Your kitchen cabinets have been through a lot. They don’t just hold food and plates; they hold memories. They’ve been opened at least a million times by friends and family at get-togethers, tiny hands reaching for after-school snacks and someone (maybe you… probably you) grabbing a midnight snack before the kids top off the box of fudge-dipped granola bars.
But the cabinets seem to lack the quality appearance they once had. So should you replace them? If they are operational, there is no reason why they can’t just be repainted back to their original shine or even sport a new shade.
When it comes to a kitchen remodel, one of the main aspects will end up being your cabinets. Luckily, there are ways around having to pay for the labor of their removal and new cabinet installation. Oh yeah, and the price of the new cabinets isn’t part of those fees at all. Are you still within budget?
By choosing to repaint your kitchen cabinets, you can expect to save:
Why Have The Professionals Paint Cabinets?
For any homeowner that does not have experience in the line of work, hiring professional painters to get the job done is the most sensible option. Painting kitchen cabinets is more complex than one might think, and if not done properly, can be detrimental to your home’s value and cost you more on repairs.
All too often, DIYers make the mistake of taking on painting their cabinets because “how hard could it be?”. There are many steps, considerations, options and challenges throughout the project that must be performed and dealt with correctly. If they are not, cabinets have an interesting way about showcasing even the smallest paint flaw.
Professional painters come equip with the right tools to make sure only the finest quality is achieved. They will spend plenty of their time working with you and your cabinet type so that the end result is picture perfect.
Best Cabinet Surfaces for Painting
Kitchen cabinets that are made of wood are the most favorable surface to paint on. MDF, compressed/faux, unfinished, painted or stained wood are all perfect candidates for repainting as well. Think of it this way: if you are unsure or believe you could take some sandpaper to the cabinets to help new paint adhere well, then you can call a painting contractor today to begin the process.
Cabinets with stained wood and gloss finishes will need to be de-glossed by a professional. The average homeowner may not have the knowledge applicable to make these calls on their own, which can lead to a variety of problems that a painting professional would know how to avoid from the get-go.
Kitchen cabinets serve as convenient storage and play a key role in a kitchen’s aesthetic atmosphere. Choosing to have professional-style painted cabinets will prolong the lifespan of a wide range of cabinet types that can be saved from the trash, while sustaining quality that is “just like new”.
You would be surprised how often cabinets that could be repainted are replaced due to uninformed decisions. Give our friendly office staff at O’Fallon Painting Contractors a call today at 636-306-1770 for a free estimate!
