Can refaced cabinets be painted? Short answer is Yes. But what is refacing? Refacing is when the existing cabinet doors, drawers, and frames are covered with new material, such as veneer, laminate, or wood. This can give the cabinets a fresh, new look without the cost and hassle of replacing them.
Because you are keeping your cabinet boxes, you aren’t sending a lot of waste to the landfill, making refacing much more environmentally friendly. With cabinet refacing, you’ll have much less mess and disruption to your daily routine. On the downside, to get the best results when refacing cabinets, boxes must be in perfect shape. All of the boxes stay the same and in the same place. When you reface your cabinets, the insides of the cabinets usually remain the same.
After the refacing process, the cabinets can be painted like any other. This can be done by a professional painter or the homeowner, depending on their experience level and confidence. It is essential to properly prepare the surfaces of the cabinets before painting. This includes sanding, priming, cleaning, and masking.
When painting refaced cabinets, it is essential to use high-quality paints and finishes designed explicitly for cabinetry. This will help ensure the paint adheres properly to the surfaces and provides a durable and long-lasting finish.
