Choosing the Right Cabinet Solution Don’t Replace, Don’t Reface – Renew with N-Hance. If you’ve had your wood cabinets for years and want to restore their original life and luster then N-Hance is an option for you. N-Hance is the most affordable and usually the quickest way to bring life back into dreary looking cabinets. An older, well-worn set of cabinets may appear to be in such bad condition that they need to be completely replaced or sanded down and refaced. But unless you want a completely different layout, N-Hance may be the right solution. The Smart Alternative to Cabinet Painters Many professional cabinet painters apply a layer or two of paint to change the color and call it a day. N-Hance’s process, on the other hand, does more than just cover up an old look with a new one. N-Hance thoroughly cleans and primes the cabinets, ensuring the best adhesive surface. Unlike traditional cabinet painters who often leave the grain of the wood exposed, N-Hance offers a solution that will cover the grain and give your cabinets a cleaner, on-trend appearance. And while it can take over a week for cabinet painters to complete their work and let it dry, our Lightspeed® process cures the finish immediately! Learn how N-Hance can help by visiting our cabinet painting page here. N-Hance Cabinet Renewal Options Basic Renewal – The Basic Cabinet Renewal job requires no color shift or color change and like the classic floor job, has minimal wear on the wood surface. Grease and dirt are easily removed and touch-up is performed quickly and timely. You will really love the convenience, along with the shine and luster this service will bring to your tired cabinets. Items can be left in the cabinets and drawers without interfering with the work. Unlike traditional cabinet refacing, most basic jobs are completed in one day, which is both economic and convenient Color Shift – The cabinet Color Shift slightly warms the tone of the wood without covering the wood grain. Color Shifts are generally performed to remove the yellowing look wood gets from aged oil based finishes. This is a great if you want a little darker tone to your cabinets. This option can really warm up a kitchen and give it a new look. The Color Shift is a great service to restore any sun-faded areas. This service typically takes 2-3 days to complete. Color Change – The complete Color Change on cabinets involves a much more dramatic effect. Often the change will involve going from a golden oak or whitewash finish to a cherry, walnut or black tone. Our process far surpasses the results you’ll get from cabinet painters. Simply select any sample cabinet color or finish style in the Design Center and N-Hance can generally match it. A Color Change takes 3-5 days to complete. Color Options Many kitchen cabinet painters offer a variety of colors, but N-Hance offers hundreds of different refinishing options, so you can find the perfect color to match your own style. If that seems overwhelming to you, we are more than happy to help you choose the color that best fits your kitchen. Before we refinish your cabinets, we will walk you through each step of the process and make sure that you are perfectly satisfied with your selection.

Home>How To How to Paint Kitchen Cabinets A makeover doesn’t necessarily mean replacing those gloomy cabinets. You can clean them up and brush on some new paint—and within a weekend take that kitchen from dreary to sunny. By Jennifer Stimpson of This Old House magazine Get Started Photo by Kolin Smith Your cavelike kitchen feels that way because the dark cabinets have sucked all the light out of the room. But a brighter makeover doesn’t necessarily mean replacing those gloomy boxes with all-new cabinets. As long as the frames and doors are structurally sound, you can clean them up and brush on some new paint—and within a weekend take that kitchen from dreary to sunny. As This Old House ­senior technical editor Mark Powers shows, all you need is some strong cleaner, sandpaper, a paintbrush, and a little elbow grease. What you don’t need is a whole lot of money, as the transformation will cost you a fraction of even the cheapest new cabinets. And that’s news that should sure light up your day. Step One // How to Paint Kitchen Cabinets Table Illustration Illustration by Gregory Nemec Overview Painting kitchen cabinets is, like any painting job, a simple task. But mastering the perfect glassy finish is all in the prep work. Before brush ever hits wood, there has to be a lot of time devoted to getting the surface ready to accept paint. That means properly cleaning, sanding, and priming every inch of the surface, or the finish color won’t stick well. Cleaning is the most important step in the process. Years of greasy fingerprints and cooking splatters can leave a layer of grime that inhibits paint adhesion. You can remove most of the gunk with TSP substitute (a cleaner from DAP or Savogran) or a degreaser—the former if the cabinets are not too dirty, or the stronger degreaser if the grime is thick—but it may take a couple of passes. After that, you’ll need to rough up the surface with some 100-grit sandpaper to help the paint stick. The primer you use can also make or break the finish. To get a glassy surface, you need to use a “high build” sandable primer, such as Eurolux from Fine Paints of Europe, to best fill the wood and even the surface. The sandable part of that equation is imperative, so that you can smooth the surface before painting on the finish coat. You may even need two coats of primer to completely fill the grain. To keep the doors and drawers flat as the paint levels, make yourself a pronged drying rack by drilling screws up through several pieces of scrap wood. That way you can flip your work as soon as it’s dry to the touch. Also, screw cup hooks into the edges of doors and drawers so you can grab hold and move them without fingerprinting the paint; then hang them up for out-of-the-way drying. The formula of finish paint you use contributes to the smooth look. Traditionally, painting cabinets for a high-traffic area such as a kitchen required using oil-based paints. However, working with oils can be messy, and the fumes are toxic. Fortunately, while latex paints will never quite self-level and flow as well as oils, they’re getting close. Latex formulas specified for cabinetry—labeled “100% acrylic”—will create an even, durable finish. And, in many cases, they’re also low in volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, which make that noxious paint smell. As long as you’re sprucing things up, consider changing the hardware or putting on a faux finish for that added wow factor. $200 Project Cost 3 days Estimated Time 12345 Skill: Moderate A smooth finish requires careful, patient sanding between coats.
