Do you dream about renovating your kitchen cabinets to turn them into a stunning testament to the beauties of a modern kitchen Cleveland? One inexpensive and surefire way to liven up your kitchen and give it that fresh touch is through a simple, but well-planned paint job.

For example, say your house was built in the 70s and you want to update the look of your kitchen. The cabinets, while in fantastic condition and possessing that unique vintage look, are dark, drab, and dated. So instead of spending the large amount of money required to replace the cabinets with modern ones, you can use paint to give your cabinets the modern kitchen makeover.

Many homeowners these days who live in older houses are turning away from the dark colors that were en vogue in the 70s towards a lighter look for their kitchens. In addition to replacing the cabinets, another option it to reface them, which involves applying a new wood veneer to the cabinet bases and installing new doors and drawers. However, if you’re looking for the best return on your investment, painting the cabinets a light and modern color is the most efficient and affordable option.

While painting jobs in general are often ideal for those DIY homeowners who like to do their kitchen renovations themselves, it is often recommended that cabinetwork be done professionally to achieve the best result.

But whether you do it yourself or hire a professional, the basic steps remain essentially the same. First completely empty out the cabinets and then wash all of them with Tri-Sodium-Phosphate to remove any grease or dirt build-up. Next, remove all hardware and hinges and mask off all countertops and appliances while covering the floor and sealing the room in plastic to prevent dust or paint from floating around the house.

After you’ve thoroughly sanded and dusted your cabinets, apply a primer coat that is sprayed onto the cabinets and then sanded and dusted. Follow that up with a split-coast mix of primer and finish enamel, one final round of sanding and dusting, and finish by applying a final coat of enamel to the cabinet bases.

So whether you choose to do it yourself or hire a paint professional, completing a smartly planned paint job can give your cabinets that modern kitchen look that you’ve been dreaming on a budget that works for you.
