If you are looking to change the layout or design of your kitchen, replacement is a better option. If you are going to replace your cupboards, consider hiring a kitchen designer to help you determine what features you want and the best layout for your kitchen. Replacing your cabinets is the most expensive option and usually takes the longest to complete because your existing cupboards will need to be gutted and then replaced with the new ones.
Kitchen cabinets come in a variety of different woods. These woods can include pine, maple, oak, cherry, birch, alder, and poplar. The woods that make the best cabinets are cherry, maple, and birch; however, if you need to opt for less expensive woods, you can cover alder and poplar with a hard-glazed finish which will give your kitchen a more antique look. If you want cabinets that are going to be durable enough for use in a family kitchen, stick with hickory and oak, because both of these woods will wear well. If you have small children, you definitely will not want to select pine cabinets as pine is a soft wood and will dent and scratch more easily.
On the other hand, it may be that the cabinet is too precious to inflict more damage from your low confidence in fixing it by yourself, you may opt for a professional fixer. Even the hardest of hard woods may wear and tear over time and the doors are the first to show. A professional restorer of furniture should be able to bring your wood cabinets back to life including the repair on its door.
