Auburn Bay – Kitchen Island Repainting Project

Kitchen Island repainting is a great way to improve the look of a boring or monotonous kitchen. With Calgary cabinet painters, Stylux Painting, creating a unique and contrasting look is not only possible, they make the process simple and easy.

While there is no right or wrong way to create the perfect kitchen, there are certain elements that can undeniably improve any kitchen. An island is a very popular choice for any home, which is why it is often a big part of any kitchen makeover.

Should You Replace or Repaint Your Kitchen Island?

One deciding factor when considering repainting your kitchen island or replacing it is evaluating how well built the cabinets actually are.

Specifically, if the cabinets are built well enough, it would be a rather poor decision to replace them entirely as you might be replacing your perfectly well built cabinets with new cabinets that aren’t built from the same quality of materials. Believe it not, this is often the case. We often see cabinets tyhat are decades old, built from solid wood and in good structural condition that simply need a new look. Many newly manufactured cabinets are constructed from particle board and just can’t be expected to last as long as quality built cabinets.

Take the time to see in what condition your cabinets are before making such a major decision, we are happy to take a look with you and be honest about how we can improve them through our kithen island repainting process.

Kitchen Island Repainting With Stylux Painting

The island is a natural focal point of the kitchen, but homeowners often neglect to maintain or upgrade it. A fresh, unique island color can be an excellent way to spruce up your kitchen. It will draw the eye of anyone who enters the room, but the colour won’t overwhelm the space the way it might on the walls or cupboards. It’s a perfect opportunity to create some contrast to wall colours, surrounding upper and lower cabinet sections and flooring.

Preparing Your Kitchen Cabinets For Refinishing

When it comes to kitchen cabinet refinishing, preparation is key. Painters need to have the right tools and materials on hand, as well as enough ventilation to keep the workspace comfortable and safe. Dismantling the kitchen doors and drawers is also a good idea, as this will make it easier to paint them evenly. Once everything is ready, the actual painting process can begin. For best results, hire our professional cabinet painters who have experience with kitchen cabinet refinishing. With their expertise, your kitchen cabinets will look like new in no time!

  1. You will need to empty the drawers and the cabinets or cupboards before we start the project. It is also best to remove the cabinet doors and drawers. Once removed, we will label the doors and drawers hinges and hardware, so it will be easier to return to their right spot.
  2. After removing the doors and drawers, we need to clean all the surfaces to remove the grease stains and dirt. Check for dents and repair any damages in your cabinet with wood filler.
  3. Surface prep is the biggest failure point for the adhesion of the new finish. If the old paint is peeling or cracking, the old paint needs to be removed. There are stripping products that can make the work easy. Apply the stripping liquid to the cabinet’s old paint and use a scraper to scratch it off the surface. Sand the surface if there are leftover paints.
  4. Vacuum or wipe the whole area to make everything dust-free before you start painting.
  5. Begin covering the countertops, furniture, and appliances with dust barriers to protect them from over-spray and dust from the painting and sanding. Sand the surface in a moderate grind to help the cabinet with paint absorption.

Priming Kitchen Cabinets

To achieve the quality final factory like finish you desire, we use the high-quality primer that will reveal the best hue of your chosen kitchen cabinet colour.

  1. We start with the inside of the cabinet frame before painting the exterior body. We begin with the back-most portion of the cabinet, the one leaning off the wall, going to its front part. It is best to use a brush to cover the edges and the details of the cabinet. We ensure to paint in one direction for an even and precise final coating.
  2. We paint the large areas using a mini roller. The primer doesn’t have to look flawless. It only needs to provide a good base for the finish paint.
  3. Use your dry roller or brush to lay off any excess paint build-up on the surface.
  4. Finally, we paint the cabinet doors and kitchen drawers. We start the process by painting the backside and applying even coats. The paint mustn’t pool on the details or the corners. Use rotating rack and drying rack for best results and convenient painting.

Painting Your Kitchen Cabinets

When the primer dried up, we can start painting the kitchen frames using an airless sprayer, roller, or paintbrush with the colour of your choice

  1. Start painting with the cabinet frames evenly in the same direction. Make sure to cover the corners and details of the cabinet frame. Remember to lay off the excess paint build-up after the surface has been painted.
  2. Paint the cabinet doors and drawers’ front and back pieces. Do not rush, and let the paint sit completely.
  3. Apply a second coat of paint. This is your finishing coat.
