What Does It Cost To Hire A Kitchen Cabinet Painting Contractor?

Painting these kitchen cabinets cost $3,800. Replacing them could cost between $8,000 and $22,000.

Short answer:  much less than replacing the cabinets  

It’s generally about three times cheaper to paint than it is to replace.  That huge saving allows you to upgrade to new hardware and self-closing hinges to make kitchen cabinets look and feel brand new.

In addition to painting kitchen cabinets, we can install a new backsplash and paint your home’s interior and exterior.  Consider us your one-stop Annaplis, painters, and handyman!     

The cost to paint kitchen cabinets in DC depends on how many cabinets are. 

Expect to spend $80- $100 per wall cabinet and $150 – $200 for base cabinets. 

There are typically two reasons to paint the interior of cabinets.  First, to hide stains or have a fresh new look.  Secondly, if you have glass doors.   Painting interior cabinet doors $95.00 each.

The Best Kitchen Cabinet Painters Don't Make The Rookie Mistakes.

paint scrapping off kitchen cabinets
These cabinets will need to be stripped down to resolve the peeling and have a factory finish.

If not done properly, paint doesn’t take long to scratch off.  Fortunately, when you hire the best kitchen cabinet painters, we guarantee that problem will not happen to you!

Secondly, most paints just don’t self-level, so the brush strokes are not visible.  For a factory finish, use cabinet-grade paint and spray or add a latex conditioner when brushing.  

It’s not rocket science to get the kitchen cabinets to have a showroom finish, but it isn’t easy if you have never done it.

The paint scratching off or having a rough textured look on your kitchen cabinets makes hanging out in the kitchen a little less enjoyable.

In the picture on the far right,  the paint started to scratch after ten months.  At Klappenberger & Son, we follow guaranteed best practices that eliminate these issues.

Can A DIYer Paint Kitchen Cabinets in Annapolis?

Yes, but to have your cabinets look like factory finish, you will need to do a few things.

First, the cabinets must be cleaned with a degreaser.

Second, sand all surfaces so the cabinets are scuffed up.

Third, wipe clean with a tack cloth.

Fourth, prime with a shellac primer.

Lightly sand with 220 or higher grit and remove dust with tack cloths.

Sixth, apply two coats of cabinet-grade paint.

Seventh, Sorry, I forgot to mention removing hardware.  After the painting has occurred for 24 hours, you can reinstall the hardware.

If you want your Annapolis kitchen cabinets to have a factory finish, you will at least need to spray the doors and drawers.  

Getting the Right Tools

How about I just give you a call.

FYI – buying a DIY sprayer will not give you the same results.  The cheap sprayers don’t have the pressure to put the paint out, resulting in an orange peel effect. 

If you refuse to buy a sprayer and learn how to use it ( I don’t blame you), watch this fantastic video, How To Paint Kitchen Cabinets Without Spraying.

We also cover that topic if you are unsure if you should use Latex or Oil paint.

Or you can always call us and know that the job will be done right.  That’s why we can offer a 5-year warranty on our kitchen cabinets.
