Cabinet Repainting in Barrington, IL

Will paint stick to already painted cabinets?

Yes it will. Repainting cabinets is just like painting everything else, the right prep work.

To ensure paint sticks to a already painted surface you must:

  • clean all surfaces to be painted
  • make sure there is no grease/oil residue on the cabinets
  • scuff sand all surfaces to make sure the primer has something to “bite” into
  • use a good bonding primer
  • allow surfaces to dry between each step of the way
  • read more here...

What is bite? Some people say tooth.. but we want to create a surface that primer can stick too. We do this by cleaning, then sanding the surface. By the eye, we don’t see it, but when we use scuff pads or 320 grit sand paper, we have broke the surface of the previous paint finish. This process make it dull looking, creating small scratches that the primer can mechanically bond too.

What color can I paint my painted cabinets?

The great thing about repainting your cabinets is that you can select any color you want! We will say- we cannot use the bright whites from Behr. But With all the other color options out there- there are plenty!!!

If you are getting new tile or counters, then make sure to have that part done 1st. This will also help in your color selections.
