There are a few things to consider when having your cabinets painted. Each item listed below will factor into the overall cost of the job.
- The number of cabinet doors & drawers you have, and whether you’d like new hardware installed.
- Whether you have oak cabinets or not. Oak is notorious for absorbing grease and grime and takes quite a bit of extra prep work.
- Whether you have decorative panels added to the ends of your cabinets (these look like your doors but are added to the side panels instead).
- Whether you have intricate crown molding or light rails attached to your cabinets.
- If you would like the bases/face frames hand painted or sprayed.
Regardless of your answer to #5 above, we professionally paint all the doors and drawers in our spray booth.
For the bases, you have 2 options. We can hand brush all the cabinet bases. The self-leveling paint and skill of our painters makes this option very attractive because it’s almost as good as being sprayed, and you get to keep using your kitchen during the process. For many cabinets, where the doors cover 98% of the face frames anyway, it makes sense.
The other option is to bring in our on-site spray team. This is a more intrusive process. We will need to take over your kitchen for 3 or 4 days. You’ll need to empty out everything from your cabinets and you’ll lose access to most kitchen usage. We’ll put up plastic sheeting walls around the area, and cardboard in the cabinet openings.
Don’t worry about removing or reinstalling the cabinet hardware, we take care of that for you. It’s included in the price!
Cabinet painting is a cost-effective alternative to installing new cabinets. According to HGTV’s website if you’re planning on buying new cabinetry, stock cabinets are cheapest (the kind you find on the shelves at Home Depot or Lowes), at around $60 to $200 per linear foot, semi-custom cabinets will run you around $100 to $650 per linear foot, and custom cabinets usually cost between $500 and $1,200 per linear foot.
With an average-sized kitchen, we’re in and out in a week and you’re left with what will seem like brand new cabinets.
