How to paint kitchen cabinets

Residential realty sites like Zillow, Trulia or Houzz get a ton of traffic. Zillow alone receives as many as 36 million visits a month. Some of it is serious home seekers and some is people just looking. But, when you’re browsing the online gallery or slideshow of a home, what is one of the first things you look at when you come to the kitchen? The kitchen cabinets.

The cabinets dominate the kitchen scene. They frame in the utilities (think sink) and appliances (think oven); they may form an entire wall or two of the room, and they usually come with unique hardware or other custom touches that make them an expression of the current or original owners’ personal taste. Kitchen cabinets do hard, everyday work and they take a beating. If the decision is not to replace, but renew the kitchen cabinets, the homeowner is left with the question of how to paint kitchen cabinets?

No doubt, you know the familiar jingle, “Ask Sherwin-Williams.” And if you’re going to do-it-yourself, we think it’s absolutely great advice. It’s the paint ONiT uses. We believe in the product, we use it exclusively, and enjoy the great Sherwin-Williams customer support. In advising customers doing their own kitchen cabinet painting, here are the five steps Sherwin-Williams recommends: 

  • Remove Doors and Hardware
  • Prep, Sand and Prime (you may have to come back to sanding after priming)
  • Sand again after a waiting period
  • Apply a first coat
  • Apply a second coat, reinstall new or existing hardware, and remount your cabinets.

That sounds pretty straightforward, right? It can be. If it’s the route for you, then take a look at the five recommendations in a little more detail.
