Refinishing kitchen cabinets
You may not get the expected look after repainting kitchen cabinets. You may need to refinish them instead. This is almost the same process as painting except that you have to first strip off all the paint. That will require establishing what type of paint is on your cabinets and buying the appropriate stripper.
We recommend getting gel or semi-paste strippers for vertical surfaces because they do not drip as much. Ensure that your floor, counter tops and appliances are all covered.
Re-staining will enable you to change the existing colour of your old kitchen cabinets while also giving it a fresh look. This process of refinishing kitchen cabinets involves a clear finish and eco-friendly inexpensive coating to be applied.
To re-stain your kitchen cabinets you will need to strip the old varnish using a removing chemical. Sand the wood down to its bare state and then apply the stain and two coats of varnish.
Re-Lacquer kitchen cabinets
Lacquer is a wood finish available in either a coloured or clear form. It dries either by the solvent’s evaporation or by a curing process. Both of which result in a hard, durable finish. The sheen level of the finish ranges from matte to high gloss and can be polished to the desired feel and look. It can be found in a variety of colours and is both eco-friendly and fairly inexpensive.
Your cabinets can be re-lacquered at any time, enabling you to change the colour of your kitchen cabinets easily. This allows you to keep up with the seasonal fashion changes of modern kitchen cabinets. The advantages of re-lacquering include ease of application, a number of colours to choose from, and a strong, distinctive look.
