Why Choosing Cabinet Refinishing is the Way to Go for Gorgeous Results

Are you thinking of redoing your kitchen or bathroom cabinets this year? If you’re like many people, you may be considering paint for the job. Here are a few things to know before you commit to painting your cabinets – and potentially ruining them.


Painting – a Disaster for Laminate Cabinets

When it comes to getting cabinets that are personalized to your tastes and current décor, you might think that selecting a lovely shade of paint is the best way to go. Unfortunately, for most kitchen and bathroom cabinets, that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Today’s cabinets are typically made with a laminate covering. This means that having them sanded and painted – even by a professional – isn’t likely to result in what you’re looking for. The finished look can be a disastrous departure from what you imagined – and that’s if it even lasts! Most painted cabinets with laminate components will peel, chip, and sag until you end up wishing you had just replaced them altogether.

Wood Doesn’t Fare Much Better

What if your cabinets are solid wood, though? Won’t that yield a better result with paint? While they may hold paint better than cheaper, composite material cabinets might, wooden cabinets are still not designed to be painted. They are still very prone to peeling, easily-damaged paint, especially in areas where cabinets will see a lot of humidity or wear, such as in the kitchen or bathroom. This makes painting your cabinets a poor choice for almost any homeowner.

So, what can you do? At Assurance Painting, we offer more than just paint – we are also the best cabinet refinishing service in Oklahoma City. Here’s why we recommend refinishing your cabinets over painting:


The Benefits of Refinishing

When you choose refinishing services for your cabinets, you aren’t just splashing a coat of paint over your surface’s problems. You’re completely renovating those surfaces, creating a smoother, more beautiful look – one that can’t be damaged the same way paint can.

Just as with painting, your cabinets will be cleaned, sanded, and prepared for a coating over their entire surface. But when you choose to refinish, that coating will be an industrial glaze that will give your finished cabinets a beautiful shine – one that stands the test of time better than paint ever could!
