Should I Paint or Refinish my Kitchen Cabinets?

February 19, 2020

Change the look of your kitchen cabinets without paying for replacement.

 

Here’s the problem: most cabinets today have laminate fronts, so sanding and painting those will likely end with less-than-ideal results. Technically, you could lightly sand and paint over a solid wood cabinet, but wood cabinets can still be susceptible to warping and peeling; plus putting the wrong type of paint on could still lead to poor results. If you’re serious about painting and have solid wood cabinets, I recommend consulting with a reputable interior painter to ensure you properly prepare the area and use the correct type of paint.

 

Cabinet refinishing or cabinet reglazing

 

You do have other – and I believe, better – options, though, to give your cabinets a new, updated look for significantly less than what it would cost to replace them. Because you’re interested in painting them, I recommend talking to a highly rated cabinet company that offers refinishing, or reglazing, work. Reglazing your cabinets can save you up to 80 percent of the cost of replacement, plus you can choose from a variety of colors, so you can customize its appearance to your taste. 

 

Reglazing, or refinishing, is similar to painting a car rather than a house. Cabinets are cleaned, sanded and taped off. The surface is primed and sprayed with an industrial topcoat, giving the cabinets a smooth surface and durable finish. The process typically takes less than a day and the cabinets can be used almost immediately after. The condition of your cabinets can play a role in whether or not it’s worth reglazing them, so talk to a professional to get his or her advice on your best option.
