As the weather warms up, many of us will have the urge to do some spring cleaning.
While it’s great to have a clean, de-cluttered house, we know we’re not the only ones who want to give our homes a little more TLC after the spring clean.
One of the easiest and cheapest ways to do this, is by renovating what you already have. From creating prints on bathroom tiles to upholstering your living room, a lot of the makeover materials are already waiting for you at home!
But what about the kitchen? For most, the kitchen is the most-used area of the house, and it can be daunting to mess with cabinets and cabinet-tops, especially if you read some of the horror stories available on the internet!
Due to the amount of ways painting your own cabinets yourself can (and often does) go wrong, we highly recommend using a professional to ensure the job is done properly.
So, is it possible to renovate your own kitchen cabinets? And what’s the best way to do it?
The key to doing it right, however, is research. Many blogs and videos will make the process look easy, but the truth is it takes time and dedication – and good old fashioned elbow grease.
As we mentioned previously, kitchens are often a statement of the house. Ensuring you know what you’re working with will result in success. Are your cabinets laminated? Have they been painted before?
What paint do you need to work with? There are a number of options and applications available, including spray paints and roll paints.
Whether you do it yourself or hire professional help, one of the most important factors to consider is the color you’re going for.
Some questions you should ask yourself are: Does it go with the rest of the house? Will marks appear on it very easily? Is the color a fashion-statement, or will I still like it in 5 years time?
The easiest way to renovate your kitchen cabinets with paint and avoid mistakes, is by hiring a cabinet painting company who knows exactly what they’re doing.
Obviously, the cost of doing it yourself versus hiring help is important to consider.
However, the amount of botched painting jobs we’ve come across ourselves means we can make a great case for leaving it to the experts in the first place.
Paint and the materials are costly – why not skip the part where you spend money to do it yourself then have to get it corrected, and just pay a pro to paint it right from the start!
If you use the incorrect tools or materials, you may end up paying even more for a whole new set of kitchen cabinets – something nobody wants to buy unnecessarily!
When choosing a painting crew, make sure to hire a company who are experts at what they do.
