A new backsplash can have just as big of impact as painting the kitchen cabinets.

There is so much more to having the label “Best kitchen cabinet painters” than the simple technique of applying the paint.  Many painters know how to spray kitchen cabinets, but few have learned the correct process.  A process that allows the paint on kitchen cabinets to last for years. 

For example, dozens of primers claim to be acceptable on kitchen cabinets, but only one fuse with the finish currently on the stained wood cabinets. 

Crazy But True

Not all premium-grade cabinet paints can withstand daily wear and tear.  Just because you buy the best paint, a company offers doesn’t mean it won’t scratch off in just a few short months.

Klappenberger & Son has tested over 12 cabinet-grade paints and narrowed the list to four approved ones.

Painting Kitchen Cabinets In Harford Is A Process We Have Mastered

Cleaning is step #1.  There are more oils on the kitchen cabinets than we would like to admit.  No matter how carefully we try to open cabinets while cooking we invariably get food and various oils on the cabinets.  Overtime, those oils start to penetrate through the layers of cabinet-grade paint and break the adhesion to either the primer or the original factory finish.  

See the picture on right.

The second significant factor to consider is the paint.   Some premium-grade paints might seem fine, but they don’t self-level.  We have tested most of the leading cabinet-grade paints and know which ones are the most durable and have excellent self-leveling.

You can rest assured that when you hire the best kitchen cabinet painters everything will be done exactly as it should.  That is why we can offer a five-year warranty.

Painting Kitchen Cabinets:  A Learning Curve


Are your current kitchen cabinets stained?  Chances are excellent that it has a lacquer finish. Choosing the right primer to adhere to is critical.  As I mentioned above, there are many different types of primers such as latex, oils, and shellac primers.  Shellac is the best choice because it is the only primer that fuses with the lacquer finish.  The other primers may stick for a while but can lose their adhesion to kitchen cabinets over time. 

FYI on Shellac Primers

One of the benefits of Shellac primer is that it dries in minutes and can be top-coated in 30- 60 minutes.   

One of the disadvantages is that it has a powerful odor and good ventilation is necessary.
