The Cabinet Painting Process

Cabinets ready to be painted

We use a few different types of painting methods for cabinets, and Platinum Painting can help you get the desired look at a cost that fits your available budget. Our top recommendation is spray painting, which creates a hard, smooth paint surface and makes the cabinets look brand new. We also always go above and beyond to make sure the finish is perfectly even and consistent, without any drips or unsightly blemishes. We also apply multiple coats of paint so that you can rest assured that the results will stick around for several years to come.

If your top concern is pricing, we can certainly accommodate your preferences through “brush and roll” paint. This method looks just like it sounds – we brush and roll paint onto the cabinet surfaces. Although this technique may not result in as smooth a texture as spraying, your cabinets will still end up looking more attractive than ever before.

Painting Cabinets or Resurfacing Cabinets?

The decision between cabinet painting and cabinet resurfacing can be a difficult one. Both have their own unique benefits, but ultimately, you as the homeowner have the final say. We will do whatever we can to make your personal vision become a reality. However, we typically recommend painting over resurfacing for the following reasons:

  • Painting is much greener and less wasteful than resurfacing. Instead of lots of materials going directly to the dump or the creation of brand-new hardwoods, you can know that you’re doing your part for the environment.
  • Compared to resurfacing, painting typically requires much less time on your part as the homeowner. As a result, it causes fewer disruptions to your day-to-day routine because all the cabinet parts remain in place.
  • On average, cabinet painting is more affordable than resurfacing. If the color is the only aspect you don’t like about your cabinets, this option could be a very wise investment.

Cabinet Painting FAQs

At Platinum Painting, we realize how important the cabinets are in creating the right feeling in your kitchen or bathroom. These high-traffic spaces need to convey your style and create the tone you want. By choosing to work with us, you can focus on your excitement for your “new” cabinets. Below we’ve answered some of the most common questions that we’ve received about cabinet painting. We hope they help you see the difference we can make in your improvement project. Please let us know if you have any other questions or if you are ready to schedule your free estimate!

Is there a difference between cabinet repainting and refinishing?

Yes, there is. Repainting entails applying a different color to the cabinets through several coats of paint. This option tends to be more cost effective, more environmentally friendly, and faster than refinishing, making it a popular choice for homeowners. In contrast, refinishing includes re-staining the wood surfaces or altering the style. For those wanting a completely different look, refinishing may be the right option. Just remember that this process takes longer and will cost more than repainting. Not certain which to choose? Our estimators can help! Plus, our team will stay in contact with you to ensure that you’re completely satisfied from beginning to end.

Do I need to clear coat over the paint to protect the cabinets?

We generally do not recommend applying a clear coat over painted cabinets. The chemicals can combine and have an adverse reaction or make the cabinets appear more yellow than you intended, especially over time. Instead, our team at Platinum Painting uses high-quality products and the proper techniques and primers to make sure that the beautiful results last for years to come without showing signs of age or degradation. Should you need help in choosing paints, our team will be happy to provide guidance and insight.

How long does cabinet repainting take?

Repainting cabinets typically takes about two to three days to complete, but the number and size of cabinets can influence your precise timeline. Also, if you’re wanting to refinish or resurface the cabinets, know that this process requires more time. After the project is finished, it is best to not use the cabinets and keep them empty for a few days before you put things back inside. When you get your free estimate, we can provide a more accurate timeframe for your specific project.

What prep do I need to do before you start?

When we arrive, we would like to get straight to work. To help us do that, you can remove everything from the cabinets. Although you may leave objects inside if we are only painting the exteriors and the doors, the process of repainting can leave a mess—especially the sanding stage. You may need to clean all your dishes once we’re done with the project. Instead, we recommend that you store the contents somewhere else while we work. In addition, please try to have the work area as clean and clutter free as possible. We can’t wait to make your cabinets look brand new!
