Painting Kitchen Cabinets in Fairfax
In most kitchens, the kitchen cabinets take up the largest amount of space on the walls. Therefore, painting your kitchen cabinets in Fairfax, or anywhere else, can quickly change the look of the room without busting the bank.
While we are mentioning price, if you also add in a backsplash and new kitchen hardware we can typically keep the price around $5,000.
That’s no small investment, but keep in mind most kitchen remodels are about eight times higher ($40,000)!
Of course if you do the work yourself you will save much more, but these are not the simplest of tasks. It’s similar to golf: it’s harder than it looks.
Why Is Painting Kitchen Cabinets So Hard?
One issue is the quality of the finish should look like a piece of furniture, not a wall or a door.
The kitchen cabinets arrived at your house with a factory finish. Consequently, if you see brush marks or roller marks, it just won’t look the same.
The kitchen cabinets came from the factory with a clear coat of lacquer for protection. Any latex or oil primer will bond initially, but over time, can fail. The best choice is to use a shellac-based primer.
In short, there is more to having beautifully painted kitchen cabinets than just priming and using premium-grade paint.
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.
What Makes Painting Kitchen Cabinets in Fairfax Difficult?
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 penetrate the paint and reach the lacquer finish, the paint scratches off easily.
Secondly, to really achieve a true factory finish the cabinets should be sprayed. Then choose a premium grade cabinet grade paint like C2, Ben Moore Advance, or PPG Ultralast and add a latex conditioner.
With over 30 years of painting kitchen cabinets in Fairfax and beyond, we learned what works and what doesn’t. We are so sure of the durability of our painted kitchen cabinets that we offer a 5-year warranty.
FYI – If you do not own a sprayer and have never operated one this is not the best time to try.

Painting kitchen cabinets in Fairfax is a great way to transcend your kitchen for a fraction of the cost of replacing them.
I believe adding a backsplash plus painting your kitchen cabinets can have a dramatic effect. I’ve seen it so many times, and usually, the cost is under $5,000.
In addition, with over 30 years of experience painting kitchen cabinets, we offer two things that most companies can not say.
First, your newly painted kitchen cabinets’ quality has a smoothness similar to a factory finish.
Secondly, we offer a 5-year warranty when you have your kitchen cabinets or vanities painted. No other painting contractor offers such a generous warranty. Why do we?
The short answer is because our paint and procedures are done properly. For example, we use the right primers and topcoats.
