Benefits of painting cabinetsAccording to painting and cabinetry contractors, painting cabinets offers several advantages over staining. “If your cabinets are dinged and scratched to the point of needing filler repair, then painting would be your option rather than refinishing,” says Andrew Walter, owner of Sound Finish in Arlington, Washington. “Painting would be needed to hide the filler. Dings and scratches are not a problem to fix when painting cabinets. When refinishing, fillers are not used.” Kinser says another benefit includes appearance if you’re trying to refinish cabinets. “If you have stained cabinets and you try to restain the cabinets, you can never go lighter. They always have to go darker. And then they will always be blotchy.” He adds that when stained, the stain soaks into the wood cabinet’s pores. When you restain wood, you need to sand it down, but you can never sand it down to completely remove the stain because it would cost so much in labor that you’d be better off purchasing new cabinets, Kinser says. Therefore, blotchiness occurs because new stain fills in heavier in some pores but not as much in others.

Step Twelve // Pro Secrets for Painting Kitchen Cabinets Hang Cabinets to Dry Between Coats Photo by Brian Wilder Painting cabinet doors is a trade-off between perfection and speed. John Dee, a perfectionist, prefers to do one side at a time, keeping the faces flat so they don’t get runs. But that’s 48 hours of drying time per door—one day per side. Here’s his method for painting both sides in a day. Twist two screw hooks into holes drilled in an inconspicuous door edge (the lower edge for bottom cabinets, the upper edge for top cabinets). Paint the door’s outside face as above. Let it dry for an hour while resting flat, then tilt the door up onto its hooks and put a drywall screw into an existing hardware hole. Hold the tilted door up by the screw and paint the door’s back side. When you’re done painting, pick up the door by the screw and one hook and hang both hooks on a sturdy wire clothes hanger. Suspend from a shower curtain rod or clothes rod until the door is dry.

Don’t Desert Your Island If you love your kitchen cabinets, but want to add some interest to the space for very little money and time, consider changing the color of your island. This has been a popular design element for years and is showing no signs of changing anytime soon. Paint it, stain it a darker color or clad it in beadboard. You could even put corbels under the breakfast bar for added dimension and inexpensive customization. Are You Both Worn Out? These kitchen cabinets are hopefully in worse shape than yours, but they’re not that uncommon. If you like the style of your existing cabinets, they’re still functioning well or new ones aren’t in the budget right now, paint is your friend here. Choose a color that complements the other elements in the room and get ready to go from “ow” to “wow!” Check out the next picture to see just how amazing this low-cost solution can look. Acquaint Yourself With Paint A fresh kitchen is just a few days’ elbow grease away. Prep work and light, even coats are the keys to a successful paint job. Take the time to sand the surfaces until smooth, caulk as needed and try using pieces of a brown paper bag to “sand” between coats. It smooths and knocks down the high spots without dulling/removing as much paint as sandpaper so you don’t have to be quite so careful. Ready For a Change This kitchen could be Anywhere, USA, and might remind you of yours. Let’s say you have a bigger budget and it’s time for some changes, but new cabinets aren’t one of them. Repurposing them by changing their color and focusing on other areas that’ll give you a big bang for your buck is a smart way to go. Look to the following picture for inspiration. More Bang For the Buck This kitchen’s renewed darker cabinets, new backsplash and stainless steel appliances all combine to make it into a welcoming space with minimal hassle and mess. Keeping the same layout, cabinets and flooring made it possible to put the dollars into the higher-end appliances people expect these days and to add texture with the tile backsplash — all ideas you can consider if your kitchen’s not to your taste. Not-So-Bright White This kitchen’s beige/whitewashed cabinet color makes the white countertops and walls look dull. That isn’t what anyone wants in a space that should be clean and fresh for cooking and eating. If you’re ready for a change and crave color, check out the next picture to see how adding a new hue to just the cabinets transformed this kitchen. For Those Who Crave Color New molding along the top of the stock cabinets and N-HANCE® wood renewal in blue make the entire kitchen look unique, bright and white, even though the countertops and walls didn’t change. When you’re ready to update your kitchen cabinets, consider all your color options and don’t be afraid to make a bold statement.
