Replacing kitchen doors in order to give your space a whole new look is far kinder on the bank balance than buying a completely new kitchen.

When designing a kitchen for an existing space, it really is worthwhile considering using the existing cabinet carcasses, providing they're in good condition and you are not looking to change the layout or storage drastically. Not only will taking this route cost you less, but it is also better for the environment and is considerably less disruptive too.
