Kitchen Cabinet Paint

Kitchen cabinet panels often shrink and expand throughout the seasons from changes in humidity

Therefore, it’s important to use a paint that is flexible that bonds well to all types of products.  We always use Benjamin Moore colours and their top acrylic paints.

Countertops before or after painting?

Should new countertops be installed before or after the cabinet painting is done? 

In most cases new countertops can installed before or after but it’s important installers hold off on applying any silicon where new paint will be applied. Paint does not stick to silicon!

NOTE: We can remove silicon but it’s time consuming which adds to labour costs. 

If you are changing countertops before painting, installers should not apply Silicon anywhere wood will be painted.

  • You'll have a better matched kitchen
  • Refacing an average sized kitchen generally starts around $8000 which is substantially more than painting cupboards.
  • Refacing usually takes longer to get organized and complete.
