Faded. Worn. Blasé. Outdated. Blah. If you find yourself thinking any of these words (or others like them) when you look at your cabinets, then it’s time for a change! Refreshing and updating your kitchen or bathroom cabinets doesn’t have to cost $10,000 or more: instead of replacing them, give them new life with paint!
When kitchen cabinets receive professional painting by an experienced contractor, they can have a brand new look, at a fraction of the cost of replacing them. Here are a few thoughts about repainting kitchen cabinets.
Painted Cabinets Are All the Rage
Kitchen styles come and go. Stained-wood cabinets had a long time in the spotlight, but painted cabinets are far more popular now. The most common color to go with is white, since it is clean, bright, minimalistic, and matches with everything. Also, appliances are no longer white, and countertops are mostly solid surfaces, so white cabinets set everything off nicely.
There are also other lovely options to consider, such as gray, blue, sage, sand, and even black. Take some time to browse photos and see what grips your imagination!
New Hardware Completes the Transformation
While you are getting those drawer faces and cabinet doors painted, it makes sense to update your hinges, knobs, and pulls at the same time. Brushed nickel is very classy, as well as antique black, polished brass, and more. Choose your cabinet color first, then look for the perfect hardware to complete the new look!
It Takes a Professional Touch
An experienced, dedicated do-it-yourselfer with the right equipment (and a lot of time to spare) can take on a cabinet painting project with a good chance at decent results. The truth, however, is that most of those who would pick up a brush and roller for other rooms in their houses are not quite ready for painting cabinets. There are several reasons why it is best to leave this project to a professional:
- The drawers and doors can be taken off-site to a room where airflow is controlled to achieve the best results.
- A professional knows the right products and techniques to achieve premium, long-lasting results.
- Spray-painting equipment produces the best results when painting bathroom or kitchen cabinets. Most homeowners don’t have access to this quality equipment.
- A painting contractor can get the job done much faster, with no headaches for you as the homeowner, and less time when you can’t use your kitchen.
Remember that painting your kitchen cabinets is an investment in your quality of life and in the value of your home. By hiring a painting company rather than buying new cabinets, you are saving a great deal of money. Maximize the investment by hiring a qualified painting contractor.
