The answer, luckily, is yes!

Replacement Kitchen Doors Could Be The Answer!

Choosing to replace your kitchen doors, while retaining the original structure and layout of your current kitchen is a great option.

Replacement kitchen cabinet doors could be a way forward – just as long as you are generally happy with your existing layout.

Just by changing your kitchen cabinet doors, you can achieve a fresh new look. The vibe and ambience of the space can be genuinely transformed without the need for a completely new kitchen refit.

Adding replacement doors can make it feel like you have a completely new kitchen, but without the hefty price tag that it would normally entail.

Replacement Kitchen Cabinet Doors In Every Style

At Kitchen Warehouse, we have a huge range of replacement doors that are designed to help you to create your perfect kitchen space, without the need for a complete overhaul.

From contemporary handleless designs to the most traditional of Shaker styles, you can find the perfect cabinet doors, drawer fronts or other kitchen doors that will give the heart of your home a whole new dimension.

You really do have to just replace kitchen cabinet doors to revitalise your kitchen space.

Check the Structure

Before you start shopping for your new kitchen doors, it’s wise to check that the structure of your existing kitchen carcasses are in good order.

The carcass is the actual body or frame of the cupboard. They should be safely and securely fixed to the walls, with no wobbling or warping present.

With kitchen cabinets that have been installed for years, you should expect some general wear and tear. This isn’t a problem, as long as the integrity of the carcass itself is in good order.

Indeed, you may well find that the worst evidence of wear and tear on your existing kitchen cabinets is on the drawer fronts themselves. And, of course, this isn’t a concern because these are the things you are replacing!

Check Under Sinks and the Ends of a Run of Cupboards

There are particular areas of the kitchen that need close inspection.

You should check areas such as under sinks, as these can be prone to damage due to water leaking from the unit above.

Also, the ends of a run of cupboards tend to take the most wear and tear because of their positioning, so these need to be inspected carefully too.

However – with these checks completed, if you are happy that your carcasses are in good and safe condition, it’s time to start looking for those new kitchen doors.

How To Measure For Replacement Kitchen Doors

Many kitchen doors are of a standard size; however, this isn’t always the case.

Here at Kitchen Warehouse, we have replacement kitchen doors in standard sizes, but we also offer a made-to-measure service where we can manufacture a door to your exact specification.

First, make sure to count the number of doors that you will need.

Remember, you are measuring the door and not the unit!

Follow These Easy Steps

Kitchen doors are smaller than the kitchen cabinets that they are attached to, so first open up the door and measure the back of the door rather than the front.

Measure the height first, and then the width. Measure in millimetres, rather than centimetres or inches.

Watch our video on how to measure kitchen doors for more tips.

Once you are sure you have the exact figures, you can order your made-to-measure replacement doors.

Your bespoke kitchen cabinet doors are only a few clicks away!

Choosing The Style For Your Kitchen Cabinet Doors

How do you choose the correct style of replacement kitchen doors? Well, it’s a ‘How long is a piece of string?’ situation, really. It all comes down to your own preferences, the vibe that you would like to create, and choosing a style of replacement kitchen doors that is in keeping with the style and size of your existing kitchen.

Modern or Traditional?

The first question that you need to answer when you come to replace kitchen cabinet doors is really whether to go for a modern and contemporary style or a more traditional and classic look.

Of course, when we say ‘traditional’ or ‘classic’, it doesn’t mean ‘old-fashioned’ replacement kitchen doors. It just means that these are kitchen cabinet doors that build on the traditions of the past, such as solid oak kitchen cupboard doors.

This will bring any kitchen up-to-date and ready for the future. This is a look that will extinguish the memories of tired-looking existing doors.

Acrylic gloss doors reflect light beautifully. This means that they will create the impression of a more spacious kitchen. And as well as space, you are guaranteed style, with a great range of colours to choose from for your new doors.

Can I Replace Just One Kitchen Door?

Generally speaking, you cannot replace a single kitchen door to match your existing units. Often there will be variances between kitchen doors between each and every batch, due to the nature of their manufacturer, so finding an exact match at a later stage is unlikely.

Additionally, even if you source a kitchen door that is the same style in the same batch, once we start using our kitchens, the door will likely be subjected to sunlight, which can start to change colour over time.

Also, using different cleaning products may affect the colour, making the likelihood of an exact match extremely unlikely.

 Can I Replace Kitchen Doors Myself?

Typically, the answer is yes! While we do always recommend that for the best results, it may be wise to use a kitchen fitter; replacing your kitchen doors yourself is a fairly straightforward task, although it’s important to be accurate.

It really depends on your DIY confidence level!

How To Change Kitchen Cabinet Doors

Firstly, you will need to remove your old kitchen doors. To do so, you will need to remove the doors themselves, usually by simply unscrewing the hinges.

However, you then need to remove the hinge backplate from the unit.

The next step is to attach your hinges to your new door. You can re-use your original hinges, or why not check out our range of high-quality soft-closing hinges?
