Kitchen Cabinet Painting in Charleston

Cabinets can hold back the most beautiful kitchen, but custom cut cabinets are expensive and messy to replace. Instead, if your cabinets are in good conditions, consider painting them for a revitalized look. Our knowledgeable staff of refinishing teams can create a new look for your kitchen utilizing your current cabinets.

As part of our kitchen cabinet painting services, we can add paint finishes to the following:

Cabinet Refinishing

Refinishing can provide a completely new look or an improved version of the original. If your current cabinets have started to chip, the coating begins to degrade. This can lead to wood rot or warping. Refinishing puts a halt on the decay. What’s more, it’s much less expensive than buying new cabinets.

Cabinet Painting

You can choose to have your cabinets stained, to bring out the grain of the wood, or painted, which gives you more color choices. The cost difference will depend on how detailed the cabinet is and what style you are looking for. You can invite a CertaPro Painters® professional into your home for a quote.

Update your Kitchen Cabinets 

If you’re tired of the way your kitchen cabinets look, you don’t have to pay to have a new kitchen installed. You can save money and give your kitchen a facelift by having your cabinets refinished. This project requires a lot of work and craftsmanship, so it’s best to hire experienced professionals from CertaPro Painters®. With us, you can rest assured that the job will be done with skill and precision.

There are several options for cabinet refinishing. They can be painted in place, removed, and sprayed in a garage. They can also be taken off-site for a more controlled refinishing. The time it takes to refinish cabinets will depend on how many you have. Typically, it takes anywhere between a couple of days to one week. You won’t be able to use your kitchen during this time, as the area is protected.
