Kitchen cabinets can begin to show wear after years of use. When it is time to replace the existing cabinets, the decision must be made about the extent of the change. Is it just a matter of replacing existing cabinets, or is it a time to remodel the entire kitchen? If the cabinets are the only change, several things must be done in preparation for installing the new cabinets.

The sink and all the plumbing fixtures must be disconnected and removed. This may require the services of a plumber. If you are familiar with plumbing and can shut off the water supply, you can probably dismantle the fixtures without help. If not, it is best to obtain the services of a qualified plumber to do the disconnecting of the old and the reconnecting of the new plumbing.

Replacing Kitchen Cabinets

Once the plumbing is out of the way, the next step is disassembling the pieces in a way that they can be removed from the kitchen. For the cost-conscious homeowner, this is a way of cutting the total cost for installing new kitchen cabinets. The installation will go faster and easier if the entire section of cabinet space is clear of any debris, nails, fixtures, or anything that can be in the way.

Professional installers of kitchen cabinets can have your kitchen as good as new in just a short time. The choices offered today are many compared to just a few years ago. Cabinet decor is available in everything from tiny round knobs to elegantly designed wrought iron handles. From brass to plastic, there is a door accessory to complement your kitchen.
