We all see the home renovation shows that allow a major kitchen or bath remodel to miraculously take place within a 30 minute program. Sure, sometimes the best solution is to rip everything out down to the studs (or even further) and start from scratch. However, replacing cabinets in a kitchen or bath simply because they don’t match your planned decor may eat up far more of your renovation budget than you’d like. The option of cabinet painting is an attractive one for several reasons:
- less costly than buying new cabinets
- more environmentally friendly – existing cabinets are given a new life
- minimum disruption – a whole new look in just a few days
When bathroom or kitchen cabinets are in good physical shape, cabinet painting can completely transform the look of the room at a fraction of the cost and disruption of installing new.
It’s important to recognize, however, that painting cabinets requires special attention in order to result in a good, long-lasting finish. If you really want it to last, it requires more than simply brushing or spraying on a few coats of paint. In every cabinet painting project, we follow a meticulous process of surface preparation, painting, and sanding in between coats in order to achieve the best result. It is also critical to use the right product to achieve the result you want.
