As far as kitchen remodeling projects go, painting seems to be one of those more straightforward projects a homeowner could tackle as a DIY. After all, painting something doesn’t quite require the specialized knowledge of plumbing or carpentry to say, move a faucet or build a kitchen island. However, homeowners can find themselves in more trouble and stuck with unsatisfactory results than if they had hired a kitchen remodeling contractor in the first place to handle these kitchen painting projects. Here are the projects best left to your kitchen remodeling contractor when your kitchen calls for a fresh coat of paint.
Repainting your kitchen cabinets could be a great way to transform your kitchen’s overall look and update your cabinet’s appearance. Plus, it’s a great way to inject some color into your kitchen design or refine it with a neutral color. Regardless, don’t think that you could repaint your kitchen cabinets as a weekend project — and get that nice painted finish you’re looking for.
Your kitchen remodeling contractor is better equipped for the job because of their team and know-how. The cabinet doors must be taken down, stripped, prepped, painted, finished, then reinstalled, all with necessary wait time for drying in between. Therefore, your kitchen remodeling contractor will bring their professional team on board to quickly and efficiently work through all of these steps for all of your cabinets. The contractor also knows best on priming, application, and sealing techniques. This will yield a better finished product the first time around, so you won’t need to spend more time and money fixing any potential self-made mistakes in a DIY project.
In some homes, painted countertops for the kitchen is still a viable and relatively low-cost project to perk up outdated or dingy looking counters. But of course, this project will only end with great results that will last if a professional kitchen remodeling contractor completes the work. If you have an older home with laminate countertops, painting and sealing them could be the way to go. Depending on the paint job and primer application’s quality, along with the homeowner’s treatment of the counters, painted countertops can last a few years with minimal chipping and scratching. Therefore, it would be best to leave this particular painting project to a pro. Alternatively, you may want to consider looking into affordable new countertops and getting those installed instead of trying to paint over your old laminate counters, should your budget allow it.
