How Long Should a Kitchen Last?

Many homeowners may choose to purchase brand new kitchen cabinets without realising that there are other options available. Depending on the quality of your original cabinets, the amount of time they last will vary. In general, high quality pre assembled kitchen units should last up to 50 years – making them one of the longest lasting components in your kitchen. Since they are so durable, there is often no need to replace the whole thing.

It is often personal preference as to how regularly you change your kitchen. However, if your kitchen cupboards are falling apart or you need a general revamp and restyle, we have a variety of kitchen doors at unbeatable prices. If your kitchen is still in great condition (but just in dire need of a makeover), why not consider restoring your original units with replacement kitchen cabinet doors?


How long do other kitchen components usually last?

If you are changing your cabinets, you may want to consider other appliances or kitchen features that may need replacing soon. The average longevity of kitchen appliances is as follows:

  • Gas oven: 15 years
  • Dishwasher: 9 years
  • Sink: 5 to 10 years
  • Cabinets: 50 years
  • Refrigerator: 13 years
  • Countertops (made of natural stone): lifetime
  • Countertops (made of marble): 20 years

Due to kitchen cabinets lasting so long, it may be important to choose doors which match your other appliances.
