3 Tips for Cabinet Refinishing

With summer in full swing and fall just around the corner, the painting bug is biting us all. This year, it is hitting homeowners right in the kitchen cabinets. It’s true! Cabinet refinishing is all the talk of Arlington homeowners––for good reason, too. An updated kitchen atmosphere can help your house feel more like a home. The quality and colors of your kitchen cabinets have a tendency to set the mood for your entire household. After all, the kitchen is one of the most-visited areas of any home. 

How, though, do you get a cabinet refinishing project done that you’ll be happy with for years to come? What are the tips and tricks for cabinet refinishing? And can you get the best possible result by doing it yourself? Our professionals have the answer to all of these questions and more. 

Spend Time on Preparation 

Preparation is one of the most vital steps to ensuring a great finish. We promise that any time you take on preparation is not a waste. Preparation steps include removing all of the kitchen cabinet doors and drawers and labeling them properly. Then, you’ll need to cover the insides of the cabinets and other kitchen areas with plastic and tape them off. This prevents dust from seeping in. You’ll also want to make sure you clean and prepare the kitchen cabinets themselves for painting. 

Choose the Right Materials

Another vital step to refinishing your kitchen cabinets is to choose the right materials. While paint color is important, there are a myriad of other things to consider. Paint type, brush material, and primer all come into play when it comes to the final finish. A professional painting company can help you choose the right paint for your cabinet refinishing project; however, we recommend being wary of anything that seems too inexpensive. 

Hire the Professionals 

There is little room to mess around when it comes to your kitchen cabinets. You want––and deserve–– the best paint finish you can get. In order to get that, we recommend working with a professional painting company that are experts in cabinet refinishing. Professionals will be able to provide the right materials on budget and stay within the allotted time frame for your project. Taking the DIY route can lead to major mistakes and flaws that will impact your kitchen for years to come.
