Preparation is Critical

Painting kitchen cabinets require specialized skills. There is a correct way and wrong way to doing this home improvement project. Many of the cabinets we’ve seen painted are not done the correct way. Kitchen cabinets are a unique place in your home that you utilize a great deal. Since your cabinets are touched, opened and interacted with constantly they require special treatment. They are not like the walls in your home that are typically untouched. Therefore, you need to have your cabinets painted the right way.

When you are painting kitchen cabinets, the foundation is very important.

Here’s an overview of the preparation we follow when painting kitchen cabinets:

  • Cover and protect all surfaces
  • Remove all hardware
  • Label all doors and drawers
  • Remove all doors and drawers
  • Buff sand all surfaces with sandpaper
  • Wipe all surfaces with a de-glossing agent
  • Apply one coat of bonding primer
  • Apply one coat of primer (needed only if wood is an open grain like oak or cabinets have a dark stain)
  • Buff sand in-between primer coats

The Top Coat and Finish Coats

The next stage is to paint the kitchen cupboards with a great inside trim product. We utilize an acrylic paint that dries quick and cures strong with a smooth finish. Spraying all the door and drawer fronts enables us to get a near factory finish on the surfaces that are seen the most. It’s better to apply a few light coats than a single heavy one. The heavier it’s put on, the messier it will look.

Image did a terrific job repainting the outside of our old DC rowhouse! Grevy and his team did excellent, careful work--they did tons of time-consuming prep before they even started painting--and they were always friendly, punctual, and professional. Jankeh emailed us every week or two before they started the job to check in about the likely start date, and they ended up being able to start about a month before we expected! The house looks great, and I really appreciate how communicative and reliable everyone at Image was. I'd definitely hire them again!

This is the second time I've used Image Painting for exterior and interior painting. The quality and thoroughness of their work is impressive. For example, they last painted my exterior almost 14 years ago. That exterior paint was still in great physical shape (e.g., no flaking or peeling), it was just time for a refresh. I really appreciated the communication from the team: the foreman did a thorough walkthrough with me the first day to ensure we were all working from the same instructions, the project manager stopped by multiple times to check on progress, and Andrew (the owner) dropped by once or twice. The team worked quickly and professionally, prepping, painting and cleaning up. Andrew and the team worked with me to find the correct paints for the project and didn't just push me to color match with their vendor or use lower quality paints on high traffic areas. Even with prepping and sanding several walls and a banister, they did a great job keeping dust to a minimum. They were very responsive to small errors I pointed out, even when it meant going back to patch, sand and paint nail pops that had been hard to see, or coming back to sand and repaint something I found after they were done. I'd definitely highly recommend them and use them again.

I will be using Image Painting for my exterior and interior paint and repair needs going forward. From the start of the estimate to the completion of the job, everyone there was professional, helpful and patient. I had a complex job inside and outside of the house that changed in scope and took months to get final approval for from an HOA and a separate company's work. Andrew at Image Painting was there throughout the process to help get things set up. Once the job was underway and after it was complete, Jankeh at Image Painting personally came to the site to inspect the work. Overall a solid company with people who care about the job being done right.
