There’s a lot of things you can paint in your house; your typical interior full-house painting will include the walls, the trim, and maybe even the ceiling. You can create accent walls, you can do multichromatic schemes; the possibilities are almost endless. Sometimes, though, you want to make a splash without redoing the whole house; you want to add some interest to a room while maintaining the overall colour scheme. In your kitchen, a perfect candidate for that kind of job is your cabinets; they can create a wonderful accent that brings out the colours of the room and draws people’s eyes. There’s a lot of work that goes into a good cabinet painting; we’re going to tell you how we do it.
The first thing we do anytime we paint is always the same: assess what kind of prepwork needs to be done. Kitchen cabinets suffer the brunt of spilled sauces and grease spittle, so they’ll need to be cleaned. To do a thorough cleaning, we’ll need to remove the cabinet doors from their hinges, so we can clean off both sides. Not only does this help us clean off the doors, it also lets us to a more precise paint job; you don’t want the interior of your cabinet door looking markedly different from the exterior. We’ll also prep all the surfaces in your kitchen so that paint splatter won’t hit anything else; painting is all about the prepwork!
Once that’s all done, we can get down to painting. Most cabinet doors are wooden, so they’ll need a good sanding before we can actually paint them, then it’s a matter of what kind of paint you want. A lot of folks want to let the grain of their wood shine through; in these cases, a good wood stain will impart beautiful colour onto the wood while still maintaining it’s natural look. Wood stains are pretty interesting, because they come in a variety of colours; most folks opt for colours you might actually see in wood, like pine or redwood, but you can get really funky with wood stains and opt for blues, purples, and all other manner of colour!
You can also opt to use a solid colour paint if you don’t want the texture of the wood to show; that opens up a wide array of possibilities you might not find in wood staining. We’ll evaluate the type of paint or stain you had on the cabinets prior to the repaint, and propose what the best solution for a new paint job might be. No matter which way you go, in the end, you’ll love your new cabinets.
