5 Reasons Why You Should Paint Kitchen Cabinets

5 Reasons Why You Should Paint Kitchen Cabinets

Painting kitchen cabinets is an excellent way to bring life to your kitchen without blowing your budget. You’ll be amazed at just how much you can transform a space, creating the basis for further redecorations or just refreshing an existing room that was starting to look tired.

If you’re wondering, “should I paint my kitchen cabinets?”, then Oahu Pro Painters has the answer.

Absolutely, you should!

With a little TLC, your old kitchen cabinets can be stripped of their old paintwork and refurbished to look completely new.

Still not sure? Take a look at these five reasons why painting old kitchen cabinets could be the perfect renovation idea for your home.

Old Fashioned Cabinets Could Look Trendy and New

You don’t need to replace old-fashioned kitchen cabinets to make them look new. The paintwork, color, and general condition of your cabinets determine how modern your kitchen looks, and you can do a lot with a lick of paint.

After you have sanded down your cabinet doors and panels, you’ll get a feel of their true condition. If they are still solid and usable, with a little love and attention, a good paint job can completely transform how your kitchen looks. You can easily turn a 1980s kitchen into a 2020s kitchen, and on a budget, too!

Bad Functionality

Over time, cabinet doors might become loose or they may not shut properly. Sometimes it means that the cabinets need replacing or the joints have been damaged, but in many instances, it just means that the hinges need replacing.

A professional cabinet refinishing and painting company, like Oahu Pro Painters, can help you determine whether your kitchen really needs replacing or if you could benefit from a fresh paint job and hinge repairs. You’ll be amazed at how easily we can turn old kitchens into functional, modern spaces!

Add Value to Your Home

The condition of your kitchen has a fairly large impact on the value of your home, as an old kitchen will typically need to be replaced by new owners pretty quickly.

Refurbishing old kitchen cabinets turns old kitchens into functional spaces that potential buyers know they won’t have to spend money on. Sometimes, the difference between selling a property and losing the interest of potential buyers is the prospect of having to spend thousands of extra dollars to make a home liveable.

Old fashioned kitchen cabinets don’t inspire potential buyers and make it difficult for people to imagine living in a property without going through extensive renovation work first…so don’t let it happen! Updating old kitchen cabinets completely removes this problem and helps you make a sale.

Poor Condition of Paint

Even when a kitchen is perfectly functional, old paint just doesn’t look good. It is not only extremely expensive to replace functional cabinets with old paint, but it’s extremely wasteful.

If you notice paint bubbling, peeling, or flaking, don’t assume you need to replace your entire kitchen. This occurs when water gets under the paint, which isn’t uncommon in kitchens. It might also be the result of low-quality paint having been used on your original kitchen cabinet doors or damage from years of use.

Old paint makes otherwise functional kitchens look terrible, and a fresh coat can make a world of difference.

Cheaper Than Replacing

This one is such a huge deal that we wanted to reiterate it. A new kitchen can easily cost tens of thousands of dollars, and that’s without the new appliances!

Whether you’re planning on selling your home or not, a new kitchen is time-consuming and expensive, and in many cases just isn’t worth it.

At Oahu Pro Painters, we’ve helped a huge number of Hawaii homeowners transform their kitchens with hard work, expertise, and great quality paint. You can choose from a huge range of paints and finishes, and even work with one of our color specialists to choose the best combination of colors.

You’ll get the feeling of a total kitchen renovation at a fraction of the cost.
