We carefully remove doors and hardware from all cabinets. You will have an opportunity to update hardware on a project like this to match the new look.

Surfaces are Sanded & Prepped

Surfaces are sanded, some parts by hand and others with power equipment to prep the surface for a new paint or stain application.

Paint / Stain is Applied to Doors

The project will vary here depending on if you want a stained finish or a painted one. Painting often includes primer steps to help keep the finish durable.

We then work our way around the hung cabinets, while still on the wall. This is usually done with hand rollers or brushes.

Reassemble Cabinets

After the paint or stain has had time to dry and cure, the cabinets and hardware are put back together for a beautiful final product with a brand new look.

Popular Cabinet Color Choices in Indianapolis

Below are some of the top selected colors for cabinet painting projects in Indianapolis.


White painted cabinets are by far the most popular color choice in our service area of Indianapolis. White offers a bright and modern look that stands the test of time. White cabinets will show dirt and grime easier and may need more frequent cleaning than other color options.

Gray / Slate

Gray has been a very popular choice in the area. It offers a modern and sleep look that pairs well with common kitchen wall colors. Matte finishes may scuff more easily than high sheen ones, which is something to keep in mind when selecting your finish.

Shades of green - like the color pictured here has been an emerging color trend in the market. It is a modern color that gives a classic and classy look to interior spaces.

Paint Sheens & Kitchen Cabinet Painting Projects

There are several different types of paint sheens that can be used on kitchen cabinets, each with its own set of benefits and drawbacks. Here are some common options:

  1. Flat/Matte: This paint finish has a low sheen and is often used to achieve a more traditional or rustic look. It can be good at hiding imperfections in the wood or surface, but it is not as durable as other options and is prone to scuffing and staining.
  2. Satin: This paint finish has a medium sheen and is often used in kitchens because it is more durable and easy to clean than flat paint. It is resistant to scuffing and staining and can help to hide imperfections in the wood or surface. However, it is not as glossy as other options and may not be as easy to touch up.
  3. Semi-Gloss: This paint finish has a higher sheen and is often used in kitchens because it is very durable and easy to clean. It is resistant to scuffing, staining, and moisture, making it a good choice for areas that may come into contact with water or grease. However, it is not as forgiving as other options when it comes to hiding imperfections in the wood or surface.
  4. High-Gloss: This paint finish has the highest sheen and is often used to achieve a modern or sleek look. It is very durable and easy to clean, but it can be prone to highlighting imperfections in the wood or surface. It is also not as forgiving as other options when it comes to touch-ups.

Ultimately, the best paint sheen for your kitchen cabinets will depend on your personal style and the level of durability and maintenance you are willing to accept.

Common Questions About Cabinet Painting & Restoration Projects

Will my painted cabinets chip?

Yes, all painted surfaces are capable of chipping should they be subject to force from a sharp object or something similar. Quality preparation, primers, and top coats will help to avoid chipping but it is still a possibility depending on wear and tear.

Do I need to empty my kitchen cabinets to have them painted?

No, while some customers do choose to empty them, we will use tape and plastic such that the items in your cabinets will not be a concern.

Is it better to replace my cabinets instead of paint them?

It depends, painting is about a half to a quarter of the cost of replacement. Depending on your budget and your desired aesthetic outcome it is something all homeowners should consider.

How long does it take to paint a set of kitchen cabinets?

Most kitchen cabinet projects can be completed in 2 to 4 days. Large kitchens with custom cabinets can take longer

Should cabinets be sprayed or brushed and rolled?

A desirable outcome can be achieved with either method but we prefer to spray doors and drawers and brush & roll cupboards. Wall and base cupboards can also be sprayed but require extra set up and more limited access to homeowners while the work is in progress.
