Should I Paint My Kitchen Cabinets?

Painting your existing cabinets may not seem like an intimidating job, but it’s one of those projects that can quickly become overwhelming once you’re in the trenches!

Unlike painting an interior wall, painting kitchen cabinets requires a long list of materials that can quickly add up, and hiring a professional painter is often a cheaper exercise.

If you find yourself thinking, “Should I paint my kitchen cabinets?” the answer depends on current painting experience level and the state of your cabinets.

Beginners should leave this job to the pros, especially if the condition of the cabinets calls for more prep work beforehand.

Consider Your Cabinet Material

If you’re unsure what the current cabinets are made of, it’s time to do some investigative work. Choosing the best paint for kitchen cabinets will depend on the cabinets material.

Wooden cabinets are more porous and will absorb more of the cabinet paint. On the other hand, paint generally has a harder time sticking to something nonporous like laminate.

Your specific cabinets may need certain a certain cleaning material or repairs to prep them for colour.

These materials need to be considered, as they’ll add to the project’s bottom line.
