How to Repaint Kitchen Cabinets and Doors


Is it time to remodel your kitchen? If so, you might want to first focus on the cabinets. Kitchen cabinets often endure more wear and tear than any other part of the house. If you have children constantly running in and out of the kitchen, grabbing food, and slamming doors with sticky fingers, your kitchen cabinets will show their age. Luckily, you don't need to install completely new cabinets to make your kitchen look different. In fact, you can easily remove the doors and repaint them, along with the cabinet boxes, to make your kitchen look more modern. This article explains how to remove your cabinet doors and repaint them.

Removing the Doors and Drawers

Removing the doors and drawers is very simple. You just need a power drill so you can remove the screws. You should also remove the hinges and any handles or hardware from the doors before you paint them.

Painting with a Spray Gun

If you want to repaint hardwood doors, it is much easier to use a pneumatic spray gun. Using rollers will leave behind a sloppy finish. To streamline the painting process, you should set up a simple painting station on the ground outside. You can lay down some paper, cloth, or even a bed sheet. Line all of your doors in a row so you can paint them at once. If you set your doors up like this and fully mask off the area around them, you will be able to spray them very quickly. You can paint multiple doors at once without even removing your finger from the trigger if they are all lined up.

Painting the Cabinet Boxes

You will also want to use the spray gun to paint the cabinets still attached to the walls in the kitchen. However, before you do this, you need to do extensive masking off. In the end, this will probably take up most of your time. However, if you thoroughly cover the floor, countertops, ceiling, and walls, you will be able to spray the cabinets very quickly and easily. Since most cabinet boxes are basically squares, they should be very easy to paint.

When all the paint dries, you can reattach your doors. For a more dramatic makeover, you should change the hinges and hardware on your drawers. Altogether, the new paint, along with the new hardware, can drastically alter the style of your entire kitchen. For further help, call a painting service.

Talking About Wallpaper

Hello, my name is Patty. I would like to share information about wallpaper on this website. Although wallpaper has mostly gone out of style in recent decades, it will eventually enjoy a revival as people rediscover its beauty and functionality. Wallpaper protects the drywall from moisture while coating the room in an attractive design. The paper is fairly straightforward to install and remove, making it an easy way to update the look of the home on the fly. I will explore every facet of wallpaper on my website. Please feel free to stop by often to discuss the history and future of wallpaper.
