This project requires a lot of work and craftsmanship, so it’s best to hire experienced professionals from CertaPro Painters®.

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.

You won’t be able to use your kitchen during this time, as the area is protected.

Cost Of Cabinet Refinishing and Painting Services
Several factors will determine the pricing of your cabinet refinishing and painting services. The size of the cabinets and the number of doors and drawers are basic factors. Other factors include whether you choose a stain or paint, whether you want them done on-site or removed, and how long the project will take. Most projects on kitchen cabinets are either painting or refinishing projects, learn more about the differences between cabinet painting and refinishing below.
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.
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.
The Kitchen Cabinet Restoration & Painting Process

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.

What paint colors are trending this year for kitchen cabinets?
White, black, espresso, and grey are the most popular color choices for cabinets in 2021.
What kind of paint should be used on kitchen cabinets?
It is generally recommended you choose a high sheen paint for your cabinets. High sheen paints are easier to clean and may last longer than matte finishes for cabinets.
Popular Kitchen Cabinet Color Choices
Below are some of the top selected colors in the last few years for kitchen cabinet painting and restoration projects.
White painted cabinets are the top selected choice over the last few years. White offers a bright and modern look that stands the test of time. White cabinets will show dirt and grime easier and may need to be cleaned more often that darker colored surfaces.
Gray / Slate Cabinets
Dark shades of black, gray, often in matte finishes have also been a popular choice for kitchen cabinet projects over the last 5 years. This style is modern and sleek and works well with most wall colors. Matte finishes may scuff easier than higher sheen options.
Forest and light shades of green have been an emerging color trend over the last year. This is another modern color that works well for interior spaces like the kitchen.
Sheen Selection for Cabinet Painting Projects
There are several types of sheens available for painting cabinets, each with its own unique look and characteristics. A CertaPro Painters® representative can discuss options and the pros and cons of each with you in more detail during your initial estimate appointment. Below is an overview of options and some of the items to consider with each:
Matte Sheen for Cabinets:
Matte sheen is a flat finish with no shine or gloss. It provides a subtle, smooth finish that can help hide imperfections in the cabinet’s surface. However, it can be difficult to clean and may show wear more easily than other sheens.
Satin Sheen for Cabinets:
Satin sheen is a low-luster finish that offers a slight shine, making it easier to clean than matte finishes. It’s a popular choice for cabinets because it provides a balance between a glossy and matte finish. It’s also less prone to showing wear and tear compared to matte sheen.
Semi-gloss Sheen for Cabinets:
Semi-gloss sheen offers a higher level of shine and durability than satin sheen. It’s a good choice for cabinets that will see a lot of use, as it’s more resistant to moisture, stains, and scratches. However, it can highlight imperfections on the surface of the cabinets, so it’s important to properly prepare and prime the surface before applying semi-gloss paint.
Gloss Sheen for Cabinets:
Gloss sheen offers the highest level of shine and durability of all the sheens, making it the most resistant to moisture, stains, and scratches. It can create a dramatic, high-end look for cabinets, but it can also highlight any imperfections in the surface. Additionally, it can be difficult to apply evenly without leaving brush or roller marks.
