Do your kitchen cabinets appear outdated or scratched? Have you attempted a DIY paint job that left you dissatisfied with the results? No matter the situation, N-Hance® is here to assist you in repainting your kitchen cabinets. We can rejuvenate lackluster, worn-out, or out-of-style cabinets, providing them with a revitalized and stylish appearance you’ll adore. Additionally, we can correct errors often made during DIY painting, such as brush strokes, drip marks, and other imperfections.
Some common issues that homeowners seek our help with include:
Problem #1: Leaving the Doors On
Perhaps you believed that cabinet painting with the doors still in place would be more convenient. However, this approach often leads to a messy and less-than-perfect end result. Working around the hinges can be challenging and may result in a less-than-desirable outcome with drip marks and other imperfections.
At N-Hance, you can leave these concerns behind. We’ll take care of everything by removing the drawer fronts and cabinet doors and bringing them to our shop, where we guarantee a smooth, factory-like finish. This eliminates the potential for hasty errors and ensures you receive a professional outcome without any hassle.
Problem #2: Not Taking Time to Adequately Prep
Effective preparation is a critical aspect of repainting kitchen cabinets, and it can be challenging to achieve this level of precision without professional experience. Incorrect preparation can negatively impact the cabinets’ final appearance and durability, making them susceptible to chipping and peeling shortly after painting. Additionally, any scratches and damages may become more noticeable once the cabinets are repainted.
At N-Hance, we prioritize thorough and accurate preparation. We begin by cleaning your cabinets with a specialized solution engineered to eliminate grease, grime, and build-up, ensuring a clean surface for the new finish. We also address any damaged areas and apply a cabinet-specific primer, enhancing paint adhesion and preventing issues such as stains and bleedthrough.
Problem #3: Applying a Thick Layer of Paint
While it may seem tempting to expedite the process by applying a single, thick coat of paint to your cabinets, this approach can actually render your cabinets more susceptible to scratches, peeling, chipping, and various imperfections. The ideal method involves applying multiple thin layers of paint to create a robust surface capable of withstanding daily wear and tear.
At N-Hance, we exclusively employ paint designed for cabinets, tailored to endure heavy-duty use and regular cleaning without compromising its appearance. Upon selecting your preferred color, our skilled craftsmen will expertly apply the paint to your cabinets, ensuring an even coat and delivering a flawless, enduring finish.
Problem #4: Not Letting Cabinets Dry Long Enough
Undertaking a DIY kitchen cabinet painting project can consume a significant amount of time, necessitating waiting periods between each paint coat and before you can reinstall cabinet components. The final curing process may extend for several weeks to achieve optimal results. Hastening any of these steps increases the risk of damaging your cabinets, leading to smudges, chips, and other signs of wear.
At N-Hance, we employ a proprietary system known as Lightspeed® Nano that enables the instant curing of your cabinets using UV light. Upon completing the repainting process, we apply a clear topcoat and swiftly cure it within seconds. This abbreviated downtime results in a more robust and longer-lasting finish.
Problem #5: The Wrong Color
N-Hance offers a solution if you’re dissatisfied with your current cabinet color or if it’s gone out of style. We provide a choice of 12 popular and well-tested colors for you to select from. If you have a different color preference, you can supply a color sample, and we’ll match it to your satisfaction.
It’s essential to note that repainting your kitchen cabinets won’t resolve structural issues. For instance, if your cabinets are warping, repainting won’t reverse this condition. While it might temporarily conceal the problem, the ultimate solution in these exceptional cases is saving for a complete cabinet replacement, ensuring you obtain cabinets that are both aesthetically pleasing and long-lasting for years to come.
If you handled repainting your kitchen cabinets on your own and don’t like the end results, let N-Hance of Northern Hartford County create the factory-like finish you desire. We’ll give you beautiful cabinets, quickly, at a cost you can afford. Set up a FREE consultation.
