Take A Closer Look
“At our cabinets? They look fine,” says Justin.
“Take a closer look,” says Amber. “I can see the stain fading on all of them, a few have minor nicks, and one or two have moisture damage,” she points out.
Justin’s eyes widen as he gets closer to the cabinets. “Where did all this come from?! Either we’re irresponsible or these cabinets are super old.” Amber shrugs. “They’re old. I mean, we did cause the damage, technically, but that’s just what happens the longer you own something.”
Justin frowns. “I need to look up how long cabinets last before they need replacing. Can you look up how long painted cabinets last? Might be nice to at least freshen up or change that part,” he asks.
“Sure thing!” says Amber. “Sounds like we’re going to get a new look for our home,” she says excitedly. “We’ll need to look up kitchen cabinet costs too.” The couple grabs their phones and they start searching Google for answers.

What Mainly Causes Cabinets To Need Replacing
They look outdated. Sometimes you just get tired of looking at the same cabinets year after year. Not only that, but new cabinets have really cool features! Plate dividers, charging ports, seasoning racks, and more!
Damage. Cabinets can’t last forever, especially the ones in kitchens, bathrooms, and high traffic areas. Moisture damage, warping, and normal wear and tear happen to everyone’s cabinets.
Low-quality material. Lower-quality materials are more affordable, but they wear down more quickly. They might be cheaper upfront, but you’ll need to pay a contractor to install them each time.
