REFACING VS. REFINISHING YOUR KITCHEN CABINETS

New and current homeowners alike are always looking for ways to update their home, especially their kitchen. While doing a complete overhaul can be quite expensive, there are other ways to achieve the look, one being refinishing your cabinets. Changing the look of your cabinets can give this active space in your home a whole new feel.

While the most expensive option if refacing your cabinets (changing out hardware and all the doors and cabinets with new ones or applying a laminate), the most effective option is refinishing. This can be achieved by either painting or staining the fronts and either cleaning and installing the previous hardware or upgrading. This option also offers your best return on investment.

Just as the painted wood work and doors in your home need periodic painting, so the kitchen cabinets will also need maintenance. An advantage to painted cabinets is that any nicks or worn areas can easily be touched-up, thereby extending the life of the paint job.

Cabinets in colors can be very exciting in the kitchen: in postal blue, light pastels, whisper gray and sunny yellow can all create surprising results. Decorating magazines often show cabinets in spruce green, Navy blue and weathered or faux finishes. Typically, we tend to see homeowners keeping with a clean white finish or a modern black color.


Small to medium kitchens can be completed in as little as three days, while larger kitchens can take upwards of five days. Spectrum Painting is able to offer either a brush or spray finish, depending on the job and customer preference. In terms of spraying, we are able to achieve this on site or in our shop, depending on the work space, etc. We have a portable spray system we are able to assemble in your garage or basement, or we can take all the cabinet fronts off and transport them to our shop, where we’re able to spray them.

One of the very best you will find in this area. Highly competent, punctual and with an aim to please. Spectrum has painted most of the interior of my home and most recently, my large outdoor deck. When they are here, I can relax knowing they will treat my home like it's their own. There's an added comfort knowing that there's a responsive team leader present on each job to whom I can address any questions or concerns. Don't go for the low-end companies. Price is what you pay, but lasting value is what you get.

Entire staff, from sales rep to team were professional. They were very responsive and the colorist had immediate availability. The crew was polite, knew what they were doing, worked constantly, they liked my dogs and my dogs liked them!

We used Spectrum Painting to paint our laundry room, kitchen, living room, office, powder room, sitting room, 2 story foyer and hall, 2 bedrooms, master bedroom, ceilings in kitchen, living room, and foyer, 3 car garage, shutters on 13 windows, and the front door with 2 sidelights. In addition to the walls being painted all doors, baseboards, window frames, crown molding, and other trim were included. Furthermore, we had a wallpaper border removed and crown molding added in the master bedroom. The paint job took less than a week and turned out great! We could not be happier with all of the colors we chose (with the help of Pam) and the way the it turned out. Overall, the sales team, including Rich Lauretta and John Mangiafreno, the project manager Rafael, and the design consultant Pam Steinhilber were all very professional and a pleasure to work with.
