Consider These Helpful Tips When Painting Your Kitchen Cabinets

Painting kitchen cabinets seems like a relatively easy feat to accomplish, but it can be challenging. To ensure the best quality of your project, you should take time to prevent a rush job that will ultimately lead to an unpleasing overall product. Painting your kitchen cabinets is a great way to upgrade the decor and features of your kitchen and revitalize your area. Listed below are our most helpful tips when painting your cabinets.

Use The Right Paint When Painting Kitchen Cabinets


Consider these helpful painting tips!

Using standard paint on kitchen cabinets can cause your paint to chip easier. It also makes it more prone to be damaged by cleaning products if you use the wrong cleaning solution when cleaning kitchen cabinets. When painting your cabinets in your kitchen, you should use an alkyd enamel-based paint as these paint types are less resistant to fading, deterioration, and chipping.

Avoid Painting Hardware Features On Kitchen Cabinets

Before beginning your paint job, you should be sure to remember to remove all the attachment parts from your cabinets. All handles, hinges, and screws should be removed, making your overall painting process much more manageable. It may seem time-consuming, but it is well worth the results you will achieve with your final product.

Make Sure You Have Enough Paint Rollers

You must ensure multiple paint rollers when painting your kitchen cabinets. One roller is used for primer, and the other is used for the actual paint. It would work best if you used separate paint rollers that can help produce a smooth and mirror finish with your overall finished product.

Painters Tape Is Helpful For Painting Kitchen Cabinets

Although not foolproof, there will inevitably be challenging areas that also need to be painted. Painters tape helps your process by providing boundaries when painting kitchen cabinets.

Limit The Amount Of Paint Used

When applying paint, avoid heavy application. Drips happen, and using paint, especially enamel paint, tends to begin curing immediately, which results in unsightly drip marks. These marks have to be sanded and re-painted.
