without a significant renovation.

Why respray kitchen cabinets?

Refinishing kitchen cabinets instead of replacing them can be significantly more cost-effective and can save you between 70-80% depending on the size of your kitchen. However, replacing cabinets can provide an opportunity to reconfigure your kitchen and introduce new features like soft-close hinges and pullout drawers, but this can be costly. Respraying however, can also increase your property value if you’re planning to sell your home soon, and can increase the chances of selling your home by making it more attractive to buyers with much less upfront investment.

If your cabinets are in good structural condition but look outdated or worn, and you are looking for an affordable and quick solution to refresh their appearance, then spray painting them may be an excellent option for you.

If your cabinets are structurally unsound or if you want to change the layout of your kitchen, then complete replacement may be the only way to go. The current cost of custom kitchen cabinets is anything between £5,000 and £50,000 for a new kitchen.

Factors affecting your kitchen respray cost

There are a number of factors that will affect the cost to respray your kitchen cabinets, as each project will differ in one way or another. The most important things to consider are:

  • Number of cabinets

  • Size of cabinets

  • Cabinet material

  • The complexity of cabinetry designs

  • Access to kitchen units

  • Quality of spray paint materials used

  • The number of colours you choose

  • Any prep work needed

  • Where you live

Ultimately, the decision to replace or spray your kitchen cabinets depends on your preferences, budget, and priorities for your kitchen renovation project. It's best to consult with a professional to help you make an informed decision based on your specific needs.
