Kitchen cabinet painting is by far our most popular service. It’s not hard to see why, either! If your cabinets are in good overall condition, and the layout/function meets your needs, painting is a faster, easier, more cost-effective alternative to a full remodel.
Plus, you can choose exactly the style and finish you want for your kitchen with more flexibility for that price point than any other option offers.
But this all leads to the MAIN question we’re asked, and it’s a good one…
How Much Does Painting Cabinets Cost?
There are a LOT of factors at play that all impact cost, but in general you can expect to pay $120-150 per door and drawer for a professional, durable finish.
For an average kitchen, the total price tag could be between $3500 and $5000.
“Can’t I Just Paint My Cabinets Myself?”
We live in a do-it-yourself world right now, with easy access to tutorials and well-intentioned home improvement resources. And yes, you certainly can paint cabinets yourself. But here’s the issue: you get what you pay for! Low-budget projects yield low-budget results that don’t look as good, won’t last as long, and are extremely messy and frustrating to apply. Then, you can either keep the results, or pay more for a professional to fix it.
We don’t mean to sound harsh, but it’s true! And, we’ve fixed enough cabinet painting projects to know that sometimes the truth, even if it’s a little harsh, is important to hear.
Watch Out for Low-Cost Cabinet Painters, Too
In reality, $3,000+ dollars for a fully repainted set of kitchen cabinets, painted by professionals in a controlled environment, is not an expensive project. We totally understand that it doesn’t fit every budget, but for the work, tools, spray shop, and transportation involved, it’s still a reasonable price tag.
We share this because we also have seen a deluge of painting companies that are capitalizing on the trend, suddenly offering cabinet painting services that they really aren’t trained or equipped for. The price tags can be half of what we quote, but we’re genuinely concerned by the quality of work that they produce. Spending $1500 on a project that lasts half as long and never looks right is a huge, expensive disappointment.
Whether you choose Brennan Contracting or not, we want you to get the most value out of your hard-earned dollar.
Take the time to REALLY research their credentials, experience, and the products they use. Ask how many kitchens they’ve painted before, and what they’ll do to protect your home and surrounding surfaces. Ask how they control dust and prevent adhesion issues, and what their prep process includes. Ask too if they offer a warranty, or any kind of guarantee for their work.
You’ll be glad you did!
