Do you know the difference between a good paint job and a bad one on your cabinets? Does it matter for a cabinet that you hire a licensed professional? Can you see a difference between a stroke by a professional painter and a hasty one done by an amateur? 

It’s hard to see an elevated standard in a cabinet painting if you’ve never had one done before. The biggest difference is in the evenness of the coat. A sloppy job will haunt you until you get it fixed with its unevenness. A well-painted cabinet looks like it came in that color of paint or stain.

Fixtures, handles, and attachments must be removed or covered up before painting or staining

Although people know what looks good to them, the cabinet painting has different benchmarks than, say, fence painting for quality of the service. There’s much more detail, such as if the fixtures, handles, and attachments are removed or just covered with tape. In a well-done job, there’s no paint or stain touching these items, because they were removed and restored with tender loving care. There is no mess or evidence of a paint job around the cabinets, because they have all been properly taped off and treated respectfully. 

Experience and the proper methods make the difference in painting cabinets. Image by of Basurto Painting.
