Traditional cabinet painting may seem like the perfect solution for achieving a fresh, updated kitchen, but in the end, you’ll most likely be left with chipped and peeling paint. If not done correctly, cabinet painting can actually ruin your cabinets and make them look even worse than before. Fortunately, N-Hance of Hampton Roads offers one of the most affordable and fastest ways to revitalize the look of old, outdated cabinets in the Virginia Beach area.
Unlike traditional cabinet painting that results in chips and peeling, N-Hance of Hampton Roads uses paint specially formulated for cabinets. This makes it possible to completely cover the wood grain, leaving a sleeker finish and no darkness showing through. We offer hundreds of custom paint colors to choose from to fit your style and personality. The N-Hance cabinet painting service in Virginia Beach ends with our Lightspeed® curing process that cures the finish immediately and provides a durable and stain-resistant factory finish.
Stop waiting, contact us today about our industry-leading cabinet painting in the Virginia Beach area.
If you find yourself in this situation we can help! The easiest way for us to fix poorly painted cabinets is to replace the doors themselves. The process of stripping down the chipping paint and getting the factory-quality finish is more time consuming and costly than replacing the doors, which ends up giving you more options.
N-Hance Can Help!
N-Hance of Hampton Road’s Cabinet Door Replacement process leaves your existing cabinets in place. We only swap out the doors and drawer fronts. As a part of our cabinet door replacement service, our technician will use N-Hance’s special process to match the color of your existing cabinets with your custom doors for a flawless transition between old and new.
Unlike the streaked finish on these cabinets, N-Hance cabinet painting covers the wood grain of your cabinets, leaving you with a smooth, sleek factory-style finish.
With N-Hance, you won’t have to deal with chipped paint like on these cabinets. Our custom painted finish won’t chip or peel and is design to withstand years of wear and tear!

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.
LACK OF TECHNOLOGY
Painters often paint cabinets with a paintbrush, which can leave brush marks and an uneven finish.
Typically, no topcoat 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 topcoat is usually not applied, leaving your cabinets prone to future damage.
Paint can take days to dry.
