Are you tired of those old looking kitchen cabinets? Are ready for a change but don’t want to be without the use of your kitchen for months. Consider painting your cabinetry. Painting your kitchen or bathroom cabinetry is a great way to get a new look without disrupting your household for an extended period of time. As a matter of fact, if you live in an older home you may have cabinetry that is more structurally sound than the cabinets that are being produced at many cabinetry factories today. Moreover, the cost of painting those cabinets will be lower than putting in new quality cabinets.
When we talk about painted cabinets, we’re not talking about slapping a white coat of paint on your cabinets. Although we will be pleased to give you beautiful solid white cabinetry if that is what you desire, Gold Standard Finishes LLC provides high-end painted cabinetry finishes that many cabinetry companies charge a premium to deliver. We can over glaze the painted cabinetry to bring a beautiful depth to the painted finish. Glazing highlights the detailing of your cabinetry too. We have an Allied ASID interior designer on staff who can help pick out a new cabinetry finish or pick out colors to coordinate with existing room finishes.
Let’s face it; many kitchen cabinets have seen better days. They are covered in dirt and grease from years of use. Your cabinets may feel sticky and grimy, but the cabinet box is strong. By painting your cabinetry you will get a like new finish and a custom look without custom prices. If you have a small kitchen with dark cabinetry, newly painted light cabinetry will dramatically change the look of your kitchen. Perhaps instead of builder grade oak cabinets you long for the look of modern black or charcoal cabinetry that you see on TV or in design magazines. Gold Standard Finishes LLC can give you that look. There also are many high end decorative touches that can be added to your cabinets to reflect your personal style and dramatically change the look of your painted cabinetry.
Another advantage of painting is the reduction in the amount of kitchen downtime. When cabinets are removed, new kitchen countertops cannot be ordered until the new cabinets have been installed. The homeowner has to wait twice, first for the new cabinets to be installed and then secondly after the countertop installer measures for the new countertop. When choosing to paint your cabinetry, measurements can be taken for new countertops as soon as possible after the old countertops are removed. Fabrication of the new countertops can occur simultaneously during the time the cabinets are being painted.
There is one more consideration that needs to be addressed. Many people buy homes that have beautiful granite or natural stone countertops. However, the cabinetry underneath is often either very dated or not to the new owners’ tastes. Stone countertops cannot be removed and then reinstalled on newly installed base cabinets. Stone countertops will most likely crack and break during removal. If you love the granite in your home, this is another very good reason for going with refinishing the cabinets with a furniture grade finish rather than replacing the existing cabinets.
So consider painting those tired, dirty or undesirable cabinets. Get a new look for your kitchen at a fraction of the cost and at a fraction of the downtime. Also check out our faux finishing photos.
