If your goal is to update the look of your existing cabinets, the cheapest route is to simply reface them. This process involves either stripping the stain or paint from the existing cabinets and adding new stain, varnish or paint; in some cases, you might even want to refinish the cabinets with a stick-on veneer. Whichever method you choose, this will be by far the most money-saving option, with only refinishing supplies and your own labor to account for. Be aware that this option does require considerable "sweat equity," however.
Stock kitchen cabinets are a more affordable cabinet option. True to their name, they`re usually in stock and ready to take home from cabinet specialty or home improvement stores; this makes them popular among many home renovators. They are sold either fully assembled or ready to assemble, so that many DIYers are able to personally install them, thus reducing labor costs.
Bamboo: Bamboo has a distinctive look and good overall durability, similar to hardwood. It is also subject to the same types of damage as hardwood.
