If you’re looking to update or remodel your kitchen without a costly hassle, sometimes just simply painting the cabinets will do the trick. Get the scoop on kitchen cabinet enameling and learn how cabinet refinishing can give your whole kitchen a fresh new look.
The process of kitchen cabinet enameling is really quite easy. You start with selecting a primer. This will depend on the type of cabinets you have. You’ll have to have the primer tinted to whatever color the top coat is. It’s important that you do this correctly because dark surfaces can bleed right through the top coat.
Next, you’ll have to choose between oil-based or water-based paint. If you use oil-based paint you’ll want to make sure that the area you’re working in is well ventilated. Although the smell might be overbearing, it does provide you with a nice, durable outcome. Water-based paint is a bit easier to work with since it’s not as potent as oil-based paint and it’s easier to clean up. Whichever one you choose to go with, the most important thing is that you go with the best quality that you can find.
Getting the Job Done
You’ll need to remove the cabinets in order to paint them. All doors, drawers, and shelves will have to come out since painting over hardware is not good. You’ll need to prepare the surfaces by heavily cleaning them and then sanding them down. You’ll have to carefully and separately prime and paint all parts and then put them back together when they are completely dry.
