N-Hance Cabinet Refinishing VS. Cabinet Painting

N-Hance Cabinet Refinishing


  • Proprietary, state-of-the-art products designed to work on cabinets.
  • Cleaning solution developed to remove oil surface contaminants such as oils, grease, waxes, and dirt.
  • Proprietary sealer designed to neutralize acidic conditions that can cause discoloring over time.
  • Cabinet primer is used to block tannins, stains and prevent any bleed through.
  • Custom color is made of an acrylic polyurethane blend resulting in strong adhesion that resists chips or peeling.


  • Using advanced technology, N-Hance developed a proprietary clear top coat, called Lightspeed®, that is applied and then cured with ultra-violet light.
  • Lightspeed® is designed to provide a factory-grade finish for maximum durability.
  • Ligtspeed® contains an anti-microbial property that reduces bacteria growth by 99% keeping your home healthier, for longer.


  • Clean the cabinets – a non-toxic, chemical cleaning process is followed to remove oils, grease, waxes, grime and old finishes.
  • Prep and seal – neutralizes the PH level of the wood, which is important to ensure proper adhesion and bonding.
  • Primer applied – designed for cabinets to block tannins, stains and prevent bleed through.
  • Custom color applied – several coats applied similarly to the process used with factory-finished colored cabinets for high durability.
  • Lightspeed® applied – the top coat is cured using UV light for an instant finish – no waiting!

Cabinet Painting


  • Products used by painters are typically not designed for cabinets.
  • Leaves a waxy build-up, which can cause problems with paint adhering to the wood.
  • Some painters use wall primer rather than cabinet primer, such as the primer used by N-Hance which is formulated specifically for cabinets.
  • The most common paint used by painters is a latex paint that is designed to be used on walls, not cabinets. These types of products don’t adhere well to cabinets and do not offer the same durability that N-Hance products provide.


  • Painters often paint cabinets with a paintbrush, which can leave brush marks and an uneven finish.
  • Typically, no top coat is applied and the paint on the cabinets is left vulnerable to scratches, smudges, chips, and peeling. This also leaves your cabinets looking like they’ve been painted, rather than the factory-like finish that N-Hance provides.
  • Cabinets are left to air-dry, which can be a real problem in high-humidity climates or rooms, such as bathrooms. This leaves your new paint finish susceptible to dust particles, smudges, dripping and fingerprints.


  • Process varies from painter to painter:
    • May clean the cabinets
    • Rarely seals the cabinets
    • If the primer is used it is likely wall primer, which doesn’t provide the same durability as N-Hance’s cabinet primer
  • A top coat is usually not applied, leaving your cabinets prone to future damage.
  • Paint can take days to dry.

Factory Quality Finish

To ensure that no mistakes are made, N-Hance of  Southeast Michigan follows a specific process:

– Clean the Cabinets. Before we do anything, we use a proprietary cleaning process to clean your cabinets and remove oils, grease, grime, waxes and other particles that may have accumulated, as well as loose layers of old finish. This gives us a fresh canvas to work with.
– Prep and Seal. At this point, we prepare and seal the cabinet, neutralizing the wood’s pH levels. This step is important to make sure that the primer and color bond to the wood properly.
– Apply Primer. Our primer blocks tanning and stains on the wood from bleeding through and marring the surface after the process is complete.
– Apply Custom Color. We only provide the best. That’s why we use our own acrylic polyurethane blend, as opposed to basic latex paint. We apply several coats to your cabinet to make the finish durable against bumps, scratches, and other physical wear. This process is similar to the process used in factories when manufacturing new cabinets.
– Apply Lightspeed®. N-Hance uses a proprietary top coat that is cured using ultraviolet light. This finish dries quickly, meaning you don’t have to wait to use your cabinets again! Lightspeed® also contains an antimicrobial property that decreases bacteria growth by 99%, keeping your home and family healthy.

“Anna and Bob of N-Hance of Southeast Michigan did a great job on all of our kitchen cabinets. They were here about 5 years ago and the cabinets look just as good as when they did the job! They did a clean, efficient job. I think it was only 2-3 days and they were done with 21 doors and 15 drawers. No smell at all. They did a great job. We don’t hesitate to recommend their company.”

Nathaniel C., ★★★★★

“Bob and Anna were terrific to work with. They refinished our outdated cabinets to pristine white. They also repainted our buffet and tower. We have had many compliments on the cabinets. N-Hance of Southeast Michigan did quality work and were very responsive to our needs and did it promptly and professionally. I would highly recommend them to anyone interested in updating their kitchen and baths.”
