South Slope Cabinet Painter and Backsplash Replacement

There's no firm definition for South Slope's boundaries in Brooklyn, but Roots Cafe is here with New York-grown coffee beans, and Cafe Steinhof presents a slice of Austria with  Wiener schnitzel, cheese spaetzle and kölsch beer for starters. Some homeowners get involved in the 6/15 Green community garden, and others call in Paintworks to update their kitchen. We immediately embraced their vision of changing out dull wood kitchen cabinets with round knobs on everything for the sleek appeal of soft cream cupboard doors and drawer fronts sporting 3" contemporary hardware and a nice white subway tile backsplash.

The work began with removing old hardware, patching those holes and taking the cabinet doors to our shop where we primed them before applying 5 spray coats of tough enamel paint. Without disturbing our fine workmanship, we drilled new holes and installed the classy new hardware. We took out the backsplash and put in new tiles, then painted the cabinet edges and exposed panels before bringing back the totally new-look doors and drawers. It turned out to be kind of a jaw-dropping renovation, much more compatible with the stainless steel appliances and white counters.

Refreshing your cabinets is a challenging yet fulfilling project. This is especially when you have to fit a slim microwave into one of the cabinet spaces. We were recently tasked with installing custom shelves to make an ultra slim microwave fit. We were able to cut into the wall directly behind, allowing the cabinet to slide further back into the space. Once that was completed we sprayed the cabinets with Benjamin Moore Templeton Gray. Spraying cabinets will give you the smoothest finish. We loved the vibe in this home and enjoyed the whole process.

Kitchen Cabinet Painting Westchester

We had the chance to use the awesome Benjamin Moore color Knoxville Gray and it turned out great! This client went bold and it paid off! Fresh with new cabinet hardware this quick 4 day project brought a complete new energy to their kitchen. After the doors were sprayed with 6 coats and fine grit sanding they were ready to be reinstalled. We then painted the cabinet webbing and frame and put the doors back in. Very grateful to paint such a nice Westchester kitchen.

Painting Custom Cabinets in New Jersey

When this client bought their new home they decided to gut renovate the kitchen. They had gorgeous custom millwork cabinets made. The cabinets were beautiful but they needed to be painted to really take them to the next level.

It is a privilege to be entrusted with spraying these high end cabinet doors, drawer fronts and all the trim on the finely-crafted cabinetry. This job required 6 coats of lacquer, allowing it to dry completely before sanding for smoothness and enhanced adherence of the next coat. The owner chose Simply White in Satin finish for that fresh, classic appeal that crosses comfortably into a cottage style, sleek contemporary atmosphere or transitional presence. All the professional painters at Paintworks are trained and experienced in the particulars of cabinet renovation with the goal of exceeding customer expectations as well as protecting the indoor environment.

Kitchen renovation is one of those home improvement projects that reaps dividends not only with homeowner enjoyment, but also return on investment (ROI). It is a wonderful, affordable way to take your kitchen from mundane to marvelous and keep your bank account with a positive balance.

Refreshing Kitchen Cabinets in NYC

This client just moved into a new apartment and was looking for a way to brighten their kitchen. The cabinets were in great shape but the dark color wasn’t matching the new home vibe that they were looking for. We stepped in to paint the cabinets with Benjamin Moore White Dove semi-gloss to give the kitchen a quick makeover with minimal amount of disturbance for the client. The cabinets look brand new. We are always grateful for paint cabinets in Midtown East Manhattan.

Beautiful Jade Green Cabinet Painting in NYC

It's a bird, it's a plane. No, it's a plant, it's a mineral, it's a paint color! Jade the plant and jade the mineral are known the world over for its rich shades of lush green. And as a paint color, it makes a bold statement on kitchen cupboards in West Village. Here, among the historical buildings and hipster culture, one homeowner decided up raise the bar on kitchen renovation by having us at Paintworks & Decorating refinish the cabinet doors and drawer fronts in a jade green.

It's a balancing act of protecting adjacent rooms, appliances, furniture and other kitchen accoutrements while covering the old finish with the new bright jade green. We are experienced in removing all the kitchen cabinet doors to an off-site location for this triple application of a lacquer kind of paint, while carefully handling the cupboard infrastructure or webbing and drawer fronts in the home. All the hardware and drawer pulls also get taken off and stored during the process. We sand lightly between coats on everything being painted, and this special paint then dries to a hard surface, adding to its lustrous look and smooth touch.

West Village is the perfect place for jade kitchen cupboards for its eclectic style and multi-cultural population. Green is, after all, the most common color in the world for Mother Nature's presence, and what better way to bring a little of the outdoors inside? We thought the result was as stunning as some of the real estate prices in the neighborhood, but we also embrace the brilliant idea of protecting one's investment with a wild splash of jade green for refreshing a kitchen.

Painting New High End Luxury Cabinets In Manhattan

One of the most stunning upgrades to a kitchen, without gutting it and spending the same as a new BMW 5-Series, is refinishing the cabinets. It can take mediocre to amazing with Paintworks & Decorating at the helm. This locally-owned, Big Apple-based company arrived at one Upper East Side Manhattan residence wearing their best paint pants with hand tools, power tools, masking tape and sheets of plastic, sandpaper and a sufficient supply of high quality Sherwin-Williams lacquer to get the job done.

This project entailed removing 45 cabinet doors and drawer fronts, which were sprayed off-site in a multiple-step process. The kitchen appliances, floors and countertops were meticulously protected by masking in plastic. Paintworks & Decorating is intimately familiar with everything connected to paint, stain and lacquer, and for this job, sanding, spraying, curing to a hard finish and repeating twice is standard operating procedure.

The lacquer dries to a hard finish which is incredibly smooth for the sophisticated process of diligently and evenly spraying, letting dry, then sanding appropriately, three times, for the sleek exterior [matte or glossy] that elevates the dull kitchen to a delightful, dynamic space -- after, of course, they carted all 45 doors and the drawer fronts back and perfectly re-installed them.

Painting Large Built-in Living Room Cabinets

Rather than remove this built in shelving unit, the new homeowner opted to fix the holes and repaint the whole thing in colors that fit them. They chose a vibrant color that makes the cabinets feel new and unique. Painting everything else with fresh white completed the transformation. 2 coats of Benjamin Moore Cabinet coat with sanding in between the coats allowed the paint to go on smooth and bond properly. Love painting cabinets all over Brooklyn and NYC.

Painting Kitchen Cabinets in Hoboken

We love being the go-to Hoboken kitchen cabinet painter because the client is always speechless at the results. This client had recently replaced their countertop and was looking to update the rest of the kitchen to match the new modern vibe. We quickly removed all doors and drawers fronts so we could spray them off-site with multiple coats of Benjamin Moore cabinet coat. With careful sanding in between the coats we returned to paint the built-in cabinet webbing and reinstall the doors. The difference between the before and after is so drastic the client wasn’t even sure they were the same cabinets! As Hoboken kitchen cabinet painting contractors we have seen the impact a cabinet color change can make on the whole kitchen. We are proud of this project in particular because we felt honored to be the last step in the client’s kitchen remodel.

Painting Cabinets: Give Your Cabinets A Quick Makeover

Dated dark cabinets got your kitchen or bathroom feeling a bit gloomy? Professionally painting your NYC cabinets can brighten your room, your day, your life! Last month we had another great opportunity to help a homeowner revive her kitchen. The left side of the picture above shows the cabinets before being painted. The cabinets were dark, chipped, stained, and overall showing major wear and tear. Our first step was to remove all doors and front pieces of drawers to be sprayed off site. While the removable pieces were curing after their 1st coat we started to paint the webbing or built-in cabinetry. The client chose White Mountain semi-gloss as the new color. We sprayed 4 coats of Benjamin Moore Cabinet Coat sanding in between each coat to ensure proper curing and coverage of the wood grain. The client was stunned when we returned to reinstall the cabinet doors. She couldn't believe it was the same cabinets! We love painting cabinets in NYC because the transformation is always a fantastic reminder of what can be achieved with the right products and techniques. Local NYC cabinet painting contractors say consider painting before replacing!
