Why is everyone painting their cabinets?

This trend so famously found throughout Pinterest searches and HGTV remodels is on point.  If you’ve noticed the cost of new appliances, countertops, and cabinets, it’s no surprise that renovating a kitchen is one of the most expensive remodeling projects; especially when cabinets can account for nearly forty percent of the cost of a kitchen.  Why not take advantage of a simple fix to absolutely transform your kitchen space without breaking your budget?

  • Prep (Clean, Sand, Prime)

Cabinets are made out of a variety of materials -from wood to metal- that are covered with a range of finishes, from oil-based paint to plastics.  But stocked with the right primer and quality paint, this project can overhaul a kitchen without emptying your pockets.

Here at Davis Painting, we perform two coats of primer, two coats of finish, sanding for the proper adhesion, and offers grain filling as well.

  • Paint

Thinking about painting your cabinets in your sacred kitchen? Consider these questions:

  1. Do you like the cabinet door detail?
  2. Do you like the layout of the cabinets themselves?

If you answered no to any of these questions, do not paint your cabinets.  Your best bet is to replace or reface them. If you like the basics of your cabinets, and are looking for an upgrade and a way to transform your kitchen, then painting is the yellow brick road to your renewed kitchen!

This cosmetic project revives cabinets that have become scratched, faded, or discolored, and breathes new life into an old kitchen.

Want a more modern look? The trend in kitchens these days is for a softer matte look. As well as specialty paints, such as chalkboard paint, which can be a fun option to convert a cabinet or pantry door into a message center for your family’s communication needs.

Want an antique look? Choose milk paint. Non-toxic, water based, and child safe.

Whatever paint finish you choose, you’ll want to buy a high-quality product and go with a high-quality company.  Considering painting your kitchen cabinets? Contact estimates@davispaintingllc.com or give us a call at 484-791-3466 to set up your consultation to the kitchen of your dreams!
