Some Common Questions

What is Cabinet Refinishing?

Cabinet refinishing is a process that preserves as much of your original cabinet framework, doors, and drawers as possible. Even though we are using the original material, you get to enjoy an attractive, modern look when everything is finished.

Cabinet refinishing involves removing all your cabinet doors & drawer boxes. Then we prep them for painting by cleaning any residue or build-up and fixing minor defects in the wood. The doors and drawer fronts are professionally primed and painted off-site. So if you’re worried about the mess of kitchen cabinet painting in Rockford, IL, we’ve got you covered.

We will also prep the cabinet boxes and face frames and apply new matching panels or primer and paint in the color of your choice. We then re-install all the doors and drawer boxes. Depending on the type of cabinets you have, the hinges can be updated to a more modern style if requested. Adding new knobs and handles can also create a more modern look. When cabinets are painted a new color, the difference is very dramatic!

Will the Grain Show Through?

The most common cabinets that homeowners want painted are oak. Please note that the heavy graining of this wood type can sometimes make it challenging to paint them without any of the grain showing through. We have a process called grain filling that eliminates that concern if you wish.

How do I start Cabinet Refinishing?

The process starts with a complimentary in-home consultation to discuss the state of the cabinets, review some design options, and create a clear price estimate for work. If you are happy with the estimate, we will make the appointment and schedule your cabinet transformation!
