Our top tips for painting your cabinets.
Here are some of our top recommendations for achieving the best results when painting your kitchen or bathroom cabinets.
Choose the right paint
As with any paint project, picking the right paint for your cabinets is key. For wood cabinets, you have more options as you can sand down the current finish and just repaint. For laminate cabinets, you will need a bonding primer before you apply paint. Semi-Gloss or Satin finishes are best for cabinets as they are easiest to clean and won’t show as much wear and tear.
Prepare the cabinets
Take a look at the condition of your cabinets. If they are already painted and the paint is in good condition, you can clean and paint over the old paint. But, you may need to sand or strip the surfaces before you apply a new coat of paint. Make sure you empty the cabinets, remove any dirt or grease on the surfaces, and vacuum the interior to remove all the dirt and debris.
Prime the cabinets
Applying a primer is an important step as it provides a suitable surface for the paint to stick to and cover any small imperfections. Start with the inside of the cabinet and work your way out. Once you’ve got the inside of the cabinet painted, paint the frames, and then move on to the front and backs of the cabinet doors. You’ll need to leave plenty of time for the primer to dry before you move onto the final step: paint!
Get to painting
Use a similar pattern as you did with the primer and start with the interior of the cabinets and work your way out. You can use a high-quality brush for the smaller areas and corners and a foam roller for the doors. Always allow time for the paint to dry in between coats.
