Cleveland's Cabinet Refinishing Experts
Are your kitchen cabinets looking dark and drab? Are you looking to hire a professional painter to refinish your cabinets with a fresh new look? You have come to the right place!
Painting cabinets is a very popular service as it is a lot less expensive than replacing the cabinets but essentially gives the same result. If your cabinets are in good shape, you can hire us to revitalize them with a new color such as white or gray.
The Textbook Way
We always aim to do things the "textbook" way. (Hence our name!) It is important to make sure the proper process is followed or the paint won't last. It is easy to make cabinets look good at first, the real key is making sure to do it the right way so they look great in 5 or 10 years!
We start by protecting the surfaces in the kitchen such as the countertops. Then we remove all doors and drawer fronts as well as all hardware. The surface will require a thorough cleaning, often with a degreaser. Then the existing coating will need a light sanding to remove any gloss or varnish. Paint will not stick to a slick or shiny surface.
After wiping down the cabinets and doors we are ready to prime. We will use a primer that is specifically designed for adhesion. Finally, we will apply two coats of a top-quality paint that is designed for cabinets and trim. An enamel paint is a harder, more durable type of paint and when a semi-gloss is applied it will provide a great look and a very durable coating.
How much does it cost to get cabinets painted?
Hopefully after reading a brief overview of the process you understand that it is not as simple as painting the walls in your home. When trying to budget for a cabinet refinishing price it is wise to compare it to completely replacing the cabinets with new.
Every project is different just as every kitchen is different. With that being said, most projects are between $2,500 and $5,000. A decent starting point is to count the number of doors and the number of drawers and multiply that by $75 and $100. This should give a decent range to expect.
