Kitchen Cabinet Painting: The Basics

Arguably one of the worst trends still impacting interested homebuyers today is an outdated kitchen with fading oak cabinets. The good news is, there’s a quick fix. 


Painted kitchen cabinets have steadily become more and more popular over the past few years for this exact reason. Painting allows you to refresh your space without hemorrhaging cash to do it, because a coat of paint is much less expensive than replacing your cabinets all together – in fact, it’s sometimes as much as five to ten times less costly. 


Aside from money, there’s the shorter timeline. 


Painting kitchen cabinets generally takes about one week – a walk in the park compared to months of navigating tarp, wet paint, and scattered supplies when you choose to go the remodel route. 


To put it simply, this is not only the best bang for your buck, but the quickest solution to your problem. In other words, it’s a win/win. 


While we love giving would-be DIYers tips on this blog, we want to stress that this is not a project you should tackle on your own. It might seem deceptively simple, but painting cabinets actually requires a lot of technical skill. 

If you think your kitchen might be in need of a modern makeover, we can’t recommend a fresh coat of paint enough – just make sure you leave the project in the hands of someone you can trust.
