Professional Cabinet Refinishing & Staining in Thousand Oaks, CA


What is Cabinet Refinishing?

Simply put: it’s a painting and woodworking method that changes the color or finish of your wall & base cabinets, after sanding or chemically-stripping your current finish, while keeping the original parts & structure of your cabinets in tact and usable.

The new finish could be a stain (exclusively for wood cabinets), or a lasting quality paint for other cabinet materials such as: metal, particle board, laminate, thermofoil, medium-density fiberboard (MDF), and also wood.


Why should I refinish my cabinets?

The short answer: refinishing cabinets will give your kitchen a brand new look and feel overall, without the expense of a full cabinet replacement. This is also a good option for you, if your cabinets are of quality materials, but outdated in color or have surfaces aging from wear and tear.
