Can you remove kitchen cabinets without destroying them?
Removing kitchen cabinets is an essential part of a kitchen renovation. The good thing is that cabinets fastened to the wall can usually be taken off without any damage, meaning you can reuse the cabinets if you want to. Remove the trim, disassemble the cabinets, and disconnect them from the walls one at a time.
How do you remove old kitchen cabinets without damage?
How to Safely Remove Kitchen Cabinets
- Taking down the kitchen cabinets?

- Take off the cove molding along the soffit with a pry bar.
- Unscrew the cabinet unit from the soffit and remove the cabinets.
- Throw away or donate the old cabinet doors, molding and hardware.
Should I remove upper kitchen cabinets?
Removing upper cabinets from all – or most – of the perimeter of a kitchen instantly makes the room feel larger. Doing so essentially reclaims about 15 inches of space around the entire top half of the kitchen. Because that newly opened space is at eye level, the difference is visually significant.
Can you remove a shelf from a cabinet?
Remove shelves with no visible means of support by tapping firmly up or down with a hammer on the shelf, near the bulkhead of the cabinet. Keep tapping until the shelf moves, widening the seam between shelf and cabinet. Alternate tapping up and down until the shelf pulls away from the cabinet bulkhead.
Can kitchen cabinets be removed and reused?
Yes. To identify which type of cabinets you have, open your cabinet and look at the back. If it is the same type of material as the sides of the cabinets, you have prefabricated cabinets that you should be able to reuse if you remove carefully.
Why do kitchen cabinets not go to the ceiling?
Ceiling height cabinets are not easy to access as they are very high up in the ceiling. Anything up there at the top of these cabinets is quite hard to access hence you will need to have something to step on in order to reach these things. This also poses some very serious safety concerns.
