Kitchen cabinets are freaking expensive, but the kitchen is one of those rooms that gets a horrific amount of abuse and often needs freshening up at least once a decade.  Tearing out can be more than most people have the patience and dollars for, so another option is to repaint the cabinets.  You can hire a pro or do it yourself, depending on your budget and level of energy, but some nice low/no VOC paint and new hardware can totally change the character of your kitchen – and reusing the cabinets that are there instead of buying new ones is muy sustainable!  Here is a short video from a great site, ask the builder, that can get you started.
