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.

EXCELLENT Based on 36 reviews.
The team at Image Painting painted many rooms inside our home. Their prep work was outstanding, the came on time and left our home clean at the end of each day, they completed the work on time, and they were flexible with changes I made along the way. Our home looks very fresh with its new paint!
Their crew did a fine job in all respects. I could not be happier.
I highly recommend using Image Painting. I received a few quotes for an exterior paint job on Capitol Hill. Image was responsive and I had been watching their crew work on a house down my street - happy with the progress.
They did an excellent job and we are so happy with the results. We also loved the crew, who were so respectful, friendly and neat - they left our yard and work area cleaner than they found it.
Image painted our front exterior and iron stairs. They scraped the old paint very thoroughly, applied primer and two coats. Both jobs look terrific and we would use them again.
Image prepped and painted our 100+-year-old row house on Capital Hill and did a wonderful job. They worked very hard to clean the considerable signs of old age with a thorough washing, scraping and patching; and finished up with a beautiful paint job.
Image did a fantastic job with our house. They did great work on updating the exterior carpentry in areas that needed it, and they had a great eye for detail in every square inch that they painted. We would absolutely call on them again for future painting needs, and have already recommended them to friends and neighbors.
Andrew's team at Image Painting was amazing. We hired them to paint the exterior of our home and our deck. They were extremely professional and did an incredible job with an extreme attention to detail and provided the most high quality painting work we've ever had done. Would highly recommend to anyone!
Andrew and his workman made this so easy! We needed our 20+ year old deck re-stained, and they took care of everything! Power-wash, replaced a couple of boards, bought the stain, and even repaired a section we hadn't noticed until work started. We definitely recommend Image Painting!
