What paints is used on Kitchen cabinets?

            There are many types of paints and stains which can be used to paint or stain cabinets, we have chosen a couple of brands and paints which have passed years and years of use and several test including a cross hatch test.  A cross hatch test is taking a painted surface after it has cured and using a razor making cross hatch marks similar to a tic tac toe board.  Then we take masking tape and press it hard firming and pull off, we are looking to see if the paint comes off or if the wood breaks off and with Sherwin Williams Emerald Urethane and PPG Breakthrough V50 the wood brakes off and the paint stays put showing excellent adhesion.


Are painted kitchen cabinets durable?

            Extremely if done correctly, the 17 step process we do is to ensure outstanding adhesion and durability to last for untold years under normal wear and use.


Do the insides of the kitchen cabinets get painted?

            Typically we do not paint the inside of the kitchen cabinets being they are usually a different color to begin with, however if there is a glass door cabinet this is something we discuss especially if there is clear glass.  We also paint inside if they are open shelves, plate racks, wine racks and glass racks.

Can you paint laminated kitchen cabinets?

            Yes we can and we are able to give a 6 year warranty, we have painted many, many laminated cabinets over the years and they look fabulous today.  We can also paint Thermofoil cabinets.
