When you want to remodel or change your kitchen look the first thing crosses your mind is to change your kitchen cabinet color. Painting your kitchen cabinet with a new color or two is the easiest and cheapest way to get a new remodel. But, sometimes you as a homeowner commit some mistakes when painting your kitchen cabinet for new refreshment. What these common mistakes people may make when painting their cabinets are! Let’s figure out.
First of all, you may miss planning well for that painting project, in other words, you may forget to measure your kitchen cabinet dimensions to know the exact painting amount needed. Remove handles, and all hardware or joints and keep them in a safe place. Another mistake in that regard is not to remove cabinet drawers and doors to paint them separately.
The second mistake is not sanding well your kitchen cabinet to prepare it for the proper painting project. One of the features of a successful kitchen cabinet painting remodel is sanding all the surfaces and edges well including doors and drawers to make it smooth and easy to paint.
Another mistake to avoid is the wrong choice of color and paint shade. In other words, when it comes to new kitchen cabinet paint you need to choose the color or two that matches the overall style and color scheme firstly. Then, get the right shade of that color when choosing from the paint colors and get a sample to try at a hidden area to be sure that it is your favorite selected color.
Never neglect to prime your kitchen cabinet to make it ready for painting. Even if you don’t change the color too much far from your existing one; priming is way important to get a successful perfect appearance.
The last common mistake we could commit is not waiting enough to leave the cabinet dry from one step to another; from priming and first coat to the last coat of paint. We should wait for the cabinet to dry and then start at the second coat of paint.
