Painting Kitchen Cabinets in Arlington
Kitchen cabinets are the dominant item in any kitchen. Painting your kitchen cabinets in Arlington can dramatically change the look of your kitchen without busting the bank.
Plus, if we upgrade the hardware and install a new backsplash, now we are talking about a significant transformation! And while most kitchen remodels come with a $40,000 price tag, we can make these impactful changes for around $5,000 investment!
Keep in mind significant updates in the kitchen certainly improve the feel and the value of your home.
You will save even more money if you choose to do the work yourself. However, painting kitchen cabinets is kind of like hitting a golf ball. It’s not as easy as it looks.
Painting Kitchen Cabinets In Arlington Is A Process We Have Mastered
First, if the primer and top coats are not bonding properly, the paint will scratch off in just a few short months.
Secondly, many premium-grade paints do not self-level as cabinet paint does. If you want to have a factory finish on your kitchen cabinet you will need to follow certain protocols.
It’s not rocket science to get the kitchen cabinets to have a showroom finish but it does require a certain amount of knowledge and experience.
Having 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 short months. At Klappenberger & Son, we follow best practices that eliminate these issues – guaranteed.
The Learning Curve Of Painting Kitchen Cabinets?
First, most cabinets come out of the factory with a lacquer finish.
While many primers stick to lacquer for a while, once the oil from our hands penetrates the paint and reaches the lacquer finish, the paint scratches off easily.
Secondly, to get the kitchen cabinets to a factory finish, it is best to spray.
The second best way is to brush with cabinet-grade paint and add a latex conditioner.
FYI – buying a DIY sprayer will not give you the same results. The cheap sprayers don’t have the necessary pressure to put the paint out, and the result will be an orange peel effect.
