Types of Services Offered

Cabinet Painting & Refinishing

When it comes to cabinet painting and refinishing, the choice of cabinet materials significantly affects the process and the results. Different materials have varying characteristics, and the approach to refinishing may differ. Here’s an overview of various cabinet materials and considerations for each in the context of painting and refinishing:

Solid Wood

  • Advantages: Solid wood cabinets, typically made from hardwoods like oak, maple, cherry, or birch, offer durability, a rich appearance, and the ability to be sanded and refinished multiple times.
  • Refinishing: Solid wood cabinets are excellent candidates for refinishing because they can be sanded to remove the existing finish and refinished with paint or stain.
  • Painting: Solid wood cabinets can be painted, and the grain may be visible through the paint, providing a unique texture.


  • Advantages: Laminate cabinets are budget-friendly and have a smooth, easy-to-clean surface. They come in various colors and patterns.
  • Refinishing: Laminate cabinets can be challenging to refinish because the laminate surface must readily accept paint or stains. Proper surface preparation, including sanding and suitable primers, is essential for adhesion.
  • Painting: Laminate cabinets can be painted, but using the correct type of primer and paint designed for laminate surfaces is essential.


  • Advantages: Thermofoil cabinets have a sleek, modern appearance and are easy to clean. They come in a variety of colors and styles.
  • Refinishing: Refinishing thermofoil cabinets can be challenging because the thermofoil surface is essentially a thin layer of PVC that may not readily accept new finishes. Careful surface preparation is essential for adhesion.
  • Painting: Thermofoil cabinets can be painted with appropriate preparation and priming, but choosing a paint suitable for the PVC surface is important.


(MDF – Medium-Density Fiberboard)

  • Advantages: MDF is an engineered wood product known for its smooth and consistent surface. It is often used for cabinet doors and panels.
  • Refinishing: MDF can be refinished, but the process may involve filling any imperfections, sanding, and careful application of paint or finish.
  • Painting: MDF cabinets take paint well and provide a uniform and smooth finish when properly primed and painted.


  • Advantages: Particleboard is a cost-effective cabinet material but less durable than solid wood or MDF.
  • Refinishing: Refinishing particleboard cabinets may be limited due to the material’s low density and susceptibility to moisture damage. Careful preparation and moisture-resistant finishes are crucial.


Particleboard cabinets can be painted, but it’s essential to seal the surface properly to prevent moisture absorption.

The Process

The cabinet painting and refinishing process involves several steps to transform the appearance of kitchen cabinets.

Cabinet Painters - Downtown Finishes LLC

The process begins with a thorough assessment of the cabinets. This includes examining the cabinet material, condition, and any necessary repairs. Identifying any dents, scratches, or other imperfections that require attention is essential.

Color and material selection are crucial aspects of cabinet painting and refinishing projects, as they significantly influence the overall look and feel of your cabinets and, by extension, your entire space. When selecting colors and materials for cabinet painting and refinishing, our professionals can provide guidance based on your specific needs and preferences.

Cabinet surfaces are sanded to remove the existing finish or paint. This step is crucial for achieving a smooth and even base for the new finish. The level of sanding required may vary depending on the condition of the cabinets and the desired outcome.

A primer is applied to the sanded cabinet surfaces. Primer helps the new paint adhere securely and evenly to the cabinets. It also blocks any stains or discolorations from bleeding through.

This is where the transformation takes place. Cabinets are painted with a fresh coat of paint in the chosen color or refinished with a new stain or clear coat. Multiple coats may be applied as needed to achieve the desired finish.

The professional cabinet painting services conduct a final inspection to ensure that the cabinets meet quality standards and that the finish is uniform and flawless. Any touch-ups or adjustments are made as needed.

Cabinet painting and refinishing is the process of giving new life to existing cabinets by applying fresh paint, stain, or finish. It’s an effective way to update the look of cabinets without the need for complete replacement.

The cost varies based on factors like cabinet size, materials, current condition, and the extent of customization. It can range from a few hundred to several thousand dollars on average.

Most cabinet types, including wood, laminate, thermofoil, fiberboard, and particleboard, can be painted or refinished. However, the specific preparation and painting process may vary depending on the material.

The timeline depends on the scope of the project and drying times between coats. Generally, it can take several days to a few weeks to complete a cabinet painting or refinishing project.

There are numerous color choices and finishes available, ranging from classic whites and neutrals to bold colors and various sheen levels like matte, satin, semi-gloss, and high-gloss.

When done professionally, cabinet painting and refinishing can be highly durable and provide long-lasting results. Proper surface preparation and high-quality materials contribute to durability.

DIY cabinet painting and refinishing are possible, but it requires proper tools, materials, skills, and attention to detail. Many homeowners choose to hire professionals to ensure a high-quality finish.

It’s advisable to remove the contents of your cabinets before painting or refinishing to protect them from dust and paint. This also allows for better access to the cabinet surfaces.

Cabinet painting can be environmentally friendly, especially when using low-VOC (volatile organic compound) or eco-friendly paints. It reduces waste by reusing existing cabinets instead of replacing them.
