Your kitchen is one of the most utilized rooms in your home. Kitchen renovations typically add the most value among home renovations, but kitchen remodels can be expensive. Since kitchens are mostly cabinets, if your cabinets are worn or outdated, you can easily and economically introduce an updated look to your kitchen and extend the life of your cabinets with a fresh coat of paint. This project requires craftsmanship, so it’s best to hire experienced professionals from CertaPro Painters® of Western Chester County. With us, you can rest assured that the job will be done with skill and precision.

In addition to kitchens, our interior painting professionals can refinish the cabinets throughout your home at a fraction of the price of installing new cabinets. As part of our carpentry painting services, we can add paint finishes to the following:

CertaPro Painters® of Western Chester County – Cabinetry Refinishing and Painting Process

For cabinetry projects, we remove hardware and cabinet doors. Our painters then re-install the door hardware and re-hang the doors once we have completed painting the cabinets. Not all projects are the same, and tasks can vary depending on the type of cabinets you have, but the following breakdown is accurate for most cabinet projects.

Removing The Cabinet to be painted

Doors & Hardware Are Removed

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.

preparing the cabinet for painting

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.

Painting the Cabinet

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.

Painting the Cabinet Frame

Paint / Stain Applied to Mounted Cabinets

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

Finished Cabinets

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.

The whole process was great! The scheduling was very flexible and the painters were highly professional. I would definitely hire CertaPro for future painting jobs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Refinishing cabinets involves stripping off the old finish, sanding the surfaces, and applying a new stain or finish to the wood. This process enhances the natural look of the wood and can change its color. Repainting, on the other hand, involves cleaning, sanding, and applying primer and paint over the existing cabinets. It's a way to completely change the color and look of your cabinets, often used for a more modern or specific aesthetic.

The duration depends on the size of the project and the specific processes involved. Generally, a complete repainting or refinishing project can take anywhere from 3 to 7 days. This includes preparation time, drying time between coats, and the actual application of paint or finish. Complex projects or those requiring extensive repair work may take longer.

While it's possible to repaint or refinish cabinets while they are still mounted, removing them often leads to a more thorough and high-quality job. Taking down the cabinets allows for easier access to all surfaces and edges, ensuring a more uniform application of paint or finish. However, if removing cabinets is not feasible, care should be taken to protect adjacent surfaces and hardware during the process.

Yes, laminate and veneer cabinets can be repainted or refinished, but the process differs slightly from that used for solid wood. It's crucial to use the right primer and paint that adhere well to these surfaces. Sanding should be done carefully to avoid damaging the laminate or veneer. For refinishing, options may be limited compared to solid wood, but certain techniques can still refresh or alter their appearance.

Proper maintenance can extend the life of your repainted or refinished cabinets. Clean them regularly with a soft, damp cloth and avoid harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners. Touch up any chips or scratches promptly to prevent further damage. For painted cabinets, use a mild detergent for cleaning, and for refinished cabinets, specific care depending on the type of finish (like oil or wax) may be required.
