4 Steps to Kitchen Cabinet Painting

Painting Kitchen Cabinets

More than any other area involved in house painting, kitchen cabinet painting has a wide variation in:

✔ Quality of products that you use

✔ Skill level of the painter

✔ Thoroughness of the project

Painting kitchen cabinets the right way is an expensive undertaking relative to other painting projects. But compared to the cost of new cabinets (or refacing existing cabinets), it’s quite a bargain.

Steps to Kitchen Cabinet Painting

The process for doing a first-class painting job on cabinets is the same regardless of whether the cabinets are stained or painted oak or some other type of wood or material.

Step One

Sand the cabinets thoroughly.

Step Two

Apply an oil-based stain block primer to the cabinets.

Step Three

Sand the cabinets again.

Step Four

Apply the finish coat.

The cabinets need to cure for 2 to 4 days before using.

Best Paint Options

Three major types of paint can be used on cabinets to achieve a first-class, lasting finish.

✔ Lacquer

✔ A high-grade oil-based paint like Sherwin-Williams All Surface Enamel

✔ A high-grade latex paint such as Sherwin-Williams Emerald Urethane.

Each of these paints will provide a long-lasting, beautiful finish when applied using the above steps by a skilled professional painter.
