Minor scratches here and there, peeling doors, and small cracks tarnish the overall appearance of your cabinets. They may or may not affect the work, but aesthetically they do not look good and eventually affect the moods.
Minor wear and tear on cabinets are always expected because they get scratches, spills, and aging as they are used. You may not want to go ahead with a full-scale restoration project, but you cannot live with these minor problems. Touch cabinet repairs are the solution here. It is like finding a common middle ground. It is relatively inexpensive yet makes your cabinets look new and thus bring peace of mind for you.
Touch Up, Refinish or Replacement?
Replacement is an expensive and time taking way to fix things. We usually do not recommend replacement if the damage is not unrecoverable and widespread. Refinishing and resurfacing is a good option when the damage is widespread and the doors or drawer fronts are in pretty bad condition.
Touch up is something for small cracks, scratches, wear and tear that is not affecting the functionality but is an eyesore for the people dealing with them. You may consider these factors while deciding the course of action.
- Does it have a sentimental value?
- See the cost estimates for all methods and your budget.
- Is it worth it?

How about a cabinet touch-up repair kit?
You often receive a touch-up repair kit with new cabinets. If not, you may purchase equipment from hardware stores or other supplies stores. They are not the perfect solutions, but a good middle ground between DIY and professional cabinet touch up a repair kit. It is like an emergency first aid kit. Cabinets touch-up kits for Wood and MDF may include the following:

Always test on an isolated piece of material.
In both cases, that is in the case of a Do Yourself repair and the possibility of professional service; it is an important step. Always test on an isolated piece of material like the back of the cabinet, toe kick, or the side, which is not very visible like inside the cabinet door to see if the colour, finish, and final finish are according to your requirement.
