Kitchen Cabinet Repainting:

Here are some photos of Kitchen Cabinet Repainting in Kitchener that we have finished. The cabinets had been hand painted with a very good paint and the Painter did an excellent job. You could hardly see the brush marks. The problem was the paint was peeling after 1 year around the handles and the home owner was not happy. I have heard people in the paint store recommending paint and primer in 1 to paint kitchen cabinets. The problem is this paint and the paint in the photos is meant for painting walls and will never stand up to the difficulties around kitchen sinks, water, fingernails around knobs and pulls. We have spent years finding out the best way to prime and repaint your cabinets so the job will be excellent, and you will be a happy customer.

Our Kitchen Cabinet Repainting Process:

If it sounds like we may be able to help you, you can have a free in home evaluation to see if we would like to work with each other. If we are spraying – the whole job takes usually a week or less. We will come and remove the doors. We work on the doors in the shop and then a couple days later we will work on the boxes at your place , lastly we replace the doors. Our prep process is first to wash the oils off the doors, then sand, prime with oil, sand again, then 2 coats of water based lacquer.

Kitchen Cabinet Repainting Photos:

In the photos below, I didn’t get a before picture. The first pic is already after spraying and I am touching up further to get rid of the hand painted look. The final finish is sprayed with a water borne lacquer which will give you all the qualities of a new finish from a manufacturer. When You are Repainting your Cabinets, think twice before doing this job yourself.

  5. admin says:

    Hi – probably the best would be to send some pictures to info@clean-state.com and we can take a look


  6. admin says:

    Only way to keep the stain look is to refinish or stain look refinish

    We don’t refinish with stain or stain look, we just refinish and paint colors with a water based Laquer

    Call me if your looking to paint

    I have solid oak cabinets that have a very noticeable grain. Would love to have them sprayed dark…would the grain still show?

  8. Helen says:

    My cupboards are NOT wood. They have a vinyl coating and are a red cedar colour. I would like to have them painted an “off white” or white. Is this a major job?

  9. admin says:

    Hi Helen,

    Each set of cabinets have their own way to deal with them to make the paint adhere properly
    We go through a process of identifying the surface, and what process to go through. Sometimes we
    have to say we can’t help you. To me each kitchen is a major job to do it properly. Small kitchens
    might cost $1600 and up to spray. Send photo’s to info@clean-state.com I can give more info

    Hope that helps!

    Hi Lynne,

    The way I have been doing Oak is 2 primer plus 2 coats, so there is still a grain but much less. I like the look. I don’t have any good photo’s on the website with a close up. I will try to put some photo on
    today with a close up of oak.

  11. admin says:

    Hi Lynne, I didn’t have any photos of dark doors but I put some up with white.
    The grain shows mostly when the light is shining along the door.


  12. Elva says:

    Would you accept jobs in the Hamilton area?

  13. admin says:

    Yes we can go to Hamilton – best is to send some info and photo’s first and if everything looks OK
    I’ll come out for a free Estimate with some samples to show you.

    i need a price on have my oak cupboard redone. I have 8 normal size cupboard doors, 8 smaller ones, 2 with glass, and 3 pantry cupboard doors, and one shelf.
    Thank you

  15. admin says:

    Sure thing, could you email some photos and your contact details and address to info@clean-state.com
    and I can set up an Estimate ASAP.

  16. Doris says:

    My cupboards were painted once, could they be done again?

  17. admin says:

    Yes we can repaint. We identify the problem and paints previously used and find the solution.
    most times it’s not a problem, I’d have to see, Each job is unique and has it’s own solution.
    Depends on the job, if the paint is peeling they might need stripping, if the paint is showing ugly brush marks
    it’s almost easier to strip this too. both would be more expensive.
