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 do not paint kitchen cabinets properly, it is best not to paint them at all.

Why Is Painting Kitchen Cabinets Difficult?

Two 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 soaks into the layers of paint and breaks 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.   

For your information, buying a DIY sprayer will not give you the same results.  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 & Vanities

Painting kitchen cabinets in Westminster is a great way to transcend your kitchen for a fraction of the cost of replacing them.  

Transforming your kitchen with a backsplash and a fresh coat of paint on your cabinets can have a stunning effect.  Best of all, this transformation usually costs under $5,000.00, making it a cost-effective way to upgrade your home.  

In addition, with over 30 years of experience painting kitchen cabinets, we offer two things that most companies can not say.

First, the quality of your newly painted kitchen cabinets is smooth, similar to that of a factory finish.

Secondly, we offer a 5-year warranty when your kitchen cabinets or vanities are painted. This is a testament to our confidence in the quality of our work.  No other painting contractor offers such a generous warranty.  Why do we?
