Are you looking to update your kitchen without breaking the bank? You might be thinking, “Can I just paint over my cabinets?”. There are many DIY methods out there that might be tempting, but there are lots of ways that cabinet painting can go wrong. Here are a few tips on what to avoid when painting your cabinets.

Common Cabinet Painting Mistakes

Unfortunately, you can’t just slap a coat of paint on and expect the magazine-quality results you’re looking for. Like many home improvement projects, painting your cabinets takes a substantial amount of prep work. If you miss or rush any steps, it could end up costing you in the long run.

A big mistake people commonly make is not sanding their cabinets before they start painting. Sanding removes the existing paint and ensures that the new paint applies smoothly. Without this crucial step, your paint won’t adhere properly and will likely chip or peel.

Another major mistake is not patching scratches, dents, and other damage before painting. These flaws will be even more apparent with new paint, and it’s harder to fix these mistakes after cabinet painting.

Should You Hire Professional Cabinet Painters?

Tackling cabinet painting on your own is tempting, but it’s a huge project. While it might seem more affordable, if not done properly, it can cost you even more than hiring professionals, and you might not get the look you want.

Professional cabinet painters have the equipment and materials to get the job done right the first time and provide a flawless finished product. Cabinet painting professionals also have experience with kitchen design and can help you choose the best paint color for your space.

From choosing a paint color to completing the painting job, the team at St. Croix Cabinet Solutions in Hudson is here to help give you the kitchen of your dreams without compromise.
