Before You Paint

Painting or refinishing your cabinetry can be a lot of work, but it can also save you a great deal of money while adding value to your home. Preparation is the key to successful cabinetry refreshment. Most cabinet stripping and painting renovations take a good deal of time and energy to achieve quality results, but it's worth it. Start by prepping the surface properly, and use the appropriate supplies and tools. Let cabinet stripping agents do the work for you and then give cabinets a good sanding.

Cabinet Paint Choices

Once you've properly stripped, sanded, and prepped your cabinets, you're finally ready for the fun part of the makeover. For most kitchens, oil-based paints and primers are generally your best choices. They cure with a hard, sleek finish that will last longer and clean more easily. Many of today's paints are even formulated to resist mold and mildew. And your color choices are practically limitless.

So if your kitchen cabinets are dingy or dated, a coat of new stain or a fresh, crisp coat of paint may give them the remodeled look you're after at a price you're sure to love.
