Should You Paint Your Kitchen Cabinets?

Ready to give your kitchen a new look, but not sure you’re ready to com­mit to a full remodel?

It’s a clas­sic conun­drum, espe­cial­ly if your kitchen real­ly meets your needs over­all but you just have the itch for some­thing dif­fer­ent. Maybe you’ve been look­ing at gor­geous white or gray cab­i­nets, with that bold blue island, and sud­den­ly your hon­ey oak fin­ish from 1996 just isn’t cut­ting it.

We get it.

The good news is that you have options. A lot of local home­own­ers are look­ing for cab­i­net paint­ing ser­vices in Delaware Val­ley and the Jer­sey Shore, pre­fer­ring a fresh fin­ish over a long, expen­sive con­struc­tion project.

Is it the right pick for you? Here are a few tips to keep in mind.

Ask your­self these ques­tions before paint­ing your kitchen cabinets…

 Should You Paint Your Kitchen Cabinets?

1. Does your kitchen meet your needs?
We’re talk­ing stor­age, lay­out, and over­all func­tion­al­i­ty. Remem­ber, paint­ing is an awe­some alter­na­tive, but it won’t add pantry space. Be sure that your kitchen checks every oth­er box before invest­ing in the cos­met­ic quality. 

2. Are your cab­i­nets in good con­di­tion?
A skilled cab­i­net painter can fin­ish light repairs as part of the prepa­ra­tion process, plus swap hard­ware, but cab­i­nets that need sub­stan­tial repairs just aren’t a good fit.

3. Are your cab­i­nets worth invest­ing in?
Cab­i­net paint­ing is less expen­sive than a kitchen remod­el, but it isn’t cheap. You need to be sure that your cab­i­nets are worth the time, ener­gy, and resources required to do the job right.

Choose your cab­i­net paint­ing com­pa­ny care­ful­ly
What many home­own­ers don’t real­ize is that cab­i­net paint­ing is a very spe­cial­ized process. Your new fin­ish has to be beau­ti­ful, but it also has to be super durable, long-last­ing, and applied in just the right way. No uneven spots, brush marks, or blemishes.

The best way to do that is to repaint the doors and draw­er faces in a ded­i­cat­ed spray shop. A con­trolled envi­ron­ment allows for an excep­tion­al fin­ish qual­i­ty, reduc­ing dust and oth­er con­t­a­m­i­nants dur­ing the spray­ing process. We’ve seen what hap­pens when well-inten­tioned do-it-your­selfers tack­le the job, and we’ve seen what hap­pens when unqual­i­fied paint­ing com­pa­nies tack­le the job too.

You and your kitchen deserve better.

 Should You Paint Your Kitchen Cabinets?

Here’s a snap­shot of our process:

  1. We begin with an in-per­­son esti­mate, tak­ing mea­sure­ments, dis­cussing your goals, and col­lect­ing the nec­es­sary data.

  2. Next, we’ll pro­vide you with a clear and detailed proposal. 

  3. Once your project begins, we’ll care­ful­ly pre­pare, con­tain, and pro­tect your home. 

  4. Cab­i­net doors and draw­er faces are removed and brought to our spray shop, leav­ing just the cab­i­net box­es and trim to be paint­ed on-site. 

  5. Once the cab­i­net doors and draw­ers are paint­ed, we’ll bring them back and reinstall. 

  6. Any nec­es­sary touch-ups are completed. 

  7. We’ll per­form a final walk­through with you to be cer­tain every detail is complete.

John Byrne's team painted our entire 3,000 sq ft home: walls, ceilings, all woodwork, french doors, closets, and garage. They are meticulous, professional, and worked very hard. They cleaned up at the end of each day. The project took 3 weeks to complete (exactly as Jennifer estimated) and their price was right in line with other bids I had received. We are thrilled to have worked with this company and are so happy to recommend them to others!

As a General Contractor we deal with many sub contractors on a daily basis. Our home was damaged due to a fire. We chose John Byrne Painting to paint the entire interior of our home. We could not be happier with their quality, price or on time performance. It is always a pleasure to work with a company with the professionalism of John Byrne Painting.

John Byrne Painting was doing a job where I worked 10 years ago. Their work stuck with me for a number of reasons. They showed up everyday and on time. Did all the necessary prep work and were very meticulous. Cleaned up everyday. You’d never know they were there. Fast forward 10 years. I needed several rooms in my house painted and thought of their company. I called John Byrne and several other companies to get estimates. John Bryrne came out himself. He was competitive with the estimate and because I had seen his work, I decided to have him do the job.

It was the right decision. Nothing had changed from ten years prior. They did the job in the time he said they would. They were on time every day. The workers had been with him for years and were pleasant and knowledgeable. When I added a few extra things to be painted, it was met with “whatever you need”. It was probably the most pleasant experience I’ve had with anyone working at my house.

If you’ve ever had any kind of work done in your home, you know how hard it is to find reputable workers who actually show up, do the the work they are supposed to do and do it in a timely manner. Love working with this company. I would absolutely use them again. You won’t be disappointed!!

John Byrne is an awesome painting company. They painted newly installed drywall in our warehouse that is 6k sq feet. They were quick to start and very professional. The paint looks great and everything was done neatly. We will definitely use them on our next project! Highly recommended.

John Byrne painting was terrific to work with. Jennifer was very easy to work with from the estimate to scheduling our full exterior painting job. Miguel and his crew were professional and efficient. They were able to complete the job in 2.5 days and were very good about cleaning any mess up at the end of each day. Will definitely use again for other painting needs around our home.

Scott and Juan showed up each morning and worked continually throughout the day. They were professional and respectful of my furniture and home. They did an excellent job of cleaning up. My home has never looked better.

Jennifer does the scheduling. She is professional and great to work with.

I highly recommend John Byrnes for any painting job needed.

Had an amazing experience from beginning to end. Jennifer was great to work with and Scott and Juan were extremely nice and did amazing work. They did 3 of our bedrooms and they were clean and careful and worked to get everything done as quickly as possible. They were also great with my special needs son, they helped him through the process and answered all of his questions (no matter how many times he asked the same one over and over) :) Definitely will use them again in the future.
