Does your kitchen need a makeover, but you don’t have a big enough budget? Are you tired of your dark room color or dark kitchen cabinets? Don’t worry – there’s a great solution that will not break the bank!
If your wood cabinets are still in good shape, and the frames and doors are structurally sound, you can change your kitchen’s look with without spending tons of money. Instead of completely replacing your cabinets, opt for professional cabinet painting and make your kitchen bright and sunny.
It may seem like an easy job for any novice painter, but mastering the perfect finish on cabinets should be left to a professional. This is certainly not a weekend job, so you must also plan ahead. It usually takes about a week to finish painting cabinets, including the prep time. There is a lot of prep work for professional cabinet painting, which includes cleaning, sanding, and priming every inch of the cabinet’s surface.
The most important step is cleaning and it’s okay to do this yourself. Cooking grease splatters and fingerprints will leave a layer of grime that prevents the paint from adhering to the cabinet. Most of it can be removed with an industrial degreaser, but it might need multiple rounds to remove it all. Once the cabinets are clean, your painting professional will gently scrub them with 100-grit sandpaper to help the paint stick.
For the next step, the painter will prime the cabinets. Be sure to buy a high-quality primer for this project – it can make all the difference. For some primers, you may even need two coats to completely fill the grain on the cabinet. The type of paint finishes you choose to use will also help achieve a smooth look on your cabinets. We suggest a glossy sheen for complete and even coverage.
