Why Choose Cabinet Refinishing?

October 26, 2021 at 7:48 am | No comment | Category: Bathroom Cabinets, Blog, Cabinet Refinishing, Kitchen Cabinets

You’ve heard a lot about cabinet refinishing, but might not know exactly what it entails.  Maybe it sounds too good to be true – a great cabinet refinishing team comes to your home, finds out exactly what you want for your cabinets, applies quality stain to the cabinet boxes, and removes all doors and drawer fronts and takes them to their shop to work their magic and create the custom look you’ve been dreaming of!  It’s not too good to be true.  In fact, it’s exactly what the best cabinet refinishing companies in the area do.

Here are reasons to refinish the cabinets in your kitchen, bar, mudroom, and bathroom:

  • Save Money – Redoing or completely renovating your kitchen or bathroom costs an exorbitant amount of cash. Hiring a good painting company with an expert cabinet refinishing team to redo the cabinets will help to create an all-new look in your kitchen at a fraction of the cost.
  • Custom Work – Good cabinet refinishers are true artists. They’re trained to apply the best topcoats and then add detail work by hand, creating truly custom, one-of-a-kind cabinetry in your home.  You’ll never walk into your neighbor’s house and find the same cabinets there, because yours are completely unique, just for you and your home, and exactly what you’ve imagined.
  • “Start Over” – Even if you like your kitchen and aren’t looking to give it a facelift or different look, cabinet refinishing provides a great way to “start over.” Over time, cabinet drawers and doors take a real beating.  They get spattered with juice, cooking oil, and any number of other things, and they get dented, scratched, and covered in a thin (or not so thin) layer of grime.  The best cabinet refinishers can make these problems go away and can give your kitchen or mudroom cabinets a fresh start.  Cleaning, sanding, finishing, and applying a fresh coat of the paint or stain will freshen up your kitchen like you won’t believe!
  • Good Investment – Any improvement you make to your home increases its value, and custom cabinet refinishing is no different. Furthermore, you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, whether preparing meals for your family, hosting friends, or just naturally congregating in the heart of the home.  Make the kitchen look good by investing in quality cabinet refinishing when your cabinetry needs to be refreshed.

3 Important Steps in Cabinet Refinishing Prep

February 16, 2020 at 11:52 am | No comment | Category: Blog, Cabinet Refinishing, Cabinet Staining

Prep work is a critically important part of any painting or refinishing project, and cabinet refinishing is no exception.  If you’re planning to refinish your kitchen cabinets, be sure to get your project off on the right foot with these important prep work steps:

  1. Remove all contents. The first thing to do when prepping for your cabinet refinishing project is to remove all contents from all cabinets.  It’s best to box all contents by cabinet, label each box, and then compile all boxes in another room, away from the work site.  This is a time-consuming step, but don’t be tempted to cut corners.  Anything left in the cabinets can encumber your ability to work, or can fall and break, and will certainly get covered in dust as the project progresses.
  2. Clean the cabinets. Wipe away all cobwebs, suction out crumbs using a shop vac or vacuum attachment, and remove as much dirt and debris as you can from all cabinets.  Then wipe them down with a damp cloth, wiping all crevices of each cabinet face, and all other edges and details to remove any grime.  You may need to use a grease cutting cleaning solution on certain cabinets, if needed.  The cleaner you get the cabinetry, the smoother your coatings will go on, and the better your finished product will look!  You’ll also remove the hardware from each door and drawer, unless you’re planning to install all new hardware when your project is complete.  Place the hardware in a plastic bag so that no screws or knobs get lost.
  3. Cover all other surfaces. Cover the countertops, appliances, and other areas that you want to protect.  Chairs, smaller appliances, and other such items can be taken out of the work area to protect them and to give you more room to work.  Cover everything else using drop cloths or painter’s plastic and secure it with masking tape or painter’s tape, and position drop cloths along the floor.

Once you’ve cleared out your stuff from inside the cabinetry, cleaned the cabinets thoroughly, and covered the surrounding surfaces, you’re ready to apply the paint or stain you’ve selected!  Cabinet refinishing is a satisfying and exciting DIY job, but it’s also a challenging and time-consuming one, which is why most Southside, Ponte Vedra, Atlantic Beach, and Jacksonville homeowners choose to call on a great local painting contractor to do the project for them.  The Painting Craftsmen is the best Jacksonville FL painting company and the team to trust with your cabinets.  Give us a call and let’s get started on your cabinet transformation!
