When looking to update the look and feel of your home, the first area that many people seek to change is their Kitchen. There is really no other room that can provide such a drastic change in the appearance of a home. However, once you install new floors, switch out your appliances and look at new counter tops, you find that installing new cabinets is simply out of your budget. This is where the wonders of cabinet painting can allow you to achieve the drastic change you would like to achieve at a fraction of the cost of new cabinets. Cabinet painting, when done properly, can transform your cabinets and provide the clean, durable finish you would expect if you purchased them new. You NEED to rely on experienced St. Louis Cabinet Painters to handle this kind of painting job.
Durable, Beautiful Cabinet Painting & ReFinishing
BRS Custom Painting, a A+ rated St. Louis cabinet painting company, takes the necessary steps to ensure not only a beautiful finish, but a durable finish to withstand the day-to-day activities in your kitchen. Like any painting project, the first step is the preparation. All cabinet doors and drawers are removed, labeled and taken back to our shop. We then use a liquid de-glosser to remove the previous finish on all doors, drawers and cabinet bodies to ensure the the paint will adhere properly to the surfaces. All surrounding walls, the insides of the cabinet bodies and flooring are then covered using paper, plastic and drop cloths to ensure that only your cabinets are being painted. In addition to the preparation, it is very important to use the proper paints for cabinet painting to ensure the durability and finish is high quality. BRS Custom Painting uses Pro-Cryl (primer) and Sher-Cryl (finish) from Sherwin Williams on all of our cabinet painting projects.
Once all of the paintable surfaces have been de-glossed, we apply a primer coat using an HVLP (High Velocity Low Pressure) sprayer to ensure a uniform finish and just the right amount of paint. This is first done in the kitchen on the cabinet bodies and then we return to our shop to complete the same process on the doors and drawers. After all of the surfaces are primed, we allow a minimum of 24 hours for the primer to cure and bond to the substrate. Following this curing time, a finish coat is applied in the same manor as the primer coat. However, we extend the curing time of the finish coat to a minimum of 48 hours. As a rule of thumb, the longer you allow the paint to cure prior to re-installation, the more durable the finish will be.
Now that all surfaces have been de-glossed, primed and painted, BRS Custom Painting re-installs all of the doors and drawers, removes any paper, plastic or drop cloths and re-installs the cabinets’ hardware. We suggest that for a more drastic transformation that you purchase new handles for the doors and drawers to add a new accent to the cabinets. Once everything is re-installed, you will be free to use your cabinets in the same way you have in the past. Not only that, but you can brag to your friends and family about all of the money you saved by painting instead of replacing.
