How Often Should You Replace Your Kitchen Cabinet?

How Often Should You Replace Your Kitchen Cabinet?

Kitchen cabinets are built to last. The average lifespan of kitchen cabinets is 10 to 15 years for a full revamp. Seems like a long period? Yes. You can enjoy the benefits of a high-quality kitchen cabinet for a long time. However, depending on the quality of materials and integrity of the structure, the lifespan of your favourite kitchen cabinet may vary. 

Here are the signs that you already need a full kitchen cabinet upgrade:

Wooden kitchen cabinets are susceptible to moisture from water, steam, oil, chemicals, and other elements that can damage both their exterior and interior parts. If you notice visible dark spots and water marks on your kitchen cabinet, it means that its quality has already been affected by water damage. Kitchen cabinets near the faucet may receive more damage, especially when there are leaks. These may cause warping, peeling of the laminate, change of colours, mould build up, and difficulty in opening.

Your kitchen cabinet can show signs of wear and tear like dents, warping, peeling, noticeable scratches, and other damage that cannot be simply fixed. These do not only make your cupboard unsightly, but can also affect the quality of the items that you store inside. The mould on your kitchen cabinet can also spoil your pantry supplies and damage your utensils. The best way to prevent this is to regularly clean your kitchen storage.
