Looking to spruce things up without busting the bank?  Painting is one of the cheapest and fastest ways to have a big splash on a tight budget.  Painting kitchen cabinets in Westminster is no different.  But, unfortunately, painting kitchen cabinets in Westminster or anywhere else comes with some hurdles and difficulties. 

In truth, most primers will not bond properly to painting kitchen cabinets.  In addition, most paints will not self-level to create that smooth finish similar to a factory finish. 

When the wrong paints and applications have been applied, the results can be like a punch in the gut.  As a result, the cabinets look more destroyed than improved.  Furthermore, you are reminded of this mess every time you walk into the kitchen.  

This isn’t a scare tactic to get you to hire us to paint your kitchen cabinets in Westminster.  I’ve seen it many times; if you are not going to paint kitchen cabinets properly, it best not to paint them at all.

Why Is Painting Kitchen Cabinets Difficult?

There are two main reasons.

First, because it is highly probable that cabinets, with the original finish, are a lacquer finish — most primers bond to lacquer for a while.  But over time, the oil from our hands soak into the layers of paint and break the adhesion between the primer coat and lacquer finish.  The result is that the paint easily scratches off.

Secondly, to get the kitchen cabinets to a factory finish, it is best to spray.   

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. 

When Best Practices Are Not Followed on Painting Kitchen Cabinets

The solution to fix these cabinets is to sand and strip or replace them.

Painting kitchen cabinets in Westminster 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 $5,000.00.  

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 experience and product knowledge.  For example, we use the proper primers and topcoats.
