Give Your Kitchen Cabinets A Facelift

Giving your kitchen cabinets new life!

painted-cabinetsIf you’re thinking about kitchen remodeling in your home, naturally, you have to consider the costs. Rather than replacing the existing cabinets, you might want to consider painting them instead. New kitchen cabinets are a huge expense, but they don’t have to be, if you simply paint the old ones. Most cabinets can be painted regardless of their age or condition.

Freshly painted cabinets can transform your kitchen without throwing away money, especially if your old cabinets are still completely functional. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could get those granite countertops, new flooring or those stainless steel appliances you’ve always dreamed about? One call to J. W. Graham Painting Co. can make that dream come true. J. W. Graham Painting Co. has decades of experience in beautifying kitchen cabinets.

The first step in painting your kitchen cabinets is deciding on the type of paint to use. A flat, or matte, paint in the kitchen may look nice, but it’s not the best idea because flat paints are hard to keep clean. Additionally, flat paints don’t perform well in high-traffic or high-moisture areas, and that’s going to cause you some serious trouble for your kitchen cabinets, since they’re being touched all day long. We recommend either semi-gloss or high-gloss paint for kitchen cabinets.

Of course, the next step is to choose your paint colors. Which paint color is probably the most subjective choice you have to make in any paint project. Whatever the trends, whatever anyone else is doing this year, you need to take your own personality and needs into consideration first and foremost. Beyond that, you’ll want to coordinate the color of your cabinets with the rest of the decor in your kitchen.

Our team will carefully cover and protect areas not getting painted, floors, counter tops, etc. Next, remove all hardware, knobs, handles, etc. We then lightly sand and scour wash every part of your cabinets, this is possibly the most important step in the process. If the cabinets are not clean, the paint will not adhere to the surface (Besides, you don’t want to think about all that dirt being stuck underneath the paint). We then spot prime any bare wood that appeared during the preparation process; this gives the finish paint a sound surface to lie on and insures an even sheen.

At this point, we will apply the finish paint. J. W. Graham Painting Co. prefers Benjamin Moore Aura or Sherwin Williams Duration. We recommend two coats of finish in order to get the best coverage and insure the best protection. No surface receives more “traffic” than kitchen cabinets. Once the area is thoroughly cleaned, we re-attach the knobs & handles. Another way to give your kitchen a more dramatic change, consider replacing the knobs & handles with new ones.
