refacing existing kitchen

Post by donmaico »

Hi I have Benchmarx foil/vinyl wrapped kitchen which was fitted about 7 years ago .So far I see no signs of it peeling but as their kitchen fronts only carry a 5 year warranty I imagine it won't be too long before it starts doing so.With that in mind, I thought of having all doors and drawers replaced with a painted alternative or solid wood in a shaker style.The carcasses are fine and would appear to have several more years in them so refacing makes sense.I thought of Dream Doors( a franchise) but they have been slated on Trust pilot.Kitchen Restoration?

unless the doors a drawers are a standard size then it won't be worth the effort, there are loads of companies out there who sell replacement doors. personally I'd live with it for now and start saving for a better quality kitchen.

thanks, it seems a shame because the cabinets are pretty sound

could always sell it and put that money towards a new kitchen,. i did once try to price up buying doors only from howdens and it was gonna be almost as much as a new kitchen.

id also say that if the doors are currently sound theres no reason to worry really. unless its dated badly maybe
