There are many different types of paint out there, each with their own special purposes. For example, watercolor might be fun to paint pictures with, but you won’t find anyone painting their car with it. That’s because watercolor paint is specifically designed for use on watercolor paper. The same principle applies to regular wall paint and cabinet paint.
Though much more similar to each other than watercolor paint and car paint, regular wall paint and cabinet paint are actually quite different. While you may find both of them at your home improvement store, they shouldn’t be mistaken for each other. Cabinet paint has some additives in it that make it more resistant to scratching or other damages. This is necessary for your cabinets because they are bumped up against, scratched, and generally touched more often than your walls. The paint you use on your cabinets should therefore allow for those interactions without sacrificing quality. Regular paint that goes on your walls doesn’t have these same properties that are necessary for painting your cabinets.
The best way to make sure you’re using the right paint for your cabinets is by talking to professionals. Our professional painters here at Prep-Rite Painting can make sure you select the right cabinet paint for your needs.
