Have you been thinking about professional kitchen cabinet painting and curious as to what the process is like?

So, let’s dig into the painting kitchen cabinets process!

Step #1: Take all kitchen cabinet doors & drawer faces off (and out!)

This first step of the kitchen cabinet painting process is all about our interior painting services coming in and uninstalling all of the kitchen cabinet doors and drawer faces. Within just a couple hours time, the house painters will have them all removed. Then the professional painters will move off-site to our own in-house facility. From there they will prepare for painting kitchen cabinets which are factory grade quality!

Step #2: Any on-site cupboard painting 

If there is any on-site painting to do, all of the kitchen cabinet painting will get done in usually no more than two days. And the whole refinishing kitchen cabinets process inside your home is very COVID safe as the interior house painters are just designated in that single room. Moreover, they have proper PPE and safety protocols in place!

Step #3: Cleaning Kitchen Cabinets

Kitchen cabinets see a lot of grease, oil and dirt over the years. Before our experienced home painters begin the kitchen cabinet painting, they will properly remove all of that kitchen grease and dirt from the kitchen cupboards. This step prior to painting kitchen cabinets will ensure a clean surface for your new kitchen cabinet painting!

Step #4: Sanding and Priming 

At this point of the cabinet refinishing process, it’s important to properly sand and buff your cupboards prior to priming them. To ensure factory grade quality of spray painting kitchen cabinets, it’s vital to have the smoothest finish possible. The professional painters will finish up with their sanding. They will go in with a specialty bonding primer made for kitchen cabinets.

Step #5: Prepping and Caulking All Kitchen Cabinet Doors 

Part of your kitchen cabinet painting makeover is having the professional painters ensure that every single kitchen cabinet door and drawer face is pristine looking! This is exactly when all of the fixing of any nail holes, damages to the kitchen cupboards and cracking and peeling is fixed. Then there is some more sanding to the kitchen cabinets. After that, it’s time for caulking any cracks and giving a little time for the caulking to properly dry as well.

Step #6: Kitchen Cabinet Spray Painting & Sanding Between Each Coat 

For cabinet refinishing, especially spray painting kitchen cupboards, it’s important to our professional painters to sand after each coat of specialty interior paint has been applied. Sometimes it can take three coats of kitchen cabinet painting to look the best. They also want to properly cover the previous paint or stain colour. So, there will be anywhere from 2 – 3 coats of specialty interior paint applied for a factory grade premium look for your kitchen cabinets.

Step #7: Kitchen Cabinet Door & Drawer Face Installation

Your kitchen cabinet painting is complete! At this step everything is looking great, so your cupboard doors and drawer faces will come back to your home for installation. At this step as well, the professional painters will ensure that all of the kitchen cabinet doors and drawers close properly and fix any last minute problems. They can also install brand new hardware as well (there may be additional charges).
