Every person may want to refinish the cabinets for different reasons. The need to make over dated or mismatched cabinets can be the reasons for. The tips in this article can help you if you are thinking of refinishing the cabinets.
Before doing anything, set a temporary kitchen.
This is because refinishing can take more time than you expect. This is to keep away from the kitchen that you want to refinish. Refinishing can interfere with your personal life and the project if a temporary kitchen is not set aside.
Clean your kitchen thoroughly to ensure it is completely clean. This is essential for the long-term results. Make sure all the grease, chemical remains, soaps and all dirt is completely cleaned up.
Never be in hurry to sanding off the varnish before you paint. This is because you don’t have to do that. The reason is that the present primes are good covers and stick easily to any surface. But if you find it is hard for it to adhere to the cabinet’s surface, you are allowed to sand a little to make the surface rough.
A paper plate can be used to ensure that he drips of the paint do not get outside the paint can. You have to be cautious to avoid any kind of mess.
Any paint rings that can be stepped on can be avoided by placing the paint can on top of the plate.
Gloss paint can be best used in the kitchen and in your bathroooms. This is because the gloss paint makes cleansing easier that the flat paint since the gloss paint is water and dirt resistant. But if you prefer flat paints, you can use them but you have to cover them with a varnish so it can stay longer. But if you want to save some money, just use the gloss paint.
Consider buying disposable supplies to avoid cleaning up after the work is done. You can buy cheap paint trays and sponges so as after you finish with them, you throw them into a trash instead of cleaning up. The painting brushes and rollers should not be the cheaper ones since they are hard to clean up after the work is done.
In refinishing the cabinets, patience works best. It is not an easier work so you have to take your time in each and every step. Do not forget to wear protective clothes. Make sure your room has adequate ventilation.
Consider reinstalling your hardware. This can be done after you are done with the painting and all your cabinets have dried well. You will have to screw back all the knobs and also screw cabinet back to their cabinet frames. This is all you need to do while refinishing your cabinets.
