Quick Kitchen Refresh: Painting Your Kitchen Cabinets

Quick Kitchen Refresh: Painting Your Kitchen Cabinets

Your kitchen is the heart of your home. But the hustle and bustle can mean wear and tear. The passage of time often means our decor, including our paint and finishes, can appear tired and dated.

If you’re looking for a way to refresh your kitchen that doesn’t involve the mess of an in-home construction product, or thousands of dollars on the pricetag, repainting cabinets is a great option.

When Do You Need Cabinet Repainting?

Kitchen cabinet repainting may be something you’ve wanted to do for a long time. Or you may be on the fence. If you’re unsure, here are some signs it’s time to call a house painter or HOA painting contractor to get the job done:

  • You don’t enjoy being in your kitchen as much as you used to: If you notice you’re dissatisfied with the outdated look of your kitchen, or frustrated with how the wear and tear always makes it look dirty (no matter how often you clean it), it’s time to call in a cabinet painter.
  • You’re prepping for a home sale or new move-in: Fresh paint brings a property to life in the eyes of a prospective buyer or tenant. Painting cabinets ahead of a home sale or new move-in makes the kitchen look cleaner, brighter, and more like new.
  • You’ve noticed wear and tear: If your kitchen cabinets have marks, scratches, faded paint, chipped finishes, or other wear and tear, it can really detract from the aesthetics in your kitchen, even with new appliances and furnishings. Kitchen cabinet painting is a great way to restore the look you want, and the new paint will help better protect cabinet doors and drawers.
  • You need a fresh start: Sometimes, you just need the feeling of a fresh start. There’s no need to spend the time and money it takes to do a full-scale remodel if your cabinets are structurally sound. Repainting kitchen cabinets takes a matter of days, and can give the sense of transformation you’re looking for, without taking you over budget or surrounding you with construction crews.

What Kitchen Cabinet Colors Should You Choose?

Kitchen cabinet colors are an important choice that has a dramatic impact on the look of a room. If you need ideas, we have a few suggestions:

  • All White: This is one of the most timeless choices when it comes to kitchen cabinet painting. It really opens up the room, and natural light plays well with it. It’s a great choice if you want your kitchen to feel brighter and more spacious. And it’s not likely you’ll feel your cabinets look dated anytime soon if you go with an all white kitchen.
  • Bold accents: Getting bold with your kitchen cabinets can make a strong statement. Even if you only use bold colors for accents on a kitchen island, you’re still making a statement. Bold colors are a good choice if your overall decor is modern and eclectic, and you want your kitchen to match that.
  • Black: Black or off-black cabinets are bold, too. But black also has a classic look that goes with anything. If you’re redecorating other areas in your kitchen, bar, or dining room, you don’t have to worry about clashing or not matching if you decide to paint kitchen cabinets black.
  • Natural or Mixed Wood Finishes: A kitchen looks so warm, cozy, and inviting when cabinets are stained to bring out the beauty of their natural wood finish. Depending on the style and layout of your kitchen, you may want to experiment with mixing painted and natural (stained) cabinet finishes for an appealing contrast.

What Do You Look for in a Kitchen Cabinet Painter?

Hiring a cabinet painting contractor goes beyond a Google search. You need to feel confident that you can trust your home interior painting team with this investment in your property. Here are some things to consider:

  • Do they have experience with your finishes and wood species? Whether you have antique cabinets, are looking for durable acrylics, or want to stain natural wood, different cabinet painters have different expertise. Make sure you hire a painter with experience completing a cabinet painting project like the one you’re planning.
  • Do they go deeper? It’s not enough to slap on some paint and primers. Your cabinet painters need to understand the condition of the wood surface beneath old paint, stains and finishes to properly assess and repair surface damage so your kitchen cabinets stay strong and look beautiful for years to come.
  • What other services do they provide? Chances are, if you’re planning a cabinet repainting project, you’re considering other interior painting services to improve your property. Working with a painter that can plan and complete a big project with as little stress as possible is essential.
  • Can they paint multiple units? If you’re hiring an HOA painter, you need to know they can handle multiple units, and that they’re committed to respecting residents’ time and space.
