However, homeowners looking to cost-effectively enhance the look of their kitchen should think about refinishing existing cabinets.
Recently, a family in Warrington decided to do just that to upgrade their builder-grade cabinets.
How To Paint Cabinets Properly
The start-to-finish process of refinishing existing cabinets involves three steps:
- Sand down existing surfaces and prime using adhesion primer for the best grip.
- Paint in desired color using a Rich Lux Semi-Gloss which is best suited for kitchen surfaces (particularly cabinets).
- Glaze for additional effect.
As a small add-on to the project, the bar (pictured below) was refinished and given an antique effect by sanding the edges.
The result certainly gives the kitchen an entirely new feel – all at a fraction the cost of either remodeling entirely or replacing the cabinets!
