Most common questions:

Will painting my kitchen cabinets increase the value of my home? 

Absolutely, painting your kitchen cabinets not only increases the value of your home but is often a cost effective solution to full kitchen renovation. Painting your cabinets eliminates numerous unknowns from the remodeling process and when compared to the cost of new cabinets and installation, painting instead of replacing will save you lots of money! With today's selection of cabinet hardware, endless color options and counter materials, its no wonder cabinet painting has become so popular. In addition to saving money, painting also saves time in planning a new kitchen install not to mention the inconvenience and disruption a remodel causes.

What is the investment to get my kitchen cabinets painted?

In our experience, an average kitchen is $5,600 and $6,200. Of course larger kitchens fall above that average.

According to HomeAdvisor, the national average for remodeling a kitchen is $25,300 with a range of $13,276- $37,546.

So it is clear that re-painting is less expensive, cleaner, and faster to replacing and we have the system to give you a brand new space at 20% the cost of a new one

What paint do you use?

We use RENNER 2K Wood Coatings and ML. CAMPBELL Pre- Catalyzed System. Neither of these products can be found at your local hardware store as a run of the mill trim paint. They are made specifically for cabinets and furniture. it is a no-brainier if you plan on being in your home for an extended period of time. These products are also low VOC which means they are healthier for you and the environment, combined with our industrial filtered air extraction units we bring onsite to remove dust in the air, your project will have less odor and dust than a standard interior painting project.This finish will resemble a factory applied finish and is likely what is on your cabinets. It is available in an unlimited color palette so you can find just the right color to fit your style. It is durable, cures fast and wears well. Your kitchen can be returned to normal use within 4 hours of application.

 

 

What process do you follow?

First we determine how large is your kitchen cabinet painting project. How many pieces are there? A simple way to determine "pieces" is to count drawers and doors. We remove every piece possible to bring back to our cabinet finishing shop in Milford, CT (typically doors and drawers) to paint in our spray booth. All of the mechanical components including hinges and drawer slides are carefully removed, inspected and labeled during disassembly. This eliminates time we are actually onsite and helps keep your home clean. Most "painters" take over your garage, and use simple box fans sending unfiltered air and over spray into your yard through a window or even worse, no fan at all leaving you to deal with the smell. This is especially important when children are present. Each piece would average between $100-$150 depending on condition and wood type. This cost is an approximation and includes the boxes from which they were removed. Heavily grained wood species like oak require more work to "fill" the grain and give a "factory like" appearance.

Labor makes up the majority of a cabinet painting project. The time required to transform a kitchen can range from 50- 180+ hours. Why is this important? You can not cut corners in the cabinet painting process and deliver the quality in appearance and durability. We are not willing to cut corners to reduce the cost and we work best with clients that agree. We know what it takes to give you what you expect and we never deliver anything less. 

In addition to the time required to perform our painting and re-finishing process, we also know it takes unparalleled skill. People that are experts in the application of high end fine finishes. And when they get through with your cabinets, you will know you have partnered with highly skilled craftsmen and women that are passionate about what they are doing. No brush and roller here. We spray all of our cabinet finishes and that is how you get that factory look that isn't achievable with a brush and roller. 

We recruit top talent, which shows in the results!
