Here are some signs your kitchen cabinets need an update.
Lack of Function
Are your cabinets just not doing the job anymore? Are they misaligned? Do the drawers shut properly? Is it difficult to access your everyday items like dishes and pots and pans? Lack of functionality in your is a sign your kitchen cabinets need an update.
Damaged Kitchen Cabinets
Are your cabinets damaged? Do your doors close smoothly or are the hinges sprung? Do you see visible cracks, stains or other signs of overuse?

Like anything else in your home or closet there are trends and styles that fall out of fashion. If your kitchen cabinets are obviously from another decade then it’s time to replace them.

Do your countertops hold more of your kitchen necessities and items than your cabinets? Certainly there are items you use everyday like your coffee pot, but if you keep your pots and pans handy so you don’t need to go on a quest to heat up some soup or you have nowhere to stow your small appliances like your food processor or toaster, then your kitchen cabinets absolutely need an upgrade. Having a place for everything and everything in its place means your counters are clear and ready for meal prep, baking or whatever you need. Once you upgrade to deeper drawers, organizable cabinets and storage that makes sense you’ll wonder why you waited so long.
You’ve Outgrown Your Cabinets
While cluttered counters are a sign of unmanageable storage they can also reflect your growing family’s need for more cabinet space. A lack of cabinet space isn’t typically an issue in your first home. In fact a smaller kitchen might mean you avoid accumulating those items you really don’t need. But as a family grows so does their need for more “stuff”. If you find your possessions relocated to an “offsite” area such as the dining room table, garage or basement then your cabinets need an upgrade. How convenient would it be to have all of your kitchen necessities in one room, stored within reach?
