Can you just replace kitchen countertops?
It is generally recommended to replace cabinetry if you are replacing your countertops, however, you can just replace your kitchen countertops without changing the cabinets. There are a few things to keep in mind before doing so.
First, make sure that you don’t need to replace your cabinets, that the hardware like the hinges and drawer slides are still in good shape, that they are in good overall condition and that you’re still happy with the look.
You also want to ensure that the new countertops will match your existing cabinets and that the countertops are not too heavy for your cabinets.
Finally, and most importantly, keep in mind that only replacing your countertops means that your kitchen will keep the same layout. If you want to update the look of your kitchen, you may want to consider changing the layout to give your family more space and comfort.
