Quality Cabinet Painting and Refinishing

Your kitchen is the hub of the house. Family, in-laws, and friends all end up there at every event. Its the gathering place where families talk and kids can do homework and projects. Are you ready to make the kitchen a place for everyone to love again? The Cabinets are probably one of the most used parts of the home and keeping them looking great can be a challenge after years of use. We have focused on cabinet painting to be able to provide you with a quality cabinet long-lasting finish that will look great for years to come.

Cabinet Painting and Refinishing Spray Booth

Cabinet painting and refinishing has been a large part of our painting business for the last 10 years and with the trends now going away from stained cabinets and more towards painted cabinets, we have adapted for the demand by installing a professional paint booth to do all of our cabinet spraying in. The cabinet pieces are sprayed, and left to dry, in a dust-free and contaminate-free area.

We take pride in every door and drawer front that is finished in the spray shop.

We only use the finest Italian cabinet paint available to the refinishing market. This material is made with the finest pigments and binders in the refinishing world. Cabinets are a valuable part of your home. They are also one of the most used parts of your home, and for this reason, we do not take shortcuts and use the best materials and best equipment available. That is what Carolina Painting does.

New Cabinet Doors and Drawer Fronts

Cabinet Door Style Samples

Many of our customers are often considering completely removing the old kitchen cabinets and replacing them with new ones because they are outdated or a dog has chewed a door. We can replace all the cabinet doors and drawer fronts to update your kitchen while using your current cabinet boxes. This gives you a brand new kitchen look without the brand new kitchen price.

All of our cabinet doors and drawer fronts are made of solid maple and never from MDF, so you don’t have to worry about swelling if they get wet. We have many styles to pick from, ranging from Shaker Style to Custom Raised Panel doors.

Cabinet Hinge Upgrades? We have you covered.

All new cabinet doors will be have new concealed european soft-close hinges installed unless you have another hinge you would like us to use. Our hidden hinges are a very high quality hinge used by most high-end cabinet builders.

With new doors and drawer fronts, you are on the way to a new kitchen. You don’t have to reface the boxes because we prepare those for the new paint. We make everything look brand new after our cabinet painting. We prefer this method versus covering all the facings with a thin layer of wood.

Cabinet Painting Frequently Asked Questions

Cabinets can vary from $1800 up to $10k. It all depends on the number of doors, drawers, and specialty items we are painting. A good way to get an idea is to use our Virtual Cabinet Estimator. It will give you an estimate immediately.

Yes, as long as the melamine is still intact and not coming loose from the mdf door underneath. We prime with a bonding primer and you will never have a problem with the paint.

If the melamine is peeling, we can also provide you with new solid maple doors.

85% of the cabinets we paint are only painted on the exterior. This does include both sides of the doors. We can price it both ways for you.

An average set of cabinets will take us 5 working days. That is 2 days in the home, 2 days in the shop, and 1 day back to reinstall everything. We like to start cabinet jobs on Mondays so we can give you your kitchen back by Friday evening.
