If you’re not quite ready to fully remodel your cabinets, there are still a few ways you can address wear and tear on each of the components.
Consider refinishing your cabinets. If the outward-facing components are in good condition, the cabinets might be a good candidate for refinishing. Remove the cabinet doors and drawer facings, sand or strip away the old finish, and apply a new stain, paint or finish. If any of the exterior components have significant damage, however, refinishing is unlikely to be a viable option. You’d be better off with refacing, which means keeping the existing structure intact and just replacing the doors and drawer facings.
Prevent further wear and tear on your drawers. If any of your drawer corners are weak or coming apart, remove the drawer and fix it now. You can test drawer corners by placing a piece of scrap wood against the corner and tapping it lightly with a hammer. If the corner doesn’t hold up, it should be repaired. This is an easy fix: Just remove the drawer front, remove any fasteners and old glue from the corner, then reglue and clamp down until the glue dries.
