The cabinets in a home’s kitchen or bathroom get a lot of use. They can become scratched or chipped. The finish becomes dull with years of use. If they are older, they may have a finish that is not the desired color. Get a fresh new look without replacing them by having them professionally repainted instead.
The cost to completely replace the cabinets can be considerable. In fact, the cost to repaint them is typically 1/3 to 1/2 the cost of replacement. If the right paints and correct preparation are used, the finish will be very durable and will last just as long as new cabinets in most cases.
If the cabinets are still in sound shape and are functioning properly, and the homeowner is happy with the layout of the kitchen and the look of the doors and drawers, having them repaint can make them look as good as new!
Individuals who consider themselves handy may consider repainting the cabinets themselves. But painting cabinets properly takes expertise and know-how, especially with the preparation required. It takes more than just following instructions on Pinterest. Neglecting the required steps in preparation may deliver results that look streaked and gritty. The paint may also chip and crack if it doesn’t adhere properly.
There are several preparation steps to take before even opening the paint can. It’s important to follow them to get the best, longest-lasting results.
Only after all of these steps are completed, can painting begin.
Painting cabinets properly with high-quality results is a difficult task. It requires a lot of time and effort. Professional painters are knowledgeable in the proper procedures so that the end result will look great and last for years.
