At Walls By Design, we’ve perfected the art and science of painting kitchen cabinets, bathroom cabinets, and all of the other built-in cabinetry you might have in your home.

With over 17 years experience in interior painting, in the last several years, we’ve been doing more and more cabinet painting projects throughout the Denver metro area.  Our clients are consistently excited about the benefits of painting their cabinets rather than staining, replacing, or refacing them.

As a result, we’ve streamlined and perfected the process, to ensure top quality cabinet painting, with as little disruption to your life as possible.  You’ll find that this is a major advantage vs. DIY plans.

Here are the main steps involved in painting kitchen cabinets as well as other types of cabinets:

Disassembly: We take the cabinet doors, drawers, and hardware apart. As we disassemble the cabinets, we mark all the parts and follow a system to ensure that nothing gets out of order or lost.

Cleaning And Sanding: We clean the surfaces of the doors, drawers, and cabinets, then sand them, then clean them again. This attention to detail in the prepping process is what helps produce the high-quality work that will make your cabinets look brand new.

Priming: We use a high-quality bonding primer to make sure that the paint that we apply to the cabinets will adhere and resist wear and tear.

Buffing: Once the primer is dry, we lightly buff the doors, drawers, and cabinets.

Caulking: After we’ve applied the first coat of primer, we caulk the joints and any gaps in the cabinets and doors. This added step of caulking helps ensure a smooth, uniform surface.

Priming Again: If your cabinets were stained in a dark color, we’ll apply a stain blocking primer as our second coat. If the cabinets were stained in a lighter color, we’ll add a second bonding coat as the primer.

Buffing Again: After the primer is dry, we buff again.

Painting: Typically, we apply two coats of a high-quality cabinet paint. We paint the boxes or frames of your cabinets in place, using brushes and rollers, to ensure the highest quality. We apply light coats of paint, with no heavy brush marks.

We take the doors and drawers out to our mobile workshop (a 20-foot trailer that we bring to your home) or back to our warehouse and spray them. By spraying the doors and drawers in a confined area, this helps ensure that dust and other particles don’t adhere to the finished surfaces.

Assembly: We put your cabinet doors and drawers back into place and reinstall all of the hardware, including hinges, latches, and cabinet knobs.

Our unique process is one of the many reasons we believe that we’ll be the best fit for you.  How do you chose an interior painting contractor?  This link will offer some questions and answers to assist you.
