If you’re planning a kitchen cabinet painting project, you’ve likely come up with a long list of questions. What colors should you choose? Which finish is the most durable and longest lasting? Should you coordinate your cabinet repainting and kitchen repainting projects? Among all of these considerations, it’s easy to lose sight of the logistics. Cabinet painting is a great way to save money, reduce your workload, and give your kitchen a makeover, but those things can only be accomplished if you work with the right partner. And, more importantly, if you ask the right questions! Let’s look at three questions you need to ask before you hire a professional to work on your project.
1. What kitchen cabinet paints do you use?
Anyone who’s been to the hardware store knows that there are countless paints on the market. It takes a lot of knowledge and experience to know what paints are best for each application. Kitchens, especially, require more considerations, as high heat, high humidity, and frequent cleaning can take a toll on nearly any paint. At Van Tuinen Painting, we use only the highest quality paints, typically those from Benjamin Moore, Pratt & Lambert and Sherwin Williams. These paints have a proven ability to hold up to and withstand the hazards of the kitchen.
2. What is your cabinet painting process?
While we aim to make your kitchen cabinet painting project as hassle-free as possible, you will likely need to do some light preparation. Usually, you’ll only need to clear your countertops, relocate small appliances, and empty any cabinets if the interiors will be painted. Before your painters arrive, you’ll want to know what their process is and what they need from you. The easier you can make it for them to get in and out, the shorter the project, which allows you to get back into your new, revamped kitchen in no time.
3. Will you care for my home?
Whenever you invite someone into your home, you want to know that they’re going to respect it. You’ve spent a lot of time, money, and effort turning it into a comfortable and welcoming place. So, when you’re hiring a painting team, you want to know that they’re going to take care of it. At Van Tuinen Painting, we will ensure all areas not receiving paint are thoroughly covered for protection from paint splatters. We will also clean up the area after our painting is completed.
At Van Tuinen Painting, we strive to offer our clients the most comprehensive interior and exterior painting services in the area. If you’re considering revamping your kitchen, we encourage you to reach out to us today to discuss how we can help.
