Should perfectly fine, solid wood cabinets be painted?

There is nothing wrong with painting solid wood. Stained solid wood showing the grain may be beautiful but trends and personal tastes change over time. Also, it’s more than just aesthetics! Wood needs to be protected from the elements and especially from the chemicals, heat, moisture, etc in the kitchen. A new sprayed factory finish which means applied with a sprayer and not brushes or rollers that leave brush strokes and roller marks will protect the wood much better than the existing old, faded and worn clear coat, so a professionally applied finish will extends the life of your cabinets.

Prepping cabinets for painting

Prepwork is the most important part of painting in general and it’s especially true for kitchen cabinets. Other visible and invisible (like silicone) or cheap latex caulking contamination on the surfaces of all cabinets. All of these will prevent a good bond between the existing surface and the new finish which will result in peeling, fish eye and other problems, no matter what kind of paint is used. Worst of all, a paint finish applied over a surface that hasn’t been prepped properly can not be fixed. The finish will keep failing even if more and more coats are applied on top because the problem is in the foundation. The only way to fix problems like that is to do the job correctly the first time.

What finish to use?

Factory finishes of kitchen cabinets are always some type of lacquer finishes or industrial strength waterborne acrylics. These finishes were designed specifically for kitchen cabinets. They are among the most durable finishes. They resist heat, moisture, chemicals, they don’t stain, easy to clean and the newer ones don’t yellow over time, like some old lacquers. An other very important characteristic of lacquers is that they dry extremely fast. So fast, that they can only be applied by a spray equipment. Once a coat is sprayed, it can be sanded and recoated within 15-20 minutes. This enables professional finishers to apply 2 coats one being a primer and the other the finish product within a very short period of time.

What about latex paint or caulking or oil finishes?

None of those finishes should be applied over kitchen cabinets. Even tough some paint manufacturers market some of their latex products for DIY customers as “cabinet paint”, they are nowhere near as hard, durable and cleanable as lacquers or industrial strength waterborne acrylics. The other major drawback of applying latex or oil based paints is that they dry much slower than lacquers, so applying multiple coats can take days instead of hours.


As mentioned above, only industrial strength waterborne acrylics or lacquer paints should be used to finish kitchen cabinets therefore the only application method is spraying. Never use cheap latex caulking or laytex paints. Latex caulking cannot be sanded and it will crack when using solvent based Pre catalyze lacquer primers. Anytime someone attempts to paint cabinets with a brush and roller, he will be using an inferior paint and in addition to that, the final product will have brush marks and roller marks in it which are tell tale signs of a non-factory finish.


Having your Denver, kitchen cabinets painted is an investment in your property. Having it done in the right way by a pro will be more expensive than DIY but it will increase the value of your kitchen and your real estate. On the other hand, having it down yourself or even by a painter who is not specialized in cabinet finishing will actually decrease the value of your cabinets in addition to being an eye sore.

Spray painting is one way. For this procedure, we will gently remove the cabinet doors and transport them to an offsite spray shop to be sprayed—this gives them a very smooth, firm surface to give the look of brand new cabinets. We’ll take special care to ensure that the finish is precisely smooth, with no roller marks or brush marks. The cabinet boxes are then sprayed with the same paint on-site. We normally apply 2 coats one being a Precatalyze lacquer primer which is a solvent based product of a industrial strength water borne acrylic that hardens like a lacquer paint providing a satin finish to produce a flawless, brand-new surface. We service all areas throughout Colorado including: Parker Co., Littleton Co., Centennial CO, Ft Collins Co., Castle Pines, Erie CO., Thornton colorado, Adams County, Lafayette Colorado, Louisville Colorado, Arapahoe County, Firestone CO, Loveland Colorado, Frank Town Co., Frederick Colorado, Jefferson County, Superior Colorado, Denver County, Broomfield, Colorado Springs CO, Frank Town Co., Lakewood CO, Lafayette Colorado, Littleton, Highlands Ranch, Douglas County, Boulder Co, and all of Castle Rock, Parker Co, centennial Co, Castle Rock Co, Ft Collins Co., Longmont Co, Colorado Springs CO, all of Colorado,.

We do this by keeping all the work at our shop. Once we’ve agreed on the details and the both the client and contractor sign the contract, we’ll set up our workstation and when we do the cabinet boxes and after protecting the area, we’ll start painting. Having limited access to your garage for a few days is better than being unable to use your kitchen for weeks.
