You want a kitchen with fresh-looking cabinets. At the same time, you want to get there spending the least amount of money possible. That’s why a DIY approach might seem attractive. However, before you go down that path, consider hiring the professional cabinet painters from N-Hance® instead.
Will it cost more? Yes, on the surface. But having a professional paint your cabinets can potentially save you money down the line.
Painting cabinets isn’t as simple as it sounds. It’s why so many homeowners decide to buck the DIY trend and hire cabinet painters like ours instead. One wrong move, such as choosing a product not made for cabinets, improperly prepping, or not using the right tools, can lead to disastrous results. You’ll spend time and money only to have to go back and redo the work.
Our professional cabinet painters, on the other hand, can make the job so much easier. Here’s how:
#1: Our Painters Know What Colors will Look Like Once on Your Cabinets
You might spot a color you fall in love with in a magazine or at the local home improvement store. However, it’s likely going to look different once it’s on your cabinets.
For instance, you may not realize it, but cabinet paint is typically applied in a satin sheen product or even a high gloss one. If the paint sample you’re looking at is matte instead, it’s going to look completely different once it’s on your cabinets.
This is simply because paint on your cabinets reflects light. This can significantly impact the way it ends up looking once applied. Professional painters, like the ones at N-Hance, know and understand this. They can point you in the direction of colors you love; ones that also come without surprises.
#2: They Know How to Properly Prep Cabinets
The prepping process is the most important aspect of cabinet painting and our professional painters know how to handle it. They use products that are more effective at removing the dirt, grime, and build-up that accumulates on your cabinets over the years.
In fact, we use proprietary, commercial-grade products not available through retailers to clean your cabinets. When your cabinets are well-cleaned, the primer will bond to them better.
In addition, our professional painters know how to repair those small scratches, scuffs, and dents that might be on your cabinet doors, drawers, or boxes. Before they move onto the painting portion, they’ll also carefully inspect each one again to ensure they didn’t miss any imperfections.
#3: They Know How to Prime for Flawless-Looking Results
There are many different priming products on the market today and it can be difficult to know which is best for your cabinets. Our painters, on the other hand, understand each and every one and will apply the one that’s ideal for your cabinets.
In fact, at N-Hance, we’ve created a specially formulated sealer and primers just for cabinets. Our sealer is designed to neutralize the acidic conditions that can often lead to discoloration. Our primers also block stains and tannins, as well as prevent bleed throughs.
#4: They Know How to Keep Your Space Clean in the Process
Once you’re knee deep into a DIY painting project, it can be difficult to keep things clean. You might get splatters on your floors, countertops or appliances, as a result.
You don’t have to worry about this happening with our professional cabinet painters. They know how to properly protect your space, masking or draping off areas and protecting the counters and floors. They’ll also tent off your kitchen to avoid any fumes from entering your home and contain any dust from sanding.
#5: They Know the Best Products to Use
Not all paints are created equal, particularly when it comes to cabinet painting. This is one of the biggest mistakes DIY-ers make when tackling this project on their own. They use paint that’s designed for walls or other applications, not cabinets.
The problem with this is your cabinets get a lot of use. They’re touched, splattered with grease, and opened and closed constantly. This makes it essential to use paint that can stand up to everyday wear and tear and still look great.
Our professional painters understand this and have access to specialty commercial products that cannot be purchased off the shelf. In fact, our custom color is made of an acrylic polyurethane blend especially designed for cabinets. It leads to strong adhesion, all while resisting chipping and peeling.
#6: They Know Which Equipment to Use
If you’re not a professional painter, it’s confusing to know which tools to use to perform the job properly: a brush, a roller or a sprayer? If you make the wrong decision, it can lead to brush or drip marks and a messy, disappointing outcome after all your hard work.
Our professional cabinet painters, however, have all the equipment in place to produce a high-end finish. Not only will they use sprayers that ensure a factory-like finish, but have all sorts of other tools to help during the process. This includes specialty tools, from dustless sanding machines to touch-sprayers, glazing guns and more.
#7: They Know How to Finish the Job, Faster
Thanks to all this knowledge and expertise – combined with commercial-grade products and equipment – our professional cabinet painters can perform the job better and faster. This will lead to results you love immediately and ones that are longer-lasting, too. It also means less down time for you in your kitchen, so you’re back up and running within a few short days.
