The cabinets take up a substantial amount of room in your kitchen. When renovating your kitchen, you may be considering the budget, timeline, and finished look. Something that’s recently come to light is how environmentally friendly your kitchen remodel is. Kitchen cabinet refacing is a great place to start.
There are many benefits to cabinet refacing. South Hills’ Desirable Kitchens and Refacing shares how the process is environmentally friendly.
Cabinet refacing reduces landfill waste. A lot of the time kitchen renovators choose to drop off their old cabinets are the nearby landfill. Other options like reselling or donating may take too much time during the remodeling process. Although dropping your cabinets at the landfill may be the easiest option, cabinet refacing is a great option because it avoids creating the toxins and greenhouse gases produced at landfills.
Along with reducing landfill waste, cabinet refacing helps avoid deforestation. New cabinets would require wood to be chopped down which contributes to deforestation. The impact of deforestation is widespread – it affects forest habitat as well as emits increased amounts of carbon dioxide. In addition to deforestation, many of the big-name stores’ cabinets are made of MDF which contains formaldehyde. By refacing your cabinets, you avoid spreading this harmful chemical.
By refacing your cabinets, you can also protect your countertops. The modern, most popular countertops like quartz and granite are beautiful but they can also be fragile. If the slab is older, and not properly sealed and supported, having to remove the countertop can cause the countertop to be damaged. When you reface your cabinets, you can avoid this potential harm completely. This also benefits the environment as it reduces the amount of quartz and granite that needs to be mined.
When it comes to your kitchen remodel, your first thought may be to totally replace your kitchen cabinets. Before you do that, think about cabinet refacing as it will benefit the environment, minimize the impact on your kitchen, as well as save your wallet.
