At Prep-Rite Painting, we want to help you get the best results for all your home improvement projects. When brainstorming ideas for how to give a room a new look, many people think of painting the walls, which is definitely a great way to transform your space. If the room you want to update is the kitchen (or bathroom), you also have the option of painting the cabinets. Your kitchen cabinets are one of the room’s main visual features, so if you give them a new look, the whole space will follow. Here are some tips from our team at Prep-Right Painting on how to get the best results for your cabinet painting project:
- Don’t skimp on preparation. The prep work for cabinet painting is just as important as the painting itself. First, empty your cabinets and clean thoroughly to remove any lingering grease or dirt. Remove all knobs and handles, and take out the drawers, making sure to label them so you know where each one goes. Tape off any spots you don’t want paint on, including small things like hinges as well as big stuff like your appliances. Finally, sand the cabinets to remove previous paint and leave a smooth surface to apply your new color.
- Use quality paint. For the best results in your cabinet painting endeavors, use quality materials. Spring for top-notch, durable paint that will give long lasting results. For recommendations, you can consult with our team at Prep-Rite Painting.
- Choose a hard finish. Kitchen cabinets need to hold up to frequent wiping and cleaning, so going with a soft paint finish like matte or eggshell is impractical. Instead, go with a harder finish like gloss or satin so you won’t have to repaint in the next year or two.
If you want guaranteed quality cabinet painting, you can always turn to us at Prep-Rite Painting. We have the experience and tools to get the job done right and leave your kitchen looking like new.
