Although cabinet painting might not be the first thing that comes to mind when tackling home renovations, it can significantly uplift your bathroom’s aesthetic. Freshly painted cabinets will make your room feel larger, brighter, and more inviting — and all for a fraction of what a full cabinet replacement would cost.
Before applying that new coat of paint you’ll want to properly prepare the surfaces — which includes priming the cabinets themselves. Primer is crucial because it seals wood grain against stains and creates a better bond between the surface material and any upcoming layers of paint.
After priming, the next step is to clean the cabinets themselves — especially any hardware and accessories that might be stuck on with old adhesives or oils from frequent usage. This can be done by spraying the cabinetry with a degreaser solution and wiping down with a cloth. If this isn’t enough to get rid of stubborn stains, you may need to use a stronger cleaner such as trisodium phosphate (TSP) which can be purchased at most hardware and paint stores with appropriate safety precautions taken.
Once the cabinetry is clean it’s time to prep and mask off the areas you don’t want to paint — including any trim or hinges. This will help ensure that any unwanted paint splatter doesn’t end up on other surfaces and can be removed with ease when the time comes to refinish your kitchen or bathroom.
