Essential Cabinet Painting Tips and Tricks

It is no secret that 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. The project is even more appealing when the prospect of kitchen cabinet painting seems easy enough; however, many DIY-ers have fallen into the pit of despair mid-project.

So, how 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 kitchen cabinet painting? And can you get the best possible result by doing it yourself? Our professionals have the answer to all of these questions and more. Here are the 3 best tips you can follow to get the best kitchen cabinet paint finish possible.

1. 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.

2. Choose the Right Color

The color of your kitchen cabinets will set the mood for your kitchen. You’ll want to be sure that you choose the best color for what you are trying to achieve with your kitchen. To do so, make sure that you do test strokes on your cabinets with potential paint colors. This will help you determine how the undertones pop through the new color and what the end result will look like. We recommend leaving these test strips out for a full 24 hours so you can see how they interact with all times of the day. If you’re unsure where to start, you can consult with a color professional. This is a service that is offered by CertaPro Painters®!

Professionals will be able to provide the right materials on budget and stay within the allotted time frame for your project.
