You Could Replace, Reface or REPAINT Your Kitchen Cabinets

Kitchen remodeling is always popular at Kitchen Gallery.

When it’s time to work on the kitchen cabinets, the traditional options available to North Bay homeowners are:

  • Cabinet refacing: This is where the cabinet boxes and drawers are kept intact, but their exteriors are refaced with a new veneer surface.
  • Custom cabinetry: Unique, one-of-a-kind kitchen cabinets which are measured, designed and built to your specifications.

However, a third option is becoming increasingly popular: Kitchen cabinet repainting.

How kitchen cabinet repainting works

Kitchen cabinet repainting combines the look and feel of a custom transformation with the convenience of cabinet refacing:

   1. Depending on what you want, your kitchen cabinetry (drawers, doors, etc.) are taken down and are painted in the home.

   2. A skilled and experienced painter will coat your cabinets in the colour (or colours if you so choose) you want.

   3. Once your cabinets are dried, they’re reinstalled in your kitchen design, just as they were.

Using our spray painting service (as opposed to a traditional painter or painting them yourself) delivers numerous benefits:

  • It’s much faster (it is possible for the spray painting process to be done in a few days)
  • Spray paint coverage is more thorough & even vs. using a brush or roller
  • No chance of runny paint, streaks, visible brushstrokes or other imperfections.

What about the cabinet boxes?

The base cabinet elements which can’t be removed from your kitchen (the boxes, crowns, kick plates, etc.) are spray painted (that’s right) directly in your kitchen.

Before that happens, a bunch of prep work needs to take place to ensure that your appliances, mosaic backsplash tiles, kitchen floor and countertops are protected from the painting process.

As for the cabinets themselves, they’re first inspected for any holes, cracks or stains. Any imperfections are repaired and/or cleaned before painting actually commences.

The painting process usually follows 6 steps:

  • STEP 1: Cleaning the cabinetry
  • STEP 2: Priming
  • STEP 3: First sanding
  • STEP 4: First coat of paint
  • STEP 5: Second sanding
  • STEP 6: Second (usually final) coat of paint

Once the painting process is complete, our team will clean your kitchen and put it back together for you.

It’s very affordable, too

Budgeting your renovation cost is a big part of any kitchen installation project.

While it’s impossible to know what the final tally will be, it is possible to save 60%-70% on kitchen cabinet repainting vs. cabinet refacing.

That includes accounting for items like:

  • Paint
  • Undercoats and/or topcoats
  • Prep work (i.e. sanding)
  • Materials
  • Labour
