Kitchen cabinets are the dominant item in any kitchen.  Painting your kitchen cabinets in NVA can dramatically change the look of your kitchen without busting the bank. 

Plus, we are talking about a significant transformation if we upgrade the hardware and install a new backsplash!  And while most kitchen remodels come with a $40,000 price tag, we can make these impactful changes for around a $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 do the work yourself.  However, painting kitchen cabinets is kind of like hitting a golf ball.  It’s not as easy as it looks. for a fraction of the cost of replacing. 

Mastering the Process Of Painting Kitchen Cabinets

First, if the primer and top coats are not bonding properly, the paint will scratch off in a few short months.

Secondly, many premium-grade paints do not self-level like cabinet paint.  You must follow certain steps if you want a factory finish on your kitchen cabinet.  

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.

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 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.

With over 30 years of experience painting kitchen cabinets, we offer two things that most companies cannot 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 experience and product knowledge.  For example, we use the proper primers and topcoats.
