Want to freshen up your kitchen cabinets, but you don’t want to spend a fortune on brand new cabinets that fit into your living space perfectly, simply update your existing cabinets with a fresh coat of paint. This is where professional cabinet painters in Toronto will come in handy.
Step One: Shop
Decide on a color and style, and pop down to your local hardware or home improvement store to buy all the equipment and paint you need. Or buy a convenient painting kit.
Modern paints offer you plenty of choices, look for something that works with your style and budget.
Step Two: Prep
Remove the cabinet doors and number them so that they will be quick and easy to put back in the right place when you’ve finished painting.
Remove all hardware, like hinges and handles, from the cabinet doors and draws.
If the doors are foil-wrapped or laminated, de-gloss the cabinets before you add your primer or paint.
Step Three: Sand
Sand the doors so that the new paint adheres properly to the cabinets – even when using chalk paints your cabinets require a light sanding before you paint.
You can sand the cabinets by hand but it is a big job and an orbital sander works wonders for large, flat areas.
For hard to reach places and delicate work, use a sanding sponge and sanding block.
Step Four: Paint
Work in a well ventilated area as some paints give off a lot of fumes.
Apply the paint with either a brush or a high-volume, low pressure (HVLP) paint sprayer
Step Five: Finishing touches
Once the paint is dry all that remains is to put new hardware on your refinished cabinet doors and draws and put everything back together and your kitchen will look as good as new.
If you don’t want to go the DIY route, there are plenty of cabinet painters in Toronto who specialize in cost effective paint solutions, and will be more than happy to do the job for you.
