Refinishing Kitchen Cabinets

Refinishing kitchen cabinets. Replacing a kitchen cabinet is the most costly affair in kitchen remodelling. Spending thousands of dollars on a new kitchen cabinet at times become a tough call to include in our daily budget. Hence most often we renounce those cravings and keep walking with the old, outdated kitchen cabinets years after years. 

Refinishing Kitchen Cabinets

I have already discussed few ways on how to give your kitchen a new look by spending few hundreds. This article's topic is refinishing kitchen cabinets; this is another project that can serve you the purpose of being affordable and professional with your new kitchen décor.

The most significant area that we generally find on an out-dated kitchen cabinet is the finish. Due to course of time and regular usage, the painted finish becomes dry and dreary. For an easy solution you can unscrew the cabinet doors and start the cleaning process starting from the inner drawers, racks etc. Once done you initialise the sanding.

You will be requiring an electric sander to sand off all the paint from the body and then can apply some nice shine paints, lacquer to determine a new look to it. You can also for the glazing kitchen cabinets or the stained ones if needed.

It is also important to evaluate the current condition of your kitchen cabinet! It needs to be in sound health and have the ability to standby for couple of years more.  Further you need to check the joining of the cabinet, the corner joints needs to be tight and if not then pay more attention to it and repair the same first before harnessing yourself for the other activities. You can also check the areas under the sink.

Finally check all the doors and drawers whether they are working properly or not, if needed drop some oil to make it move with an ease. Yes, now you are finished with the investigation process; this stage of a kitchen cabinet is often termed as “unfinished kitchen cabinets”.

Process of Refinishing Kitchen Cabinets

How to refinish kitchen cabinets? Your first step would be to visit your local kitchen design store or a home improvement centre and pick a nice finish that you want to incorporate. For best results, head to your local paint shop and ask for the material. I always recommend a paint shop as I feel most of the paint shops has employees with sound understanding of their work and can serve you with the right piece of materials you will be requiring for the process.

Yes, here you need to spend some money to dig up the best stain, polish and lacquer for the job. Always remember you are saving 10 to 12 thousand dollars by holding your old cabinet; hence spend something for the sake of quality!

Time is another most important part apart from buying stain, paint, lacquer and other applicators. As you are commencing a DIY project, in general it will incur some additional time for being a non-professional. So take your time as you have already done a lot by evaluating the cabinet condition before starting the job. Go through each of the steps thoroughly and be completely satisfied with the work done so far.

Refinishing kitchen cabinets can surely save hundreds of dollars and take lesser work time on the remodelling process, just prepare a proper plan of action before you initialise the process, I guarantee success.
