If you're considering a kitchen or bathroom remodel, we can paint your cabinets and give them a brand-new look. When it comes to home improvement projects, few things make as big of a transformation as paint. A fresh coat of paint can breathe new life into tired cabinets, bookcases, and other furnishings. We have the experience and expertise to properly prepare surfaces for paint, which can help ensure a smooth and even finish. Bays' interior painting team can also refinish your cabinets for a significantly less price than it would cost you to install new ones.
Bring more life into your home by adding a fresh coat of paint to your cabinets.

Our cabinet painting projects will follow this process:
We take all of the hardware and door/drawers off before we paint. If you are changing hardware, we must have it in hand the day we start to label things because if you need holes filled or drilled, this must also take place before we begin painting. You don't have to take anything out of the cabinets though, since we don't paint the inside. And, most drawer handles screw off and allow you to leave things in the drawers.
After taking all hardware and door/drawers off, we will sand all bases and doors/drawers to break the clear coat. This step does create a small amount of dust, but it allows the primer to soak into the wood and attach well.
We take all of the doors/drawers ends home to paint. This allows us to give time between coats. Your bases are painted each morning, then during the afternoons, the team works on your doors/drawers offsite. The underside of the bases is not painted, as it's not visible and is not made with a finished product or cover well.
After the prime coat, our team puts on multiple coats of the finish product (either Emerald or Dynasty). This process has to allow for dry time between coats. Bases are painted in the mornings on site, and door/drawers are painted in the afternoons offsite.
On the final day, the doors/drawers are brought back and all hardware is re-installed. Touch-ups are also performed. We leave extra paint for you, too, in case there are areas that chip during normal wear. The product has a two-week full cure time, so we ask you to be gentle initially with use and not wipe the doors for a couple weeks after completion. You're going to LOVE your "new" cabinets!
When it comes to painting cabinets, there are a few factors that will affect the overall cost. The first is the size of the project. Larger kitchens will obviously require more paint, and more labor, than smaller ones. The second factor is the type of paint used. High-quality paints will last longer and provide a better finish, but they will also be more expensive than basic paints. Finally, the complexity of the project will also affect the price. If the cabinets are very old or have a lot of intricate details, it will take longer to prep and paint them, and the final bill will be higher. With all these factors taken into account, cabinet painting can cost anywhere from $2500 to $7500, depending on the size and scope of the project.
Majority of the time, we don’t paint the inside of cabinets. The inside is not made of real wood which can result in more frequent chipping. If cabinets have glass and you can see the inside, we will paint the inside to achieve a consistent look.
Smaller kitchens will take around a week, while larger kitchens may take a few weeks.
The 5-step process we use has a very high success rate when it comes to no chipping. It is always a possibility with sharp objects touching it. Just in case something happens, we leave a little bit of extra paint for you.
