Painting kitchen cabinets - Typical Tasks

Painting kitchen cabinets is a great way for a makeover of your kitchen without replacing those gloomy cabinets. You can clean them up and brush on some new paint. However, doing it the right way first will save you time and money later. Cleaning the old cabinets is one of the most important steps and some try it to do it by hand without an orbital sander - it will work, but will take time. 

Typical cabinet painting tasks include:

  • Remove cabinet doors and drawer fronts
  • Cover worktop, floors, stove, etc.
  • Degreasing surface
  • Filling in holes & divots
  • Sanding cabinets and cabinet boxes
  • Picking suitable colours and finish
  • Paint ot spray paint cabinets
  • Put kitchen back together

Typical duration until kitchen is fully operational again: about 2 1/2 days for hand-painted kitchens.

Hand-painted or spray-painted kitchen?

We are often asked what the differece is between a hand-painted kitchen and a spray-painted kitchen. The first steps like removing the cabinet doors and drawers, the cleaning and priming are with both methods the same. And the assembly at the end is also the same with whatever method you use. However, the painting itself is very different:

Hand-painted kitchen:

  • Kitchen is painted with a brush
  • Painting can be done on-site
  • Work period: about 2 1/2 days 
  • Cheaper solution than spray-painting
  • Limited choice of paint finishes

Spray-painted kitchen:

  • Kitchen is sprayed with paint
  • A spray gun and compressed air is used
  • Painting must be done off-site
  • Work period: about 4-5 days 
  • Expensive solution
  • Full choice of paint finishes

We recommend to our customers in most cases to opt for hand-painting their kitchen, unless the kitchen needs a very specific finish (like some types of gloss) to suit the style of the room. We definitely do not recommend to have the kitchen spray-painted on-site in the house - even if everythings is covered. Spray-painting needs to be done in a clean and dust-free paint shop.
