The kitchen singlehandedly makes the most significant difference in the look and feel of the home. That’s what makes our cabinet painting service such a valuable and popular choice. 

It may seem like a simple enough do-it-yourself project, but we’re here to warn you about some of the mishaps that can happen when your cabinet painting isn’t handled by a pro.

The good news is, the most common cabinet painting mistakes we see can be avoided by following a few best practices. Let’s take a deeper look. 

Quality Control For Cabinet Painting 

  • Choose a cohesive, neutral color. It’s definitely important to find a unique, custom shade that will give you a kitchen all your own. However, you may tire of a blood color quickly. An ultra-trendy color may turn off buyers in the future, too should you put your house on the market. 
  • Implement color and patterns in less permanent ways. Some ideas may be for cabinet hardware, dishes, rugs, wall color, accent decor, art, and more. These are much easier and much less expensive to swap out down the road. 
  • Work with—not against—the size of your kitchen. If your space is tight, choose a light cabinet shade to create a look of brightness and openness. If you have a large kitchen, don’t shy away from dark, rich colors. 
  • Plan adequately for how long your project will take and make accommodations for the time in which your kitchen will be out of commission. 
  • Prior to painting, take the time to thoroughly clean your cabinets from top to bottom. Removing grease, smudges, stains, oils, and other build-up on cabinets is essential to make sure the paint and finish go on smoothly and adhere like they should. 
  • Never skip the primer! This is an essential step in the process and helps ensure the best possible results as well as the longevity of your cabinet finish. 
  • When choosing your cabinet paint, be sure to go with an acrylic-polyurethane blend. A lot of do-it-yourselfers and even professionals cut corners by using latex paint which is intended for walls and not durable enough for cabinets. Make sure to avoid this—using the right type of paint is crucial.  
  • Avoid drips and brush strokes as you apply your new cabinet color.
