Many Connecticut homeowners dream about getting a brand new kitchen, unaware that it is actually within their grasp! While a complete renovation might be cost prohibitive, painting your kitchen cabinets can provide a similar transformation at a fraction of the cost! With a few extra touches, your kitchen will look like a whole new place, without breaking the bank.
Cabinet Painting Process
In order to make old cabinets look new, the first step is to remove all the cabinet doors and drawer faces. The cabinet frames are painted in place, but the doors and drawer faces can be set up in a more controlled environment. This allows for better dust and fume management.
To achieve a durable, beautiful finish, the surfaces need to be thoroughly cleaned and de-glossed. This allows the new coatings to adhere properly, and ensures a smooth, professional finish.
The coatings used for cabinet painting can vary based on the factors of the individual job. That said, there will typically be a primer, two or more coats of premium paint or waterborne lacquer.
If your cabinets are an open grain wood such as oak you may also choose a filler application to eliminate the grain.
Other Finishing Touches
Beyond the color change to the cabinets themselves, what else can you do to enhance the transformation? There are many details you can consider:
- Replace cabinet hardware such as hinges, knobs and pulls
- Paint the walls and/or ceiling
- Refresh the baseboards and trim
- Install a new backsplash
- Update light fixtures
- Modernize electrical outlets
- Add an accent wall
