Repainting Kitchen Cabinets

Repainting kitchen cabinets is a cost effective option of giving your old cabinets a new life. In every five to eight years you face the challenge of doing something about your old and shabby looking kitchen cabinets. With the rebuilding costs being too high you are at an impasse.

Repainting Kitchen Cabinets

If you have new but unfinished cabinets you can paint them to get the desired finish and style. Painting kitchen cabinets can give them a fresh and new look.

You painting plans should be finalised based on the type of wood and finish that you want to impart. Instead of painting your cabinets you may also get the desired results by staining kitchen cabinets.

You will be spending the next five to ten years with your choice. Remember to choose a colour that is appealing and at the same time suits your style.

Faux painting for kitchen cabinets is a decorative painting procedure that can actually make your kitchen cabinets more pleasing to the eye. You will find many faux painting methods that are simple for even you to create reading the instructions. The ease of changing the paint has been a major reason for its popularity.

The process of repainting kitchen cabinets or staining them involves nearly the same steps. If you decide to paint you just need to perform the extra step of applying primer to the wood before actually painting them.

Start by taking the kitchen cabinet apart. Remove each piece that can be removed including doors, drawers, handles and hinges. If you are working on new unfinished furniture lightly dust the parts. In case you are working on old kitchen cabinets clean all the parts.

Start by sanding your old kitchen cabinets to make the surface as smooth as possible. With new cabinets you can skip this step with the assumption that these comes already sanded. If you do see scratches or dents on the surface, do lightly sand them.

If you have decided to paint the cabinets, you now need to apply primer on them. Use oil based or water based on latex based primers. The primer depends on the kitchen cabinets paint that you have decided to apply. If you are to use oil based paints use oil based primer.

Let the primer dry and if possible lightly sand the surfaces again before starting the painting process. Wear protective gloves and cover the surface on which you are going to work with cover.

Use thinners to reduce the density of the paints and paint thin coats on all the cabinets. Remember for professional looks you need to apply thin coats of paint instead of thicker ones. Use good quality brushes to paint your kitchen cabinets.

If you instead decide to stain your cabinets, start by mixing the stain with a stick. Dip a rag in the stain and start by rubbing the rag on the surfaces. You can apply the stain against the wood or with the wood grain. Do not forget to stain all the edges and grooves and surfaces.

Once the paint or stain dries off, you may need to apply another coat of paint or stain to get the desired effect. Apply the paint and then let it dry. Join the pieces and your kitchen cabinet is ready with a fresh look. Repainting kitchen cabinets not only added a fresh look but also was light on your pocket.
