The Cabinet Preparation & Painting Process

Starting a cabinet makeover is an exciting journey! To give you an idea of what to expect, here’s a quick rundown of our usual process. 

1) Hardware Removal

Our first step involves meticulously removing the existing cabinets and hardware from cabinet doors. 

This is an ideal time to consider updating your hardware to complement the new style of your cabinets.

2) Surface Prep

Next, we focus on preparing the flat surfaces for painting or staining. This involves a thorough sanding process, using both hand techniques and power equipment. 

For some packages, may also employ chemical stripping to remove old finish.

3) Door Painting/Staining

Time to paint kitchen cabinets! Depending on your preference for a stained or painted finish, this process will vary. 

For painting cabinets, we include primer steps to enhance the durability of the finish.


4) Frame Finishing

Following the doors, we turn our attention to the cabinet frames that remain mounted on the wall. This application is carefully done using hand rollers, brushes, or spray paint.

5) Quality Check

Before reassembling, we conduct a thorough inspection of all freshly painted cabinets. Any necessary touch-ups are completed at this point to ensure a flawless finish.

6) Final Assembly

Finally, we reassemble the cabinet doors and hardware. This step marks the completion of the transformation, presenting you with beautifully updated cabinets that boast a fresh, new look.

How Much Does Cabinet Painting Cost?

The cost of your cabinet refinishing and painting services depends on a few key factors. First, we tally the number of doors and drawers, with prices typically ranging from $99 to $189 each. Other elements that influence the final price include:

  • Cabinet Condition & Material: Wood cabinets, like oak cabinets, for example, might need wood filler to smooth out grain visibility in the final look. Cabinets with heavy grease or dirt accumulation require extensive prep work.
  • Desired Finish: Unique to Mill Creek Painters, we use Envirotek waterborne self-leveling primer and urethane enamel finish in Alberta. This premium finish, akin to glass, is backed by a 10-year warranty.

Before our painting team arrives to work on your kitchen cabinets, we kindly ask that you clear out all items from inside the cabinets. It's best to store these items safely away from the area where we'll be working. This preparation helps ensure a smooth and efficient painting process.

The cost of painting or refinishing kitchen cabinets can vary depending on the current condition of your cabinets, the materials they're made from, and the cost of new hardware like knobs and hinges.

In 2024, the most popular colour choices for kitchen cabinets are white, black, espresso, and grey. These colours are in vogue and can give your kitchen a modern and stylish look. You can also ask your local paint store for their recommendations if you're feeling stuck. 

To paint cabinets, we generally recommend choosing either a polyurethane enamel like Sherwin-Williams Emerald or Benjamin Moore Command. For an even more durable finish, choose a waterborne cabinet lacquer like Renner or Envirolak. Our refinishing service offers both these levels of finish.
